Hey all, I am confused about DDR3 RAM. Heres an example:
If DDR3 - 1600 Real Clock is 800 (taken from CPU-z), is that 800 x 2 to equal the effective clock of 1600, or 800 x 3 to reach some number no one could ever hope to calculate because its late? Thanks for any help!

the 1600 is not the clock speed, it is the transfer rate.
