WinSAT - Low memory score
Hi everybody!

WinSAT (Windows System Assessment Tool) is giving me a low score on memoty
(2.4) and I would like some help to find out what's the problem exactly.

I have 2 x 512 of OCZ dual channeling (wich I think [dual channeling] is not
supported by my motherboard [K8N-E deluxe]) and 1 x 1GB of Ultra memory.
They're all DDR400.

I tried switching my pair of 512 bars form slots 1 and 2 to slot 2 and 3 and
it didn't change a thing.

Any idea?

Charles-A.

Hi there,

What is the model number of your MoBo?
You can check what is compatible on the vendors web site.
Remove whatever memory is NOT compatible and run the test again.

Cheers.

Hi MarkyMarc,

Thanks for your response!

I'll check the model number when I return home tonight. I'll also try to
run the test without my 2 dual channel bars.

And I've found this about my motherboard.

Memory Support : 3 slots, DDR400, 3GB max, single-channel

I'll keep you updated. (And I will contact the shop that build my comp if I
found that they really messed up with the memory part.)

Re: WinSAT - Low memory score
Alright,

So I just tried almost every possibilities with my 3 memory sticks.

Here's the result (pretty weird as you'll see)

Slot 1 | Slot 2 | Slot 3 || Result
1GB 512 512 2.4
1GB - - 4.3
1GB 512 - 4.0
512 512 - 4.0
512 - 1GB 4.0 (just to check the 3rd slot)
512 512 1GB 2.4


So for now I'm with the 1.5 option...

If someone can explain how this is possible, I would be gratefull.

Thank you,

Charles-A.

Re: WinSAT - Low memory score
That's definitely weird, and I don't see any logic behind it. I guess I'd
drop to 1.5Gb until I could afford another 1Gb stick, then try the two of
them and see if you get a 4.3 or better...
