So I have the Triple Channel setup of DDR3-1600 memory and like most I caught on to the fact that it was only running at 1066. So Long story short I switched my BIOS to XMP Mode which ups both the Memory and slightly oc's the CPU to keep everything in sync.
Oddly, I benchmarked using both the latest version of 3Dmark as well as Valley and so no real difference.
With everything set to auto in my bios:
3Dmark Physics score for Fire storm = 8027
Unigen Valley score 25.5 FPS @ 1066 score
The running the same test but with XMP profile loaded:
3Dmark Physics score for Fire storm = 8073
Unigen Valley score 25.6 FPS @ 1071 score
I'm I missing something because I don't see any reason to push it for no gains.
