i bought samsung 300e5v-s02in which has processer intel i3 3120m recently and to my surprise the windows experience index rating for processor is just 4.9 to which i was expecting 6.9 as per many reviews. also the Geekbench 2.4 score was just 2700 as opposed to the scores of over 5500 for the same processer users. then i noticed that the clockspeed of the laptop never goes beyond 1200mhz(specification says 2.5ghz). i'm worried what's the cause of it. i doubt whether samsung did something from the BIOS side. they did the same for my friend laptop with a8 processor by disabling overclocking. i even have my doubts on my chipset which is intel hm75. please help me out


P.S-the reported benchmarks are done in high performance mode and i also disabled power saving mode in BIOS

Check your power options in control panel, try balanced or high performance, it sounds like you are on power saver. Also make sure you are running the benchmarks when the system is plugged into power as many systems downclock when on battery.
