Can anyone make sense of this?
 
Why does my memory speed in CPU-Z differ from what nTune and the BIOS tell me?

At 2800MHz CPU-z shows 2800/14 = 200Mhz, yet nTune shows 424Mhz.

It does not make sense to me becuase my BIOS is set to a memory speed of 333Mhz. Stock speed on my CPU is 2200, so 2200/14 = 157x2 = 314MHz, not the 333MHz the BIOS reports.

So according to CPU-z even the BIOS is incorrect.

Can anyone make sense of this?

that is probably because your motherboard is forcing a divider on the memory.

I'm not sure what you mean. I have a divider manually set, its set to 333 in the BIOS as opposed to 400.

open up CPUZ and tell me what it says under the Memory tab under FSB: DRAM

Well it says the same thing I said in my first post, CPU/14.

Do you see where my confusion is? What the divider calculates to and what is reported by nTune/BIOS is not the same.
