Why times two?

Are you adjusting for DDR?

I have the same SSD you have. It should look more like this.

Well I put it in AHCI

Edit. I noticed it say system32. Does having a 64 bit OS and CPU have anything to do with it?
Should it be System 64 instead?

EDIT 2: I re-ran the assessment and have updated the WEI. Better than before by a mile as far as I am concerened. Thank you to all those who helped, much appreciated.
Should I start a Separate thread to resolve the issue just keep posting here?

After you built the computer, on first start up you should have gone straight to bios. Can you remember exactly what you did and what you set? Did you set 'optimized defaults? Is turbo enabled and what is the multiplier for turbo mode? If you can take pictures showing the Vcore, turbo mode Intel speed step and all of the settings, please post them. It appears you have a wrong setting in bios, a bad CPU or a bad motherboard. Your CPU should get a 7.5-7.6 in WEI, and your raphics card should get 7.9.

I bought this PC from a friend. It was prebuilt I think. So I didn't set the settings but i'll go into the bios and look. But yes I think he said when he got it he flashed the bios and set it to optimized defaults because it kept turning itself off. Where can I find turbo boost?

I'm not familar with Gigabyte bios settings. But you can usually find it in a section of bios usually called overclocking or advanced settings. It is the section where you overclock the CPU, but is also where the important settings are. My board, if I put a USB drive in; on any page I'm on I can push F12 and it will put a picture of that bios page on the USB. I would think yours has something similar.
