I answered...it's because of the different ram timings and subtimings.
Not all benchmarks react the same to timings/clocks, so you gotta test for ram efficiency with Maxxmem single threaded test. It's a very good way of determining the best ram settings for your rig.

EDIT: The sweetspot seems to lie somewhere close to 2400mhz cl8-11-8-24-1t for most stuff...higher than 2400mhz with loose timings doesn't score better except on memory latency.

Nice!
Now, try to download Mem Tweak-it. You can use that to see your timings and change them from within the Os.
Show us a screenshot and I can help you out.
Also, you might want to go with 1.65v for dram voltage and change the xmp profile manually...

he's politely saying that your RAM timings suck...

Lol, so much AMD hate. With ivy bridge intel made overclocking fun again, but with sandy bridge I started playing with AMD on the side. Sandy was still better performance, but was boring. 10 minutes with a new chip & you knew how fast it would go, period. Nothing you could do would ever make it go any faster.
At least an AMD chip could keep you busy for a while trying to find it's limits, kinda like Ivy does now.

I still haven't had an 8ghz + validation, there's one thing AMD is good at...

Yeah, I'm with you ftw...my 2600k was pretty boring, unlike my phenom 955 be or my older stuff...I got an ai-3870k for aa friend with some hinyx ram and a gigabyte fm1 board, so I might have some fun with that.

i found a trick by myself as usuall:)

1. set xmp in bios 2400 mhz

2. start memtweak

3. made a screenshot of primary secondary and terciary latencies in memtweak

4. set 2600 mhz in bios

5. start memtweak and copy all primary, secondary and terciary latencies from screenshots of xmp ( 2400 mhz )

6. and woohoo.... read 26500 copy 30 000+.....



the key was in tRRSR and tWRDR.... ( terciary latencies.... )



here is results:)

Yeah, that's a good idea too...work your way from that, if you board supports xmp that is.rolleyes.gif
