CPU Testing:

For CPU testing I've used pMCore, Everest Ultimate, SiSoft Sandra XII, and SuperPi. All of these tests are pretty heavily dependent on the CPU, so I doubt we're going to see a huge difference between our testing of DDR2 @ 800 Mhz and our DDR3 Testing @ 1333 Mhz, however once we jump to the DDR3 Testing @ 1600 Mhz we should see a bit of a performance increase due to the fact that while testing at 1600 Mhz we've overclocked our CPU by 20% (3.0 Ghz to 3.6 Ghz)

Hard Drive Testing:

For hard drive testing I've used HD Tach, and the results between the 3 tests are probably going to be very similar as the hard drive is not dependent on the memory or CPU very much.
