My Benchmark Results

Recommended Posts

My system has been acting extremely bad ever since I brought it back from my sister's last Friday 12/26/14. Before that it had been running great and had no issues with it.

The night before I came back home when I went to sleep I turned off my TV and forgot that my surge protector was setup to shut the power off to the computer as well since it is a switched surge protector.

Hopefully someone can help with this as I am not sure how to read these results since this is my first time using a Benchmark software.

Thanks in advance.

Your system is considerably under-performing. You can check the average scores for parts here:,

Your CPU is scoring 64, but average in your database is 405. Your GPU scored 47, average is 460.

It might be a power issue, but I think simply turning off the power abruptly wouldn't cause damage to the PSU. That's probably a coincidence. Still, you should check your BIOS screen, power supply issues might be listed there. Check that all fans are spinning too.

Yeah, I checked the scores around what they should have been but after checking everything I could think of(which I actually should have thought about one other thing that actually WAS the issue) I took it to a local computer shop to see about a new power cord since a buddy of mine had the same issue and he said that he fixed his by using another power cord. After doing testing with another power cord at the computer shop, the guy told me that it was more than likely the thermal paste on the CPU had gone bad. *palms forehead* After messing with computer for as long as I have, I should have thought about that.


Around 3pm Monday(1/5/15) I cleaned and reapplied thermal paste(a better compound purchased at the computer shop) and it seems to be working like normal again but only thorough testing and time will tell.


Thanks for the reply though. Ran the benchmark again and uploaded the new results.
