The gist of this thread is that the WEI scores may be useless because Microsoft is changing the scale from build to build.

In what way is your system not performing as you think it should?

Suppose the gas gauge in your car reads 4000 cc remaining.

You park the car and go to sleep. While you are asleep, someone changes your gas gauge. You go out to the car the next morning. The gas gauge says you have 4 liters of gas.

How much gas did you lose?

You went from 4000 to 4 on the gauge.

You lost no gas. You can drive as far with 4 liters as you can with 4000 cc of gas.

Windows 7 x64 Ultimate RTM

Low RAM score problem solved...actually the concept is that if your usable Ram is less than 4GB...then win 7 64 bit limits score to 5.9 irrespective of the any ram you use(ddr3 or ddr2 etc)...

I disabled my onboard graphics from "BIOS and not from Device manager" which solved the my usable ram is 4094 MB as shown in task manager and i have regained my original rating ... as it was in win 7 32 bit...
Thanks for your support dude. . . .

The WEI is just one more point of reference.

To the THREAD,
You use a X58 chipset with mobo, it uses QPI no? Theres a relationship between ram MHz and cpu MHz. If you just chose to set cpu at 3.2MHz, then you also adjusted the ram. Go into BIOS and look at all the current settings.
I too use an X58, as well as 1333 MHz ram.
cpu multiplier=21
ram ratio 8/2
This gives me a cpu at 3.8MHz and ram at 1466MHz. stable
WEI memory subscore 7.8

At cmd prompt type>winsat mem.
