xfx 7950 dd
16gb 1866mhz corsair veangence ram
128gb 840 pro ssd
750 watt ocz psu
i have been getting all round poor performance from the pc. it feels like everything is under performing. Its worth mentioning all the temps are fine, drivers up to date and everyone was installed correctly. a few weeks ago i done a test on 3dmark vantage. The link to the results for this-http://www.3dmark.com/3dmv/4588283. just incase the link is not working the score was P33208, the graphical score was 35236 and the cpu score was 28318. i done a test today and results were much lower and they were using higher overclocks on both cpu and gpu, i did adjust voltages aswell. The link to these results are- http://www.3dmark.com/3dmv/4622099. Again if the link is not working the score was P26410, the graphical score was 26230 and the cpu score was 26965. These results are lower and using higher clocks? when i lowered to the original clocks i used in the first benchmark they were even lower. the gpu scores 9200 on 3dmark11. I have been getting poor performance in games aswell for example black ops 1 i cant use aa or its unplayable and even mine craft is choppy. Also the ram is 1866 and yet is only runnign at 667, despite me manualy setting to 1866 in bios even if i set it at 1600 it runs at 667. Could all of these things really be faulty. Or could it be a faulty psu not providing enough power. Could it be a faulty motherboard. its probably worth mentioning that the bios on the board takes about 15 seconds just to get the windows loading even though its set on fast boot. All help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
It can be many things but I would start with resetting CMOS and try again only with XMP for ram enabled in BIOS.
Hi, i just tried that and no change unfortunately. I have been monitoring the temps of my card for a week or so and on idle it is running at 60c+, This is way to high surely for idle. Could this be a sign of a faulty card? and could it effect in game performance?.
Nothing blocking the cooler and i checked the fans and they are spinning fine. I have contacted the seller and i am going to send it back and hopefully get a replacement. But i still have the issue of the ram only running at 1333mhz, no matter what settings i use in the bois. in the os it only shows 1333mhz. I am using 64bit windows 7 ultimate.
