I am having some interesting problems with my brand new i7 build. Specs below.
Intel(R) Core i7-965 Extreme Edition 3.2 GHz 8M L3 Cache LGA1366
EVGA X58 3X SLI Intel X58 Chipset SLI/CrossFireX Mainboard Triple-Channel DDR3/1600
6GB (2GBx3) DDR3/1600MHz Memory Module OCZ-Gold
Creative Labs X-FI XtremeGamer Fatal1ty Pro 24-BIT PCI Sound Card [+135]
2x NVIDIA GeForce GTX280 1GB 16X PCI Express
Windows Vista Home Basic 64-bit
The system is running at a clock speed lower than its stock 3.2ghz (this may be due to intel speedstep, butI don't know for sure and am looking for confirmation as the speed never steps up anywhere I can read it). System properties says it is a 3.2ghz processor but then says 2.65 beside that. 3dMark Vantage also said it was running at 2.7.
Also, the only place that shows I have 6gb of ram is System Properties. The task manager and 3dmark vantage all just show 2gb. I double checked the mobo to make sure it was all plugged in properly. It was all in place well and in the order on the board that was specified for 3 sticks of ram. I have attached screenshots to help you see what I am seeing. Needing some help/clarification on these issues as it may just be me not knowing something.
Hope someone knows what is up.
