My Windows Experience Score – Awkward!

Check out this somewhat recent Windows Experience score, it’s way off – awkward. I get 6,9 because of the drive – which is an SSD from OCZ.

I “migrated” this Windows 7 installation from a regular mechanical drive some weeks ago, it’s a very old installation – perhaps one and a half year old, with A LOT of data on it. And the system is heavily encrypted too: everything from the boot to the installation itself, which “slows” things down a bit, I suspect – but this is not something I notice.

However! The Experience score seems low for the disk, but I plan on replacing it with one SSD from Intel very soon, or in fact, several in RAID0 configuration. That may improve things a little bit.

I should get 7.9, the highest score…when I have replaced the drive and also the motherboard – because it’s a budget board and it is not even capable of being overclocked: such options are extinct from the UEFI.

But please don’t think I give a hoot about this score, it’s just interesting. In general I couldn’t care less about Windows Experience as it’s pointless, although indicative.
