In your BIOS you should have a setting that will allow you to manually clock your ram. You might have to enable the option if it is off. That is where you can adjust the frequency of the ram to 1333.

Go to computer shop where you bought a computer and ask them to fix that.
It's much safer that way...
I can guide you, but I can't see what you are doing and I don't want to be responsible if something goes wrong.

Your RAM IS showing the correct MHz. You are the victim of marketing. The default MHz is 1066. The RAM is capable of running, overclocked, at 1333. I am not looking at the specs, but I will wager that 1333 is not in your RAM's SPD.

Your local computer shop, even if they are willing to OC your system for you, will charge you more money than it is worth, IMO. As a shop owner, I would not OC your system - I would not accept the liability.

If you are still in the first 30 days, I would demand a swap out on the RAM for RAM that includes 1333 in the SPD - RAM that defaults to 1333. This depends, of course, on whether or not the company that sold you the system claimed the RAM would run out of the box at 1333.

Besides, it is not that big of a hinderance. In real world experience, you are not likely to notice a difference.

I am just as angry at Kingston and Asus for marketing 1066 RAM to me that actually runs at 800. I have to double my FSB from 266 to 533 to get 1066.

Antman, as usual, you are right.
