I just was going through CPU-z and it shows my memory running at 800 MHz  Shocked
I went into my bios and bios states
DRAM Frequency   [ddr3-1600]

I also enabled XMP as well (Extreme memory Profile) when I was in the bios and still no change on CPU-z

is CPU-z wrong?

800mhz is correct Syber, remember it's DDR double data rate so it's 2 x 800 = 1600Mhz.

However your timings are a little loose. look at the RAS CAS on my old banger.

Thanks Data I did not think of that lol

My timing is stock timing, and running error free atm.
I never really messed with timing and OCing memory.
However I could OC or UC them, but I rather not.

Are you telling me your RAM is CAS 10?

You sure about that, normally the cheap stuff is 10

Ok fair enough, there does seem to be a lot of heatsinks on that RAM of yours for CAS 10, I bet there is a lot more in them babies. 

My Gigabyte mobo has some nice tools in the BIOS to help you get the most out of the RAM while keeping the stability. 

Yeah I'm a Gigabyte fan boy, simply love the BIOS for clocking.   Grin

Found 3 different speeds for the Corsair Blue memory.
10,10,10,27
9,9,9,24
8,9,8,24

The black and red seem to have the same range of timings too. Not sure what the difference is.

indeed there probably is room in these modules, but atm I don't think I need the room  scratch-head
besides huge renders, everything on my pc runs butter smooth, and I guess I have a little bit of future proofing if I decide to have this rig for a few years.
if I find it running slow in the future, I can either add 16 gb more ram or OC the ram I have now.

MSI has some nice tools as well, though I'm not a fan boy of any mobo maker. To be honest I usually find a few boards to fit my needs then choose the best looking one out of the bunch  innocent

I don't know either, fact is I don't know much about how ram operates, One of the biggest reasons why I have never OC'ed ram before.

To my understanding, the numbers are how many cycles or MHz the RAM has to wait before it's ready to be re written to, empty out it's data and be ready to send out new data, you could say that it's the RAMs lag. a lower number is less laggy.

Not that I think your PC is laggy Syber, but you know what I mean.

Thanks Data for the knowledge and no worries I know what you mean Cheesy
Though I do know my pc has room for improvement, for instance I can OC the ram, I can also OC the cpu, I could also buy more ram, and I could buy another ssd and put it in a raid configuration.  but at this time I see no need for Trinity's specs to be improve.

Though Nvidia did come out with a 700 series gpu  scratch-head um no way Syber forget it lol Cheesy
