Wtf? Why is your RAM only at 1152mHz when it should be 1600? Me thinks you need to do some BIOS work Kasta

We need mainly Cpu temp, Gpu temp, Case temp and system temp. Will add them all up and whoever has best overall average temp will be the victor :)

I dont know why? but on the oc it reduced the ram speed.

on the intel utility tool it says mem spd 1168mhz then uncore speed 2336 mhz?? oh stock it was running at 1066mhz??

That 667 mhz speed is at ddr2 speed which would be 1333 mhz ddr3. Ddr3 1333mhz is the base clock speed for ddr3. You need to enable xmp (extreme memory profile) in bios i think it is in order to get 1600 mhz out of your sticks. Im sure someone else will clarify on this a bit better than me.

Also need all temp readings in order to calculate your overall score. So need gpu temp, cpu temp, system temp or motherboard bridge temp and case temp plz.

of course, those who have ram running at lower speeds will get the benefit of having tighter timings - overclocking ram often yields limited results. I get the best memory I/O performance at 1ghz sort of speeds, even though the ram is capable of running at double the frequency, but the timings get pretty loose at that speed, to put it mildly!.

This is a good demo, although 4 years old now ( my frigging link wont work. Here www.thetechrepository.com/showthread.php?t=160 )

Shows that the trade off by running ram faster is that it does not really run any faster, but gets hotter.....

I've often found that too. When I underclock my ddr3 1600 mhz sticks to say 1066 mhz then tighten the cas latency to say 5 the overall performance is very noticeable. Id rather tighter timings over mhz any day. Moe proved that to me ages ago.

It's just how it is. Its never that straight forward. I had same issue with my ddr3 1600mhz sticks. Any sticks over 1333mhz has to be overclocked to reach there stated speeds. Usually all you need to do is enable xmp in bios.

yeah i think i did read something about needing to unlock something to get faster settings? its a mb factory OC settting which gives me the 3.33mhz fro cpu and it auto adjusted the memory and all the other settings,
I have another setting which I havent tried yet but it says boosts speed up to 3.70mhz?
