CPU-Z miss identifying memoryspeed.

Recommended Posts

does CPU-Z always miss identify memory speed? it says all three of my rigs have 1333 and only one does.

Nope, never seen it miss once.

 

Post screen shot of Memory and SPD tabs so we can tell you whats going on.

Keep in mind that if you have a Sandy Bridge based build, you'll have to manually set your RAM to be higher than 1333 (presuming your RAM supports it).

well it gets the speed that its running at correct but not what speed the memory actually is. i have 1866 in my main rig its a fx6100 and 1333 in my backup it's a phenom ii x4 840, and 1066 in my laptop it's a i3 370m. but cpu-z says they all have 1333 installed. im at my moms house recovering from hernia surgery so i cant post my desktops but as soon as i figure out how to post my laptops nukmbers ill do it.

Just remember that cpuz only shows the memory actual speed. Being memory is DDR Or double data rate CPU ID will only show the reference clock that it is operating or actual men speed. Double the number for the ram clock that cpuz gives you and you will get the speed its operating.

see it's running at 1066 pc3 8500 which is what it is but under the speed tab it identifies it as 10700.

What does the BIOS say about the RAM speed?

Open cpu-z, click on memory tab, open cpu-z again and click on spd tab, then use the sniping tool to take a screen shot and save it. Attach to post.

the bios is super basic. the info screen shows the memory size but not the speed. nothing is adjustable. i have the latest version. cpu-z showed the same thing with both versions. my fx6100 desktop rig has 1866 memory. cpu-z shows the correct speed no matter what i set it for but it identifies the memory as 1333. it has the latest bios too. i've never paid attention to what the bios says that memory is.

My memory is listed as 1333 for two sticks and 1600 for the other two...but the XMP profile works just fine. :P

Here is what your problem is

 

Memory Standard: DDR3 1866(O.C.)/1600(O.C.)/1333/1066

 

You have to change the settings to get it to 1600. If you say your BIOS will not support it, then try updating the BIOS to see if it gives you extra functionality. You can also try downloading some of the ASUS utilities to try to overclock your ram to 1600 mhz.
