Cool its pretty nice. It is very fast. But I am surprised my ram scores so low. Also I know this is random but are virtual cores just as good as real cores?

Let me ask something.

My MOBO has USB 3.0 ports, but there's nothing nowadays that can use all that bandwidth, or is there?

5gbps is a little too much, most trasnfers here are 100MB/s at most.

There is a little more to usb3 than just speeds, here's a little info I dragged off the net-

A number of changes have been implemented in USB 3.0 to satisfy the increased demands of external devices. Here is a quick USB technology overview:

Transfer Rate
This new SuperSpeed interface provides realistic transfer rates of around 3,200 Mbits/s or 3.2 Gbits/s. The theoretical top signaling rate is at 4.8 Gbits/s.

Data Transfer
USB 3.0 introduces full duplex data transfer. Two of five lanes are reserved for transmitting data, while another pair is dedicated to receiving data, meaning that USB 3.0 can read and write data simultaneously at full speed. Previous USB specifications did not support bi-directional data transfer.

Power
The unit load has been increased to 150 mA and a configured device can draw up to six unit loads, which adds up to 900 mA. This exceeds USB 2.0 by 80% and leads to faster recharging or powering of more than four devices from a single hub. In addition, the minimum device operating voltage was dropped from 4.4 V to 4 V, which saves energy.

Power Management
USB 3.0 suspends device polling, which is replaced by interrupt-driven protocol. As a result, idle devices won’t experience a power drain since a signal from the device is required to initiate data transfer. With USB 2.0 the host controller used to look for active transfers, slowly draining power. Briefly, USB 3.0 supports idle, sleep, and suspend states, as well as link-, device-, and function-level power management (Wikipedia).

Thanks for the info.

But I think there won't be any devices transfering at 4.8gbps anytime soon.

I'm happy with this . Could always be a lot better, but hopefully I'll manage to keep my wallet shut apart from my top priority upgrades to it

I've always admired people who were happy with their computer. They have much more money than I do.
