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.
