The motherboard did not have a problem detecting the correct timings right away.
No point in wasting time, let’s get down and dirty with the testing.
This isn’t a benchmark but it will give you some information about the system and the RAM. Speeds, voltages and timings are all important things to know. The middle picture shows possible timings at certain speeds for this RAM. I’ll be testing the RAM for 1066MHz and overclocked to 1600MHz. The timings for the 1066MHz were set to 8-8-8-20. Perhaps the more impressive thing about Crucial is their standard 1.5v versus normal 1.65v on triple channel RAM.
Motherboard auto-set the timings for 1600MHz at 9-9-9-24 with 1.5v which is actually the stock values for 1333MHz.
PCMark is a good benchmark to give you an overall idea about performance in different areas that you use your computer. Though it is an old benchmark it’s still a challenging benchmark that will make any computer sweat.
The memory particular part of the test is “Memory suite”. Which came back with interesting results. With 1066MHz scoring almost 8500 it lowered to 7356 when running at 1600MHz. However overall productivity suite and the gaming suite have both increased by a significant amount.
