what do u use to cool ur cpu??

The 3Dmark 06 seems old now.
It might be a long time until there is a (native) DX10 3Dmark.

I use a Zalman. Nice big one for overclocking. Anything better starts getting really extreme/expensive/heavy.

He must be cooling that with the melting polar ice caps!!
It explains a lot.

yer im getting about the same as this guy with a 3800x2 at 2.3Ghz and my overclocked GTS 320
June 29, 2007 12:58:27 AM

well, i scored an 9200 on 3dmark06. with an x2 at 2.6 and 8800gts oc at 635\1860. Is that good? cpu score is 2050. what do u guys think?
June 29, 2007 2:09:07 AM

i would say between 8000 - 10500 would be avgrage for a amd x2 system with a 8800. c2d lol i wouldnt know
June 29, 2007 3:54:49 AM

Hey something like ~6000 3DMarks 06 is a great score - the '06 is tough!
3DMark 05 is easier (but not for most people's computers, heheh...)
Still my friend, with an 8800 Ultra and heavily torqued Quadcore CPU I wonder what 3DMarks 06 you could do?
LoL 25000 - I justa bout popped my cookies when I first read that. 8O It was harsh, I figured 'just give up now' heheh... :cry: 
My rig is almost 1 year old (except for the E6420, I used to have an E6400) and it will still crank out 20000 3DMarks no problem - in 3DMark '03! LoL
I want to pickup an 8800 GTS 640MB. Fook DX10. I want better DX9 performance and have no urge to get Vista anytime soon, what d'you guys think?
Regards
June 29, 2007 4:11:16 AM

~10,000 should see u play the latest games at full rez with a few fps to spare

16000-1700o for killer dual gpu oc 8800gtx with quad running 3.5ghz+


note: these numbers are approximate off the top of my head from system built in the last few months
June 29, 2007 5:19:18 AM

8) 12066 3DMark06 Score 8) ....hit it earlier today. After I got my 6600 Oc'd to 3.2 Ghz. My 8800 has a company Overclock so that helps too. I'm still not completely satisfied with my system. Just gotta wait for quad cores to drop eh.
June 29, 2007 6:21:15 PM

Ok.....maybe I spoke prematurely.....I was able to overclock my factory Overclocked 8800 even further and I was able to hit 12,144. It's so great.

Between 9,000 to 12,000 for single GPU and 12,000 to 16,000 for dual GPU's is good. Anything higher usually denotes overclocked quads running duals and harder to achieve.
June 30, 2007 4:44:17 AM

I scored a 3317 on 3dmark 06, and ive got an extremely good cpu, i dont understand it. Ive got a 5600+ x2 and an okay x1650xt. Whats the problem?
June 30, 2007 5:49:09 AM

Your problem is the x1650xt. It just isn't a great card. Sorry.
June 30, 2007 6:24:56 AM

I just reach 6000 on 3Dmark06 with an E4300 @ 3.0 and an overclocked 8600GT

What do you actually do whilst running benchmark after benchmark?
June 30, 2007 7:01:28 AM

In between benchmarking he likes to play Half-Life 2 at 133 fps as opposed to the 125 fps he was getting before. LOL.

Last fall my 3dmark06 score was 3719
with a GIGABYTE GV-NX76T256D-RH Geforce 7600GT 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Silent Pipe II video card.

same hardware except replaced patriot memory with crucial memory.
Then I got a evga 8800gtx for xmas last year and my 3dmark06 score jumped to over 10,000. 3dmark06 10750 score here
June 30, 2007 5:43:29 PM

Nah, i dont often benchmark unless I get new hardware....or Overclock a little further. I think it's important to see where your new clocks are getting you. If you had my magic system you might do it too.
June 30, 2007 6:57:10 PM

I don't know about that, cause i overclocked my 3500+ by 10% and you could SEE that 3dmark was running better but i got no score increase. You could count 3fps but it only showed it as 1. Which is BS but hey. Still stuck at an 05 of 2500... I love being on the bleeding edge with this 9600. The 2900 is INFINITELY better.

3DMark06: 13257

not even gonna bother with 3dmark05, get with the times people :)  especially when i see reviewers using 3dmark05 ><

specs for my system are:

q6600 @ 3.29
8800gtx @ 640/1022
ga-p35-dq6
2gb (bottleneck!!!) ddr2-800

will be sweet to play games on a viewsonic 27.5" widescreen lcd at 1900x1200 resolution when i finally get it.

Check my sig, I do have the X1950pro overclocked a little as well, 594 core, 722 memory. I can go higher on the core, but it starts running a little warm. It plays everything I run just great...Bioshock, Oblivian, NFS Carbon.
Whoops, that is my 05 benchmark, HA! Well anyway, I guess I had better get with the program and run 06. However, still it does great with games I play.
September 9, 2007 6:01:27 PM

I score 12000 (usually 11980~) on my system:

Q6600 2.7Ghz (9X300)
2gb patriot ram DDR2-800
8800GTS 320mb (636mhz core, 939mhz memory)
Gigabyte mb P35 (Forgot model but it supports DDR3)

I think 10-11k is EXCELLENT.

What I am new to, which I was really trying to get some info about, was overclocking the GPU. I use nTune, and I went up about 500 3dmarks fiddling with it.

But, I don't know... I am into Oblivion now, and don't really know if OC my card is causing me troubles in that game, so I stick to stock.

But when Crysis is out, I am going to OC the snot out of my GPU again. Just kinda sucks Oblivion seems unstable.

For my card, I can get 674/1100 for my core/ram speeds, but I have trouble with nTune storing my settings, I always have to go in and manually adjust it when I first boot up, then it is set till shutdown. And I get the increase in marks when I run 3Dmark06, so I know it works.

I have one main question, if you overclock your videocard, and temps are ok, can you still damage the card? Would kinda suck if my temps are under 74C and my card gets broken playing around with it.

I am new to it, so please let me know any cautions...

well , i think 6000 is good and 1000and 12000 and excellent for single cards
September 9, 2007 7:36:53 PM

Hmmm I feel odd then. I was only able to get just under 5k in 06 w/ a Opteron 180 w/ 2gigs and a 7900GS, guess that ain't too bad runnin' stock. Before I think I was running in the 1.2k area w/ my old 3000+ and 6600GT.

Uninstall Ntune and give Rivatuner a go.

CCA 6800 WITH 4200 X2, 8600GTS GAINWARD GS, AND 7000 - WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM MY "OC"
September 9, 2007 8:43:59 PM

I don't get it. I got a 6325 with my system with 3DMark06.

Case: Antec P180B
Motherboard: Gigabyte P35 DS3R
Processor: Intel e6750 Duo Core @ 3.2GHz
Video Card: Sapphire x1950xt 256MB
Ram: Crucial Ballistix PC6400 (2GB)
HD: Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD3200AAKS 320GB
DVD Burner: Samsung 18X DVD±R DVD Burner

It looks like I scored really low for some reason with mine when comparing to others.

the primary component to look at is your gpu, which it seems to score about in line with, not sure if the 256mb gpu memory buffer is going to hinder scoring at all, compared to larger gpu buffers... but, your score seems more or less whats expected, especially without extravagant cooling or OCs. the last time i tested on 06, i only got between 4-5k (closer to 4k, but still) with an X2 3800+ @ 2.6, 7800gt 256 470/1100 (stock oc), 2GB pc3200. the cpu on the other hand, only plays a more minor role in scoring, except when benching the cpu in particular. but dispite the lower score, a 7800gt still plays games decently.

so if you were to upgrade your gpu to an 8800 gtx or so, it looks like your score might very well get close to doubling. but upgrading just for the sake of scoring higher 3dmarks is kindof a lame reason, imo.

Ive got an Amd Athlon X2 6000+, 8800GTX and 2Gb of Ram and my heighest 3dm06 score is 6934.
I really dont get it why i am getting these low scores :(

That's a terrible score. You should be scoring at least 10000. Maybe your ram sucks like crazy.
September 9, 2007 11:14:17 PM

4 Days ago i only had a score of 5430 with my amd Athlon X2 4400+.
So i tought it was my cpu holding the 8800 back,after i ran 3dmark again i only get 6934 :(

Something in your system is maybe defective. The motherboard maybe, or graphics card. Can you tell me specifically what you're getting in each category? You know like cpu score, sm 2.0 score, sm3.0 score. Your cpu should be around 2000-3000. And your graphic scores should total around 8000. So your total score really should be 10000. list me your pc specs.
September 10, 2007 12:31:15 AM

omerome, maybe the 1950xt is holding you back by quite a bit.

Wait a sec, maybe having antivirus on would suck up resources?? I always turn Avast! Autoscan off before benchmarking anything, maybe it is something simple like that?
