DDR 1600 Running at 667 MHZ * 2 - Don't think it's a CPU limitation


Recommended Posts

Hello - I have 2x2 Corsair DDR3 1600 MHZ. According to Speccy, they're running at 667 MHZ. I have read through some of the forums - and when others have asked the question, they have been told that they're CPU limits the speed of their RAM. I don't think that's the case with me - but I am no expert.


Here are some selected speccy results. I can't cut and paste - so I'll try and copy relevant items. Please let me know if I missed something important.
