So I’ve been building Custom PC’s and what not since I was 15 (32 now) but one thing I never really learned about for some reason is RAM timings. Well I was just reading this article and it mentioned that your RAM actually only runs at half of the advertised clock speed. Thus DDR4 3000 will only run at 1500. I never heard this before. At least not that I can recall. Why does it run at half the speed they advertise it as? Why don’t they just say they actual speed ? Or is it saying that 3000Mhz would be the maximum clock speed the module is capable of, but overclocking would be required to reach it. So it just runs at 1500Mhz at stock settings ?
