    Ok, I just installed Kingston HyperX 8GB (2x4GB) 1600 MHz DDR3 Non-ECC CL9 SODIMM Desktop Memory Dual Channel Kit (PC3 12800) 204-Pin AND Crucial C300 RealSSD Series 256GB SSD 2.5" SATA II / III Solid State Drive (Manufacturer Model# CTFDDAC256MAG-1G1) . Now my while others have reported their RAM at speeds of 1600 my MBP still showing them at 1333 . Here is the link to my score http://db.xbench.com/merge.xhtml?doc2=527265 . Please let me know what else I can do to improve it. Thanks :)

    You do know that XBench hasn't been updated since 2006 and its results are not very accurate on Macs made in late-2006 onwards. I suggest using GeekBench.

    I have the same ram in my machine and it reports running as 1600. Maybe you got a bad pair?

    Besides that, what are you looking for in terms of benchmark results? Do you feel that the performance of your machine is poor or do you just want to squeeze as much out of it as possible?

    I have a 2.3 machine and two of those same SSDs that you have, but here's what I'm clocking in at:
