Windows 7: Lower performance indice with a new motherboard with I5 and DDR3 ram

Lower performance indice with a new motherboard with I5 and DDR3 ram

Hello


I installed a new I5 motherboard with DDR3 ram. My previous board had a quad Q6600 with DDR2

My past performance was 7.1, now I got a 5.9. Strange is the lower indice is from my SSD drive that came from 7.2 to 5.9.

Could it be that Windows is evaluationg a new install hard drive instead of the SSD drive?

I tought that I would get a much better output than my previous Asus motherboard @2.4 MHZ. If I regain the same result with my SSD, the Indice will jump to 7.2 while I had 7.1 with my previous instalation

Maybe I need some tweeking

If you're caching data with the SSD and using the Hard drive, it could be because the SSD sata plug is vined by the system.

Might looks like this: HDD with Sata controller 6Gb/s and the SSD Controler reduced to Sata 3Gb/s instead of Sata 6Gb/s. Assuming you're on RAID.

You can check whenever in the Intel Rapid Technology Control Panel what it says about the Sata controler.

Sorry, no deep technical issues discuss here by me.

Hello and thanks for the reply

Vined???

How do I check? I did not installed my HD to be on RAID. It was an old HD that I had previoulsy to my SSD instalation. I read that it is not a good idea to have the data and the system on the new SSD, so I wanted to separate them

I don't see Intel Rapid Technology in my system ?

Have a good day

Humm,

Vined is like slowing.

Though you was using the Hard Drive for the OS and the SSD for boosting the system.

Sorry, you're on: JMicron JMB36X(JMB363) Controller Driver, not the Intel SRT

There's tutorials here to optimize Windows 7 on SSD Drives: Tutorials

Hardware & Drivers

You could unplug the data drive and boot with the SSD , and try again evaluating your WEI Score?

Do more partitions = lower performance?
As the title says, if you have more partitions, does that affect the performance of the computer/hard drive? Thanks in advance!
