RAM WEI score went from 7.9 to 5.7?? What gives?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
So I have 2GBx2 Gskill Ripjaw RAM running at 1600mhz at 7-8-7 timings and 1.68 DRAM voltage.. I was really impressed at first (ive had it installed with these settings for probably 4months or so, but now out of the blue the WEI score has dropped dramatically from 7.9 to 5.7!!! Now I know its really not a reliable benchmark in itself, but something seems wrong here.. Aside from that not sure if its related, but my sound will stop working randomly and I'll have to reset the computer to get it back... I'm getting ready to run memtest right now. Also my transfer speed from my spinpoint F1 to my 1.5TB samsung story station external is only around 20-50 MB/s which seems really low to me.. so I guess Im concerned it could be a possible MB issue? Any insight would be great as Im getting worried...

WEI doesnt matter, that "benchmark" is pure garbage.

honestly you should be seeing transfer speeds double that though... i suggest getting a PCI/PCIe sata card if its higher then its mostlikely a motherboard issue
EDIT: is your 1.5tb USB? if so that whould be right

USB 2.0 is 480mbps. That does ~50MB/s so your transfer speeds are fine. If you want them to go higher, connect the external drive via Firewire800, eSata or USB 3.0

Probably random occurence i.e. background task
In any case, WEI results vary and are more often not to be trusted.

did u lock ur quad back to a dual core? if so that usually drops not only you're cpu score but you're ram score as well

thanks for the replys! I don't think its any big deal, as memory testing doesn't show any problems, its just kind of strange... got my attention anyway, and I just wanted to make sure I wasn't about to burn up my RAM or something
