Windows 7: WEI CPU Frustration

WEI CPU Frustration

So I'm stuck at a 7.8 CPU score with an overclocked (4.00GHz) 980x. The only component that seems subpar is the encoding, e.g.

<WinSPR>
<CpuScore>7.8</CpuScore>

<CPUSubAggScore>7.9</CPUSubAggScore>

<VideoEncodeScore>7.7</VideoEncodeScore>
</WinSPR>

I'm at 7.9s across the board aside from this and it's driving me absolutely nuts. Any suggestions on bumping this crappy 7.7 subscore to a 7.9??

Is it worth risking your rig for a tenth of a meaningless WEI point?

it's actually 0.2 per the subscore and the system is fine for overclocking...

I was looking for specific guidance as to what could boost that subscore

Dude you have a 980x running at 4Gig! I wouldn't lose sleep on that WEI score! Its not like its way off. The highest you can get is a 7.9, you have a 7.8. Come on.

And for what it's worth, I have a 930 running @ 3.5Gig and my WEI score for the processor is 7.6.

I believe WEI should come with a disclaimer:

WEI is not a benchmark. It is an arcane numbering system meant to generally rate hardware performance.

I sincerely doubt one would experience any noticeable, usable performance improvement by raising a CPU rating from 7.7 or 7.8 to 7.9. Perhaps it could be measured on a synthetic benchmark, but in real world performance I doubt it could be felt or experienced. Someone at Microsoft is laughing maniacally at the thought of people obsessing on squeezing .1 improvement on a scale that has no other comparative. Enjoy your incredible machine, and don't chase that eluisve number. You'd be better served chasing increased performance on a CPU benchmarking program than on WEI. Bragging rights are all you could achieve. A Guy

+1 to A Guy too.
But if you want to know, I did see some people with a 7.9 score but I believe they had 12GB of ram or an even higher OC on their 980 cpu.
No guarantee though.

Bragging rights are actually a large part of this And a couple of people from MS are attempting to build 7.9 machines as well, so no...the 0.2 whatevermagicmetricitis doesn't mean anything as far as my perception of the machine

There is a tutorial on a easy was to change the score. It doesn't actually change anything hardware wise, but it gives you the perfect score you want.

I said it before and I'll say it again... manually changing the score is sort of like kissing your sister and calling it a date. Yeah... you kissed a girl... and it was a date, but...

My two cents
