What's your memory assessment speed? [2]

Note   Note


I decided to open a thread to show what people are getting with there current memory settings, what improvements are shown with various timing tweaks, speed settings ect.

to access this you MUST have UAC turned off, OR choose 'Run as administrator'. open the command prompt window first, either by opening 'Run' from the start menu and typing 'cmd' --this will only work if UAC is deactivated--, or go to accessories in your start menu locate 'Command Prompt' right click, select 'Run as administrator'.

once opened simply type:
winsat mem

Note: it will not matter what the command path is set to.

i am currently facing issues with my DDR3 and being stuck at around 8500mb/s any suggestions why feel free. Dual channel and tri channel play a huge factor in this benchmark, so keep that in mind before comparing with others

so here is my winsat score:
Name:  Screen01.JPG
Views: 529
Size:  44.3 KB

with the current timings:

post em up and let other people know what basic timings and MHz your set at (DDR2 950MHz 4/4/4/12 ect) and channel configuration (dual/tri channel) your using.


thanks to smarteyeball for pointing out the admin trick with cmd.exe!

Rick.

I also don't know of any program that will read ram temps. I use a Infrared Thermometer to read temps.

That's a pretty nice score.
there is no way to read RAM temps with software, motherboard don't have a sensor for it. I wouldn't even worry about RAM temp, it rarely overheats.

I do use a ram cooler but I don't really know that I need it.

In my experience RAM coolers aren't needed but may make cooler air available to your CPU cooler just by having more air circulation.

I have done some reading and most think they are not needed unless some exteme RAM over volting and overclocking is being tried. Many believe even then they serve no real benefit.

I have 16GB 2133MHz RAM and I have run Prim95 and Intel Burn Test on max simultaneously and the RAM was barely warm, in fact no more than at idle.

It is more important to provide adequate cooling for the CPU and GPU.

If you make the top Noctua fans both intake it will do better RAM cooling and overall cooling for you I think.

I have read the good, bad and I don't know about ram cooling. I'm still in the I don't know group. I do know it can't hurt to cool them a little more. I already have added 6 Noctua fans to my case along with keep the two OEM fans. NA I probably don't need ram cooling but it's got pretty lights.

Well, I'm in the school of I don't think they are necessary or needed, but they sure do look cool.

Thanks, and yeah... I hear ya. I'm not too worried about boot speeds though, and have a good amount of RAM for SuperFetch caching and whatnot.

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 ?
