    Just assembled new system. I've installed a single stick of Crucial Ballistix 2GB DDR3 PC3-12800 -1600MHz. I noticed in the BIOS it was only running at 667mhz so increased the ratio so that it would run at 800 mhz which with the double data rate is its stock speed. However in CPU -Z under SPD it states that I have installed a module of ' maximum memory bandwidth PC3-10700H (667 mhz)' However under the 'memory' tab it states that the DRAM frequency is 803.6 mhz which appears to be OK. Again in SPD it shows the correct manufacturers part number.

    So I run PC-Wizard-again the same result-shows the type of memory I am running is slower than it actually is! Whats happening here?
    Gigabyte MA785GT-UD3H motherboard
    AMD Phenom ll 550BE 3.1Ghz (not O/C)
    Windows XP sp3
    Crucial BL25664BN1608 2GB DDR3 PC-12800
