I ran the cache and memory benchmark test and it pretty much follows the line for my CPU when I select it for comparison with the exception of the 512 KB blocks which show somewhere around 10,000 MB/s but my test only showed 1200 for the 512K blocks. All else was exactly as it should be. I doubt this is a major concern... or is it? I also ran this test on my other PC which has a P4 1.99 GHZ processor and it followed the line almost exactly including the 512 KB blocks. I am considering swaping the CPU in the machines and see if it makes any changes. I can backup with my older computer slightly faster then I can with this one. I may do this later and see if that solves anything.
