I actually don't care about anything except the CPU score which I thought was amusing. I checked to see if other people with my CPU were getting the same result and there were some (not *quite* as bad.) So what is the secret to getting a good score other than the obvious- nothing else running etc. How could my score be this low?

From the scores that are posted, I can see that people with the same chip are getting much better scores, over twice as fast overall...

selected from posted scores:

AMD FX8150 EightCore running at 3908MHz
Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate
RAM: 16330 MB

and they are getting - with the same CPU not OC'ed more than mine- literally triple my score in the CPU category:

CPU (Score: 719)

(taken from the same user's score as above)

Now if CPUs are commodity items built all alike (and they are for all intents and purposes) and both CPUs are OC'ed about the same amount (this person's was actually running slower than mine ) the posted results lead me to believe that there is something more going on with respect to posting a good score.

Anyone know what that something might be?

Your CPU score should definitely be much higher. It's hard to say what's wrong exactly, but here are a few things to investigate:

Your overclock might be unstable

Your CPU might not be getting enough power

Check those first. Try seeing if the score is actually higher with the CPU set to stock speed.
