I have my 1055t 6 core system stable at 4 ghz. rating of 7.6 for all windows catagories except hard drive (solid state drive ordered :p )

my questions..
is my memory type or configuration limiting my system?
If so.. what should i try or do i need to get different memory?
how much further can i push the ghz.. is it worth it to try?
do other similar systems get the same windows exp ratings?

cpu-z and windows rating link:!374&parid=root

cpu-z memory info links:!373&parid=root!372&parid=root

p.s. cpu is liquid cooled (corsair H60)

It's good score WEI and no bottleneck, but WEI not famous for benchmark. U can try compare with Maxxmem2 software for to know, how big speed score of ram

AMD chips are historically not memory limited. I have a 1090t running at 4ghz and 16GB of 1600mhz DDR3. Before that I had 8GB of 1333mhz and could not tell the difference.

This is coming from a guy that does Photoshop and Premiere all day. Video encoding is very memory intensive.

Thanks for the feedback. For now.. all is fast.. and better then ever.. just installed a corsair ssd force 3. :o  It's now my highest rated hardware :) .

updated windows exp:!374&parid=root

Please.. suggest some free beanchmarks I can run? I do have supreme commander and expansion.. good way to run benchmark on that? or if someone can just post a link that can help me? Then I'll do some benchmarks and post them.

Benchmarks are a penis thing. It doesn't matter the size, it's how you use it.

Either you are satisfied with the performance of your games and applications or you aren't. Either they run smoothly or they don't.

My mother (against my advise) bought a $2500 Macbook and all she does is facebook, words with friends, check her email, and look at pictures from her camera.

Bottom line, don't waste time with benchmarks unless you are trouble shooting or testing stability.

Prime95 is the good CPU stress test
Furmark is a good GPU stress test
