The better the cpu the better the ram performs??

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Well something i've noticed when looking at things like WEI scores are how if the cpu is one number the ram is usually .1 more. Before I oc'd anything my cpu was 7.4 and ram 7.5, then when i oc'd it became 7.5/7.7..However when looking at intel users with their 2500k's and i see their ram is also just 4 or 8gb ddr3 1600 cl9(sometimes) and they're scoring 7.9s. Does the cpu have a direct correlation to how well the ram performs?

well if you raise FSB, ram speed goes higher....

I'm not talking about the speeds, i see the same ddr3 1600 people running at 800mhz, and just because their cpu is better their ram score is also higher. Like people that just use the multiplier to OC their SB cpu's, it shouldn't boost the ram too should it?

So i'm going to take a stab at this after recently learning something. Is the result of the ram performance boost when overclocked high with a 2500k the result because the IMC is integrated on to the cpu?

Double data rate, 800Mhz in windows is 1600Mhz total clock speed.

I would imagine they are probably tweaking the sub timings on the ram. Or running tighter timings on their ram then you are. To actually get a little more out of it. But honestly that windows score is worthless in the real world.

The difference between your AMD setup, and the Sandy Bridge setups is the memory controller. SB has a MUCH better memory controller.

Overclock your NB on your 965 (and give it more CPU-NB voltage as needed), and you'll see nice improvements too. Not just memory either, NB is the best thing to overclock on your chip.
