How to Ready an SSD to Re-Install an Operating System
I will be into this Guide soon as, Ted thanks for that I have a new chip 965 AMD and will add an SSD and hope to level out around the 7.4 without any overclocking the 7.9 is great but to expensive for me at this time.Good to see them coming through good work guys.

Hello Mattz!

I would only do Step Three and Step Four in the tutorial with a new SSD, You have no need to do a "clean all" as there will be no data to remove to start with, the reason to do those steps is so you don't get the 100MB boot partition and the Windows.old file during install. Remember to post back with the new WEI scores.

Thanks man drives me crazy I cant seem to get 7.9 in Memory
In Resource Monitor, are you getting a lot of Hard Faults/per second?

I've got 6g of ddr3 1333mhz and I've tried out those timings that you sugested, they got rejected, couldn't boot.... There's something strange though, I can't change the cmmand rate, that option is not available.

@oidicle: You really need good quality ram, I said that to thobel because he has those corsair 1600mhz sticks which are generally very good and can run much tighter timings. Maybe check the transcend forums and see how far people there are pushing your particular modules.

I did a quick run at 7-7-7-19 1T and it didnt go well I'll do alittle testing later tonight

I'm tempted to go buy the Corsair ddr3 2000's and run it at 1600-1800 with tighter timings

@thobal: The 2000c7 kit is rated for 7-8-7-20-cr2 but runs fine on my board 7-7-7-19-cr1. Just needs a bit of vqpi. They're expensive though probably the c8 kit is just as good and will save you some money.

Stepping away from synthetic benchmarks there is likely little (if any) difference between 7.8 and 7.9 in real world usage.

take it easy guys

i know it hurts not to get the WEI score you were hoping for, but replacing 6gb ram from x brand with another 6gb from y brand just because it’s got a bit higher bus speed won’t really boost the performance...in other words… that split of a second is really not worth the money...unless you are sick

Might be barking up the wrong tree here...

Badly written software that runs in the background as services or processes can cause hard faults, which can contribute to poor CPU and memory performance. Hard faults occur when a program tries to access memory outside of it's allocated memory space. The OS has to recover from hard faults, which slows everything down. To get to the resource monitor, start task manager, click the performance tab, then click the Resource Monitor button. In resource monitor, click the Memory tab to view Hard faults per second.

After installing Crysis, my memory WEI rating went down to 7.8 too. With resource monitor I was getting lots of memory hard faults. So I started systematically uninstalling some of the extras that got installed when I installed Crysis. I found that once I got rid of Game Spy, my memory WEI score went back up to 7.9 and I was getting nil for hard faults again.

Another thing that can affect performance is single bit ECC. When you overclock your CPU, GPU, system memory or GPU memory, you may be inadvertantly increasing the frequency of correctable single bit errors. And if you are running your memory at anything greater than 1066 MHz, you are overclocking your memory. The act of correcting these errors may serve to counter the benefits of overclocking. You may end up slowing down your system instead of speeding it up. There are registers in your chipset that keep track of the number of errors corrected, but there is no standard for where these registers are. They are different for each chipset. Some BIOS's allow access to these registers.

Even if you are using non-ECC memory, the Windows kernel has built-in single-bit errror correction (since Windows 2000 anyway). Single bit error correction is completely invisible to the user, but if it happens too often the act of correcting the errors will adversely affect performance.

Sorry if all this is all common knowledge, but I've found that it pays to look at any software issues before you start tweaking hardware.

Mine:

I guess my HD is bottleneck, still not a horrid score, but don't really see it as that much of an issue, probably related to mediocre motherboard.

My PC is custom and I built it 2-3 years ago, with just video card upgrade since.
I don't overclock, this motherboard will BSOD at bootup if I try any of it's built in overclocking settings, very bizarre, don't care though, runs everything I use well.
