Is my A-3870 Defective?

February 2, 2013 3:10:51 PM

Hi, i recently bought an Acer AX-3470 with 8 gigs of RAM and an A6-3620 APU with HD 6530D integrated graphics. Looking for a modest increase in performance but limited to the FM1 socket, I bought the A8-3870 CPU 3.0 Ghz with 6550D graphics. I ran a benchmark test with AMD's overdrive and scored @ 4700+ while OC'd to 3.2 Ghz...

I'm pretty pissed since my boss has the same model computer as me but one level below (6 gigs of RAM with the stock A6-3620 APU 2.2 Ghz) and after running a benchmark test on his computer it scored a 6200+ not OC'd at all...

- He's running Windows 7 and I'm on Windows 8.
- My CPU was pre-used, I'm thinking it's defective.
- Windows Experience Index scores me higher in both Graphics catagories.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! Thanks guys.
