CPU score particularly low - any suggestions please?

Recommended Posts

Hello, I have tested my score a few times and my CPU test seems particularly low compared to similar systems.

This is my score:

Verified NovaBench Score: 564

Test run on March 7, 2013 at 06:51
Microsoft Windows 7 Professional
intel.png Intel Xeon E5345 2.33GHz running at 2327 MHz

ati.png ATI Radeon HD 5450 GPU

8190 MB System RAM (Score: 147)
- RAM Speed: 2211 MB/s

CPU Tests (Score: 350)
- Floating Point Operations/Second: 101699484
- Integer Operations/Second: 270553272
- MD5 Hashes Generated/Second: 751180

Graphics Tests (Score: 48)
- 3D Frames Per Second: 159

Hardware Tests (Score: 19)
- Primary Partition Capacity: 466 GB
- Drive Write Speed: 26 MB/s

This seems like a similar system but has a much higher CPU result:

Verified NovaBench Score: 733

I appreciate this does not give you much information but is there anything you could suggest I could try to increase the CPU score?

Many thanks in advance.

Is the score consistently lower?

There are a few things that might be causing this: a process running during the test using CPU, insufficient power supply, CPU running too hot, power settings of the OS, etc. Check some of those first.

Tip's to get the best performance out of your computer before you do your benchmark.

1. Got to Run, type in msconfig

2. Got to Boot tab.

3 Advanced Settings

4. Number of processors

5. Choose whats best for your CPU

6. Unpick the Maximum memory

7. Go to OK, Save and Exit, Reboot system.

Whilst running a benchmark program, best to close all unneeded programs in Task Manager > Ctrl+Alt+Delete and choose Task Manager, click on an item, Right click and End Process.
