G.Skill FLARE PC3-16000 Memory Review

SiSoft Sandra

 

CPU Performance

SiSoftware Sandra (the System ANalyser, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) is an information & diagnostic utility capable of benchmarking the performance of individual components inside a PC.

CPU Arithmetic

The CPU arithmetic test ascertains the processor's capabilities in terms of numerical operations. Two subtests named Dhrystone and Whetstone are carried out respectively. This is not a measure of latency and thus higher is better.

The Arithmetic test shows frequency of memory taking precedence; albeit the difference remains marginal.

CPU Multimedia

The CPU Multimedia Test focuses on CPU based operations that may occur during multimedia based tasks. The magnitude of the score depends on the processor's ability to handle Integer, Float and Double data types

Meanwhile the Multimedia test takes a preference towards memory latency.

Memory Bandwidth

In terms of SiSoft's memory bandwidth test, the results are near enough level.

Memory Latency

Without surprise, the G.Skill configuration at 7-7-6-20 timings offers the lowest memory latencies.

The problem with the RAM not going to up to 2000Mhz might be that your motherboard is not specified as being compatible with the RAM. Only selected boards have been comfirmed of being able to run these fellas at 'full':

ASUS M4A89TD PRO

ASUS M4A89GTD PRO

ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3

*The Asus Crosshair Formula is also compatible, though it does not say so on the compatible motherboards list.

Sorry btw if im just stating the obvious to you though matey. I'm probably just being a dick.

Id really like a picture of the ram installed with fan on the M/B so we can compare them to the Corsair but I guess thats too much to ask these days
