Some 3dMark06 Question.

Just wondering how many people purchased this E6 version of the Venice core before NewEgg took it off their site. AND, what success have you had with overclocking this?

I Just put my rig together this past weekend, and finally got around to installing windoze. I put the 64 bit edition on ...i'm not impressed.

ANYWAY - I receive a paltry 3102 in 3dmark06! Now, I know my system is not a 2k or even a 1.5k system, but I kinda expected to be able to run this benchmark test. I was a BIT surprised when it was going through the tests, and I was only getting like 8 FPS and in some cases,...it wasn't even a slideshow - I thought it was crashing.

On a GOOD note...when I left 3dmark, my CPU and MB where both around 30c. That's good right?

  1. That score isn't that surprising for a 3dMark06 run. I only get about 4900 points and I'm running an overclocked x1900xt. The CPU test in 3dMark06 will be choppy no matter what processor you have.

    And your temps are very good.
  2. I dont think thats actually a bad score for that hardware listed, my setup gets 8309 SLI'd Dual core'd and raptor raid'd...

    Hey at least you have outstanding cooling right?!! :P
  3. hmm thanks for the .nfo

    my case has this crazy ductwork that supports the placement of a fan that hovers over the cpu and another that hovers over the gpu.

    I then have room for a nice fan in the front of the computer.

    Right now, I only have the one 120mm case fan. I expected to have one in the front but was surprised when the case showed up with just the one in the back.

    Just got done playing AOE3 demo. Been a long time since I played a good RTS so I'm thinking of getting this one. Everything is turned up ALL the way...so that's a good thing. I was getting a bit tweaked about those tests that 3dmark06 provided. When I saw the stuttering, I was a bit...upset :)

    I'm hoping everything else for the next 2 years is completely playable on high settings, with the exception of particuliar games that were designed to run on systems that were not even invented yet for the most part, one being Oblivion. I'm gonna try to find a 'trial copy' here soon to check it out before I buy.

    Suggestions on Fans? At least one in the front and...? or...?

  4. Just so you know, 3DMark06 was really geared towards dual core CPUs, that's why you'll see anyone with a dual core CPU getting much higher scores than single core.

    As to fans, you can look in the cooling section of the forums for recommendations for brands but I think you should always have one in the front as they will help to keep your HDDs cool.
  5. 3DMark06 score of 7305.
  6. Good temps and not a bad score. Be happy :D

    thats true. I score'd over 9,200
  8. I have a HiS X1800XT at 690/1600MHz running on an Asus A8R32-MVP with an Opteron 175 at 2.64GHz . . .
    that will do 5,036 3DMarks06...
  9. jesus how the hell is he getting that kind of score off a venice core, i had my 4000 san diego core clocked at 2.82 GHz and a x850xt running and i only get a 2086, uhhhhh. o well.
  10. My Opteron 175 is the E6 stepping.

    I also got 10,086 3DMarks05
    and 18,845 3DMarks03
  11. Some of those SLI scores seem a little low for my liking.....is that second card really worth it? The reason I ask is another 7800GTX is a future upgrade option for me & as is this system churns out a 2006 score of around 5050 +/- 10.


    AMD 64X2 3800 @ 2350Mhz Core 9x260FSB
    Asus A8N-SLI Premium
    1024Mb 2x Corsair CMX512-3200XL 2-2-2-5 1CMD
    Asus EN7800GTX @ 500/1300Mhz
    Windows X64 Pro
  12. I scored over 9,200
  13. I actually think your score is quite good, I don't know whether you set your graphics card to performance or quality so I left mine at the default setting of one step towards quality.

    My system is:
    x2 3800 at 2727 MHz
    Asus A8N-SLI Premium
    Gainward 7800gt 512mb edition non oc - 450/1300 MHz
    2x 1gb 2.5-3-3-7 1T ram at 454MHz
    Windows xp

    I get 4376 3D marks and a CPU score of 2039.

    -X850 XT


    thats why ......


    ( SM3.0 )
  15. I think I found the problem!

    -7600GT-

    12 Pipelines, that's it. 3DMark06 is a very, very demanding program.

    What Ram Speed / Multiplier are you using there mucker?
    227 * 12?? :?

  17. Yes, I'm using a 12 divider (2727/12 = 227.25)
    Normal speed for the ram is DDR400 at 2-3-3-6.

    How have you managed a multiplier of 12?
    Ive used most of the bios's out there for this mobo (currently Beta 1011-6)
    & have never seen the multiplier selection go above 10 for a 3800X2
  19. Oh no oh no, I think you are mistaken.
    CPU multiplier and RAM divider is different.

    Ok, my CPU does not go above 10. I effectively have HTT set at 272, my CPU multiplier at 10 and voltage at 1.35.

    My Ram is set to a 5/6 ratio. In the DRAM configurator set your ram speed to 333MHZ as that is what the RAM would run at for a default 200MHz HTT (200MHz * (5/6) * 2).
  20. Ahhhhh...I got ya.
    nice tip, had a fiddle & got this one running at 2500 core...(250x10)
    on a bad note, didnt add much to 3dmark...5064 & I was getting a similar score with 9x260 & no divider. time will tell after ive messed with the ram a bit more.
