New Ram only running at 200mhz

  dave726587 10:29 12 Jul 2008

ok i just bought this click here

i already had 2 512mb sticks that both ran at 400mhz but since i only have 2 ram slots i took 1 out and put this new 1 in that even says 400mhz in the title. So i put the ram in and it all works good but then i looked at the ram speed with cpuz and the new ram has made both sticks run at 200mhz

why has this happend? is there a way i can set them to run at 400mhz?

Please help im really upset about this

Bought a stick of RAM,but was given the wrong speed.Like you it changed the speed of the original RAM.

From a thread I posted on this Forum,was informed you cannot mix different speeds.If you fit a single piece of RAM with a lower speed,it will slow the down the other RAM installed if fitted.

Was told to return and exchange it for what I paid for.

CPUZ reports it as 200 as its DDR. This means that it is running at 400mhz.
Mine shows the same.
