windows experience index lowered graphic score but have same gpu?

i have just put in new ram due to a faulty ram causing bsod and over clocked cpu again to how i use to have it now with the bsod issue being over. a silly question maybe but i was wondering how come my windows experience when from 7.9 to 7.5 in graphic section yet ive not changed the gpu ? just curious but all is working fine.

also on a side question in control panel>system it shows processor being 4.7hz but it is oc to 5.1 and with turbo on 5.4 ghz. how come windows does not show the true processor speed as stated in bios?

The Windows Experience Index doesn't mean very much. There have been cases where the numbers differ on identical systems. The exact method used to calculate the numbers has never been documented.

The CPU speed shown in the control panel is the nominal speed rating read from the CPU itself. This cannot be changed and has nothing to do with the actual clock rate of the CPU. With most modern CPUs the actual clock rate will vary according to need.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64, & Mac OS X 10.9.2

it rates my SSD's as 5.5.. yet 550MB/s is faster than my mechanical storage drive which gets rated 7.4..

Also my GTX 770 scores lower than my previous HD6950 despite there being a huge difference in performance.

I wouldnt worry about it, windows has scrapped its games for windows brand and they were the only games to use the rating system.
