Hey all. I think i finally got my memory to run at 1066 mhz. I am just wondering if the dram frequency in the memory tab in cpu-z is before ddr. So my frequency says 533mhz. Does this mean i am at 1066mhz ddr?

Awesome man thank you. This forum is great. BTW my system specs are in my profile. My 3dmark06 score was around 12000. Is that normal ?

yes thats about normal. Be aware that 3dmark 06 is pretty much a CPU testing program, its pretty much useless.

prime 95 is 100% a CPU program. Its only single threaded too, so it doesnt show any benefits on CPU's with more than one core. (which is handier than it sounds, 3dmark 06 gives quad cores a huge boost in score over dual cores, when a higher clocked dual core could be faster)

I'm not too keen on synthetic tests, i prefer just game tests. Try 3dmark vantage.

Ok cool. Thanks mussels. you guys have all been a great help. I am still a newbie considering i just built my first PC. I'm so glad i went with the phenom II 720BE though. It blows the pants off my other rig which is a locked Athlon 64 x2 5000+
