Windows 7: What's your memory assessment speed?

It depends on your North Bridge (NB) memory controller and the RAM sticks.

When you mix brands they will usually go to the recommended settings of the lower spec sticks.
Did you manually set the timings and voltages?

For your system, the Corsair are running at recommended settings and the Kingston are OC'ed.
This is likely the reason for the 7037 Mb/s, which isn't bad for DDR2.

Not quite sure what I should be at, but I'm not running dual or triple channel.

It's probably only able to run in Dual channel, same as mine, but you should get double that score.

Give us some info on your RAM, brand, timings and voltage settings, number of cards, etc.
Post CPUZ memory and SPD tabs.

Maybe some settings need adjusted.

Depending on your motherboard specs, your DDR3 should be either Dual or Triple channel.
If you have the RAM cards in the same channel slots than it will be single channel.

Check your motherboard manual for the correct slot configuration.

Edit:

Just noticed your attachment, where does it tell you that it's not Dual or Triple channel?

Here's some info on it. I have a Dell XPS 430 though so I don't know if there is a lot I can do.

I just haven't set it up for it. I've had too many random issues trying to get this build to run right, and after I get that sorted I will make it run fast .

Your DDR3 is in Dual channel and you have 4x2GB RAM cards, with Dell BIOS there's nothing you can change.

If you have 2 RAM cards you can change the slots, if they're not in the right slots it's possible to be in single channel mode.

You've got the standard Dell RAM, same as my Dell, as long as its running good your fine.

Yeah I'm not too worried about it. Everything seems to run fast enough for me. I've just been curious as to why its slower since its DDR3.

What speeds does the ram in your Dell run at?
