ok, the specs on my motherboard from MSI say this here: MSI Global ? Mainboard - 790FX-GD70
ill attach an image.
the board says DDR3 800/1066/1333/1600*/1800*/2133* (OC)
DRAM, 16GB Max.
i'm using the program Speccy and it says my ram is PC3-12800j so it should be running at 1600mhz... but its running at 800mhz? even when ive got the power settings on high performance, instead of balanced, the green power settings of the motherboard are all turned off, it still says 800mhz. however, when i go into my BIOS it says both the Current DRAM frequency and the Adjusted DRAM frequency are 1600. but when i go in and look at the individual dimms and/or memory modules they separately say 800.
is my ram running at the proper speed? am i just confused about how it works? or do i need to change things to make it up to full speed? i know my ram is rated at a higher speed than my motherboard is, but the motherboard can do 1600 if its overclocked. at least thats what i gather from the msi website.
any input is appreciated.
