Hey guys, I previously had 2 x 1GB DDR2 800 Patriot memory:
Cas Latency 4
Timing: 4-4-4-12
Voltage 2.2V
With this memory my computer would idle around 800Mb using Vista Home Premium with most background programs in the background disabled.

I recently bought 2 x 2GB DDR2 800 Crucial Ballistix memory:
Cas Latency 4
Timing: 4-4-4-12
Voltage 2.0V
With this memory my computer has been idling around 1100Mb still using Vista Home Premium and with the same amount of programs running in the background.

Does anybody know why im using more memory now that ive added more than before when i had less?

Thanks guys

Vista uses x% of your total memory for functions like aero. The less memory you have, the more it uses HDD page file for these functions. The more you have, it relies less on PF.

Mine jumped about 400 MB going from 2 to 4 GB of RAM.

oh ok. that makes sense.
Now my question is my ran is suppose to run at 800mhz and 4-4-4-12
BUT
according to everest meter i'm running at 5-5-5-18 and 400mhz
Heres a screen shot of it:


is there anyway for me to change this so my ram can run at its fullest potential?

If gigabite, use ctrl + F1 then go to overclocking page.
