Ive Pretty much given up on AM3 with the death of me STT's (yes Beep / fl0w3n, they are dead
(or at least if they wasnt before, then they certainly are now
)) and a constant stream of freeze ups , Bsods and crashes with the Sector 5's, I just couldnt be bothered continueing with em!
So tonight i decided to play with my old faithful e8400 and a couple of sets of ballistix
Ive got quite a few sets of ddr2 and Ive always thought of the Ballistix as been some of the slower sets. They will reach respectable Mhz and oc higher than most sets but usually clock for clock in most benchmarks they come 2nd best!!
Anywayz the first set started to play up early on so I quickly swapped em out for the 2nd better
I was quite supprised actually cos at the moment I havnt got a good 775 board for ocing so Im using my old Maximus Formula x38 which can only do about 525-530 FSB max and in just a few hours managed these results>>
Latency @ 55.0ns
Bandwidth @ 10.063GB/s
Spi32m @ 9m59.875secs
A couple of things to note, the sisoft sandra latency window isnt showing the graph or info. Im not sure why but presumably its because of the chopped down tweaked os Im using. The bandwidth result is in a different os and shows all info.
If the Latency result is judged not aceptable then I have a 55.4ns that shows everything
Secondly , the motherboard tabs show the board as a x38 Rampage Formula because Im using the Rampage Formula Bios mod on the Maximus
