The topmost result is the benchmark that has only the M.2 connected in the desktopWhat was the results when you ran the benchmark with only the m.2 connected in the desktop?
Was the install of windows done on the desktop or the laptop?
Speccy is showing you have a meatball stick of ram in the mix.
The Windows OS was always installed on that M.2. My laptop has only one M.2 slot and no other SATA ports, so when I tested the M.2 on my laptop it was the only drive in the system, and contained the same OS install as when it was on my desktop. (this was the succesful benchmark that is marked green)
I'm not too familiar with Speccy. Can you elaborate on what seems faulty with the RAM?
I did notice Speccy said I had 'dual-channel' RAM, but to my understanding I have 4 sticks of RAM, not 2.
edit: I see what you mean now. one of the sticks is running at mostly 30Hz...... damn.
Is there anything I can do to try and remedy this?
Or is this just another sign that my motherboard might be fried?
