    Default Memory Specs off

    I have 4 gigs of this RAM, Newegg.com - Patriot Extreme Performance 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory.

    The specs on Newegg are,

    DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500)
    5-5-5-15
    2.3V.

    And their website, Patriot Memory - Products.

    DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500)
    5-5-5-15
    2.1 - 2.3V.



    I have CPU-Z installed, and I am getting the following specs...

    PC2-6400 (400 MHz).
    And only the EPP #1 matches the 5-5-5-15, 2.1V, 533mhz.
    The other JEDEC #1,#2,#3, are all less or different, but have 1.7V.

    Should I be changing something? Is everything the way it should be?

    That is the programmed JEDEC Standards so they will start and function properly on most all boards. All 1066 ram looks like that, as you can see you do have the correct EPP of 533Mhz (1066) on the far right

    To see what speed you are actually using you need to look in the Memory tab. I mentioned this here just a day or so ago with a posted image explaining which is what. This post is for a user with the same questions and I showed which is which using CPU-z and Easytune for Gigabyte boards, but you will see where you need to look) >>>

    Yeap, that looks to be 800Mhz. You need to adjust your memory multiplier in the BIOS then is all

    If you are running 333 FSB then you just need to set your memory multi to 3.20B. If you are running something else let me know. You are on an Intel system right?

    I unlinked my FSB's in BIOS and raised it to 1066.

    According to CPUZ this is true.

    Now, those numbers below aren't equal to 5-5-5-15 like they should be... should i manually set these?

    I'm on a 780i and an E6700. So yeah, intel.
