Everst Ultimate Edition is a professional system information, diagnostics and benchmarking program for Win32 platforms. It extracts details of all components of the PC. It also tests the actual read and write speeds of your memory giving a fairly accurate look of true memory performance.
The Copy Test:
Memory Latency Testing:
Results: Everest Ultimate 4.50 build 1480 showed very slight differences between the 1642MHz and 2135MHz in the read and write tests with just a 410MHz FSB setting. This confirms what I saw in SiSoftware Sandra benchmarking on the previous page. While the read and write test didn’t yield any good differences the Copy test and Latency test did. The 271MB/Sec bandwidth difference in the Everest Copy test was only 3%, thus not significant. With the Front Side Bus manually set to 462MHz x 8 (3.696GHz) the memory performed much better than 410MHz x 9 (3.690GHz). The higher the front side bus is increased the better the Corsair 2133MHz memory kit does as it needs the additional bandwidth! Why the EPP 2.0 setting only puts the FSB at 410MHz by default is beyond me.
