Alright so I finished my machine a couple days ago, (I know it took me forever, I just can't ever seem to find any time these days) and it seems to be running alright. Since I moved the computer to its permanent home I'm getting temps a little higher than I want (39-41C idle and 54-55C load no OC) but when I ran the 3dMark Vantage test, I got a score of ~15000. I didn't know how to compare this? Is this a good score for my set up? I looked up some other results and mine seem pretty pathetic in comparison. I know I'm using a stock 965, but I thought I'd do better. What do you guys think?
Well, I can run a test with my 955 and GTX260, and give you my score. With that you can take an idea if your score is good or not. But, I'm not sure, IMO you should get a better score with that CPU and GPU. What RAM do you have?
I thought the only difference with the bought version (other than obvious limitations) was that I could only view my score online. I didn't think it performed a different test on the system itself. Am I wrong in this?
