Windows 7: Q6600 Stress Test

15 May 2011   #11

Windows 10 Pro. EFI boot partition, full EFI boot

Well I think it is low too and the only thing I can think of is you have two different kind of RAM sticks in there even though you have the like-kind paired correctly.

Windows 8.1 - 64 Bit

I bought those around same time from same buyer, now I'm thinking of getting 2 sticks of 2/4 GB instead of running 4 sticks of 1GB

2X2 GB would really be the better route IMO.
Because that way they all match and 2 DIMMS is less stress on the NB as well.
It makes it a bit easier to get more stable OCs.

Although many seem to have no issues mixing and matching RAM, it can cause issues. Especially when OCing.

Thats why I suggested just targeting a 1066 speed, and go from there.

Do not try to aim for the highest speed rating of what you have. Rather, take the weakest of the bunch, and make that your goal.

Also pay attention to voltages and timings. They all say 1.5V however, so that will make it a bit easier.
