Unigine Heaven HD 7970 low score?

So I tested my system with unigine heaven today, because my 7970 doesn't seem to do all it is supposed to do. So my score was 407, isn't that quite low for a system and setups that ill post below?? And it is single gpu only. So please tell me is everything how it should be or is my card underpowered for its standards? And one more thing the reason I did this test, was because I noticed that I get around 20-60 fps on skyrim with everything ultra, when i see people having over 60 all the time with the same card, is this normal? Thank you.

  1. That is definitely a low score for that GPU. You should be up above 900, as I have a comparable card to yours, and on those settings that is what I just scored.

    I'd start with checking your temperatures, both of your CPU and GPU to see how hot you are getting while gaming.
  2. I have a i5-3570k @4.2 and a 7950 @ 1125/1300. With the same settings as you I got 862.

    I forgot that I made this thread a while back and I wish you would be still around.
    So my temps are following:
    Battlefield 4 all ultra:
    GPU: 72 c
    CPU: 40c (watercooling)

    League of Legends (all maxed)

    GPU: 61 c
    CPU: around 40c

    Skyrim (all ultra)

    GPU: 75 c
    CPU around 50c


    So how could I get my card work on its standards? I feel like its a money waste for such a expensive card if its not working properly.
