Info about actural memory speed


Recommended Posts


I've recently upgraded my pc from the scratch.

I've purchased a 2x4gb memory 1600 Mhz memory kit (part number CMX8GX3M2A1600C9.


the memory run flawlessy, but the bios/uefi recognized them as 1066 MHZ.

can you confirm that that is the speed the ram is running at (at the present i've a celeron G530 cpu) and not the actual speed?

The speed at which the memory will run at will be determined by the CPU and CPU/FSB, most Celeron's will have to run the memory at DDr1066 and in order to run higher than this would need to be over clocked.
