Direct X11 is all you get with Windows 7. Direct X 11.1 is not availably for Windows 7 to the best of my knowledge.
Now lets see how Windows 7 is seeing and using your ram. Using Resource Monitor give us a picture like this for your computer.

I think you can see I'm doing this step at a time. If you get stuck on a step just post back. No hurry it's nap time. Love my medication.

Cysis is old and required DX9, maybe that`s why you get an error when playing with DX11, just a thought.

It`a shame you only have 64 GB of memory.

What about this:

"Some computers have a powerful graphics card and a weak integrated graphics chip, and some PC games do not auto-run on the card. Try right-clicking the EXE file and selecting "Run with graphics processor..." and then selecting your graphics card. This happens to me a lot".

I don't know if this will help but its worth giving it a shot
I can't find this option anywhere??

Well Windows seem to see all your ram. Your reserved for hardware is a bit high but I wouldn't worry about it because you have a lot of hard ware. Here is a little built in Windows 7 test you can do. This will tell you how Windows 7 judges your system.
Press the Windows 7 key and the pause key on your keyboard. Then in the lower left of that screen tick on Performance and Information Tools. Then tick on
Advanced Tools. Tick on the top line.
Clear all Windows experience index and re rate this system.
Let it complete and post a picture of the results.
Here is the best way to post a picture on this Forum.

Don't mess with your ram setting at this time.

A few things could cause that score to show. What controller are you using (curious, because your specs identify it as a SCSI device)? What drivers for that controller are you using...Microsoft or OEM? Is the drive aligned properly?

Download AS SSD and see the snip. The DL link is on the top right. Some SSDs will gain performance after several hours/days of initial start up. My M4 scored a 7.5 at first.

sequential writes are only 200mb/s when i should get 550mb/s im also concerned why i cant overclock my ram to stock setting or overclocing my cpu one bit without BLOD but one setpo at a time i guess.
using a sata 3 port im getting 370mb and 400mb, still not 550mb i need sata 6gb right?

Sequential read/write isn't too consequential for the OS. The 4K numbers are and yours look pretty good although the read is a bit slow. Also access times are important and yours look good. Yes you want the SSD on a SATA III port. Did you have only the SSD installed when you installed w7?

how have you tried to set your RAM and what are its specs: volts, frequency, timings?
