I always say: If it does what you need it to, there is no need to change :D

Managed to run the WEI, not sure what I did but it's working now after refusing to complete before.   

CPU score is a little lower than I was expecting.
Memory score is better than I thought it would be.
Graphics card score has dropped .1 in win 8 compared to win 7
SSD score is exactly the same on SATA 3 as SATA 2

7.6 is certainly nothing to sneeze at, Data. Heck, I'd be happy with everything in the low to mid 6's. :)

Yeah I am happy with 7.6  :)

If you lived near me I would give you my old rig Dave, well I say give, probably at a bargain price  ;)

I got to say I was expecting the SSD score to improve a little being on SATA 3 now but in reality it's the same and yes I do have the SATA 3 drivers installed and working and the SSD is reporting as being in SATA 3 6GB mode.

QuoteSSD score is exactly the same on SATA 3 as SATA 2
That is indeed odd  :scratch-head:
Nice score though nevertheless  :thumbsup:

Data

I thought it might be the SATA cable not being up to spec so I did a bit of research on them and it would seem that you can use any SATA cable for SATA 3, even an old SATA 1 cable.

Is Your SATA Cable Slowing Down Your Data Transfers?


Having said that I will change the cable, just in case  :D

sybershot

I Hope the new cable improves your score, from what I read a while back only the shielding material is different between the different version cables. Though merit has to be given to maximum pc's findings.

Data

I tried a SATA 3 verified lead but am still getting 7.8 from the SSD, looks like that's all you can get out of an OCZ Agility 3.

My memory score has gone up from 8.1 to 8.2 for some reason, I haven't tweaked it since the last WEI test, must be a borderline case of around 8.1 and a half  :-\

So I better post a pic of it, I know you guys like to see my gloating  :P

sybershot

WEI getting better, with no changes except sata cable  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
Sorry it did not improve drive scores though.

Data

No need to be sorry Syber, that SSD score will improve when I get my second SSD and RAID them  :P

I didn't expect the score to be as fast as your newer Vertex 4 SSD, you hold the record for SSD on this site  :worship:

But I do believe I have the record for the highest single score of 8.2 for my memory.  ;D

I'm not worthy of the  :worship: I only got that score due to needing a new drive desperately. However your memory score, that is something to  :worship:  over  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Mostly looking forward to your memory score Dave, quad channel is going to score something like 8.8 in windows 8, I think.

Saying that I see you have a windows 7 disk on your wish list, so maybe only 7.9 if you stick to win 7.

Will be interesting to see the scores from a LGA2011 rig.

DaveMorton

The Win 7 is a "just in case" thing, since I'm still pretty much "on the fence" about Windows 8. Not a big fan of Metro (whatever they're calling it), but there are other things in 8 that I did like, so...
