Long simulation benchmark times

Hello All,

I have ran the Solidworks Performance Benchmark last night on my main CAD machine. All the times came back at about what simular machines have posted except for the simulation time, which was 125 seconds. I ran it again and got almost identical times to the previous run. Below are all of the times and details on the PC. What would cause the simulation time to be so high? Also, do the rest of the times look reasonable for the hardware?
