    Default Asrock Z68 extreme 4 memory performance

    Hi
    My system with Asrock Z68 extreme 4 MB seems fine except memory performance.
    I have a Corsair Kit 4GB DDR3 1600MHz CL7 CMX4GX3M2A1600C7.
    In Bios I set XMP profile 1 with correct timmings.
    But in Windows experience index I got 5.9 for memory performance. Everything else is fine. Can you help me with this? Thanks

    try memory on auto forget the xmp and see how that goes.
    or use a program like aida 64 or cpu-z or sisoft sandra to read your best memory profile,.For dram voltage,perhaps go a bit higher than default ,just dont go over 1.65V.

    hit 1 wait state for your memory if its reading 2, like it should be 1N not 2 N.
    nb: your post attachment is invalid,for me at least.

    Set all settings auto for memory in bios and nothing change.
    Cpu-z reports now 9-9-9-24 and 1T but the same 5.9 memory performance.
    This is strange couse a friend of mine which has Asrock P67 extreme 4 has 7.9 for memory performance with cheaper memory.

    Maybe the problem is size? More memory installed means higher score. My 8GB (2x4GB) kit 1600MHz is rated 7.8

    Finally with help from my friend i found what to do.
    From bios i disabled the intel graphics.
    After that memory performance reported is 7.8
    Enabling intel graphics back gave me the poor 5.9 memory performance.
    So ...this is the cause.
    And I found that it's easier to overclock both the processor and discrete videocard with intel graphics disabled.
    I could overclock Asus Radeon 6950 direct CU much more.
    Before disabling the intel graphic the sistem become less stable when I tried to overclock discrete graphics.
