Default Memory / Memtest86+ Question

I have an Asus A8V Deluxe motherboard in which I just stuck 2GB of PC3200 DDR. I noticed when I did a memtest86+ that it reports the RAM running at 157MHz (DDR314) / CAS: 2.5-3-3-7 Dual Channel (128 bits). A quick google for RAM for this system turned up DDR333 RAM. Is the downclock because the RAM is wrong, or is this just an incorrect report by Memtest86+?



Lots of vintage machines.

I had the same problem when testing RAM on an old Pentium 4 rig I found.

What does CPUZ report? If it's correct then ignore the reading in Memtest.

Lenovo ThinkPad T410 - i7 620M - 8GB RAM - Crucial M4 120GB SSD - 250GB 2nd drive - Intel HD 3000 GPU - 1440x900 - Windows 7/8

Check the memory speed in the BIOS. If it shows it's running at 157MHz, you should be able to set it correctly to 200MHz.
