I have like a "problem" . Months ago I ran a windows experience index assessment and my processor's speed rating was 5.9. today I ran a new one and it came 2.9 how to explain this?? what happened ?? my processor is becoming old or there is a problem with its installation? thanks for any help you provide. I ran the first test on a biostar G31 M7 TE
then I changed motherboard because of performance issues.
I think it's a problem with the motherboard/installation. CPUs do not "get old". I suggest you download the free version of "Everest" or "Soft Sandra" that can do an evaluation of the computer. It's probably the "front side bus frequency" that needs to be changed in the BIOS.
Thanks for your reply, I would like to provide more information on the problem, in case people do not understand..
1. Months ago I ran a Windows Experience Index test on Windows 7 and I was getting 5.9 as processor rating, games were not lagging after some time. When I play PES 2011, the game started well, no lagging, then the game starts to lag.
2. I decided to change motherboard as someone told me that the Biostar G31-m7 TE 's North bridge is close to the cpu and that if I want more performance I need to have a mb with the northbridge which is not near it. I changed motherboard myself, installed the processor in it myself. I started the pc and it booted , I was happy. Then I installed some tools from the new MSI G31 TM -P35 motherboard, one of them was Dual Core, I ran it and got to my facebook page to chat with some friends, a few seconds later I heard a siren saying that the temperature of my motherboard is 93 degrees Celcius. At First I wasnt worried as it came from a software installed on windows, then during the motherboard bootup I decided to take a look in the bios and I was stunned to see 95 degrees celcius...
NOTE: The PC never shut down , even at hot temperature and the desktop performance is normal, idk why games lag , maybe my graphics card is getting old but idk why.
thanks for any help you provide me, I would really apreciate it cause I dont want to lose this processor!
You loaded MSI software on a Biostar motherboard? Now it looks like your voltages are way too high. Please remove the MSI software and/or restore the BIOS to Biostar standard settings. We have no way to know and or solve your problems if you "mix and match" hardware and software.
Hi xpcman, I didnt, anyways, thanks for your reply :), I meant that I changed motherboard, I think you got confused with the names. Before I was using a Biostar G31-M7 TE, now im using a MSI G31 TM-P35 or maybe I did a mistake, if so , im very sorry.
