Bad 4790K?

According to UserBenchmark, my intel i-7 4790K is performing at the 22nd percentile while running their benchmarking tool. I made sure that my CPU was running all cores and at the stock frequency. Should I be worried?

If it helps, I also have a GTX 970 and 16GB (4x4) of Muskin Redline DDR3 1600 RAM. The CPU is cooled by an NZXT Kraken x61 and the OS is on a Samsung 850 Pro.

the reason for the score is the fact that you're running at stock frequencies. most people who use a benchmark for that kinda thing are probably overclocking a bit. that in turn would raise the average score for that CPU, which makes running it at stock speeds below the average. of course, i would check temps too.

Thank you. This makes sense. I guess I just assumed everyone else would have tested at stock speeds. I overclocked a little and hit 66th percentile without exceeding 60C so everything seems normal now.
