    You will have to go into the bios to manually set the timings and speed of the memory to get the 2133mhz speed. As of now it is using the default memory settings of 1333mhz. Once you get the timings and speed set Windows will report a speed of 1066mhz. (1066x2=2133) The best part is you already know your timings. 11-11-11-27

    or if it has XMP profiles on the memory.. make sure that is enabled in the bios.. that will bring the memory to its default speeds of 2133MHz.. Which will show as 1066Mhz in CPUz, if it doesn't then do what Cyber mentioned above and should do the trick.

    Since it is an AMD system it may be listed as AMP instead of XMP. Either way it would by under the OC tab in the UEFI bios.

    When you say "Windows says", what exactly do you mean? What program or part of Windows are you referring to for that reading?

    Windows Task Mgr always defaults to 667Mhz. but it doesn't mean that its running at those speeds.. Using CPUZ to check is the most accurate way... or using benchmark apps like MaxxMem or AIDA

    if you're getting 1066 in CPU-Z then it's good. 1066 x 2 = 2133 (dual channel memory)
