Test Bench for Corsair Dominator 4GB PC3-12800

Our test bench is running a Sandy  Bridge i5 2500k CPU at stock 3.3GHz with a fresh install of Windows 7 Professional SP1 running the latest Windows Updates and drivers.  Due to a problem with our nVidia GTX 570 I had to break out an old GTX 275 running the latest nVidia 275.33 drivers. 

Corsair Dominator Test Rig

The ASUS P8P67 motherboard has the latest 1608 bios, up to date peripheral drivers, and it was configured with turbo boost disabled and manually fixed memory speeds for each test.  There is a single SATA II WD 7200 RPM 500 GB drive, LG ODD, and OCZ 700 watt PSU and the stock Intel cooler.

We have a 24” Dell monitor to test games at both 800×600 and the native 1920×1200 resolution.
