    Question Is my memory really running at 1600MHz?

    Motherboard: GA-Q77M-D2H
    RAM: 4 x 8GB Corsair XMS3 Vengeance DDR3 PC12800/1600MHz CL9

    The motherboard defaults to 1333MHz memory speed and I've done the following to get the correct 1600MHz:
    1. Enabled XMP Profile 1 in BIOS Advanced Memory Settings
    2. Set Memory Multiplier to Auto so Memory Frequency shows as 1600MHz


    Still, the BIOS start page (M.I.T.) is showing Memory Frequency 1330MHz
    And when running memtest86+ it shows 665MHz (DDR3-1330MHz)

    What speed is my RAM actually running at?
    Thanks
    Mike

    according to that its still 1330mhz

    have you tried setting the s.p.d system memory multiplier to 8x or 10x to give you 1600mhz? the cpu bclk will also affect the ram speed

    look in cpu-z memory tab to see ram speed

    Yes, I have tried setting Memory Multiplier to explicit values instead of Auto, with the same result.

    strange its not showing the dram frequency,timings are for 1600mhz though

    do you have easytune installed? try looking in the memory section to see what speed the ram is running at

    32gb is a lot of memory to run at 1600mhz,have you tested with 2x 8gb sticks and see if it runs at 1600mhz in the bios? could be a voltage issue with 32gb

    I don't really see what memory frequency it's using currently here, do I?
    Timings are a little off (no 9-9-9-24)...
