um no i didnt prolly should defrag as well also i dont know what background proggies i can get rid of but mostly i just wanted to know if i had a decent score or a poor score.i dont know how to config my bios meaning what options should be on or off .so i benched my machine and
was wondering if that score was low.
I have a venice 3200 w/ a connect 3D X800GTO unlocked to 16 pipes
clocked @ 530/510 and i've gotten 6500 something on it.
system is not oc'ed in any way. ran the test many times. so i would say yours is not good
i saved it as a jpeg ( i think), i can email it to you. for some reason at home it won't let me sign onto the sight. i'm at work now.
just installed my evga 7800Gt and got 7500 (over 7500 don't remember exactly) i can email that too.
i haven't even tweeked my system yet. i think, for some reason, i get higher scores then normal. think it's 'cause i have a raptor drive? I also have OVZ platinum Rev.2 memory 2-2-2-5 timings... i don't know, but i'm not complaining
I think i have an idea, i had antivirus running with the firewall while connected to the net the G15 keyboard was also running in the background which is a resource hog, also all the asus software was running aswell.
I think that would explain the difference if not, I have no idea must mean your cpu is a proper work horse, i will try and do another Benchmark 2moro, and see what happen.
Dont worry about emailing them me beat my 7800gt score then me and you will go into a who can OC there card the highest to get the highest score. all in a friendly way lol :twisted:
I'm not in a contest with anybody, i could care less if my score beats anybody's to be honest with you. I'm just happy with my current setup. I should add this is my first nVidia card, i've been a loyal ATI guy for years...
Bios flashing. and 1.4v vcore. For some reason when upping the clocks with coolbits or Rivatuner I would get the failed messages.
My memory is 2.2ns ddr and would crap out at 840 or so. I knew it should run 900 or better .
So I started flashing the bios with higher clock speeds until artifacts started happening. Got to 420/960 stable with the stock heatsink. Might go higher with something better installed.
Might throw this old P4 heatsink on when I bored one day and see what happens.
