Hello,
I have tested performance of my laptop(dell n5010) mermory(ram) using two different softwares (piriform speccy and CPU-z).
the result is:

the bios is updated to r15, but the bios shows that the frequency of ram is (533*2=1066 hz ) while the rated frequency of the ram is 1333?
why my laptop doesn't work at the maximum frequency(1333)?
is it recommended to manipulate the bios to achieve rated frequency of the ram? or it is an OVER DESIGN to use less than maximum frequency of the ram?


thanks
best regards

It will not really speed-up your laptop and might cause overheating. I suggest you stay with the current settings.

Good Luck

Hi AmirHejazi,

I researched on the issue and found the below mentioned note about this issue:

"JEDEC specification for DDR3 is 1066 MHz. As 1066 MHz is the official specification, many memory modules will default to that speed."

Check this thread for more details.

Please check with the manufacturer of the memory module for more details.

Hi AmirHejazi,

The Inspiron N5010 / 15R system supports dual-channel DDR3 SDRAM with memory speeds of 1333 MHz. Basically, when both DIMM connectors are populated, the system has optimum dual-channel performance unless channels A and B have different amounts of memory. Were the Memory Modules (RAM) replaced (upgraded/downgraded) in your Inspiron N5010? If yes, what Memory Modules (RAM) are installed in the machine currently? What is the size in GB and Frequency?

Overclocking the Memory (RAM) is not recommended.

Just one DIMM connector is populated. and a new ram is replaced with the old one! and it is installed in DIMM A.
and as you can see the specifications of the RAM in the below link:(softwar results)

it is a 2GB RAM from Hyundai Electronics and its rate frequency is 1333 Mhz
