Why does my i5 8400 score so much lower than other machines?

I have a brand new i5 8400 with 16 gigs or ram hyper furry Kingston.

I have windows 10 with settings on best performance, no bloat ware.

I score only 17 000 but others score 24 000, and some score 10 000....

Why is this?

Is my system deffective? The i5 8400 can't be overclocked, and this is a desktop so why such a huge difference?

    Thanks for reaching out to us about this. Could you please send me a link to one of your results in the Geekbench Browser so that I can take a closer look at your scores?
