Im currently running CPU-z, speedfan and core temp. Ive added a screenie of CPU-z.

enter image description here

Am i getting this wrong or is there a problem. BIOS says that it is set to run at 1333mhz at 9-9-9-24 @ 1.500v not 533.3mhz 8-8-8-20 as CPU-z says

Is this a laptop? Are you plugged into the wall and not running on battery? It seems to me there is a setting in the power management control panel to slow things down when running on battery. – wbeard52 Jun 17 '12 at 16:34
Can you please just post the screenshot of CPU-Z so we can read it clearly. – avirk Jun 17 '12 at 16:38
1333MT/s is your data rate. 533mhz is the bus clock... and it is the bus clock of 1066 Ram. It appears that your 1333 Ram has clocked itself down to 1066MT/s. As to why... that's another matter. We would need all the details of your system (make, model, motherboard, all Ram present, Processor, etc.) – Bon Gart Jun 17 '12 at 17:05
