Well I just upgraded my Ram from 1GB to 2GB and now when I boot it says I have DDR333 instead of DDR400. Its in dual channle so thats all good but why is it saying DDR333 when all my Ram is DDR400? Specs are in Sig. But every thing is going even faster now. Linux boots faster, use to take 1 min to boot into Suse but now only takes 30 seconds, even thing opens faster the whole computer is going faster. Just wish it would be DDR400.
Revenge was here.

Would you happen to have a 1GB stick and two 512MB sticks? Sticks of different sizes, speeds, timings, or anything else tend not to get along when put into the same system. Are the brands or sizes of the sticks different?
I have 4 sticks of 512MB of Ram. Its all Corsair XMS DDR400 timing and every thing is the same.

when you have all the slots full it always runs at a slower speed.
Why does it run at slower speeds?

Cuz your mobo doesn't like you. :p I dunno why it runs slower...I mean, I'm gonna have to buy two 1GB DiMMs when the time comes, because right now I have two 512's. It was really stupid of me to buy what I did, knowing that I would eventually upgrade...
I didn't make it!
AgentlaidlawWhy does it run at slower speeds?
its what your processors memory controler runs it at. mine are PC3500, but is run at PC3400.

Read up on the motherboard manual and dual channel specs. Placement, type of RAM, size of sticks etc are all things to check..
I had to flash my BIOS when I added 1gb, totaling 2gb.

Yeah thats what my book was telling me when I was reading it. Oh well. Its still faster than before and I still have my dual channle so its all good. Have more ram free and my computer is going faster.

with some motherboards, if you have more than two sticks of ram installed at anyone time the ram speed goes down to DDR333 no matter what they were before
