and i see no difference in any of my 50 games i have installed over the last few weeks on my new build.

Have you benchmarked your games/tasks? Usually the performance gaps are in the ~3-10% region or focused on minimum or non-gpu-bound FPS - Regularly it's like adding 100-300mhz to the CPU OC, which isn't immediately obvious but is still very relevant.

Yeh to be honest, not properly benchmarked the games, i should have said, i cant really see any difference to make a difference, i guess games with faster memory do give a few extra frames per second.

faster memory is good for benchmarking, but in real world gaming "oxymoron" fast memory is not how to get better frame rates.

You are wrong.

if you have two of the identical systems and one is using higher bandwidth memory you will get a higher fps score and just better performance throughout.

processor speed and overall power is much more important than ram speed when it comes to the general use of your computer no matter what it's being used for wink.gif

No way, maybe 2 or 3 fps at most.

This used to be the case for older generations but skylake can make much better use of more bandwidth. the 2133MHz "standard" ram speed does constrict performance to below Haswell in some cases.

How accurate are the sensors on the ranger board?

I had a few loops of  x264 stability test running and the Dual Intelligent Processors tool showed a maximum cpu temperature of ~48°C. However RealTemp showed a max temp about 10°C higher at the same time.

Which one do you think I can trust more?
