Windows 7: Show Us Your WEI

Ram over 1600 mhz is usually 7.9, I guess maybe the problem is amount, how much do you have? I've never seen 4gb+ of 1600mhz+ NOT get 7.9, so that's kind of weird if you do have 4 gigs or more. I don't know if 2 intels in r0 would get you 7.9 but probably close, though sometimes oddly it doesn't do much. And for cpu even 4.5ghz or more 920 only gets 7.7ish. My suggestion to you? Use your computer. It's awesome. I drive myself crazy tweaking trying to get the most out of my components, then I get bummed if I don't get the number I want from the benchmark, then I go open some big program like photoshop or some other and it opens instantly and I remember "oh yeah my computer is pretty badass afterall".

Update the firmware on your SSD, Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver, and make sure AHCI is set in BIOS. Also what is your ICH or PCH?

I got a 7.6 with my X25-V G2 on ICH9M-E/M with 9.6.0.1014 RST drivers and 2CV102HB firmware (mines a version behind which doesn't support TRIM I believe) so your X25-M G2 should get better scores.

Setting AHCI on my board increases boot time by about 10 seconds. Therefore I have opted to stick with IDE mode as the overall increase in speed with ACHI isn't worth the extra boot time.

Are you using AMD's or Microsoft's AHCI driver?

I've always found this argument silly, how many times in a day could you possibly be rebooting? You want your computer to be the fastest when you're using it, a slight delay when booting is nothing. The majority of the time spent with the computer is the part that needs speeding up, boot-up is a tiny fraction of overall time spent on/with the pc. A few seconds more or less seems unimportant, this is obviously all just my opinion.

Hardware update!

AMDs
I would use Microsoft's driver. AMD has some pretty bad AHCI/RAID drivers last I heard: AMD's 785G integrated graphics chipset - The Tech Report - Page 8
