MemTweakIt has been available as stand-alone software to download since the Maximus IV’s were available, but the ROG team has been developing the competitive side on the website for a little while. Today it launches under ROG Pro in open beta.
As the name suggests, MemTweakIt is a software that can read and also tweak the system DDR3 DRAM (memory) timings, as shown below.
Which motherboards can be used?
All ASUS P67, Z68, X79 and Z77 motherboards can use the MemTweakIt software to read the latency settings, generate an efficiency score and submit results to the ROG Pro database. All boards can use AI Suite II to increase the memory voltage and tweak the frequency of the base clock (which affects the memory clock) as well.
In addition to this, only ROG Maximus IV, Rampage IV and Maximus V motherboards can tweak the memory timings within Windows, due a BIOS-level enhancement by ROG engineers.
Submitting a score
The latest version 1.01.7 (available for download at the bottom of the MemTweakIt page) includes a validate button. Click it, then login with your ROG forum account registered email address. This will submit your DRAM efficiency score to the online database.
As most extreme overclockers will prefer to work offline, the file can be saved and submitted via another PC using this webpage (or click the validation web page link in the software). The file is encrypted so scores cannot be tampered with.
ROG Pro Leaderboard
During June we will be adding a filtering system, so you can compare your score against those who have the same motherboard, or the full list.
Comments can be left by clicking the link on the right, while a screenshot of each submission can be seen by clicking the score itself.
This very first version of MemTweakIt has the Beta stamp. We welcome feedback while we tweak and tune the software and website design to our fan’s needs. We also envisage to continually adding features and tweaking the design as the year progresses. Please drop into the MemTweakIt forum with your thoughts!
