My System Specs

Default GA-P35-DS3L + Crucial PC2-8500, Running at 6400


So i got my rig all build last night, and i hadn't had a chance to start playing with it until today.

And when i checked the ram, its running at 6400 and not 8500, I tried playing with the BIOS a little bit, but my knowledge of BIOS settings isn't the greatest.

I couldn't get it to run at 8500 after changing the Voltage.

Could anybody advise? I figured i would ask for help before messing it up.
This is my signature! Roar

Well set the multi of the ram up and try messing with voltages. I put voltages on auto and it seems to work. You could also overclock that CPU.
