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.
The PCmark Vantage testing shows that the test is not heavily influenced by the system memory capacity, but by the latencies and speed of the memory. In the Sandra testing the faster speed of the modules help them outperform the comparison field in the baseline testing, but the comparison field catches up when overclocked. The OCZ Flex EX set does deliver the highest memory bandwidth in the testing both stock and overclocked.
