Should I be concerned about this score?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone, got a question about my windows experience index score. Basically my initial WEI score for my Crucial M4 64GB SSD was 7.7 or 7.8, then I re-ran the test after overclocking my CPU and while the other stuff went up, the SSD score dropped all the way to 5.9! After running crystalmark, my numbers seem alright from what I can tell so I'm thinking it may be a fluke? I've re-ran the test after removing my HDD and deleting my old scores and still get the same score. AHCI mode is enabled, IRST is running. Am I driving myself nuts over a score for nothing, or have a missed a tweak to get her back up to speed?

WEI is messing up, everything is fine with the drive.

You said you deleted the scores, did you do that like this?

Fix W.E.I. scores reporting wrong:
  1. Go to C:\Windows\Performance\WinSAT and delete the winsat.txt
  2. Then go to C:\Windows\Performance\WinSAT\DataStore and delete all the files in there.
  3. Now restart W.E.I.

Maybe uninstall and reinstall the Intel SATA driver?

is the SSD plugged into the very first port?

Did not know about the winsat.txt, I only saw to delete the stuff in DataStore. I'll give that a try next. I'm not entirely sure which port would be considered the first, the top or the bottom? I only use one other HDD so I just plugged them both into the two 6gbps ports and disabled my others in the bios. I didn't know there would be a difference in the ports. I'll try this after I get through a gaming session and post back.

Thanks.

Alright after doing all of the above, and trying it on both 6gbps ports (crystaldisk shows typical speeds for my drive so the ports aren't bad) it still gives me the 5.9 score. I know the test is meaningless, I just wanna know what's causing it to report wrong. Makes me think somethin' is up.
