    Hello, I just recently purchased 1-512mb module of HyperX pc4000. I used three programs (cpu-z, pc-wizzard, and sisoft sandra) to check my RAM, and all of them read it as pc3200.

    Now, I'm assuming that they show up like this because my motherboard only supports up to ddr400- which is pc3200 (I think...). My motherboard is a p4p800 deluxe. I got this motherboard and memory because I'm overclocking my cpu which is currently a 2.53 533 chip, but I have a 2.8c M0 on order..

    My main concern right now is that BestBuy sold me pc3200 in a pc4000 box, but I haven't found any program that will recognise the memory as pc4000. Other people have gotten the same programs to register correct memory speeds greater than pc4000, like crosair pc4200..

    Anyone know of some way I can check for sure which module I bought?

    Thanks in advance,

    Have you physically looked at the memory? Normally there's some writing on them indicating what they are.

    The system will only recognize it as PC4000 when u start overclocking.
