Are you overclocking right now?

If it's rated at 400Mhz, then it's double pumped and an effective rate of 800Mhz. It's probably at 333 because of the Front Side Bus Ratios (MEM RATIO LINK)]

EDIT: looking closer at your ratio - I see it's 3:5

I did overclock but I reset the CMOS so everything should be set to stock.

Open up CPU-Z and find the Front Side Bus and the Rated Front Side Bus.

This will allow me to calculate a Ratio to set your RAM at.

Where does CPU-Z tell you that?

first page: CPU
It will read "bus speed" and "rated front side bus"
