DFI BIOS makes it easy to fake memory results

Just in case some readers here don't have their ear as tightly
pressed to the ground as others, I will summarize and let you know what has
happened that can make it very easy to fake memory overclocks...and I don't
want any of our friends here buying bad memory because of this. again, if
you are reading reviews, buying memory in forums, or on e-bay and using
overclocking results as a guideline then read on as this may very well save
you some hassle.

What with memtest? Would it report the memspeed correctly?

There is no claim from any manufacturer on this type of performance to begin with.

if you're buying memory from ebay/forums with the aim for overclocking you should not pay more than retail price in my humble opinion
