Recently I got a new pc.
I went for a P8Z77-V Deluxe, Intel i7-3770k, Corsair CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9 and 2x evga 670 FTW's.
When I ran a 3dmark11 test I noticed my score was about 2.5 - 3k below average.
I also saw my ram was running @ 667 Mhz.
Since my mobo and ram should both support 1600 Mhz I was a bit surprised.
I checked the bios settings and changed the ram settings to XMP.
Cpu-z is showing dram frequency of 800 Mhz and spd max bandwidth of 667 Mhz.
3dmark11 is still showing it @ 667 Mhz.
Is this normal?
And what about the below average result with 3dmark?
Any help would be appreciated!
