My System Specs

Memory Speed - DDR3 - 1333 (667MHZ)
Memory Timing - 9-9-9-24 @ 666MHZ

My motherboard is Asus P6X58D-E with Intel i7- 950 CPU.
According to the bios , if my CPU is locked, the maximum memory supported is DDR3-800 or DDR31066

Does this mean that the installed memory will give me problems because of a mismatch of speed ?

I ran CPUID and it shows that my memory is running at 534MHZ with a timing of 8-8-8-20

Again this is different from the advertised timing of the Corsair. Should I be concerned ?

Thanks for your comments.

Memory Speed
The 534 that CPUIP shows is half the actual value, so your ram is at ~1066, the timing should not change on its own from stock, did you read that off the tab that says memory, or the 1 thats called SPD?
