I have been playing around with my Athlon ii X3 435 2.9Ghz until I finally got it to 3.7Ghz, but the strange thing (am guessing) the closest I get to stock memory Speed 1333mhz, HT 2000, and NB 2000 the better my memory score is on WEI. I used to have my memory overclock to ~1470mhz and then when I downclocked memory to 1332mhz surprisingly the score went up? Then I overclock my CPU a little more so my memory went to 1356mhz(255x5.33) NB 2040, and HT 2040, although the CPU score increased from 6.9 to 7.1 , my memory went down by 0.1. Does anyone know why this could be ? Thanks in Advance
I'm using a very different system, but I did some mem benchmarks at 1440, 1600, 1800 and noticed that my 1600 speeds were the fastest, and lowest latency. I tried using CPU speeds as close as possible to keep things even... so, yeah, definitely seems like sometimes RAM just likes certain frequencies or something. Still, the good news is RAM isn't going to affect overall performance all that much. It's still hella fast!
