New computer builder needs immediate help! - Page 4

I am still here, but confused even more. So what should I do to fix the scores? For some reason, last night I got a score of 17k. But running it again today in the morning I received a 14k, still up from the 10k I had yesterday, but below the 17k I thought was expected.

The weird readouts for the GPU suggest a possible borked Windows install.

i7s can sometimes look like their cores aren't all enabled, as well.
go to the link there, go to the bios to make sure the ram is set to what it is rated for... as for the gpu.... i have no idea

I myself am unsure how exactly to change settings in the bios, specifically for the ram. Is there a guide you can link that I can follow?

I installed and ran realTemp 3.60. It seems I only have 4 cores showing up as indicated by only 4 temperatures. Aren't I supposed to have 8? If so, how can I activate the remaining 4?

The other four "cores" are virtual cores, hyperthreading. They aren't physically there, it's just the processor filling up empty space in the pipeline with instructions from another thread.

If you look in the performance tab of the task manager you'll see 8 "cores".

me, personally, i would turn off hyper threading

I'm still confused as to why my gpu results show 0 for memory, memory clock, and core clock. Also how can I resolve the speed of my ram? I would be forever grateful for a more expected vantage score.

Here is a link to my results again: http://3dmark.com/3dmv/3099717

Again, thank you everyone for the interest. I understand it can be frustrating to help someone who may not understand what is being said as a beginner. I'm learning a lot however thanks to everyone here.

i would be glad to make a day out of helping you..... but i don't know what your bios looks like, what the tabs look like, or even if it CAN set the ram timings, there are lots of motherboard bios that do not give you any control at all, i hate those.... but you never know until you buy it unless you now someone who has that board..... on the one in my brother's comp, i read in the newegg reviews(which are mostly garbage) that the bios gave you total control over the ram and everything..... and i am happy to say they were right....

edit: i found out that you supposedly can set the ram timings, and supposedly it is very easy pm me if you want to make a day out of it....
