Poor RAM performance Troubleshoot - Help! Tags: Memory G.SKILL daasgoot December 15, 2012 3:26:52 AM Hello All, I just finished setting up my new build. AMD-FX 6300 ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0 G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-14900CL9D-8GBXL GeFroce GTS 250 Raidmax 530W psu 2x 360GB 7200RPM seagate barracuda HDD's *NOTE - mobo and cpu both support 1866 RAM I set my memory to 1866 in Asus UEFI Bios. I set my timing to 9-10-9-28 (recommended by G.SKILL) I set my Voltage to 1.5V (recommended by G.SKILL) The bios accepts the speed, computer runs fine - no boot issues, crashing, bsod's etc... The problem I am having is that when i run passmark performance test, the RAM seems to be performing below what is should be. My benchmarks are as follows: Latency = 60 ns (lower is better) Read uncached = 6.7 gb/s (higher is better) Write = 5.4 gb/s (higher is better) According to benchmarks from other users - this same ram should be performing as follows: Latency = 22 ns (lower is better) Read uncached = 14 gb/s (higher is better) Write = 11 gb/s (higher is better) As you can see this is a huge difference. Any ideas on what the problem might be? Let me know what other information you need from me to help determine the problem. Thanks!
