Default ssd corsair p128 bad WEI score

Hi all,
I bought a p128 and installed it for my system ( Windows7 ultimate 64) . I did all the SSD-tweeks that I had to do and my pc runs like hell
Only, my WEI score is still 5,9 for that SSD? Is this normal for an p128? I have the feeling that it should be at least over 7 , all works normal and very fast!
Anyone?

WEI is a useless misleading M$ generated label. it means nothing in the real world. run atto or hdbench for the real benchmarks

I think it only tests the speed of the drive that the OS is on, if you have the OS on a HDD, it'll stick at 5.9, as measures the speed of the primary drive with the OS on it I believe. I think if you have the OS installed on the SSD and have the SSD set as primary, and the HDD set as secondary, that might fix it, but it's just a cosmentic error and doesn't seem to be worth "fixing" something that isn't really broken.

also it's possible that the files that the WEI uses to test are in the temp folder that you may have moved to the HDD, if that's the case, move the folder back, get the real score, then move it back on the HDD.
