    Hello all, its been 2 months since I build my new machine off a Q9550 and a p5q mobo and am concerned about the ram settings.

    I have http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231166

    G.SKILL F2-8500CL5D-4GBPK

    [​IMG]

    It seems to be running at pc6400, when i clearly purchased pc8400.

    I have done a mild O.C. to the cpu, and have in the bios to set to 1066 but cupz still shows it running at low mhz.

    Any help would be appricated.

    533mhz is correct b/c ddr2 is x2 so 533x2=1066

    ram devider is 3/4 so 400(your fsb) \ .75 (3/4 ram devider)=533 x2(ddr2) = 1066

    PC8500 RAM is PC6400 RAM, it is just guaranteed to run @ 1066mhz. So you have no problems.
