Hi everyone,

I build a System with the FX-6300 on an ASRock 970 Extreme4 Board and I'm running Windows 7 64 bit.
On the Windows 7 performance index I get a CPU score of 7.4 - whereas the score of graphics and RAM is on 7.8.
On 3DMark 11 I get an Psysics score (which I assume is an indicator for the performance of the CPU) of 5353.

So, is my FX-6300 underperforming? Forgot I some important settings in the BIOS or in Windows? I installed the Bulldozer patches KB2645594 and KB2646060. I enabled and disabled the AMD Turbo Mode, I enabled and disabled C6 state - and no big difference (I got the best result without AMD Turbo).

Thanks for any advice and a happy new year 2013!

I'm currently downloading 3DMark 11 to test my FX-6100, will edit this post in a few minutes with the results, let's compare.. lol :) 
In my Windows performance index my FX-6100 is rated 7.3 on stock settings, Corsair 8Gb kit dual channel is 7.5..

Don't worry about synthetic scores, worry about how you perform in games. Synthetic scores really mean nothing in the real world.
