PCMark Vantage: With this benchmark, I will be running the system suite, as well as the memory test suite. The measurement for the system suite will be the total score. The measurement for memory performance is the total memory score.
SiSoftware Sandra 2009 SP2: In this program, I will be running the following benchmarks: Cache and Memory, Memory Bandwidth and Memory Latency. Higher is better in all tests, except for Memory Latency, where lower is better.
Overall the F3-12800 HK's did great here with high scores being good in all of the tests except Memory Latency - where lower is better. These GSkill modules scored great - especially when overclocked to 1800. The PCMark Vantage scores were slightly lower than other 1600MHz kits, although the score was close and excelled when overclocked. The Kingston's showed a slight advantage at stock, performing very similarly to the Patriots. Sandra 2009 also saw great gains at both stock and overclocked speeds, with the overclocked GSkill coming in close to the 1866MHz kit from Mushkin. The Patriots were the lowest scorers in Sandra since they are clocked in at 1333MHz. The 1600MHz kits all scored very similarly.
