Mobo http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... CPU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... WEI scores the Ram at 5.9... this can't be acceptable considering my Dell Latitude work laptop scores 7.2 on 4GB @ 1600 CPU-Z shows all 4GB at 1600 (so does BIOS) Anyone know why this would be? Thanks More about : ram score wei tiny voices November 14, 2012 7:07:33 PM possibly because your RAM isn't dual channel m 0 l Best solution bignastyid November 14, 2012 7:09:02 PM Could be because you only have 1 stick so its running in single channel mode, get a 2nd stick of that and run it in dual channel to increase performance.

Also, the amount of memory is taken into account. I have 32GB of 1600mhz memory and score a 7.9. m 0 l bikeordie1 November 14, 2012 7:12:40 PM Ok i never knew that one. I'll order another stick. So if i wanted 4GB total, the best way would have been 2- GB sticks to achieve dual channel? m 0 l bignastyid November 14, 2012 7:15:32 PM Yep 2x2Gb stick in quad channel would offer better performance. might aswell go for 8gb over 4 given how cheap ram currently is. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
