has anyone used the benchmarks section on the "everest" program??

I'm wondering what all of the numbers mean....

My memory latency was 44.9ns????????

memory write was 2869 mb/s

Memory read was 6734mb/s

Anyone know what thest numbers mean and if they can tell me HOW MUCH my ram is holding me back?

EDIT: Mine are a whole lot lower...

Memory Read: 2631 MB/s
Memory Write: 852 MB/s
Latency: 102.4 ns

Uhhhh ***? I think it's cuz you're dual channel and I'm not...

Memory latency you want as low as possible, so as close to 0 as you can get because that is how long your memory takes to respond. Memory write and read you want as high as possible because that is how fast it executes data, I.E. opening programs and such. So essentially the higher the read and write the faster programs and such will load. Also the higher FSB your RAM is running, the faster the read/write will be and the lower your memory timings, the lower your latency will be.

And yes, dual channel does help all these things.

I'm pretty sure your gig of ram is fine (its beating mine) and unless it's value ram then don't upgrade.

so i should maybe just buy another gig of the same thing??

It would be pointless to buy better ram and put it beside the ram i have now right???

And, could my ram timings be better b/c of the overclock and motherboard??
