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.
In the PCMark Vantage testing, the Patriot PC3 20000 Sector 5 modules are hampered by the loose timings. At the 2000MHz, Sector 5 kit scores slightly higher. The memory scores are much lower than expected. Two motherboards and two complete installs of the OS gave similar results. In Sandra, the 2500MHz rated modules were the highest performing in each test.
