Default Memory Frequency

I have 2x512 Ultra DDR2 PC4200 533mhz in Duel Channel on my Asus P5AD2 Premium

How can I check my memory's frequency
I've heard that most of the time memory is underclocked
How can I raise the clock

Help is appreciated for a clocking newbie

I guess I should have posted this in the overclocking section

My bad

Get CPU-Z and check the speed. Reply back with the freq.

It should not underclock itself unless your fsb cant handle it, or your board does not support that speed.

CPU-Z or PC Wizard, but one of the more common ones is CPU-Z.

Hrm, your FSB probably isn't high enough to support the full 533mhz, and there is a small bottleneck with 3:4. You have a P4 right ? 1:1 is optimal.
