    If you can, show us a screen shot of CPU-Z and so forth... Because if its DRAM Freq. then your all right.

    shame on you cold storm :)
    cpuz is showing the "real clock". It's like saying a 3GHz P4 is running @ 200MHz cause that's the FSB. However, you multiply 200 by 15 to get 3GHz... same thing with DDR. You multiply 333 to get 666 (it's actually 666 but they call it 667 to avoid problems :rolleyes:)

    DDR stands for Double Data Rate, which would mean that you take the speed being shown in CPU-Z which is the Single Data Rate and double it.

    I was waiting on the screen shot to really tell him what... lol.. Plus, if I told him everything, it would be about 15 lines long, with me losing myself in it... Not to mention everyone else that would read it.. Damn me!

    You sound like me, want to go simple but end up typing a whole press release kind of response.

    I think we should join forces in creating a special tranquilizer system for our fingers, or something to that effect so they stop before our brains do.
