That is a very low score for DDR3, I'd expect it to be way higher than that (at least 3 times higher). The 'SPD' tab in Cpu-z only shows the different speeds that your RAM is capable of running at.. What does it show under the 'Memory' tab?

It's also a good idea to fill in your system specs. The speed of any component in a computer is related to all other components that it works with, so that will allow people to help you out more easily.
I agree with ZaLiTH, and the brand of the ram may also be a factor.

i just discovered that the reason for the low score can be due to my processor. I might be wrong.
I7 640m processor, 2.8Ghz.
It supports upto 1066Mhz and not 1333Mhz. Hence the low score.
Please correct me if i am wrong.

Moving from single channel to dual (totally forgot about this thread) effectively doubled my rating.

Just out of curiosity.... Do you have a laptop of a desktop?

I did a search for "M471B5673FH0-CH9" as shown in your 'Spd' tab from Cpu-z, which led me to the spec sheet on Samsung's website and there it lists that model under "DDR3 > SODIMM > M471B5673FH0". SODIMM (or SO-DIMM if you want to be technical) are smaller sized RAM modules designed to fit in laptops.

Honestly, I can't really try explain the "why" or "how" of it because I'm not too familiar with laptops... But for some reason, laptop RAM does tend to perform slower than desktop RAM of the same speeds.

Edit: This is why I suggested you fill in your system specifications in your user control panel, there are many components inside any and every computer, all of them affect each other in more ways than you can imagine.

Ah.. I see. Well, as I mentioned, I don't really have very much experience/knowledge regarding laptop hardware so I can't really comment.. But from what I understand, laptop hardware (specifically RAM) doesn't perform quite the same as desktop hardware of the same speed ratings. Maybe someone else could explain it a bit better..
