The problem is, I am getting very low benchmark scores on everything I try. My system is scoring lower than most comparison systems in each benchmarking utility.
PCMark07 is giving me far less than somebody with nearly identical specs (they had less RAM)
SisSoft Sandra is giving me 1009 as an overall combined score
Passmark is giving me around 3800 (My laptop scores over 4000 and it uses only integrated graphics and a much lower CPU)
I have tried everything I know, including :
Latest drivers for everything
Enabling and disabling Virtu MVP
Checked for Direct X updates
Updated windows fully
I am at a real loss here and I am hoping you guys might be able to point out what might be wrong.
Any info you need I can provide as soon as possible.
Your help on this would be extremely well appreciated.
Hi and thank you both for the replies.
The bios version I am using is F8 which is the latest for the g1 sniper.
The SSD is definately in ACHI mode but there are other settings which are not explained , like xHCI (or similar) which are all set to "auto". Somehow, when building the machine, I put the SSD on the 2nd SATA III port and the regular HDD on the 1st SATA III port. Although I am booting from the SSD.
Windows power options are set to High performance. Nothing really has large draw. Firefox is using 166mb, other than that, CPU usage is 0 - 5 on and off on different processes (no more than usual).
