First, why don't you clicl my system specs in the lower left corner of your post and edit specs. List all hardware so we can know how best to help. But I suspect that the 2, 2GB sticks are hurting your scores.

ok thanks, have updated my basic specs. I'm running a shuttle SH55J2, with intel i3-530.

I can try taking out the 2x2Gb sticks and running winsat again.

The 2 ram gurus are A Guy and Dave76. They will be here soon. But you can run mixed pairs with some difficulty, but it is always best to run matched sets.

My board is also running 3 X 2GB in triple-channel but also has a funky 4th slot if I want to drop down to dual-channel. No 5th and 6th slot for me at all. Then I had an old MSI board with what were apparently color-coded RAM slots. Good thing I read the manual because it turned out that the colors had no relation to the actual channel configuration at all.

So the colors are meaning less OMG i should shift my ram over to a odd color slot then err.... why do they do this then turn around and abandened the idea meaning my MSI board to classify

I took out the 2x2gb set and re-ran winsat.

Strangely the speed only went up to 7400 MB/s (from 7350 MB/s), so it doesn't seem to be that.

This is why I hate threads like this. After reading through hundreds of posts it seems my number is low for my system. What do I do? Something else to obsess about .

Look at CPUz and you will probably find that you are in single channel mode.

Because that's why there are 2 colors of dimm slots. You have 2 controllers on your CPU. 1 color dimm for each controller. You have to put 2 dimms in the same color to be in dual channel.

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 ?
