Testing (continued):

Now lets get to the benchmarks. The following applications were used to verify memory performance... Passmark Performance Test 7.0 Build 1031 (64-Bit), SiSoft Sandra Lite 2012.09.18.66, and AIDA64 Extreme Edition 2.50.2000.

Passmark Performance Test 7.0 Build 1031 (64-Bit):

PassMark includes five memory tests as well as an overall composite score. The memory tests are measured in terms of MB/s, with a higher score being better. The composite score is shown in unit-less "Marks," and higher is also better. Passmark results tended to show negligible differences between overclocked and non-overclocked memory settings. I have not determined a simple explanation for this.

First up are the "Memory Large RAM" results. At stock speeds the Crucial Ballistix Elite kit beats the G.SKILL reference kit by 12%. Overclocking results for the Crucial Ballistix Elite resulted in less than a one percent gain over the stock settings.



Next up are the "Memory Read - Uncached" results, which reveal there is no significant difference between the Crucial Ballistix Elite kit and the G.SKILL reference kit. Overclocking the Crucial Ballistix did not make much of a difference either.



Then we have the "Memory Read - Cached" results, with the Crucial Ballistix Elite kit falling slightly behind (1%) the G.SKILL reference kit. No benefit to overclocking is observed.
