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 SP4: 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.
The Mushkin Ridgeback kit performed well in all the tests. In PCMark Vantage, the Ridgeback came in second place with a total score of 6280 and third place in the memory score test. In the Sandra 2009 tests the Mushkin kit again performed very well, having a great latency score and staying relatively even with the other kits in the benchmark. Once overclocked, the system had visible performance gains, showing why it is that overclocking your system in beneficial.
