    I just finished building a new server for work - 2.8GHz, 800FSB, 1MB Cache, 1GB PC3200 DDR400 Corsair RAM.

    Problem is that in BIOS it says the the RAM is DDR333. This is auto detected and I can force the setting to DDR400 but I didn't want to do it seeing as how that would be somewhat of an overclock.

    Anyone experience this before? I'm certain that the RAM is labelled DDR400 and that the motherboard supports an 800MHz FSB.

    If I keep the setting at DDR333 am I really losing that much performance? This is an upgrade from a 400MHz machine with 128MB of ram - yow!

    double check the voltage settings that the ram can handle and what it is set at... ive heard of similar problems when the ram was set at 2.5 and it was rated for 2.6. Double check that for starters. But if it is the regular cheaper corsair then it isnt all that uncommon... i was going ot get that but read some bad reviews how it wasnt stable at full speed.
