I have a Windows 7 Pro 64 OS. I have an MSI P67 GD65 MB, an intel 510 ssd, 8g 1600 ram and Radeon 5670 graphics. All my components get experience ratings over 7 except CPU, which 5.3. This seems very low to me. Should I be concerned?

WEI is really poor benchmark , don't use it , you can use softwware o benckmark , Passmark, Cinebench 11.5

WEI will use the lowest scoring device for your overall score. You can have the equivalent of a super computer with three 580's and 32GB of memory. If you have a regular HDD or even a RAID-0 of fast HDD's, it'll use the HDD score as your system score.

As already stated by all others,
You don't need to be concerned about it. WEI scores, doesn't really matter.
Did you try re-taking the test ?

something is up. use a program called CPU-Z to make sure your 2600k is running at its appropriate speeds at idle/load.

Yep. Same result. Curious. System seems to run very quickly.

Could be a problem with the WEI itself.
Anyways, you won't need to pay much attention to that, as it just tests it and it doesn't affect it in anyways with regards to performance.

Like they're saying, run a different benchmark.

Your response was helpful. I downloaded and tried the program, and it reassured me that the cpu was running up to specs. Having done that I'm inclined to agree with majority of responses, which essentially denigrate the contribution of the Windows score.

Thanks
