I moved my ram (2x2GB DDR3 @ 1600MHz) from slots 1 & 2 (where the score was 7.5) to slots 3 & 4 where the score went to 5.9. Memory is running in dual channel configuration in both setups. Any idea why the score dropped?
I moved the memory to get a little extra room for the CPU cooler. No noticeable decrease in benchmarks, but somewhat irritating WEI score.
For those people who come here for answers, and who know that WEI is not the be-all and end-all of benchmarks but spent a fair bit of money on a custom machine and would like it to get the score they expect.
I changed two things and i'm assuming one of them brought the memory score back up to 7.6.
1) msconfig--> boot --> advanced options-->maximum memory off
2) BIOS --> DRAM settings --> Ganged mode --> Enabled
Windows will complain that it needs to refresh the WEI, run WEI.
