Default Windows Experience Index?

I've gotten my computer up and running now but i've looked at my windows experience index and its rated my i7-920 as 3.5. this seems a bit low to me because my core 2 duo laptop has a higher rating than this, is there any way to increase it? also i bought 1333MHz RAM but my motherboard detects it as 1066MHz how do i fix that? thanks

Your motherboard defaults the RAM multiplier to 8. BCLK X RAM multiplier = 133 X 8 = 1064.

Just increase the multiplier to X 10 to get 1333Mhz RAM speed at stock BCLK.

Oh and make sure you enable the XMS RAM profile in the BIOS too.
