    My ram is 1.5V well below the 1.65V strict limit, wanted to be safe, not sorry.

    And well yeah gaming, who cares :)

    But the cores thing, I wasn't saying it should necessarily, just that it doesn't really make sense that I would end up with a lower score. I figured maybe it would be the same.

    You overclocked your CPU, that increases the bus speed for your CPU which will affect your score in other ways besides just the base speed. I highly doubt your CPU not overclocked would yield such an impressive result.

    I am watching my temps closely and might decide to OC mine just a bit, but really that would be dumb as there is no reason to do it.

    Also I have a feeling that WEI does not utilize hyperthreading in its scoring module, so just like how a few applications sometimes perform better on non hyperthreaded cpu's ... this may also be a case like that.

    I should see what score I get when I overclock my E8500 to 4.5Ghz with a FSB of 2000Mhz, think I might try it after I finish doing this defrag.

    Quite possibly because the motherboard is using its default FSB whereas the OC'd CPU is using a much higher FSB and voltage?

    Then again I really cannot understand the rating system - it shows my dual GTX 260s at 6.0 for gaming - WTF? Then it also shows my system optimized RAM at 5.7 (Vista kept it at 5.9) and my CPU at 6.7 - and mine is a 6600 OC'd to 3.21 GHz with an FSB of 357 (1428 QDR), so....

    The dual GTX 260s (SLI'd or not) giving me a 6.0 for gaming is just ... mind boggling.

    I'm thinking about disabling HT and running it again just for comparison measures.

    I do not have a FSB silly :P

    Whad did you expect from the 260s? Higher? Lower? I don't get it.

    My HD 4870 gives me only a 7.2 for gaming But I don't game, so I will just live with it. I went cheap and didn't get the X2

    Right - QPI - but yours is fixed, and quite possibly the OS does not have the mechanisms in place to recognize and benchmark the QPI-enabled architecture.

    And, yes, dammit, I have a *pair* of 260s - it should count for something! Not only that, but I did my WEI when it was SLI'd and when it was not - no change.

    if i remember correctly the tests are simple Direct 9 and 10 tests
    can you see if the scores change higher or lower with one....
    i remember an article on PC magazine that if your game isnt optimized for SLI or Crossfire it can actually be a hindrance i believe it has to do with the drivers having to work more to make it possible to display it...
    since this is a simple test i believe this is not optimized for SLI
    but hey that article was from 2003...
    so i can be wrong

    yes you are correct disabling HT should give better perfomance...
    as this is a simple test...
    well here this is a better explanation

    It has six execution units capable of executing three memory operations and three calculation operations. If the execution engine can’t find sufficient parallelism of instructions to take advantage of them all, “bubbles”—lost cycles—occur in the pipeline.
    This approach can be extremely effective when the two threads are executing tasks that are highly separate. On the other hand, two threads involving intensive calculation, for example, will only increase the pressure on the same calculating units, putting them in competition with each other for access to the cache. It goes without saying that SMT is of no interest in this type of situation, and can even negatively impact performance.

    CPU and Ram have gone up from 6801... must be the overclock, or 6956 is more generous

    It's currently just a mild overclock from 2.8 to 3.2, so nothing extreme

    print view still shows it @ 2.8 stock
