So i have 4 gigs or 1066 ram but it is only running at 800. Under bios it's set to auto, in which case in CPU-Z it shows it running at 400mhz, double date rate at 800. So I set it to to manual and choose 533mhz and now it runs at 266.7mhz. So I assume in bios it's taking into consideration the double data rate and cpu-z is not.
So I tried setting it to 1066 via bios once, and my computer did not boot up correctly and it told me to set everything in bios to original settings and restart. Why is this? This is my first attempt at tweaking ram, i've only done cpu and gpu overclocks.
Here's a SS of cpu-z. Those timings are pretty bad I'm sure. What's with the fsb ratio or w/e? I heard it's best to be at 1:1. do i need to do that, and how?
This one here is more troubling to me.
It shows the max bandwidth at pc2 6400 or 800 mhz. Why is this? Just under that it says its 1066 ram. I'm so confused. Thanks in advance for any help
