What's my RAM speed?

Hey guys.

 

My memory is G.Skill Sniper 2133Mhz. As I have in my signature. 

 

But I was looking around in CPU-Z and in the memory tabs. I don't think my System is running at that speed, even though in the BIOS it's set to DDR3 2133 with XMP profile 1.3 loaded.

 

Am I doing something wrong or it supposed to be like this?

 

Screenies here and here (Slot 1 and slot 3 both read the same and they're the slots I'm using)

 

 

Thanks in advance guys.

It's all good. DDR3 memory is DDR for a reason. Double Data Rate. The speed you see is 1/2 reality.

Times that number by 3, and thats your speed. DDR3 means Double Data Rate 3, so it's taking that clock multiplied by 3.

So that would mean my speed is 1066 doubled, 2132? That sounds much better

That'd mean my RAM is running at 3198Mhz?
