Windows 7: What's your memory assessment speed? [2]

Bill, in CPUz the SPD tabs should give you the timings for different frequencies. Those are the tested frequencies and voltage. I think your problem may be that when you switched ram, the timings and voltage were still set in BIOS for your old ram, so your computer was trying to run the new ram at the old ram settings. You will find that 2T is a little more stable than 1T, but 1T gets slightly better performance, not that you would notice it. If the ram will not run right at the SPD settings, I would run memtest on it. None of the timings or frequencies will make much difference to your daily use. You won't notice very much difference. But, if you run benchmarks, there will be a difference. But, unless the motherboard is not compatible with the ram, the ram should run right if you use the timings, frequency and voltage listed in the JEDC values oh the SPD tab in CPUz. Hopefully, I answered your questions, most of them anyway.

Thanks Steve, yes, I realized it was my old timings. I knew what the timings were from CPU-Z. The other question I have is:

Is setting the DRAM voltage manually to 1.5v correct for this ram?

Thanks for the 1T 2T answer, and the timing playing answers. I doubt I will run Memtest unless I have any issues, as I say, I don't stress this PC. Just wanted the best/correct original settings, then I'll leave it be

Bill, the voltage should be on the SPD settings for which frequency you are using. But, I would suspect that 1.5V would be the correct voltage.

Mine sure doesn't look very promising
I sure can't tell if it's bad or not the system is pretty damn fast to me but 8gb crucial :/
But of course this processor sucks

OK, thanks. It's 1.5v for all speeds

My system has never been able to run the Windows Experience and give me a rating for all my components. The last time I ran it, which was just a couple of minutes ago, it gave me an error and said it can't test my memory. I built this system a few months ago, and I've never had any problems with it. Does anyone have any suggestions how I can fix this? First time I ever tried running it, I got an error when it came time to run the Windows Aero assessment, but I found a fix for that issue.

You can try this. Windows Experience Index - Reset

Also, open an elevated command prompt (Run as Administrator) and type winsat formal. That is what WEI is measured by.

You also need to have an internet connection to run the wei, and have all programs closed.

Memory Assessment Speed
Just a curious question; I ran winsat mem a couple of weeks ago and got a 13600+ read. Ran it today and got 15985 read. Only system change was adding a Radeon 6670 Video card. Does memory speed change this much ? What might cause the disparity ?
