3DMark 06 Scores... and ram sticks?

  1. Right this will make you laugh?

    My cpu scored 1679 points in 3dmark06 with 1gig of ram (twin 512 sticks)
    I had 1.5gig then I took a stick out to test performance with Everest inspection programme...

    WOW! What a difference it made my data transfer rate tripled with the 2 sticks in. I would never have known anything about it until I had checked my specs and performance against benchmarks of similar models..

    The third stick was eiher faulty or just a confusing factor for the cpu and or mobo...

    ALSO is that a reasonable score for a CPU test on this new version?

    AMD64 dual core 4200+ standard clock speeds just got tweaked ram timings..

    CPU @ 2200mghz... ram @ 400 (3 3 3 8) 3.9us @200mz

    Your memory is now running in Dual Channel mode, you can download CPU-Z to confirm it.

    3DMark06 gives you a bonus for using a dual core CPU. I get a CPU score of about 800 with a 3200+ at stock (2000MHz).
