hello. i've recently bought a Dell Vostro 1700 which supposedly had 3GB 667mhz RAM. To check this I downloaded CPUID WIZARD. It reported back with this:-

Manufacturer : Samsung
Part Number : M4 70T5663QZ3-CE6
Serial Number : 82413DCC
Type : DDR2-SDRAM PC2-5300 (333 MHz) - [DDR2-666]
Format : SO-DIMM (67.6 x 3)
Size : 2048 MB (2 ranks, 8 banks)
Module Buffered : No
Module Registered : No
Module SLi Ready (EPP) : No
Width : 64-bit
Error Correction Capability : No
Max. Burst Length : 8
Refresh : Reduced (.5x)7.8 µs, Self Refresh
Voltage : SSTL 1.8v
Prefetch Buffer : 4-bit
Manufacture : Week 12 of 2008
Supported Frequencies : 200 MHz, 266 MHz, 333 MHz
CAS Latency (tCL) : 3 clocks @200 MHz, 4 clocks @266 MHz, 5 clocks @333 MHz
RAS to CAS (tRCD) : 3 clocks @200 MHz, 4 clocks @266 MHz, 5 clocks @333 MHz
RAS Precharge (tRP) : 3 clocks @200 MHz, 4 clocks @266 MHz, 5 clocks @333 MHz
Cycle Time (tRAS) : 9 clocks @200 MHz, 12 clocks @266 MHz, 15 clocks @333 MHz
Min TRC : 12 clocks @200 MHz, 16 clocks @266 MHz, 20 clocks @333 MHz


Now it appears to me they've shortchanged me. The RAM looks to be the slower 333mhz. am i correct?

Do another check, but this time using the scan at click here though it does look as if you are 1Gb short!

PC2-5300 is 667MHz on DDR2 (2 clocks per cycle) however you said the machine is supposed to have 3Gb and CPUID reports 2Gb

no, i do have 3GB (I just posted the first slot), i'm asking if the RAM speed is 667mhz as they advertised.

thanks for replying anyway.
