Hey all, in desperate need of some help here!

I got my new ram twoday, 2gb of ddr2, and i heard that this ballistix stuff is good, so i was exited.

I installed it no problems, booted fine, all going okay, untill i check CPU-Z, this ram should run at 667mhz, its currently at 202mhz...what the hell?

Ive checked the BIOS, i have made sure its on DDRII 667, and it still doesnt work (sometimes it doesnt even show up any frequency in CPU-Z..)

Is there any explanation? Anything I am missing?

Im a noob, so please help me out!!

Disable it and try using Everest or another program to read your RAM speed.

That memory compatibility option basically just cuts the speed of the ram to about 3/4 of what it should be.

See my post in the DUAL-VSTA thread. It seems that its set up right. It seems to be working nicely. Keep in mind that that 352 is doubled to 704 as it's DDR ram ;)
