I have a pentium 4 3.06ghz ocd to 3.2ghz

when i have 1gb of ram (2x 512mb) it runs at 210mhz
however when i run 2gb (2x512 and 1gb) it runs at 175mhz,

Just wondering if this is normal, and whether the decreased speed will outwiegh the advantage of having 2gb of ram.

Thanks in advance

Patrick

It sounds like the memory is rated for a 333 and your bios is set to use SPD. I would like to see some CPUZ screen shots of the memory, SPD, and cpu tabs.
