Recommended Posts

Hey! i have just built a new system with the parts below:


Asus P5N-E SLI 650i

Intel Core 2 Duo E4500



I am concerned about the ram, Windows Vista rates it as 4.8 yet every is telling me it shoud get rated 5.9 easy! - http://img137.imageshack.us/img137/9123/windowsratingab6.jpg


What could cause it to get rated so low? have i set something up wrong?


My Ram Settings:

tcl 4

tRCD 4

tRP 4

tRAS 12

Command Per Clock - 2 clock

TRC 24



NB Core 1.4v

Ram - was 2.013v, now 2.1v... makes no diffrence

Dual Channel Mode

This might be the "cause" of that "low" score. In addition, the usable command rate setting(s) are tied to the divider ratios of the memory controller of Intel-based systems with any company's chipset and memory controller.


By the way, what speed is your memory running at?

I have been having a mess about


Ram with no processor overclock - Rated 4.8



Ram with processor overclock to 3ghz (275x11) - Rated 5.5



Could it be something to do with the FSB? all i did was change the FSB here: http://img266.imageshack.us/img266/360/dscf8091ig8.jpg

from 800 to 1100 which looks to have set the bus speed to 275
