System is built and running but I still have a few more add-ons to finish it 100% Currently the system is this.
MSI 770-G45 board
Phenom IIx2 545
4gb G-Skill ddr3 1600 (OC to 1600mghz)
WD Caviar Blue 500gb HD
1gb HIS ATI 4670 w/ I-silence zalman heatsink
Pioneer DVD combo drive and a Pioneer DVD/cdrw
Windows 7 64
My WEI score currently is 5.5 and my memory and HD are dragging my score down.Memory score is 5.5, CPU 6.5, Graph 6.8, game graph 6.8, and HD 5.9. Ideal I would like to be around 6.5 to 7 for a total WEI score.
How can I get these numbers up on Memory and HD? I'm planning to purchase another WD 500gb HD and set up a RAID 0.Will that raise my WEI score?
I'm guessing the only way to raise my memory is by buying a faster CL number and higher voltage with faster timings correct? Just adding more ram wont raise this number correct? Yet I found it odd that for the first few days I was running the ram at 1333 speed.After I OC to 1600 I ran the WEI again and the memory number did not change at all. Seems like it should if it's based off operations per second? I'm not trying to reach the all mighty 7.9 score. 6.5 to 7 is enough for me. Any ideas?And what would you do first? Buy more ram or set up a RAID? Thanks everyone.
