SSD only getting a 5.9 on the WEI?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I have my OS installed on an OCZ vertex 60gb SSD but in Windows Experience Index its only showing a 5.9. That seems like a HDD score?
Is there any reason it would be testing my HDD instead of my SSD and how to fix this?

Make sure you're connected in ACHI mode. You will have to set that through the BIOS and possibly a regedit. I was able to do this without needing to regedit.

Here's a step by step:

Sounds like you're running in IDE mode.

Run something like CrystalDiskMark and compare results with others. WEI is absolutely trash and far from accurate.

Also I hope you updated firmware on the SSD. It's incredibly important to keep SSD's firmware up to date, they usually offer rather large performance improvements.

SATA II versus SATA III maybe?

My Intel X25-M 160GB gives me a 7.7 on the WEI scores.

Gave me a 7.1 in IDE mode (changed in bios just to compare)

Hope that helps gauge what you should be getting. I would assume any decent sata III ssd will give you a solid 7.9 on the WEI.

Drive health? TRIM? AHCI? Align the drive? Follow Sean's SSD setup guide? (all these things I am sure others have mentioned already)

WEI sucks as a performance analysis. use something like crystal disk benchmark.

But you are only using a vertex which is sata 2 btw. not sata 3.

I had the same problem with an Intel 320 series 80 gig SSD. AHCI was enabled in BIOS and my drivers and windows configuration were all in order. I even removed my other 3 drives from my system to help narrow down the issue. I decided to check the log file 2012-10-24 22.55.23.417 Disk.Assessment (Recent).WinSAT.xml located in c:\windows\performance\winsat\datastore. This line jumped out at me - Responsiveness Reason="UnableToAssess" Kind="Cap">TRUE /Responsiveness. So I googled that and found another, more intelligent person (Frank Tovar's Blog) had determined that WEI requires a 1 gig contiguous block of free space to complete or it dumps you a 5.9 rating. To get this free space you have to defragment the drive or uninstall software then defrag until you have that 1 gig to get anything close to an accurate assessment. He recommended a freeware defrag utility which I used. I ran the command line version 3-4 passes until nothing more could be moved and re-ran WEI. Now after spending 5 hours of trying to get this thing to give me my WEI of 7.4, I have to wonder if it was worth all of the hell. I'd say not. So, if your drive gives expected performance there is no reason to give two craps about the WEI rating. If you really need to know if your drive is performing well, there are better, more accurate benchmarks for your drive's performance.
