I7 930 WEI?

Hello,
I'm about to buy a i7 930 and plan to overclock it to around 3.2

I was just wondering but what would the windows experience index JUST FOR THE CPU be? does not include graphics HDDs etc.

I know this question has a lot of factors like mb, ram, etc. but with a i7 930 ~ 3.2ghz and 8 cas latency ram what would the resulting WEI be?

Thanks

I believe my i7-920 gets a 7.6 or 7.8 roughly on the WEI, with a mild overtook

Hey thanks
7.6-8 is much more than I expected :) 
I've read a lot of ur posts and articles...really helpful btw
So I'm guessing you have a pretty high end system
one more question about WEI, do you know what gpus similar to the gts 460 will get? And similar cards such as ATI 5770?
Just trying to get a good picture before I start my build
Thanks

My ATI 5750 gets a 7.2 with an Athlon II X3 440 unlocked and now I get a 7.4 WEI with a Phenom II X4 955 @ 3.6 GHz. Keep in mind that's with 2 5750's in crossfire but I'm pretty sure I had the same results with one 5750 because the WEI only uses one graphics card. Anyone else feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

my i7 930 got at 7.6 so far at 3.72GHz...my GTX 480 got 7.8 in WEI....my corsair 1333MHz RAM got at 7.6 only...^_~

Just checked an my i7-930 with stock cooler is shown at 7.5 on the WEI.

I am curious at some of the wie numbers.. they don't seem to make sense... my i7 930 running at 4.3 gets 7.7, memory gets 7.9, 5870 gets 7.8 and of course my raid 0 striped to 3 hd gets 5.9 lol just seems that wie is inconsistent with hardware

i7 930 at 4.3 is really high, 7.7 is a bit low but there's no way to get to a full 7.9 w/o a core i7 extreme edition. Those processors hit 7.9 at 4ghz (barely)

For almost every high end system the HDDs are a bottleneck, thats why for many of my friends w/ i7's their lowest subscore is always the HDDs

Soon, people are definitely going to invest in SSDs, I know I am as soon as the price drops to less than $2/GB for (noncrappy) SSDs

well thanks for the comment on the 4.3.. just a shame I am on the lowest QPI multi at 36 ( ~7.8 Ghz ) i wanted to get the memory controller to 3800 but I can't seem to keep her stable.

as for ssd's I want one bad.. lol I am waiting for trim support in raid. and for 500GB drives to hit the 300 dollar mark I will pay 3-500 for 500GB and get ~ 220-300MB/s ( I hate that steam makes you install all games to one drive) that is my personal sweet spot. nothing else to upgrade to except maybe liquid cooling or phase change lol.

Once my rig is done, i am putting money into a stroker kit and trwin turbos for my truck lol

My GTX 460 768 superclock got a 7.3 on WEI. But it was glitchy and had artifacts so i RMA'ed it. Plus i was only using a 2.2ghz low end 2 core cpu.

I got a very strange WEI score. I mean, it seems too good to be true.

I barely have an Athlon x4 640, no o/c whatsoever and crappy kingston value RAM on a fairly mainstream Gigabyte board. I have my good old 8800GT still working and a very low profile 550W PS from Coolermaster. Been using a very old SATA Seagate hard drive, with only 120GB for the OS. The disk must be about 4 yrs old, at least.

I clean-installed W7-64 Ultimate a couple of days ago and inexplicably, I'm getting a 6.9 overall score (being the GPU the lowest score of them all). With my old Athlon 64 X2, the hard drive didn't go over 5.3 (using the very same w7 copy i used this time). Right now, it's 7.1! 7.1 for an old SATA hard drive is just not right. I mean, it's pretty cool, but can't be right.

Last week I assembled a big Corei7-930 for a friend of fine, with 6gigs of nice ram, a decent card and a brand new SATA II - 7200RPM 1TB hard drive. I's stuck on a 5.9 score because of the HD, of course, which seemed "normal" to me.

But, crap, I spent about 30% of the money in my upgrade and have a full more point (5.9 vs. 6.9) with EXACTLY the same w7 version, etc.

Any explanations? Could something be wrong with my buddy's system?

Physical hard drives aren't supposed to get over 5.9 xD

My score is silly really:

CPU: 7.1
RAM: 7.1
Aero GPU: 6.8
Gaming GPU: 6.8
HDD: 5.9

Note to everyone: don't base anything on the WEI. It's really not an accurate measure pf performance. Synthetic benchmarks often don't mean a lot in the real world but something like a PCMark Vantage score would be far more accurate than a WEI score.

My i7-930 (OC to 3.5GHz) gets a 7.6 WEI and my 5770 gets 7.5 with Catalyst 10.12
Processor: 7.6
RAM: 7.9 (Corsair XMS3 6GB DDR3 1600 running @1674MHz)
Graphics: 7.5 (for both; gpu OC to 940/1350)
HDD: 5.9 XP (Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB, it's freaking top of the line 1TB lol)

Mechanical HDD's will top out at 5.9 in the WEI. It's hard to compare SSD's to HDD's though with the WEI.

The graphics are 7.9, 7.9, 7.9 --- BUT the CPU and Memory are still 7.5!!

This is because I don't overclock, then again, I did give thought to pulling the i7 930 out, and dropping the i7 990X in, and moving up to the GTX 960, but figure for better dollar-stretching--could just buy three 660i cards in SLI and still get 4032 cores @ 192-bit bandwidth; not bad for about the same price...but the heat and electrical pull would be nasty!

So in the end, I will stick with what I just built, and wait a few weeks.

Perhaps in a year or two the GTX 960 will be eclipsed by another quantum leap from above, and yet another $1,000.00 card will fall from Nvidia "Eve", and will carry on it's pillowed supported boxes within boxes yet more cores of ADOBE PREMIERE CRUNCHING GOODNESS!

Yet then, Microsoft will then make the WEI move to 9.9!

WEI is crap and is not an actual indicator of performance. Just ignore it and let an old thread die.
