  1. Is this a good benchmark?
  2. Best answer
    Its good, but I'd recommend getting (or trialing) 3DMark Vantage, 06 is kind of old. I mean you can still use it, but i recommend trying out Vantage to be more certain.
  3. thanks for the heads up, this is my first build and overclock, still figuring out the significance of all the numbers
  4. The benchmark score in 3dvantage was 16,100. The high average was over 17,000 but I think the high scores may be somewhat exagerated by people with nvidea cards leaving physx turned on. Is 16,100 a good benchmark in 3dvantage.
  5. You do realize you could just google this right? Depending on your preset, high, performance, or extreme.

  6. i had same confusion before, wondering why cpu test only get 2-3fps.....but it turns out, 3Dmark06 is kinda old, even using i7 925 only get 6k for cpu score, 2-3fps,...try 3Dmark Vantage...

    Thats a good score...to be honest i don't like 3dmark06 a lot to be honest...with my i7 rig + GTX275 i get 18,700 Marks thats both of them stock. CPU score is 5200 and on my old rig Q9300 @ 3.8 i get 5700 cpu score. I have an i7 870 btw i7 940 equivalent. Vantage will test ure pc a lot better...if you want to really test it try the "High" or "Extreme" preset. Default is performance i get P15000 which i thinks normal.
