Question on First Build; Low FPS SLI?

Hey what's up guys, I just recently made my first computer a couple days ago.

i5 3570K (4.4GHz)
16GB RAM (2x8gb 1600 G. Skill)
Hyper212 Evo with SP120 fans in push/pull
2x MSI GTX 760 Twin Frozr SLI

My CPU idles at 25-30c, and 30-35c for GPUs. I've taken a look at Afterburner, looks quite the beast to tackle. My main concern is that I'm getting fairly low FPS in Heaven Benchmark. I'm getting 40-50 fps. I tried OC the GPUs but it would crash my Heaven Benchmark at just only +170 Core Clocks with +1.2v.

I need some serious help.

  1. What settings are you using to run the Heaven benchmark? ie. resolution,
    AA, AF, etc. Are you using the latest Heaven V4?

  2. I'm using 1920 x 1080 resolution with everything maxed.

    Do you mean with 8x AA? If so then it sounds about right.

    Can you run a 3DMark11 Performance test? Let me know the
    submission URL? I can compare to my own data and existing
    results, eg.:

    The overall score can be skewed by CPU power, but the Graphics
    score can be compared ok. Or with the same CPU you have:

    What you could do is scroll down the list of 3570K/760 SLI
    submissions, find one with a similar CPU clock to your 4.4,
    see what the detailed Graphics score is.
