My question is about the speed of the memory modules on the motherboard.

I am running Win XP SP3 with an Intel Core2 Duo CPU @2.4 Ghz

The Kingston DDR2 memory modules were advertised as 800 Mhz (PC2/6400).

I confirmed with both ASUS (P5B Deluxe motherboard mfr) and Kingston

that the specific part numbers were compatible.

There is 1 GB module in each primary slot (A1 & B1)

and 512 MB module in each secondary slot (A2 & B2), for a total of 3 GB.

The memory speed shown on both Speccy (from Piriform software) and

from System Information for Windows (www.gtopala.com) show the

actual memory speed as 667Mhz.

Is there a setting in BIOS or some other tweak so that the memory

performs at it's rated speed ?

Thank you for your help.
