i never really looked before but i just noticed that my 4GB ram frequency is only running at 928mhz

it is advertised as 10666 memory isnt it=

https://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=MY-092-OC

im very confused :headexplode:

my fsb is at 369 so my CPU is at 3.34ghz instead of 2.4, CPU PLL voltage is at 1.5

I admin i find my P5E3 x38 AI Tweaker in the bios a little too complex

so any help would be appreciated

Well, the speed of your RAM is directly proportional to your FSB speed and you can set the FSB:Ram ratio in your bios manually(you can also choose to run your RAM in interleaved mode and then manually set the frequency to 1333Mhz).

Which program are you using for checking the ramspeed btw; with most programs you have to multiply the reported frequency by two(hence the "double" in DDR)? :)


eva2000 is the one to ask about ram speed though!

Well, then change the speed from your bios?

not sure how to unlink the FSB either on the asus P5E3 x38

I might be wrong, but isn't the link/unlinked option an Nvidia chipset option only? I have the p5E and I have no such option, but here's a couple screens with my speeds, yours should look similar.

See the 533 MHz on the second grab. That's X2 for 1066.
