Hi All
I just built a desktop. Here is the compoents list.

AMD APU A4-5300
BIOSTAR TA75MH2
Kingston 1600 2G * 2 ( for enable Dual-Channel)
Windows 7 Professional

I ran the assentment after the installation immediately, but the memory score in Windows 7 Experience index only 5.5. Why the memory score is so poor? The Dual-Channel mode should be enable automatically.

I also help my friends built two desktops in several days ago.

A: BIOSTAR TA75MH2 + Samsung 1600 2G *2 , Memory score: 7.7
B: ASRock FM2A75 Pro4-M + Kingston 1600 2G * 2 , Memory score: 5.5

Very strange, isn't?

I have searched the options in BIOS, but no result. Also have tried to found the answer in Google, the same, no result.

So, any ideas?

Windows 7 is known to give inconsistent Windows experience index scores. One thing that might be holding your score back is that Windows 7 gives a score of 5.9 or lower if you have less than 4GB of RAM. Now although you do have 4GB of RAM it seems possible that maybe your integrated graphics might be taking a good portion of that 4GB and dedicating it to graphics. That is a possible explanation. Your friend might be using a dedicated graphics card or isn't using as much RAM for the graphics.

The question is, the said desktop with the same Motherboard and Samsung 1600Mhz 2Gb * 2 won't run into this.

I have build many Desktops for other people , FM1, FM2, 2Gb RAM, 4Gb RAM, But it is my first time run into this problem.

There two DELL desktops in my office, perhaps I could borrow the RAM from it to identify the problem.

Run the memory tester built into windows to test the RAM and then run some other benchmarks. The WEI scores are not very reliable.
