My System Specs


Yeah, it's running at 1066 by default.

Not a bad thing really... the reason it does that is to allow maximum compatibility for all memory sticks, otherwise you might not be able to boot your PC with your high(er) end memory.

Next step is to familiarize yourself with the bios settings on your motherboard for bumping the memory voltage (first), and then adjusting the memory timings/speed for performance.
