    Speccy states RAM running at 1466MHz but bios states 2933MHz
    « on: February 20, 2018, 01:11:01 PM »
    Hi.

    I just ran Speccy and it's stating that my RAM is from an unknown manufacturer/model and is running at 1466MHz. The RAM is in fact some Corsair Dominator and bios states clocked at 2933MHz. Should I be concerned. The RAM cost me a lot so it'd be pretty annoying if it's not performing. I only ask because my system cost 1200 in total but sometimes it just doesn't feel as fast as it should be.

    Line in RAM summary from Speccy states: "16.0GB Dual-Channel Unknown @ 1466MHz (16-18-18-36)"

    Full log attached.

    Thanks!

    1466 is roughly half of 2933, so everything is fine.
    Speccy has always reported RAM as such, as it should, because don't forget what DDR stands for?  Double Data Rate.
    I'll let Google be your friend and how it works at the nitty-gritty level. :)

      Ah hah!

      Of course seems pretty logical. Thanks Mark
