WEI score down after slight memory overclock?

Dear Community,

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

WEI score = Crap

Change the NB frequency if you want see a better results in you RAM score, but I suggest you test it with a real program like PCMark.

Thanks for quick reply. For the NB frequency would it be better to make it close to stock 2000 or higher? I used to have it at 2200mhz,

For NB, more high = much better BUT in Rana cores like yours the NB frequency can't go above as high, maybe 2600MHz-2800MHz.

Wow, that's very high never though it was possible that high, but I'll try it and 255*9 which is about 2300 mhz and see any noticeable difference, Thanks a lot. I'll post back results.

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!

I just tried increasing the NB frequency to 2295, but the system crashed, I'll stay happily at current speed. Thanks much for all quick answers as always.
