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 :)

Considering that it's capped out at 7.9 I'd call that pretty good. Besides that, WEI is worthless

Is it running @ 1600MHz?

WEI is not real benchmark and it is ^.

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):

I am shocked that I have max score on RAM, hmm.

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

yes it says that

DRAM Frequency is : 800 MHZ
FSB:D RAM : 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 :(

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.

7.7 for a 2700k, what motherboard? wonder if this is a troll...

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

Re-run the WEI test.

What are the timings now, with the XMP?

WEI = Useless and flawed.
August 3, 2012 11:35:58 PM

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

Than it might be the CPU not OC'd perhaps.

Maybe it wants little more power : ))

WEI is flawed,and if your system has that kind of spec who cares what the WEI claims.

Best solution

what do u mean more power ?!

I have as a PSU : Corsair TX 750 Watt :

http://www.corsair.com/power-supply-units/tx-series-pow...

and for the motherboard : AsRock Z77 Extreme 4 :

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


so, is there something wrong ?

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.
