A little boost is better than nothing, I would think that it should be higher though.

The CPUZ SPD tab shows the settings tested by the manufacturer at the JEDEC standard. This is for information.
Default may be at any of the JEDEC #'s listed or the XMP, depending on the BIOS settings.

Your current RAM settings are in the memory tab.
All voltages listed for RAM in CPUZ are manufacturers recommended, not actual.

Very interesting read, thanks.. I'm hoping to move from the Athlon world to the Phenom II world sometime very soon, if I hadn't known about this I could've wasted some very precious money without even realising it...

Your Welcome, much better to get the 1333MHz RAM and spend the money saved on other componets.

My RAM looks a bit depressing!!! I have 4Gb of DDR2. These are what CPU-Z and the winsat mem came up with:

Does anyone have any idea how to improve it???

Music Guy123 that's actually a very good score for DDR2 memory!

Really, is DDR2 not as good as DDR3 and other ones??? I didn't think that 400mhz was that good or 8000mb/s. How do i know if it is running at its full potential, can RAM be underclocked or something similar to what they do with processors???

DDR3 is the newest technology and is considerably faster.

In the screen shot you posted it shows your memory as PC2-6400 which is 800mhz speed.
The reason it shows as 400 in the same shot is memory has 2 banks so its double what it shows on CPU-Z

In my previous setup I had DDR2 800mhz memory and mine scored around 6000 in winsat, so like I say yours is very good for DDR2.

Hope this puts your mind at ease.

Paul.

It seems the average DDR2-800 (PC6400) score is between 5000 and 7000MB/s, anything higher than 7500MB/s can be considered a more-than-decent speed.. If you want something in the 5-digit range (10000+), you'll need something like the DDR2-1066 (PC8500) in dual channel.

Keep in mind that although it's nice to have nice high scores for the memory access speed, your PC will still be restricted in certain ways by other hardware (HDD, CPU, etc). For motherboards that only take DDR2, because of the other hardware you'll probably never really benefit from DDR3-class speeds anyway...


Anyways, in case anybody's interested, the Phenom II x3 740 BE that I bought doesn't like my motherboard, so I made a plan with a friend of mine to upgrade his PC and allow me to take his old CPU. So I still got a slight upgrade (5400+ to 6000+), but I can't clock this 6000+ at 200MHz core like my old proc... So my memory assessment speed is down from about 8600/8700MB/s to about 8300MB/s now.

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 ?
