Is the HDD an Mechanical or SSD and if its Mech. your HDD score will never top 5.9 It sounds like you might have a 5400rpm Mechanical. What are the rest of your scores?

Your scores are fine as long as your HDD is not a mechanical spinning drive do not worry the only way that 5.5 will improve is with an SDD

The thing is that my brother's score is 5.7 with a crap system and his pc is like 3 times faster than mine .Could this be my hard disk ? i doubt it i got like double his scores in every other aspect :/  What could it be ? i run Ccleaner and disk defragment

Its way more complex than that. It also depends on what you guys have installed, how much hdd space, the age of, the wear and tear, what you guys have running during the index, how you have your systems tweaked ie. system services that are off or on, what kinda sytem tweaking software do you use if any... so do you see my point your system is prolly fine just do a run down of your installed software and system startup programs and manage them a bit that should help.
After I do a fresh install on my system and fully update windows and drivers I spend a few hours tweaking system services, I also use TuneUp Utilities and Cacheman to tweak my system to my needs, but becareful with such programs too, Cacheman will un configure a RAID if you are not careful it can be undone but still. I have spend over 2 years with these softwares and have got a pattern down that helps boost my system quite a bit.

There is also fast and slow disk access space how full your mechanical hdd gets depends on its performance the fuller it gets the more its got to spin to do what it needs to do. Try to keep 20 - 25% of your hdd free at the at the least if you dont want to see any serious performance hits.

I barely understood what u ve said . I am not that good in PC's so i see things a bit more simple .For example i was using exactly the same system but witha dual core processor and a gt 520 s geforce and it was really fast on same windows .After upgrade i got this problem .Thats how i see it xD ( i dont know much bout the tune up software that u use)

If you have a slower processor than your brother than that too affects the performance of the hard drive, the access speeds of your ram and processor help with your hard drives read write speeds. So that being said again dont worry about it and if you are that worried then go buy a Solid State Hard Drive for your Operating system to be installed on with that system you would see a hyper jump in performance. The rest of your scores are fine for your system. And thats a average Mechanical Hard Drive score so there is zero concern. The performance will always change as you install and unsinstall, and even reg usage will fill up your registry with stuffs thus lowering your pc's performance over time. So in short dont stress that hard drives score.

thnx alot for ur help
I got an i5 3.2ghz while he has an intel pentium dual core at 2.3 .I got 6gb ram DUal channel at 1066 while he has 4gb at 400mhz (if i am correct) thats why i am worried xD

I see what you are saying, as long as your other scores are better all I can say is dont worry, all you can do is upgrade to a better HDD to improve the low score.

Alirght cool and hopefully it wont be such a delay .Btw i am also experiencing some problems while gaming like 0.5-1 sec freeze while running 60+fps or problems with sound ( ive fully updated my card)

Alright cool so i ll upgrade my hdd and hopefully it will be faster cuz atm i have to wait for every single thing i am doing .Btw i got some problems even while gaming 0.5-1 sec freeze while running at 60+ fps or sound problems and i ve fully updated my gpu

That is prolly everything bottlenecking at your slow HDD. All of your other parts are waiting in line atm for data from your drive, an upgrade will do! :D  hope I was a help.

Hello... your CPU score is too low... something is not set right in your BIO's? my quad Q9550 2.8ghz rates at 7.3 you could have energy effecient setting 'on" in your BIO's... check if the CPU is correctly set for 3.2 GHZ... set Bio's for performance setting? what motherboard brand are you using? and we can help view your setting.... can you take a picture of some of your screens? you should have a 7.5-7.6 CPU score... So you are right something is not set right...

Go into Windows and set for performance settings... you have to tweak some thing these days with Windows... like shut off "core parking"... not let windows do the auto energy things to your CPU... like slowing down your GHZ... do some internet seaches for WINDOWS and BIO's "performance settings"

That will do nothing to lower your scores being as it snaps to full speed at the hint of any load. I have tested this with the Turbo on and off on my CPU and the lowering of your power in your cpu gave me no indication to any performance hits.

Hello... hello...HELLO!!!! His CPU score is too LOW... such are the facts... You got any solutions? That why he came here... not to hear what someone says CAN't BE DONE... get onboard with your solutions, experience's and ANSWERs... thats what we are here to do for them... he notices a problem between two PC's, are you telling him he is wrong? and he needs his head or eyes examined? I'm telling him he needs to look Deeper and his CPU score is Low for the CPU he is using... his CPU Passmark score is 50% higher than the CPU i'm using.

Relax guys no need to argue . One thing i am not sure about is that i got 2 different rams . I mean same brand (kingston) and same model (hyper X) but the one runs at 133mhz and the other one at 1600 . In Bios says that they are dual channeling and next to their Space ( the one 2gb and the other one 4gb) there is a a number 1066 probably mhz i dont know xD .Coud this be a problem as well . I ll check my CPU performance also but in the 2nd pc the cpu performance is lower and he runs much much better

Hello... Please post Motherboard model/number/brand please... current motherboard BIO's version #... and over head photo/view of current installed components... screenshots or photos of your BIO's pages.

1) I want you to disable "Intel speed-step tech" in the Bio's...

if you are using a Ext Graphic Card to your monitor... not the CPU/motherboard Graphics Connector...
2) make sure the IGT is disabled in your BIO's... This will disable your CPU's Onboard Graphic processor from using any CPU power.

Save your setting and Exit.

You cannot use two different size Ram sticks in dual channel mode... placement in which slots also makes a difference... since they are different size, they need to be placed into a different color slots... not the same color... I suggest the 4 gb in the slot closest to your CPU, and the 2 gb, next to it, next slot away from the CPU.

Your memory speed should be the set to the slowest speed of the two... in your case 1333... in your Bios, Look and see if the BIo's auto detected it at 1333 now.

Here is a good article on changing your Windows settings to Performance settings... http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/9090/learning-windows-7-...

ITs an Asrock H61M-S just updated to 1.80 version.
1. Whats the intel speed step tech ?
2. i will check that immediately
When i enter bios says dual channel mode then 4gb ram (1066)
2gb ram(1066)
.After the bios update the computers speed got alot better but i am still facing problems in Games , mostly with sound and some 1 sec freeze while running 70+ fps even 100+ ... What could it be ? I ll try to get a photo tomorrow after the work .Thnx alot for ur interest to my problem
Ps. a Technician who checked my system said that GPU is working well( dont know if he is trolling me )

Hello... All I need is your BIO's screen PICs now... to help you read and find some settings...

Ok you only have 2 memory slots I see... Disable Dual channel mode in BIO's please... save and exit... you must have same memory types/size to run this mode.

It is good you have latest BIO's installed... GJ.

Please RE-RUN Assessment and check your WEI CPU score agian...

Make sure you change Windows Power Plan to Performance...

Please RE-RUN Assessment and check your WEI CPU score agian...

getting 70+ and 100+ FPS is very good for your gtx 650 TI... What Games are you running? please turn down some graphics features to get smoother game play... your Video card is maxing out for sure... here is the ranking of your card VS what you can buy/upgrade to... http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/video_lookup.php?gpu=...

Make sure you have latest realtek driver installed, get from the ASROCK website for your motherboard... your realtek sound chip is good but NOT the top of the line Chip available... it will use CPU power too for game play.
