Max Memory Clock is Much Higher than Current Memory Clock... How can I reach my Max Memory Clock??

Ahoy there!

I have a DELL Inspiron 15R SE 7520 and a HP Envy DV6-7214NR. Both have 800MHz memory modules (both in 1600MHz dual channel, according to the task manager).

The problem is, HWiNFO says that both my laptops have a maximum memory clock of 1300MHz, but that the current memory clocks are actually 800MHz.

As far as I know the maximum supported frequency for the memory modules in these laptops is 800MHz, resulting in 1600MHz in dual channel.

So my doubt is... is HWiNFO saying that I could overclock my memory modules up to 1300MHz? Or that I could try to install 1300MHz memories modules to push for 2600MHz in dual channel?

Many regards!memclock1.pngmemclock2.png

Maximum Memory Clock shown by HWiNFO is the capability of the Memory Controller. The real supported clock can depend on other factors like system design, BIOS.
