Windows 7: got new Ram... not sure if its running at full speed...

Hmm. Have you tried putting a new set of RAM? Maybe the RAM is faulty as its speed is not 800 MHz with 9-9-9-24 Timings according to CPU-Z memory tab.

Usually, a fully functioning dual channel DDR3-1333 with 9-9-9-24 scores 16000 to 18000 MB/s in WinSAT.

If there is physically something wrong with the RAM, you can find out by running a few passes with Memtest86+. I have seen sticks of RAM not be bad enough to blue screen or fail, but bad enough to run quirky. It's worth a try.

my system would not let me go as low as 41, so i set it to 107 and this is what i got now... my mem assessment speed jumped up to 10389.17MB/s so i think i may try to go lower on the trfc and see...

It has nothing to do with working right or not. You wouldn't be able to notice a difference is the memory was running at a lower speed or not. You would have to run very specific benchmark tests to even show a difference. Too many people get hung up on timings and speeds for memory, without ever bothering to realize it doesn't really make a real difference. As long as all of your memory is being reported (and used), and you aren't having any issues, spend your time enjoying your computer for the purposes you have it for.
