There are different types of DDR2 RAM. 800mhz DDR2 is the highest "mainstream" speed. The only time you would need 800mhz RAM is if you were overclocking.

Even if they are DDR2 800Mhz, they run at 667Mhz?

No if they are supossed to be 800mhz they should run at that speed. If you have one stick of 667mhz RAM and one stick on 800mhz RAM they will both run at 667mhz. Is this helpful?

Go ahead and close this topic. I tested 2 sets of RAM and the 5-5-5-15 at 800mhz ran slower than the 4-4-4-12s at 667. My MOBO sets the faster HyperX's at the 667 speed. Which is correct. :whistling:
