AMD phenom II x4 955 cpu @3.8 oc'd
OCZ 1600 ddr3 @ 8 gb
ASRock M3A770DE AM3 mobo
Western Digital 750gb hard drive
Corsair tx 750 watt psu
XFX HD 4890 gpu
2 x Hp dvd1270 dvd drives
Coolit Eco ALC cpu cooler w/120 x 38 mm Scythe Kazemaster fan
with this setup my cpu rate a 7.4
ram memory rate a 7.7
gpu rates a 7.6 on both categories
and last but not least; my WD black Edition drive rates 7.5?! My understanding is that this is not possible and should rate 5.9 like it used to. The only thing I did different was to use AHCI settings in the bios.
Can someone tell me what I should do? How do I make the pc read scores correctly?
Thanks for the response, I am just hoping that there is not something wrong with my rig and hopeful that a more experienced person could give some insight.
I really like the computer and want to avoid any further issues. Recently it "caught" a virus and I could not get rid of it so I used a D.O.D. rated hard disc eraser/wiper called something like "boot and nuke" to clean the drive and now it reads this rating differently.
I am a grad student and do not wish to buy another pc any time soon
