Hello,

I have a Intel i7 920 2.67 my index score is only coming back with 3.5 What is causing it to be so low?

I assume that 3.5 is the index score of the entire pc. The reason for this is that the index score for the entire pc is actually the lowest index score from amongst the other components (Graphics, RAM, HDD, etc). In most cases, it is the index score of the HDD, since it is the slowest performing device of the entire PC.

In my case, all my indices are over 7.3 except for the HDD which is at 5.9 and this brings down my overall index to 5.9 - my HDD is Seagate ST31000528AS.

The index score is broken down:

Processor 3.5
memory 6.6
graphics 7.5
hard disk 5.9

I was reading other peoples post tahat said there processors were getting 7's for the same chip. I was wondering why I am getting only 3.5 which is causing my games to lag very badly. Thanks for the help.

Here are the details of my scores:

1. Processor (Intel i-7 920) 7.4
2. Memory (RAM) 7.8
3. Graphics (GTX-275) 7.3
4. Gaming Graphics 7.3
5. Primary Hard Disk 5.9

System overall 5.9

On reading about this further I found this: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/Window...

This might shed some light to the situation

That's surprising. Ideally you should get 7 + for the processor.
In the BIOS, have you enabled all the cores? Also check if HT is on. Check your device manager for the number of cores shown.

The device manager shows 8 cores. Don't know where to look to see if HT is turned on.

If device manager is showing 8 cpus, then HT is on (4 real+ 4 virtual cores).

About your situation, download cpuz and check the frequency of your cpu. Try to load it with something like prime95 and see if frequency goes up from SpeedStep base frequency. If it doesn't, that may be the reason.

Try running SiSoft Sandra and check performance

This has been solved. It turns out the problem was a bad motherboard. Thanks
