G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9Q-16GBRL
It works fine (computer boots), when I run Speccy however I get the following as the recognized memory:
16 GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 795Mhz (11-11-11-28).
At first I thought this was running at half the speed it should be. Then I read some postings about doubling the actual speed to get the effective Mhz as rated. I was further confused when I read on newegg that the stated RAMs timings are 9-9-9-24-2N, as you can see from the Speccy posting it appears to be running at 11-11-11-28.
Is my Ram running at 1600Mhz? Is my timing less than optimal? I don't want to leave allot of speed on the table, if it is a simple matter of adjusting settings in the bios (all my current timing settings are set to auto, I checked before installing the RAM). I'm not interested in overclocking the memory, I just want to get the rated amount, and my motherboard claims to support 1600Mhz+.
Any feedback would be appreciated. Rest of the overview specs are as follows:
MS Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1
Intel Core i7 920 @ 2.67GHz 72 °C

16.0 GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 795MHz (11-11-11-28)
