i have an igp(HD3200) and i recently switched my cpu for a turion TL-56
now my memory is clocked at 333mhz it was at 400mhz
I HAVE noticed the difference in performance and so has windows
the cpu is great improvement but do my memory/igp have to suffer
i have amd overdive and i was wondering if i could use that to raise my speeds back up to 400mhz
heres what happened to my windows experience index

my graphics were a 3.0 and a 4.9 before
i have also noticed the yougamers score for games go down in graphics a bit (now telling me i cant play even more games
if i can overclock (lol it wouldnt be so) my mem back to normal then what values do i change in amds overdrive.. i tryed it myself and crahed my system (even without the ability to truely oc since all my hardware has a locked max)

ignore WEI, is always a waste of time. inaccurate and useless.

your system has improved, don't worry about synthetic benchmarks. try a game and see the difference for yourself.

your computer must have a GPU, otherwise you couldn't use it.

if you have an integrated GPU, then you are in the same boat as OP. but WEI is still useless, and the 3200 is one of the better IGPs you can get.

No thats not what im talking about, my memory downcloked to 333mghz from 400mhz, is the cpu incompatible with 400mhz?

i can't imagine that change would have much of an impact on performance. RAM rarely does.

being a turion i assume that you are talking about a laptop? in which case there's not much you can do to get the ram back to 400mhz. like i said though, its unlikely to impact performance.
