The Intel® GL40 Express Chipset supports both clock speeds but it may depend on the following:
- For DDR3 the speed will be 667 MHz when the Front Side Bus is running at 667 MHz. http://www.intel.com/Assets/PDF/datasheet/320122.pdf (page 20).
- Memory sticks with different or mismatching specifications will usually run at the lower speed supported.
- It is possible that the clock speed needs to be manually set up in BIOS (by using XMP) in order to run at the higher clock speed (if this option is available or supported).
I think it's the fault of the BIOS, but HP does not update this. It is impossible to configure the memory from the BIOS. Is there a program to change this once Windows starts?
Thanks and regards,
I am sorry, I do not know of any program that can serve this purpose and can be used regardless of the computer brand. It is known that some OEM computer’s BIOS are limited to just the basic settings.
