Formula VI crippled WEI score?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, I'm after a bit of troubleshooting help.

First of all, a plea though.....

If you find it necessary to tell me WEI means nothing and this is a pointless exercise, please keep your unuseful comments to yourself, as my issues are not related to how inaccurate WEI is as a benchmark. However, they do still hold some 'indicational' benefits to achieve a 'rough' idea

So I started with this:



Cool I thought, an epeen extension in the eyes of the ill-educated
However, after tinkering as we all do, I now cannot get higher than 5.9 on the memory.
In an effort to resolve this, so far I have reset the bios to optimized defaults, used the clear cmos button, reinstalled windows twice, run the test on a clean install with no other drivers installed, run it with all drivers installed, ensured that IGPU is set to not duplicate and to select PCIe as primary device...... I just don't know what to do now! I want my 7.9 back and my system deserves it! Can anyone offer any input?




Hardware:
Maximus VI Formula
4770K (same issue when both overclocked to 4.8 and at standard clocks)
4GB Corsair Dominator GT 2000MHz CL8
Asus 7950 Direct CU II Top
1000w CM Silent Pro PSU
All cooled with a custom loop including 1x 240 Rad and 1x 360 Rad - Load temps at 4.8, never above 75*C

Thanks for any input, some other tests I have run can be found here smile.gif http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?38811-Formula-VI-crippled-WEI-score

You've got 2GHz CL8 rated RAM, but you're running 1333 CL9 according to the CPU-Z screen shot you provided. Did you apply the XMP profile or tune the RAM settings in the BIOS?

Yep, tried all sorts, XMP, 1600MHz, 2000MHz CL8, CL9, 1T, 2T etc the guy helping me on the ROG forum just said his 8GB DDR2 kit that has half the MB/s as mine scores 7.4 we are coming to the conclusion that Windows may not be seeing all 4096MB As I read that any less than 4GB and WEI defaults to 5.9 regardless of throughput. So now I need to find out whether RAM can loose capacity over time etc???

Stupid question -- you ARE running the 64-bit version of Windows 7, right?

Of course thumb.gif

Not a stupid question though, when I searched this, all I found was people complaining about not using all their ram and finding they were on 32bit
