Are my timings/cpu bus speed correct?

  1. I've built a computer for the first time and I'm not sure about a few things.. First of all my memory frequency is only clocked at 266.7mhz. Isn't that really low considering I have dual DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) sticks? Also is my timing good on it or should I modify it in anyway? Thanks for the help!

    Dram Speeds are lower than normal
    When computer starts open the bios page and set up Your DRAM/FSB Ratio to 1:3(or set it to automatic);
    Hope i helped.

    You have to go in the µGuru section of your motherboard's BIOS & play with the settings there.

    The settings you'll need to play with are "MEM" & "FSB:Memory Ratio". In the "Estimated DDR2 Data Rate", you should have 800.0 as a result.
