I'm working through what Woomack did, can anyone tell me which version of Aida 64 I should use?

Well, that R23 score is a result.I ran Cinebench R23 and found an increase from 11717 to 12424. Yeah, I noticed the timings too, they stood out to me. I wasn't sure about memtest for testing stability. I have been playing a few games and I did some CPU rendering as well with no crashes or errors.
<edit> The difference on Cinebench may be greater, but I've manually set my CPU max at 85℃. </edit>
<edit2> It seems a little bit counter intuitive to me, wouldn't there be a greater performance increase in just tightening the timings at a stock speed? </edit2>
Okay, that kind of makes sense a bit. Non-sense, you've been a great help, you've given me some starting points and much reading to learn from.Well, that R23 score is a result.
Tight timings vs higher frequency depends on the platform. I know AMD used to really benefit from tighter timings @ lower frequencies & Intel was the opposite. The last time I was playing with RAM (other than enabling XMP) was on my AMD FX8320. I overclocked it from DDR3-1600 to DDR3-1866, but I couldn't improve the timings from 9-9-9.
Glad you got Woomack's overclock review of your RAM. That should be a much greater help than I could be.
Exactly correct my friend.I just recently read a post by Mr.Scott saying CB R23 produces its best scores after a clean boot. If you rerun it after that clean boot the score will go down. Also before that clean boot R23 run, make sure nothing is still happening in the background, such as Win Update or an AV scan.
So many odd quirks with various benchmarks, it's a full time job to keep up with them. Have you pushed the RAM further or set any timings lower?
That 650W is enough with your listed system... even overclocked.and I'm going to have to upgrade the PSU
Oh, I agree fully, that's why I'm not looking at a 1000W or anything else utterly ridiculous - I'm really just looking at a 750W Gold Seasonic - I can pick that up for $105 Canadian. I have a really cool dual PSU setup that a friend gave me, but to use it I'd either need a roll of gorilla tape or a new chassis to stuff it into. It's also not like the 650W Seasonic will go to waste either, I can put it into my roommates system when she builds. LOL, I think it still has about 9 years left on the warranty.I agree 100% it's critical. I also believe in not overbuying.
Grab one of those and see what it says. Remember, you have a 90%+ efficient psu so if it says 500W, you're using ~450W from the psu. I think you'd be surprised at how much power is actually used.
Depending on who you're asking, buying more than you already have can be considered ridiculous when it will work just fine.Oh, I agree fully, that's why I'm not looking at a 1000W or anything else utterly ridiculous
Okay okay okay ....Depending on who you're asking, buying more than you already have can be considered ridiculous when it will work just fine.
If you need another PSU for another system, get it, but if you really don't, I surely wouldn't spend $100 on a new one.
