Default PC3200 200mhz?

I just was looking at CPU-Z and it said my RAM was PC3200 (200mhz) I thought PC3200 was 400mhz?

You got the numbers switched around PC3200 is DDR400 and doesnÂ’t mean 400MHz usually you take the DDR number and divide it by to get your rams actual speed.

For example DDR600 will be running at 300MHz

DDR means Double data rate. So 200mhz is effectively 400mhz, because it does twice as much with one cycle.
