I have bought the following system with the following specs.
CPU Arch : 1 CPU - 4 Cores - 4 Threads CPU PSN : Intel Core i7 CPU 860 @ 2.80GHz CPU EXT : MMX, SSE (1, 2, 3, 3S, 4.1, 4.2), EM64T, VT-x CPUID : 6.E.5 / Extended : 6.1E CPU Cache : L1 : 4 x 32 / 4 x 32 KB - L2 : 4 x 256 KB CPU Cache : L3 : 8192 KB Core : Lynnfield (45 nm) / Stepping : B1 Freq : 3050.35 MHz (145.25 * 21) MB Brand : Biostar MB Model : TPower I55 NB : Intel DMI Host Bridge rev 11 SB : Intel P55 rev 05 GPU Type : Radeon HD 5870 GPU Clocks : Core 157 MHz / RAM 300 MHz DirectX Version : 11.0 RAM : 4096 MB DDR3 Dual Channel RAM Speed : 726.3 MHz (2:10) @ 9-9-9-24 Slot 1 : 2048MB (10700) Slot 1 Manufacturer : Noname Slot 2 : 2048MB (10700) Slot 2 Manufacturer : Noname
For some reason, it says that the frequenty must be 1600 MHz, the CPU-Z validator says it's RAM Speed is:
726.3 MHz (2:10) @ 9-9-9-24
What does this mean?
I have this ram at the moment, 4096MB DDR3/1600 takeMS CL9 KIT
In my opinion it must perform on 1600 MHz instead of 726.3 MHz isn't it?
Capacity 4096 MB Type DDRIII Frequenty 1600 MHz
What i didn't knew before I bought the mainboard was that there is a list of supported RAM. The ram brand I use isn't in the list.
My question, the system works, but does the ram works on full performance or should I buy an other RAM brand to have the full functionality?
An other note, I have windows 7 32 bits installed, it shouldn't support more then 4 GB, this is what the properties of system information says:
Installed memory 4 GB (2,99 GB available)
In my opinion this is also strange, because I don't have shared memory because I have a standalone GFX card.
Any help or input would be great on this subject.
