Windows 7: What's your memory assessment speed?

Thanks again Rick ... what the heck, I'll give it a go ... nothing ventured, nothing gained!

BTW, I searched for 'P1' and 'P2' in the BIOS settings and could not locate anything that resembled them.

Okay Rick, I've performed the minor operation and low and behold, by crikey, I think you're onto something.

Here are the results. I'm pretty sure I slotted the 3 x 2GB sticks into their correct home?

And BTW, my RAM WEI score has gone from 7.5 to 7.6 thanks to you.

You're a genius my friend!

Thanks mate.

Neil

Any tips on what I can do to up my memory bandwidth, WEI score etc.. ??

Thanks

Edit: I assume quicker memory would probably help, something to match the FSB the CPU can potentially kick out...

COOL! an xtra 2500mb/s! thats about the same increase you would get from going to 2T to 1T. so the blue slot did decrease a bit of performance for the sake of a bit more ram. but i think 6gb is a good amount. i had to go 8gb cos im running the core 2 setup dual channel, if i wanted 6gb it would be uneven (2x2gb+2x1gb) which i didnt want to do, but you can easily do that with the i7's allowing them to be more flexible. the i7's are by far the best cpu and mobo's out there, and they are already working on newer technology again (i think someone mentioned an i9?) once prices drop i will prob do an upgrade eventually.

and i would say you would have them in the correct slots as the only one you have to remove is that one in that evil blue slot

its a pleasure to help Neil! its always a good feeling when you have a win at the end of the day.

and if you want to increase it a bit more...try setting the tRAS to 20 and tRFC to 50 and see if that helps a bit more.
otherwise you could always over clock the FSB and that will always increase everything in the system, again making the ram faster. but i dont know how the i7's overclock (i know they get insane speeds) but the FSB are set up different from the pentium and core2 series so i would be lost there.
let me know if you try any other settings.

good luck mate.

Rick.

Can anyone tell me if mines right?

Four slots, 2GB in each.

slot #1: PC2-6400 (400 MHz).
slot #2: PC2-6400 (400 MHz).
slot #3: PC2-6400 (400 MHz). (originally 1066MHz but motherboard will only go up to goes up to 667MHz)
slot #4: PC2-6400 (400 MHz). (originally 1066MHz but motherboard will only go up to goes up to 667MHz)


Says over 6GB of memory cached, is that good or bad?

edit; my motherboard specs here, if I have 1066MHz ram will it run at a max of 667Mhz?

dont worry about what is cached and what not, windows will do what it needs to do.

as for your mobo, yes its max memory speed is 667mhz (333mhz affective) so no matter what speed ram you put in it it will reduce it to 667, just like a laptop. it also only supports sata1-150MB/s. maybe consider a mobo upgrade that is compatible with your cpu, but you will also need all the ram to be the same sticks to have full function and compatibility instead of having 2 of one type and 2 of another. that can cause overclocking issues if you get into that, also chances are that it will reduce the speed and timings to the lowest rated stick of ram, just like the WEI is rated, that way the system will not have issues. mixing parts can cause a lot of headaches if your not careful. other than that, because you have an amd system you have a descent score, but if you had a better mobo with the same ram in all slots (like the 1066 memory you have), you would probably do better.
