    Probably a stupid question but need assistance. Just upgraded bios on my Gigabyte GA68A-D3H-B3 motherboard to UEFI version u1b, from F12. I upgraded the memory's voltage to 1.65 volts as is required for my memory. I set the memory frequency manually to 1600, which is its standard frequency. When looking at final memory settings on CPUZ, it says my memory frequency is 800 mhz. Is my frequency set incorrectly in bios, or am I just supposed to double what I see on CPUZ and assume I have the correct frequency at 1600 mhz? The memory, by the way, is Patriot DDR3 1600. Sorry if this sounds like a stupid question, but I am unsure about CPUZ software. Thanks for reading and responding.

    DDR = Double Data Rate, so 800Mhz real rate doubled is 1600Mhz effective rate. It's correct and that's what CPU-Z normally shows.
