Windows 7: Inconsistent WEI

W7 Ult x64 and W8 Pro x64
Inconsistent WEI

I have two W7x64s installed on the same machine but each OS is installed on its own separate physical hard drive. The WEI for #1 OS is 6.8/7.4/6.0/6.0/5.9 while that for #2 is 6.9/7.4/7.4/7.4/5.9.
I wonder why there are so much difference between the two for the graphic performances.
The two HDDs are not the same model but are very similar. The one for #1 OS is HitachiHDE721010SLA330 and another for #2 is Hitachi HDS721010CLA332. Both are 1TB/7200rpm/32MB but the second one is newer model.
Has the performance of the HDD anything to do with the graphic performance?

The second is better although that is high. My gaming rig received 6.5/7.4/7.6/7.6/5.9.

Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit)
bit similar issue

I have a bit similar issue, but the difference is not that big. The motherboard of my notebook has been recently replaced (due to a malfunction in the integrated card reader) with a similar one (at least in theory they were similar), and after the change the WEI scores of my graphics performance decreased. Previously, the WEI of my desktop/gaming performance were 6.7/6.7 and now they are 6.6/6.6 on the same hardware. I re-run the assessment a few times, but I always got the same scores. Ok, its not a big difference, but still a bit disturbing.

Very inconsistent BSOD System_Service_Exception
I am running Windows 7 Ultimate x64 and I keep getting a random BSOD error. It happens quite often but never after any recognizable action. I do have to say it tends to happen most often while streaming Netflix. I have checked all of my drivers for updates (at least I think I have) and I still...

Windows 7 Search is Inconsistent
I have had issues with Windows 7 and Vista search since I started using them. I am hoping someone can tell me what I am doing wrong. If I search in non-indexed locations for a file that I know is in that location or its subdirectories somewhere, why does it sometimes never show up? Here is an...

Inconsistent WOW fps from 75 to 3 and back
My fps can range from 50 to 75 then drop to 3 or 4. It will stay that way for awhile then back to normal. This can happen in the Barrens or in a heavy battle at Wintergrasp. I am not sure if it is Windows 7, the Nvidia 9100 graphics, or both. Could the low dedicated video memory of 256MB be the...
