I just got a new Q9550 and have it mounted on my Biostar I45 board and running it at 3.8GHz. See screenshot. My becnhmarks all seem quite low... less than my Q6600 when it was on this board. However, I am also running Windows 7 64bit which is new for me (Q6600 was running Vista 32bit). Are benches expected to be a lot slower in Windows 7? It isn't just one bench. Even in 3DMark06 my CPU score is lower than my previous Q6600. Is this all Windows 7 or is there something else?
