Hello everyone!
As you can tell from the title, i found myself troubled with my RAM Transfer speed.
My M/B is an ASUS M5A99X EVO R2.0 and my processor is an AMD FX-8320. My boot disk is an Corsair Force GS 128GB SSD. I installed the two RAM DIMMS in dual channel, with XMP profile loaded, running in 1866Mhz, with all CAS settings as described by the manufacturer.
Still, my computer seems slow (boots in 45 seconds) and NovaBench shows my RAM Transfer speed is 7450Mb/sec. Is this normal?
Am i doing something wrong here? Please enlighten me.
P.S.: I am on stock cooler and not overclocking the CPU. Also i didn't mess with the DRAM voltages or NB or HT frequencies (these are all set to auto).

Rgds

Choosing higher speed ram modules has little to do with Overall PC performance.

Try check with different softwares AIDA64 Extreme Edition or SiSoftware Sandra Lite good for performance benchmark or monitoring.

Computer / Windows booting depends on your SSD speed. With mechanical hard disk its more delayed.

The best way to achieve noticeable performance is by processor overclocking.

This will also speedup booting and your day to computing experience.

Edit: I understand your not happy with the bandwith, Please Try check with different softwares AIDA64 Extreme Edition or SiSoftware Sandra Lite good for performance benchmark or monitoring.

Hi imomun,

Thanks for your post.
Actually what worries me is not the boot time but the Ram transfer speed.
I believe that the ~7500mb/sec is not a proper speed for the given build.

That transfer rate is normal if using Novabench program. Use another program and it will be a much different result.

Thank you
