Hey guys!

Ive been having a few issues with my CPU performance:


AMD Phenom II x4 825 (2.8GHZ)
Sapphire HD 5970

My GPU score on 3d Mark vantage was 20947 which is solid so i know my card is working well but my CPU score was just 9606!!!!

Im not getting top performance in ganes like crysis and now i know just how much my cpu is bottlenecking my card etc!

Is this in face a Very low CPU score and what can I do to improve it. I cant OC my CPU because I have a dell motherboard. Is there any other way I vcan boost its performcance besides OC.

Any suggestions appreciated!!!

20947 is not a vantage score. Was it P20947?

Normally you don't get a very good graphics score if the CPU is doing poorly, which seems odd.

It was P16174

GPU score 20947
CPU score 9606.

Seems very low to me!

From what I can find your cpu score isnt that bad I found this score on the futuremark Orb website that was similar to yours was 10964 and it was a Phenom II x4 955 at stock frequency and a 5970, and the graphics score was only 19312 with a total score of P16224.

Hmm I see! thanks for that find - clearly I just need to OC my CPU.

Does anyone know if theres any way to OC a dell becasue they disbale that function, Id rather not have to fork out for a new motherboard if I an avoid it!

Sorry, I hate to tell you this but the only way you are going to be able to overclock is to buy a new motherboard, one problem though if any of the hardware connections are proprietary you may have some trouble. If you know enough about computers to tell if they are proprietary then good, If not post some pics of the inside of the case and we can take a look. [:bohleyk:1]
