Cpu Subscore Change

October 1, 2010 at 08:19:00
Specs: Windows 7
CPU Intel E2220 subscore was @ 5.8

I thought I'd "upgrade" to the E5700 which has a larger L2 cache and clock but now my score in CPU dropped from 5.8 to 3.9! Am I missing something here?

Why wouldn't you have just overclocked the E2220?

My motherboard won't allow it. It's the weakest link right now actually. I got the e5700 free btw.

Run the test again. Sometimes, upgrades confuse WinSAT. When I recently upgraded my graphics card, WinSAT thought it would be a good idea to test ONLY the video card and HDD. It actually skipped the CPU and RAM tests, causing their scores to drop from 6.3 to 3.0. Running WinSAT a second time brought the CPU/RAM scores back up to 6.3

if the above doesn't work try the following.

Go to C:\windows\performance\WinSAT\DataStore in there delete all the DataStore performance log files from past performance test that you ran and retest it again.

Sometimes these perforamnce test log file may get corrupt.

Reasonable, stable, and easy to overclock

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
If all else fails, read instructions.

Thanks to everyone for the speedy replies. I came across a Dell Insipiron i560 motherboard and upgraded to that. Something I had never experienced was my OS adapting itself to a completely new motherboard. In my past experience always a clean install was needed. I wonder if this is a change in Win 7 I neglected. Either way I'm back to a better Subscore and an altogether better system. Oh and Jam, I opted for the MSi TwinFrozr 1GB N250GTS.
