    Were you running anything in the background while you ran the benchmark?

    I know GeekBench v3 trial was running in 32 bit mode only.

    The notification messages do not show that info and you can choose 32 or 64 I believe in v4.

    Your score will increase quite a bit if you pull two sticks. Only populate 1-3 and 5-7. Triple channel memory.

    Give it a try....
