Hey guys, I'm using the Kingston HyperX RAM. Model no: KHX8500D2/2G

It's a 2GB RAM module and I'm currently using a Motherboard with dual channel capability. I'm using Gigabyte's MA785GM-US2H for my motherboard.

I am planning to get another 2GB stick but as far as I'm aware of, this RAM module is running on 1066Mhz but when I start my computer, the checking systems part, it says that my RAM is 800 DDR2.

I don't quite get it, should it be displaying 1066 DDR2 instead?

What CPU is fitted?

Note 2 from the specifications:

"(Note 2) Whether 1066 MHz or above memory speed is supported depends on the CPU being used."

Hey, turns out I need to manually set the clock at 1066. My fren told me, the RAM is at "stock speed" of 800 so I need to adjust it manually at it worked lol. Thanks for the help anyways.
