    This is false. My 2500k was rated a 7.5 at stock speeds. A 4.5GHz OC bumped the WEI rating of both my CPU and RAM to a 7.9...
    Thanks for the info!

    This is what I've been waiting for since I didn't do any overclocking. So after the last couple of posts and this one I can say that the custom OCs go beyond the power plan's cpu underclocking stuff.

    Cheers!

    I take it they have done away with WEI in 8.1 Preview altogether? Cos it certainly ain't there no more!

    I don't get this increased ratings with Windows-8. A further OC of my GPU's doesn't change a thing either.

    I've heard Winsat.exe it's still there but not working...
    They will be adding the function back in the release, most likely.

    This still remains a mystery.

    Doesn't really matter for me, as there are just not enough info's about it, how it calculates this scores.

    If you can afford it, go for Intel. A 4770k-System is not more expensive than a 3770k-System, so just go for the latest tech.
