That's just 1 64 gb Crucial Real C300 SSD drive sata III
Agreed that's a very nice score

That should be higher, have you changed any settings?

Nope! and it is reported high in Everest benchmarks, I am running dual monitors and did not stop any services or background sources before I ran the test, I'm not really fussed about it as I don't think it has much relevance to the real world.

UPDATE: I don't know how windows does it's measurements, but just to put my mind at ease I have run 3 different CPU benchmarks, PassMark, CPU Speed and Cinebench, in all cases the i7 950 was up there with it's peers and overall system is very high due to the Corsair memory I run.

As long as it's running well and the other benchmarks are in the correct range, I wouldn't worry about it.

WEI seems to give low scores sometimes for no apparent reason.
It's not the most accurate benchmark by any stretch of the imagination.

Enjoy your system, nice rig

Good lord. In the thumbnail of your scores, I could have sworn it said 32 GB of RAM.

Even 12 Gb is over kill but with these new boards and tri channel memory you have to go up in quantities of 3 or it falls back to dual channel. I started at 6 Gb and found at times I got memory warnings, these were 3 x 2GB and putting in 3 x 1 Gb would have spoilt the equation so went for another 3 x 2 Gb.

So far I have not seen mem usage above 5 Gb! nor any further warnings! I don't run a swap file because I have an SSD as my primary OS.

Ya once you go SSD theres no going back, I wish that I could have afforded a 256gb but people in Hell want ice water and there was just no way to write that check. But when the 64gb went on sale I was all over it. With luck in a year or more the larger drives will be replaced with even larger and they'll fall in price and I'll move the 64 to my laptop. I'm just amazed with it's WEI performance increase.....cool
