Check here for some benchmark programs...

Overclocking, Tweaking and Benchmarking - Hardware Canucks

When you say something seems amiss, what exactly do you think is wrong? Slow response time, slow hard drive, etc...?

Give us a more generalized idea so we can compare benchmarks.

What seems off?

SolidCree January 1, 2013 01:55 PM

i was looking though the ram speed and one of the programs that monitor ram speed said 800mhz, not the 1866 speed i expected to see

Bond007 January 1, 2013 03:03 PM

You have to double the speed most programs tell you. If it says 800 then it's 1600mhz effective. Your bios should tell you what it's running at.

Also, in the BIOS make sure the memory divider is set to 9.33 in the "Set Memory Clock" section of M.I.T. That will give you the full 1866Mhz ram speed.

This may be a shot in the dark, but did you install your chipset drivers?

SolidCree January 1, 2013 05:07 PM

Figured it out it seems I looked in bios first, before I installed the Chipset drivers and restarted the computer. Still trying to find a Free Hardware assessor that has everything about the system, including driver versions, Speeds, etc thats useful. Used it before on another computer had some weird name I can't remember...LOL hope that babble was of use to what i'm looking for.

Aida or Everest are a couple good ones.

But honestly..

Cpu-Z for CPU/RAM crap
GPu-Z for GPU crap
