Gone Down?????

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
I just bought some geil 1 gig ram running on cas 2.5 and my score went down 1200 points in aquamark 3. i used to have 512mb cas 3.

could it be that my vid card is bottlenecking my cpu and ram hence my lower score?

it is properly installed btw.

Check for RAM stability, its likely not stable.

Well you could start out with Super PI, run 32M and if it passes download Memtest and test it.. It sounds like your RAM isnt stable, and a unstable system is a unhappy system.. And a unhappy system doesnt like to give you good benchmarks scores lol.

Ram has a 2 multiplier, so 200 is really 200x2 = 400mhz. Just like cpus have an FSB of say 200 and a multiplier of say 15, 200x15 = 3000mhz.

Is the ram running the correct/advertised timings? Also, give a screenshot cpuz, the main screen of it, and one of the memory tab. I want to make sure you arent running a divider. You can open two cpuz's, have one on the main screen and one on the memory screen and take a screenshot.

If you dont have cpuz, get it here:

I had the same probablem. It was a ram issue, i learned that inorder to hit a high FSB on me CPU, that i would have to run my ram in a divider.
