          Nice pc you got there. Although your 8800GTX might bottleneck the power of your Core i7.

              do you think I will?? This card is still a pretty good contender with the recent models.

                Here is a link that Bamboo posted showing you how to get the rated speed from your ram but Maybe with your ram you may need to OC the CPU also?

                http://www.maximumpc.com/article/fea...nally_reported

                The article may be misleading at first but read it all and it will give you an understanding of what to do.

                    Also remember that what you are seeing is your actual RAM clock speed and not your effective RAM clock speed (which should be 533 x 3 since you're using DDR3 in tri-channel).

                      umm... DDR3 is still double data rate not triple data rate so it is clock speed times 2 still (533x2 = 1066). The 3 in DDR3 means generation 3.

                      More than likely your RAM defaults to those speeds to ensure that it can boot, all you have to do is go into the BIOS and go from 533 to 800. Make sure the voltage is also set at 1.65v, its not recommended to go higher than that with i7 CPUs.

                        Re: i7 Build complete

                        Last night I got it up to 844mhz showin on CPUID...so if it is twice that then I'm assumin I am now at 1700mhz. Would any of you know why in CPU-Z t won't me me select the drop down box to view individual cores??

                        Oh and it NB frequency is like 3200mhz...is that high or no?? I'm no sure what a safe range for that is

                          Is that a stock CPU cooler? If so I would like to hear how it cools with prime 95.
