    What? I only scored 7.9 for everything EXCEPT my cpu (Intel i2500-K / stock clock @ 7.5)

    Just kidding, it's nice to finally see the 7.9 scores.
    Now to start some oc'ing with the cpu to get 7.9 there too. (yea...right!!!)

    :laugh: yea...yea/... I know the WIn Exp Score doesn't MEAN anything.

    I just needed to see it as high as it can go, for my sanity. I'm sick of looking at the 5.9 thing.

    Update: Ok, no improvement on cpu score after overclocking cpu to 4.327. I'm afraid that's about it for this particular cpu.

    Im not sure but I dont think you can get a 7.9 score no matter how high you clock that i5.
    Raw says thanks.

    My 2600k is at 4.6 and has a 7.8, and it had a 7.8 at 4.7 IIR. Seems 7.9 CPU score is elusive

    I was thinking I should spray it with WD-40 or something, to loosen it up a little.

    LOL thread.
    Just in sake of sharing: I get 7,8 for the i5 CPU (4400 Mhz) and 7,9 for everything else.
    On the XP window it is stated that 7,9 is the top of the hill, no matter what monste you have, it's 7,9 period.

    Good luck. My rig is 7.8, with my SB-E 3820 being the weakest link, and not even a 4.75ghz overclock can get it to bump up. I suspect an Intel 6-core is needed to hit that 7.9 CPU mark, not that it really matters because half of the WEI tests don't even test half of what it says it does. I also wouldn't put my Phenom II 940 within .5 points of my 3820, which shows how crappy this score really is. :p

    best thing is to just ignore wei rating and just post your actual system specs whereever you want to

    Im not sure if even a SB-E 6 core can get 7.9. There was a thread about it a while ago and it seemed there was some sort of impossible limit at 7.8.

    I remember reading about a SB-E 6 core at 6ghz that wasnt even 7.9... so yeah... good luck with your i5. :roll::roll:

    I bet you server platforms could hit it. Dual E5 xeons or dual 16-core intelagos procs?

    No surprise here. My 3820 at 4.5Ghz gets 7.7 as well. I'm not quite sure what Windows is measuring here. :p

    Iirc, the 7,9 score for a CPU can only be obtained by having 16 cores(either logical or real cores).
    It also still has to be quite quick per thread, but seeing as I've got a 7,8 with my *8-core* bulldozer at 4,4GHz aswell, it seems like the 16 core thingy could hold true.
    It might also explain why i5 2500k's can never score as high as a bulldozer 8 core, eventhough they might have more raw processing power. The limit for a quadcoremight be something like 7,5, while 8 cores gets you to 7,8 max.

    all you have to do is go to Windows\Performance\WinSAT\DataStore and open the xml file in word and make everything say 7.9
