Hi people, Sorry to bother you
I just upgraded my PCs CPU and GPU, I know that before doing so I had specially set my Dominator PC28500 C5 to run at 800Mhz with Cas 4-5-5-12 timings.
After upgrading the CPU It seems to have downgraded my Ram. In the bios It is unlinked and set to 800Mhz (I realize I could set it to 1066) but CPU Z shows that its running at 400Mhz, If I set it to 1066 it shows 533Mhz.
Is there some kind of multiplier that this new CPU has set in place because according to the bios its running at the set speeds but in CPU-Z it shows this cut in half.
I have uploaded a picture to show this. Strangely it says the max bandwidth is PC6400 (400Mhz)
here's some more CPU-z pics
the CPU I just added is a E8400 at 3Ghz (333 x 9) on 1333 FSB. I just don't understand how this could happen just changing the CPU.
Thanks if you can help.
