Windows 7: What's your memory assessment speed?

If the "Memory" tab in CPU-z shows 533MHz, then that's what you RAM is running at... The "SPD" tab shows the compatible speeds according to your RAM, while the "Memory" tab shows the current settings. Besides that, according to Gigabyte's website, your P35-DS3L supports DDR2-1066 (link).

That could be for a number of reasons; have you tried increasing the voltage supplied to your CPU or RAM? Overclocking makes a component work harder by increasing it's clock cycle rate, therefore drawing more power than normal.

Although, seeing a review I just found now (I was waiting for the page to load while I was typing this), it appears your motherboard doesn't like overclocking that much anyway... Have a look here. Specifically regarding the point that they increased the CPU voltage to 1.5v and well.. Melted the plug. Lol... That must suck.

Zalith, I am pretty paranoid about harming what I have already got, and yeah next go around I will get a much better chipset'd motherboard, at the time and budget, the one I got was well received, I spend hours and hours reading reviews on newegg and/or other reviews. I generally prefer to stay at stocked speeds, pushing the limit only requires one bad move to screw it up.

I had bad luck there too though kind of, I have 1.0 revision, 2.0 came out a week after I got mine, it probably didn't matter much but... I looked at that article, ouch, very non-overclocking mobo, damn them for the overclocking tease though in BIOS, I mean it's pretty slick settings wise, but useless in practice, what was Gigabyte thinking?

I was just looking at hardware to see what all would be a good upgrade, I need a job!

Nextgen h/w is on the way later this year or early next, as usual... and I am forced to wait so no problem.

Are you sure it's not the otherway around on the CPU-Z tabs? Memory one is showing max bandwidth at 400 (PC2-6400, that is the box that is confusing me!), reason I ask, looking at other scores, mine looks bad for what I have, someone else had their DDR2-800 scoring over 8000 to my 6700ish when I am not running browser or other apps.

And yeah I had bought 1066 ram because Gigabyte said mobo supports it, though G-Skill's site doesn't list this one as qualified which confused me further.

I could probably get higher but I'm already scoring 7.5 in memory and I don't want to differentiate from SPD timings.

Firestrider, you got everything set just right, I'm sure it's running plenty fast for you.

Nice rig and nice scores

Taking a closer look at the screenshots you posted, if you look at the 'SPD' tab again, above the 533MHz settings is shows "EPP #1", while the 266MHz and 400MHz settings show "JEDEC #1" and "JEDEC #2".

The term "JEDEC" itself doesn't really mean anything to what your RAM does, but the "EPP" does. That stands for "Enhanced Performance Profile". If your motherboard supports EPP RAM, then you should have no problem running it at 533MHz (1066MHz effective speed)... If not, then perhaps that's where the problem is coming from?

Another option would be to see if Gigabyte have a later BIOS update available for your board. Hope that helps a bit...

Edit: Oh, and by the way, I get around 8600MB/s with my Corsair DDR2 PC6400 running at 880MHz...

Great score.

How many GB RAM do you have?

I got 4 gig of ram in this system. I did also post my old score in this thread somewhere so going to look for it now and compare it.

here we go.

so tripled my ram speed, very nice.

so i put my pc to sleep when i go to work and bed everyday unless downloading something. before i hit the sleep button the ram usage is 21% and gets 18,695gb/s. then i put it to sleep and got to work and get home and wake it up and it runs ram at 14% load and pulls 21,400mb/s. i figure it runs so much faster because of the lack of usage after wake up. here is the before and after. what do you think?

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 ?
