i just bought a new system unit.

Phenom 9950 2.6G
mobo Asus M3A78 PRO
3 G ram 1066
psu gigabyte odim pro 800W
graphic card will buy in future.

my problem is my RAM just running in 800Mhz. how to solve it.
i have c at other forum they oso have this problem v phenom AMD.
they say the AMD is most stable running in 800MHz so it will set it default to 800Mhz.

If i wan to change it to 1066Mhz How can i do that?? will it become unstable??

thank for helping me :D

Mine did the same thing. You have to manually set the memory clock to x5.33 in the bios. Don't leave it on auto, it will default to DDR2-800. Will not be unstable.

I would recommend to set the CPU multi to 15x also. This processor easily goes to 3.0Ghz. Try it, and see if yours does ok.

Hmmm...not sure. I have an aftermarket. Did the memory work for you?

in my BIOS, there is a setting that allows you to chose memory speeds such as: DDR2 800 and up to DDR2 1066. look around in chipset features. hard to guide you though since i dont know your mobo's BIOS. best read your manuel like wisecracker suggested m8

IN the BIOS i have change the ram to 1066Mhz but it is no stable. volt i change to 2.1V is tested by corsair.

the ram should be 5-5-5-18-2T but after change to 1066Mhz is 5-7-7-24-31-2Ti cannot change it to 5-5-5-18-2T and it no stable....

currently use back 800Mhz.... someone help pls...

BTW i have update the BIOS to the New version 0402 asus BIOS.


this is the default
 
I'm not familiar with the Asus 780g BIOS, but if you are running 3Gb of RAM, please verify that the sticks are similar model with the same timings.

Also look in your motherboard manual as to the proper method to populate the DIMM slots for your memory configuration.

And you may want to 'test' a 2Gb configuration as required by the chart in your manual.
