How to get whatever WEI score you want.

Just read a great post on the sister Vista forum about setting your WEI to whatever you want by altering an XML file. Me thinks that some less trustworthy people could start faking their scores when selling machines - link to post

One thing I have noticed in the Seven equivalent XML file is that if your RAM limit is less than 3GB then your score is always limited to 5.5!!! Shame for guys who have invested in state of the art DDR3 RAM!

Hi I have 4 gigs ddr3 ram and on the vista WEI I get 5.5, and I was never happy with it because I thought my memory should be better than that , having seen others with lesser ram and ddr2 for example getting higher than me ,I was getting 5.9 for everything and 5.5 for memory,now in Windows 7 I get 5.9 the memory being the lowest again.So can you explain what you mean about the ddr3 ram because you lost me a bit I'm sorry,Thanks in advance.

No I didn't, but this is the Seven forum, so thought it would be useful here as not everyone visits the vista forum, me included, it is about 2 weeks since I went on there myself.

What I meant is that DDR3 has a lot more processing power than DDR2 so I would expect higher scores from DDR3 than DDR2. It is strange, that you were only getting RAM score of 5.5 on DDR3 RAM, I get 5.9 on Vista. Are you running 64bit OS'?
