Hi, I recently bought a Crucial Ballistix 16GB 3200Mhz RAM and I want to check if it's fake.
I checked in cpu-z, task manager, and cmd. in Task manager it's 3200Mhz, in cmd it's 2667, and in cpu-z it's 1600 (Dual Channel).
so which one of them is wrong?

P.S. For some reason MSI Afterburner Says my memory speed is 7000Mhz
anyone know why?

CPUz is showing correct readings.
1600mhz means 3200mhz,since DDR means Double (2x1600mhz=3200mhz) data rate memory.
Basically go in bios,and see what ram speed you have your ram set to.That is the most correct reading you will get.
Thank you!
then why does the cmd says 2667?

Everything is ok. I've memory 16Gb 3600MHz. By some deafult things, it set up to 2666MHz. In bios I set up to 3600MHz. Cpu Z shows me dram 1800MHz (2x1800=3600MHz).
That 7000MHz what you saw is gpu ram.
