Hello everyone,

I recently bought a 940 off ebay and don't seem to be getting the maximum performance out of it. I'm upgrading from a Athlon II Regor 245 @ 2.9ghz.

I benched this cpu with passmark and got a cpu score of 2854, according to passmark I should be getting closer to 3600 (I know there should be some variance but 800 points seems a bit high). I also jus feel like I should have seen a bigger increase in performance from the regor.

Here are links to my hardware:


I have checked my cpuid info against others with the the same cpu and it all seems to check out. I'm wondering if there is some setting somewhere I should either turn on or turn off (I have tried disabling cool n' quiet, didn't notice any difference). Any help would be very appreciated maybe I'm jus expecting too much of this cpu.

BTW I'm running this at stock 3.0ghz not OC'd or anything.
