    Change your computer power options to 'High performance'. That will fix the issue.

    Well, you have to double the RAM values to get the actual speed it's running at. For instance if my ram was running at 800mhz id 800 * 2 =1600mhz

    What program are you using to monitor these values?

    Yup, your RAM is running at the correct speeds.

    Yes, remember DDR stands for double data rate.

  8. One Q though,why do you think you need 3400 or 3800 turbo speed to browse the net when I've been able to play sims 3 at 1600mhz with just playable frames?

    Hmm I know what u mean but the real thing is sometimes in games it remains and low 3400 I prefer it to go up to 3800 at high performance power the cpu usally goes to 3.99 ghz,. which is stable
