Windows 7: Only 100 megahertz???

Ok, I need you to put the CPU under load so I can see what the clock speed is.....you don't have to validate it, just use Windows 7 snipping tool and post it here.

Go here Fossil Free Online CPU Load or Stress Test. and click on 100% and THEN run cpu-z. I'll post mine here to give you an idea of what I need.

That's what I needed to see, good job. It looks like the people who sold you the PC have already Overclocked it to 4.0GHz. I will re-post your pic and show you what some of the numbers mean.

Cool... when I saw that option that's what I was thinking it meant which is why I got that.

So, would there be any benefit to increasing the memory speed?

I heard there is pre-configured RAM that can do this just by installing it.

On CPU-Z, click on the Memory Tab and take a snippet and post it here.........This is the stuff I need to see...

I'd stick with that RAM, although I would try changing your Command Rate(CR) to 1T in the BIOS.

OK, so does that increase the memory speed?

And, what about those RAM sticks that are pre-set to fast memory speeds?
I've heard with those you don't have to mess with BIOS at all.

Any validity to that? Like this kit from Corsair
Amazon.com: Corsair 32GB (4 x 8GB) Vengeance 1866mHz PC3 15000 240-pin DDR3 SDRAM Quad Channel Kit 32 CMZ32GX3M4X1866C10: Computers & Accessories

I have that same kit, only in 16GB and the BIOS initially recognizes it as 1333MHz and you have to set it to 1866MHz manually. Your RAM is MORE than enough, I'd just set the CR to 1T. You won't see any difference, except in benchmarking, going faster than the RAM you currently have. You have a great mix of capacity/frequency and unless you are doing crazy video/picture rendering, you will never need more RAM, or a higher frequency RAM.

Just curious, are you running an SSD in that system?

C'mon man... for once in my life I can write this off my taxes as this is for business use!

I've heard other say they didn't have to do anything in the BIOS, that their machine increased on it's own to 1866MHz

I'm probably going to get that 32gig kit anyway, unless you guys think it'll slow something down.

No, I have the latest Western Digital 10,000 RPM drive where the little thingy never touches the disc... it's very quiet.

OK, so how do I do that... and if I went ahead and got the 32 gig kit, does this adjustment stay the same?
