You might have better luck over in the Windows on Mac forum. You could try posting the question and seeing if we can answer before the Mods notice :p

Sure you can. Of course, you won't necessarily get the best answers here because most of the collective expertise is Mac bias, but give it a go! Good luck! :)

I noticed. Go right ahead... it's not against forum rules and there are a lot of PC-using and building people here. I'll leave it here in Mac Basics and Help. :)

Ok so I upgraded my Dell Dimension 9150 to 4Gb RAM PC5300 667Mhz
It is running dual channel but seems to be only running at 333Mhz
Can someone help me out? Is this normal? Can I get it to run at 667??
Cheers. I assume its the same for a Mac system... :confused:

I assume the multiplier needs to be changed from within the bios, or maybe thats just something you have to do with a cpu?? Been forever since I messed with bios multipliers.

^^ yes, just to follow up on this, did a quick search:

"Your RAM uses DDR (double data rate) technology. DDR667 RAM actually runs at 333MHz, not 667MHz, but the speed is "effectively" doubled."

333MHz with DDR2 RAM is equal to 667MHz.
