More about getting 4820 3dmarks score 4890
  1. Phenom II X4 955 running at 765 isn't a good CPU for that benchmark, plus you only have 3.25GB available on RAM.

    Are you asking us if that's your score?

    3dmark says your cpu is running at 765mhz instead of 3.2Ghz. The motherboard you linked based on neweggs information only supports 65W processors meaning it doesn't support your power hungry 125W Phenom II 955. Try getting a motherboard that actually supports your processor, because even an Athlon X2 with a 4670 gets a higher 3dmark06 score than you. You must have terrible performance in nearly everything.

    I looked on Jetways website, I can't even find that motherboard on there.
  4. yeah I got swindled by newegg. It was the lowest cpu+mobo combo deal they had specifically for the 955, and I was clueless on the mobo being inadequate. I've spent the last two days puling my hair out trying to figure out the problem, and came to the realization that the motherboard sucks..and that it automatically set my clock to 800 mhz..now i have to get punished through the rma. I guess newegg practices combo bundles not making sense, pretty deceitful. I know I should have done my homework, but I did. I went by performance charts, and PSU wattage requirements. How the hell was I supposed to know that the cheapest priced motherboard-cpu combo was incompatible..so lame

    I think most would have assumed the board would be compatible with the 955 since Newegg had a combo, actually shocks me that they would have a combo that doesn't work.
  6. Yeah I guess I'll try to return everything..since I'm worried I might have done damage to the cpu having it run on such a low tdp motherboard :/
