my ddr3 1600mhz ram shows up in bios as 1600mhz but now windows task manager and cpu-z show it at 800mhz I also used the command wmic memorychip get speed
and it said both sticks where only showing data rate of 800mhz where as it was showing all this information correctly
I also understand the whole double data rate thing however this information was correct before and on all of my other builds the information is displayed correctly.
I have noticed quite a performance drop in my memory intensive applications

I will attempt to reinstall the drivers
Another issue surfacing is that often times it will not go into bios atall but will go into windows just fine so I am forced to clear the cmos
