hello today i just finished builidng my i3 3220 build and when i downloaded cpu-z it says my cpu is 1600mhz but every 5-10 seconds it jumps to 3300mhz for like 0.5sec is that normal when im not doing anything on my pc? http://valid.canardpc.com/2702730
and also as you can see on the left it says my ram is 800mhz ? is that normal aswell? but i have a 1600mhz ram Corsair xms3
And also is everything right with my pc build as seeing from the picture?
P.S im just using gt 520 for about a month then when i get money i will buy the 7850
Couldn't tell you why they choose to do it that way, it's just the way it is. I believe it had something to do with the fact that DDR2 is two channel, and it's 800mhz per channel, but you still multiple the DDR3 by two as well... so who knows. Not me, I just know that you multiply it. (want to learn more? Google it ) About the 1333, it shouldn't say that. Might be a mobo limiting issue? What mobo do you have. Can you change it to 1600?
Asus P8H61-MX USB3 says here http://valid.canardpc.com/2702730 and yesit was auto and i changed it to 1600mhz but when i go to tools and then informations it comes out with ram info etc and on the left it says Maximum Bandwidth something like that and next to it 1333mhz if you want i can make a pic with my phone and upload it?
