Re: ASRock AM3+ 970 Extreme 3
What are you using to test RAM frequency?
If you're using CPU-Z does it show 800MHz on the Memory tab?
With my rig I had to manually set the DRAM Frequency to DDR3-1600.
Then I had to go into DRAM timing control and enter the settings - mine were shown in the BIOS as Profile 1 and I just copied the values - tCL 9, tRCD 9, etc.
My Kingston HyperX Blu requires 1.65V to run @1600 and 1.50V @1333, 1066 and 800 so I manually set the DRAM Voltage at 1.650V.
