I just installed new RAM, upgrading from 8GB in 4 2GB sticks to 16GB in 4 4GB sticks. I don't know anything about how RAM speed works but I'm pretty sure that 535MHz is slower than it should be. Can someone please advise me how to handle this?

What speed is the ram specs

Go into your BIOS and enable XMP.

>>51529180
On the packaging I see it says DDR3-1600 so I assume 1600 from that.
>>
>>51529122
DDR = DOUBLE DATA RATE

get educated.
>>
>>51529203
this

>>51529223
for DDR3-1600 he should show at 800 in speccy which means OP didn't enable the profile in the BIOS
>>
>>51529208
It could be 1066 and be mislabeld
>>
>>51529246
>>51529203
Ok I will try that.
>>
>>51529122
Perhaps your motherboard isn't compatible with DDR3-1600, so it's underclocking it?

So I went to the BIOS and went to the AI tweaker but there was no XMP option. I enabled something called DOCP and the speed is higher now but I don't know if this is where it should be.
>>
>>51529423
No, that's where it should be.
