Is your ram running at 1600MHz? With your timings I would expect you to get better numbers than I do. I do have my BCLK running at 160MHz up from the stock 133MHz to run my 1600MHz ram at it's rated speed. This does overclock the CPU. A Guy

This is what CPU-Z is telling me. I have not done any serious overclocking or tweaking in a while so I am a bit rusty...go a bit gentle on me :P

I didn't do anything special. My ram is running at factory frequency, voltage, and timings. I installed it, set XMP profile and set the frequency. Brand of ram and chipset may contribute.

Main - Windows 7 Pro SP1 64-Bit; 2nd - Windows Server 2008 R2
 
 

In my case, it's DDR3 RAM @1600 in Triple-Channel.

Prof, where is your score? I haven't seen it.

That does say you are running at 1600MHz. What does the SPD tab show? Your specs don't say how much ram you have. You are indeed running 3 dimms, triple channel? I don't see Corsair on the QVL (Qualified Vendor List), so I can't get much info. Obviously it's working, and I suspect it isn't an issue. Perhaps when Dave76 or another hardware Guru comes by, they will have some ideas.

A Guy, I don't know as I have never had a board that runs tripple channel. But DDR3 1600 in tripple channel, shouldn't his CPUz say something like 534? 1600 in dual channel would say 800 but not in tripple wouldn't it?

No, the ram is DDR (Double data rate), so the MHz rating is for every dimm (800MHz, at double data rate = 1600MHz). A Guy

I realize the meaning of DDR, I was only concerned about dual channel vs. tripple channel.
