  1. Yes maybe but CPU score of 1225, isn't that ridiculously low for any quad core ? :S
  2. Do you think Overclocking my Q6700 would be a good idea with the P965 Platinum ?
  3. 1225? With a quad? Something is definitely wrong. Are you sure your motherboard supports your processor? Make sure all cores are seen, and that they're all running at the correct speed (CPU-Z is a good choice to do this).
