Need Help: L1N64-SLI w/ FX-70's

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So here's the deal, I've been working on overclocking the CPU's and RAM a bit today, and I've noticed something that has happened a few times... I've been using the Everest benchmark to get some numbers on my memory performance throughout my various clocks and timings. So I usually start off with the Read test, then the Write test, then the Latency test... well, I generally write down each result in a little book/ledger, and I've noticed that if I hit the Latency test again I'll get a similar number, and maybe close to the same number if I do it again, but after two or three Latency tests my result jumps way up, from like 52.6ns to 75.2ns.... and from then on if I continue to repeat I get the same type of results. But to follow it up, if I go back to my Read/Write tests my results likewise are waaay down... like I'll go from 5485 MB/s Read, down to like 3500 MB/s... or from 2969 MB/s Write down to like 2123 MB/s. And again, repeats are thereafter pretty consistent in that low range.

So there is something that's obviously changing in my system, likely via the BIOS, that is ramping down my system performance for some reason. Does anyone know what is doing this, or might be doing this?? REP+ if you help me get this fixed!

EDIT: if it helps, this is the 680a SLI chipset.

How so? Have others experienced similar benchmark disparities...?
