Personally, I don't benchmark. To me, benchmarking is another test for troubleshooting if/when you think there is a problem.

I use Passmark and 3DMark for benchmarking and performance testing. For testing things like RAM and hard drives I use tools like MemTest and HDTune. I would start by installing the OS and just seeing if you have any issues before doing anything else.

I've got win10 x64 installed and running ... what I am concerned about is the memory as it doesn't seem to be running at the correct speed as in cpu-z it 2133 but it is actually 3733

maybe I should re-word the question ... how do I make sure my memory is running at the correct speeds. Everything else appears fine (and fast)
