G.Skill Ares 16GB DDR3-1600 took only 7.8 on WEI

Hi all.. I just want to ask about something , i don't know it's correct or not

my memory specs are :

G.skill Ares Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 CL9 1.50v Dual Channel Memory Kit

and i have a processor intel i7 2700k on it's stock clock

so when i run the windows 7 experience index, it only takes 7.8 for memory and 7.7 for processor...isn't that little number for the memory ?! i heard 8 GB rams could achieve 7.8 easily..am i right ?!

best regards,
Mina Nasery :)

  1. Considering that it's capped out at 7.9 I'd call that pretty good. Besides that, WEI is worthless
  2. Is it running @ 1600MHz?
  3. WEI is not real benchmark and it is ^.
  4. What RAM do u have now?
    Use CPU-Z to find out @ http://www.cpuid.com/

  5. WEI - no doubt a worthless test and even a SB-E (6-core) @ 4.8GHz gets you 7.8. However, WEI can flag an issue -- my guess is that you are running the RAM @ Defaults i.e. DDR3-1333 vs DDR3-1600.

    In the BIOS make sure the ASUS e.g. AI Overclock Tuner -> XMP with Profile 1 or e.g. Gigabyte Extreme Memory Profile (X.M.P.) -> Enabled.

    RAM: WEI 7.9 DDR3-1600 CAS 9 with both 16GB (4x4GB) and 32GB (8x4GB):
  6. I am shocked that I have max score on RAM, hmm.

  7. I consider over 50GB/s of memory bandwidth to be enough for most applications. Should still be able to do basic word processing in a few years
  8. yes it says that

    DRAM Frequency is : 800 MHZ
    FSB:DRAM : 1:6
    CAS#Latency : 11 clocks
    Ras# to Cas# Delay : 11 clocks
    Cycle Time : 28 clocks
    Compare rate : 2T


    so i think as long as it is a dual channel memory that makes it 1600 MHZ..or what ?!

    plz tell me :(
  9. I'm using Asrock Z77 Extreme 4..what should i do exactly ?
  10. Post link to the RAM.

    I have 2600K but its OC,d to 4,7GHz. Why don't u have it OC'd?

    Why is not the timing : 9-9-9-24 ?

    Post the link though.
  12. 7.7 for a 2700k, what motherboard? wonder if this is a troll...

    He is @ stock speed.
  14. http://www.gskill.com/products.php?index=474

    this is the ram link..plus i change the asrock bios settings for Ram from "Auto " to be "XMP PRofile 1.2"

    and when i run cpu-z it gives me 800 MHZ and said it's dual channel on top right

    sorry for my english
  15. Re-run the WEI test.
  16. What are the timings now, with the XMP?
  17. Gskill Sniper 1866 16 GIGS 7.9 HERE.
  18. WEI = Useless and flawed.
  19. i re-ran the test..same results..it seams that there's something wrong and we don't know it..


    and for timings :

    Channel : Dual
    Type : DDR3
    Size : 16384 MBytes

    DRAM Frequency is : 800.2 MHZ
    FSB : DRAM : 1:6
    CAS#Latency : 9.0 clocks
    Ras# to Cas# Delay : 9 clocks
    Ras#Percentage : 9 clocks
    Cycle Time : 24 clocks
    Compare rate : 2T
  20. What is your mobo?
  21. Than it might be the CPU not OC'd perhaps.

    Maybe it wants little more power : ))
  22. what do u mean more power ?!

    I have as a PSU : Corsair TX 750 Watt :

    and for the motherboard : AsRock Z77 Extreme 4 :

    http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/Z77%20Extreme4/


    so, is there something wrong ?
  23. WEI is flawed,and if your system has that kind of spec who cares what the WEI claims.

    No, more power, I meant CPU. The OC.

    If u have the "K" CPU, it is almost sin, not to OC : )

    The difference in 7.8-7.9 is nothing u will ever notice. Its all in milliseconds.

    But OC, its more horsepower to the system. That will be the smartest thing to do.
  25. i7 2700k < i agree with nikorr tweak a k
  26. Whats your CPU cooler?
  27. i have the noctua nh-u9b

    http://www.noctua.at/main.php?show=productview&products_id=17&lng=en

    ok, if the answer is to overclock..so with that cooler, what clock and voltage should i be safely overclock my processor.. for 24/7 overclocking

    thx :)
