Windows 7: DDR3 RAM not showing correct speed

DDR3 RAM not showing correct speed

So I have 6GB of DDR3 RAM in my computer, and when I go into my BIOS, it says that they are operating at 1066 frequency, when they are 1333 sticks. I'm not sure how to solve this issue, but I think I know how it came about. I had a 2GB 1066 stick in there and for some reason when I took it out, the speed stuck in the BIOS.... any ideas how to correct this? I have tried: Flashing the BIOS. I think I might try to clear the CMOS THEN flash the BIOS, and hope that that works.

On the Memory tab it will show the current memory settings and the SPD tab will show what the auto settings are. The auto settings may not be 1333 but you can then change the values in the Bios to get what you want.

Hey Jim,

Thanks, that's a nifty little tool! It says that my memory is running at 1333, but on my BIOS it says only 1066... ::scrathces head:: That's a neat little tool, got anything that will tell me temperatures? lol

Hi Konstantinov

Have a look at CoreTemp

This should get you started

Reset the CMOS on the board, and then reload optimized defaults in the BIOS.

OR go into the BIOS and change your "memory multiplier" until it's running at stock speed. That's what I do on every system I build. That's how you get RAM to spec speed.
