Does any one have any suggestions or an md5 that I can use to verify that my file is downloading properly?


Pretty sure you've got to rename it to ST990R20

Also this is my winsat result at 2400 speed memory.... whats going on?, i have to be doing something wrong

Enable bank interleaving. Both are under northbridge settings in BIOS. If its not that, IDK. Thats what I did to go from 16000 to almost 22000. ALSO, try re-running it a few times. I noticed major differences between 2 or 3 runs in a row.

Latency, I believe. 2400 CL13 could only be as good as a 1600 CL9 IMO

Also note, it could be some timings as well..

Like I said, refer to your sticks' spec. My hyperx genesis for example has up to 110ns minimum per spec..

And I can run it all day with latencies lower than 160ns could produce. On a negative note, my sticks has pretty standard timings. 1866 9-11-9-27..

Edit:
this is what I can get:

Ran Twice just because maybe once is whack..

Mega would be correct. I have my machine under water and even when it was on air the VCORES were smoking 70C+ I would suggest anything over a 8350 have cooling on the VRMS From my experience and i have owned every chip from 8350 on up. Yes they can handle the heat but why shorten the life of the motherboard.

This is personally the one I use. Newegg does not have them right now but they are available on ebay.
