Once you have installed ChrisPC WEI, click on Rate this computer button and wait while your computer is beeing tested by the Windows System Assessment Tool - WinSAT.
ChrisPC Win Experience Index was tested successfully on Windows 10 Build 10586.318 and Windows 10 build 10240.

What is the Windows Experience Index ?
The Windows Experience Index measures the capability of your computer's hardware and software configuration and expresses this measurement as a number called a base score. A higher base score generally means that your computer will perform better and faster than a computer with a lower base score, especially when performing more advanced and resource-intensive tasks.
Ever wonder how a PC you own or want to buy, stacks up against others? The Windows Experience Index is one way to find out.
When you're shopping for a new PC, the Windows Experience Index can help you find the model that suits your needs. Scoring a PC you already own can help pinpoint slower components worth upgrading. A PC with a score of 2 is typically sufficient for basic tasks like text processing or web browsing. Running the Aero desktop experience on Windows 7, requires at least a 3, while graphics-intensive software frequently requires a 4 or higher.
