    Default X48-DS4 vs Vostro 400

    A bit perplexed I am. I would expect that the G.SKILL would smoke the Crucial, but according to pcpitstop.com tests it is 30% slower! Yikes! Then again is pcpitstop reliable? Is there a reliable memory speed testing program? Any and all suggestions are welcome.

    Thanks

    I use Everest and SiSandra. Were both of those tests done on similar ranked IC chips? Doubt it. They probably tested cheap G.Skills against Crucials best OLDER models

    Where is a link to the test you see so I can have a gander?

    I am the "they" in this. The computers in my signature are both mine and the ones I tested with pcpitstop.com. Green = Butt spanking NEW Gigabyte system and Blue = 7 month old "off the shelf" Dell system.

    The G.SKILL memory: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231166

    The memory in the Dell is Hyundai (HYMP512U64CP8-S6), not Crucial - sorry. Had Crucil on the brain for some reason. Dell probably buys this memory by the boatload.

    I am not registered with pcpitstop and just run the anon testing. I'll register, run the tests and give you the links.

    I have Everest V4.50.1330 and might have SiSandra 2007.

    Thanks

    30% slower is impossible, unless you've got something misconfigured in the BIOS.

    OK, here are the pcpitstop results. Interesting ...

    I did a "Load Optomized Defaults" on the X48, then manually set the memory to 5-5-5-15. Still, I was expecting a much wider gap between the G.SKILL PC2-8500 and Hyundai PC2-6400. There may be a bit of operator ignorance going on here re the X48 BIOS settings.

    Well first off you cannot compare ram with diffferent motherboards, let alone different chipsets.

    Optimized defaults just so you know is not the best way either to "Test" anything. Seeing as that gives the same result for both rams sounds like not a very good testing method. Try comparing them in everest, tools cache and benchmark. And if you want your tests to be anywhere near similar to each other ram speedwise since you are comparing the ram you will need to disable speedstep and be sure both ram sets are running the same timings and freq. Which you cannot even do as you have no access to the settings in the DELL BIOS.

    Either way, just so you know. The G.Skill is WAY better then the hyundai Dell at ANY speed

    Now what you could do is test both sets separately in your X48 at the same timings and speeds IE: 6400 (800Mhz) 4-4-4-12. There you will have your wanted results with the G.Skill winning
