8 GB of RAM! - Page 2

post #11 of 20
I had the same issue when i had 2GB OCZ Reapers DDR2 800 4-3-3-15, i had a rating of 5.4 then 5.7 with 4GB. With just 2GB of my recent Dominators i hit 5.9 running in sync/linked mode @ 1333Mhz. I believe it takes into account speed more than timings...

I have a 780i with 4GB of OCZ reaperX 800 at 4-4-3-15 and it is pegged at 5.9 and always has been. I'm going to be getting another 4GB to add to it, because the board is supposed to be able to handle 8 and I'm going to have this system for a loooong time. Saying you'll never need 8GB of RAM is like saying no one will ever need a quad core processor. With the way Windows is going, the next version might even require that much...

Have you had any problems with your Seagates? I have the same ones you have and one of mine took a nosedive 4 days after the RMA period expired.

Its all the same speed, 5-5-5-12 1000MHz across the board and I haven't overclocked or done anything with the timings because I don't know what I'm doing yet.
Well remember we both have simular systems guess what my score is too? LOL As already said don't worry about the score.

Vista rating can be differnt on every try.
Just run it next time after boot up and see if it changed.
But I would not giv much on the rating anyway ;o)


BTW: with 8GB you can easily disable your Windows swap file...

Just to be safe, download and run CPU-Z. Take a screenshot of the memory tab and post it here so we can verify your memory is actually running at the speed you think it is.

I know that 4 dims puts alot of strain on the memory controller, it makes overclocking a *****, but it may also hurt performance...
Don't quote me on this im just theorizing.
