Your x58 board and RAM should be in the +20k range.

Might want to check the settings or run memtest86+.

Good advice, however the RAM was free. This is a Dell (not my choice). At the time my sister ordered it, they screwed up and filled it with 12 gigs of ram. Unfortunately, it's their usual Elpida PC3-8500(F) @ 533mhz... As it's impossible to adjust timings with the Dell bios/mobo, I guess I'll have to settle for the score as is.

Attached is the screenshot of the timings. Could slow cheap ram be the reason my x58/950 is only showing ~15,000MB/s on the ram test?

I highly doubt it.. I bought the cheapest memory sold at the store (kingston) and it wasnt any overclocking memory, still 400mhz ddr2 running at 450mhz with no problem.

Comparing to other users results mine are double the bandwidth, am I doing something wrong with the test or comparing wrong results?

Tweek, thanks for posting this. Cheers!

As for my ram situation - as there's nothing to adjust with a Dell BIOS and proprietary motherboard, I'm at a loss to figure out what I could do.. Suggestions anyone?

Thanks again.

New higher quality RAM should raise the performance but, only a little since you can't adjust any settings with OEM BIOS.
I would just leave it as is, the performance is what it is designed to be.

Good suggestion. My sister is happy with the performance and actually only scratches the surface of the capabilities of the i7-950 coupled with 12 gigs of ram, and that's what matters.
