Corsair Vengeance in Windows Experience Index

Hello Guys,

For some reason, out of curiosity I tried to run the WEI just to check my scores. Here are the scores:

CPU - Core i5 2500k - 7.6
RAM - Corsair Vengeance 4gb - 5.9
Graphics - 7.7 - 560 Ti
Gaming Graphics - 7.7 - 560 Ti
HD - 5.9

I am wondering why I am only getting 5.9 in the Memory. Here is the link of the memory. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

According to my friend I should not be getting that score under RAM. I tried to check but the timings under bios are correct. 9-9-9-24. I also checked it under CPUZ and it says its running at 800Mhz. I am not really sure if I am getting this score because I only have a single ram at the moment but my friend says he is using a low profile kingston ram (single only) and is getting a score of 7.2.

Any ideas???

Get another stick. It's probably running in Single channel mode. Your friends board *may* be running his single Kingston stick in dual channel even with single slot use. I've had similar issues with RAM. Most boards default to single channel when only one stick or slot is in use.

Thanks for the response. I'll try to do that. I will just update this thread if I still encounter problems even after adding another memory.

If 4GB is being used with x64 Win 7/Vista WEI will default to 5.5~5.9. Otherwise >4GB at DDR3 1600 7.6~7.8 WEI.

why does it do that, does that mean the os is not taking advantage of my ram?

WEI has some PRESETS values; RAM is one of them. I run across this all of the time with 4GB & x64. You'd have the same score if you had either 2X2GB or 1X4GB. IF you had a 32-bit OS then your score would go way up. Otherwise there's a problem.

Zhayenoth: I had the same issue and I fixed it this way. Go to your BIOS and disable the onboard graphics of intel since you dont need it. Windows has allocated part of your 4gig to the onboard graphics. By disabling the onboard graphics in your Bios the whole 4gig would be available for you and your WE would improve. Mine moved from 5.9 to 7.7. It works!!!!!!!Hope you are on windows 7 64bit anyways. My 2 cents
