I just bought a AMD Phenom II x4 955 for my M2N32-SLI Deluxe motherboard. I read that others were able to get it to work so I wanted to try. I do have it working but when I run 3DMark06 my score is still very low, Far Cry 2 benchmarks are only averaging 40 - 45 avg.I fixed the issue with Cool 'n Quiet and only running 800mhz. My score is 10645 but everyone else is around 20k. Here are my specs, can anyone help explain why?
If I had left cool n quiet enabled I could never get above 800mhz. I used CPU-Z to find my actual speed it is now running at 3.2Ghz. 200x16. But that is not the point. Why do I still have weak performance, am I missing something.
are you only running at 800mhz? download cpu-z and check the clock speed. I had to go into bios and manually set things to get it running at normal speeds
I had to do the same thing, then adjust the multiplier for each of the CPUs in the Nvidia control panel. The version of my BIOS is 5002, what version are you running? What scores or benchmarks do you use?
They may be running the benchmark in a different vesion of DirectX.
They may have a different operating system.
They may be running a different resolution.
I understand there are a lot of factors that could play into this? I posted to see if anyone had a similar situation. I've had you reply to my postings before and do not appreciate your condescending remarks, if you have anything to say that is helpful that would be greatly appreciated but please don't post just to post.
if you're clocking at 3.2 then I'll have to guess it's your gtx 275's. I scored 15k on 2.8ghz :| check out older drivers. I'd use the program 'driver sweep' to get rid of your current nvidia drivers. I have a radeon hd 4890, and the newer drivers are bad. Could be the same with gtx 275's since theyre older than the dx11 cards. good luck
It seems possible you are only getting results that would seem typical with a single GTX275.....; check each card individually in single GPU config....? Then double check all SLI options in drivers/BIOS, etc....
Thanks I found the indicators and I also figured out the low frame rate issue in FarCry 2. It was the profile, it was not setup for SLI. I assumed it would just take my global settings, but once I change it, framerates went up into the low to mid 70's
