My System Specs


ok well i already knew there was a problem with my board, but this proves it. last night after seeing the increase using everest, i decided to run my ram at default (1066 5-5-5-15) and my system wouldnt even stay stable for an hour of crysis. i did some crysis gpu bench inbetween crashes and running my ram at 1066 actually brought my min fps up by about 5, but didnt do anything to my max or avg.

Eldonko - i have been hitting superpi since i got this system. im looking for something with a bit more detailed benchmarks/stats
nothing left and nothing right

1:1 hasn't been the best on Intel systems forever now.

Bandwidth is king on Intel, even if it's only noticeable in synthetic benches for the most part.

On nV chipsets where you can run 1T, then sure, 1:1 1T will likely win, but not so on Intel chipsets.

1:1 has not mattered since the P4 and AMD socket 462 days. Run it as fast as you can.
