VERY respectable scores for Win 7. Nice! :)

I have got the i5 overclocked to 3.9Ghz now and the memory is at 1680Mhz, computer is stable and cool. 

DaveMorton

Now bear in mind that I'm not quite done "tweaking" everything, and this is just a preliminary score:

nice score, but you need to bring up that cpu asap lol  :P
Congrats on getting the system built and that all is working well  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Data

Very nice score there Dave, I particularly like the graphics @ 7.9, I wonder just how much higher the score would have gone if it were aloud to go higher than 7.9, I have a feeling it will be way over with those two beautiful cards.

I'm truly impressed and happy for you  :thumbsup:   :)

Freddy

Very nice and happy for you Dave.  8) :D

And yes that GPU score must really be higher because I think mine is 7.9...I forget.

Data

Come come now Freddy, your graphics score is 7.8, (I'm a geek and remember these things  ;) ) our Dave holds the record by maxing out the score :) 

Freddy

Ahh well I wasn't far out...hehe  ;D

The new box has no network connectivity at the moment because I don't have a network cable that's long enough to reach it, but I'm hoping to remedy that today.

I tried to install Windows 8 first, but the USB drive that I had created isn't an install drive, but a recovery drive. I even tried using a freshly downloaded Win 8 setup from a different thumb drive, but that also requires an internet connection, so that was a bust, too. I think I'll probably put Windows 8 on the system, and reserve Win 7 for use on a VM.

I also have to figure out how I'm going to transfer the info from the IDE HDD's on the old box to the new system, so there are still plenty of challenges ahead. :)

That is a lot of data to be moving around again, I hope all transfers smoothly.

Way to go Dave, great WEI score there. You have endured a great deal of pain and anguish to get here, so you enjoy your bragging rights for as long as they last. Well cool.  :thumbsup:
It WILL be fine !...

DaveMorton

Still no overclocking, but a change to the OS:

Very impressive over all WEI, nice indeed.  8)

I can't help but think you are going to have to go some to beat my memory score of 8.2 with my £30 dual channel RAM, sorry, had to point that out  :P

sybershot

nice score there Dave  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

edit, just thought something is not right there!!!! your ssd should be 8.1 or higher  :scratch-head:

sybershot

here is my new rigs score

edit: after I set gpu to use nvidia surround, my gpu score dropped going from 8.1 to 8.0
so now all my scores are 8.0
