    hello everyone, i've feeling my mac crazy slow so i decided to format it and run some tests, at first glance blackmagis ssd test shows good results but then i went to try geek bench

    the worst performance in the history of geek bench is (under 32bit):

    Single-Core 2755
    Multi-Core 10580

    Mines Are:
    Single-Core 1158
    Multi-Core 4448

    Thats half of the performance! for the same unit, so thats why i feel my computer lagged all the time, it takes much more time than before to process anything like mails, safari, etc.

    any ideas what could be? i changed thermal paste and its well putted, also temperatures are fine and don't play or force my computer at anything.

    thanks guys :D

    Looks like half your cores aren't working!!!

    As my title says it looks like half your cores are down, take it to apple and get it fixed.

    Could be lots of things after looking at your posting history:

    - Damage from the "couple of water spills".
    - Damage from when your sister dropped it.
    - Damage from when you replaced the battery yourself with a third-party unit.
    - Damage from when you re-applied thermal paste.

    At any rate, if Apple finds out any of the above, by either you telling them, or from visual inspection (highly likely), then good luck getting any assistance under warranty (moot point if you didn't get AppleCare.)

    Look in activity monitor to see if half of your cores are actually down.
