Default Memory clock question

Okay, so I just installed 2 more sticks of 1g ram. Upon booting my computer I noticed it is recognized as DDR2 667. Shouldn't it be DDR2 800? I made sure that all my sticks are the same specs, but that just seemed kind of awkward.

Default Re: Memory clock question

You can increase the dram ratio (i think thats what its called) and get it back up to DDR2-800.
Sometimes motherboards will default the the lowest possible ram speed.

*edit* It's not a huge difference, but its a few frames that might come in handy someday
