    Alright, well, yesterday, after running at stock speeds, i decided that i wanted to overclock a little, for the first time :) so, my CPU is at 4.6 gigahertz (mult=46, bclock=100, Voltage=1.350), BUT according to CPU-Z my RAM is hitting a solid 1066??? it is 2133 Gskill, and when i was running the CPU at stock speeds, with the XMP profile in the bios set to profile 1, i was hitting the advertised 2133??? any idea what the issue is?

    Oh, and i tried to manually set the RAM speed/ voltage/ timings, but it was not stable? (i just used the advertised settings off newegg) and in the bios, the RAM registers at 2133???

    DDR stands for double data rate - ie - 1066 doubled = 2133mhz...

    That means its running fine
