According to Everest, my DDR2-800 Muskin 4Gb Ram is running at 400MHz... Is this normal?
And According to CPU-Z, the Ram actual speed is also at 400MHz

Are there anything wrong with my system? according to the stats below?

I believe it is normal. The DDR2-667 ram sticks can only run speeds up to 333MHz.

Yes everything is fine, that 400 becomes doubled because it is DDR, double data rate.

If you have a problem with something posted in a thread use the report post button, other wise your just trolling.

And tonight I am in no mood for trolls.

FYI - "WTF" doesn't always have to be taken literally as its acronym- It can be used to show a form of confusion, which the OP was experiencing.

He was never over emotional in his thread, merely asking "Is this normal", "Is something wrong" "anything I can do to improve it?" Perfectly logical and rational responses to a confusing question. Manufacturer's don't come right out and explain it, and with a dozen sets of numbers associated with ram, it can be difficult to decipher. He even took the time to get stats in case anything was wrong. Its not like he came out and said - "Mushkin tricked me, my 800 ram is only 400mhz!!! OMG WTF BBQ!!!"

This isn't the Hard forums lets not be complete asshats, there are places for that

well not trying to defend anyone or argue. But shouldn't the asker google it first before panicking and typing WTF in the title?
