    Cool First ever new build and PC Mark Score

    Just did my first ever PC Mark score and it was 4328.

    It said my Processor was a quad core in the score is this a typo ?
    Also my Ram was said to be running at 667 mhz when the sticks say 1600mhz.

    Im a noob at this so any info would help.

    This is a stock score so wondering what others stock score are thanks for the help.
    AMD FX 8-core 3.6 GHz, 16.0 cach
    Asus Sabertooth 990 fx
    4x4G Corsair Vengance SDRAM DDR3 1600
    SSD 128G Crucial
    Gigabyte GTX560 SLI
    OS Windows 7 ULT 64 bit

    as far as the memory speed, you need to set that manually in the bios.

    set the manufacturer's recommended voltage first, then reenter the bios and set the speed.

    AMD should have called it a 4 core +, it has 4 modules, they added an integer unit to each module, so it has 2 integers and 1 floating point per module. So it will act and bench like a weak 4 core if it needs the floating point ( program needs to be tune for AMD FMA instruction and or AVX instruction) and if it the program call for only integer and can call for all 8 integers units, it will work as a very weak 8 core. The fetch queue(needs more) and or decode width (only 4 wide per module, should be 9 to 12 parallel feeds of groups of 3 or 4 per unit ) and or the too slow cache ( latencies, wait state to many cycles, L1 at 4 wait and older AMD was at only 3, L2 at 21 and should be about 10, L3 at a forever slow 65 wait cycles and should be 20 to 30) adds up to the integer and or the floating point units waiting around for work. It would cost maybe 1.5X more, but run maybe 3X better.

    The 4328 is a nice fast score (Good job ), your amount of ram and SSD and GPUs took up the stack of the CPU

    "Ram was said to be running at 667" runs on 800MHz bus for 1600MHz data rate, as uddarts said needs to be set in bios for memory volts, speed and timing.
