Put together last weekend, I think I am getting low performance based on what I have seen around here. Graphics card is softmodded to a 6970 and processor is overclocked with OC Genie.

3D Mark scores
What could be causing me to get such low results? :pfff:

Not sure if the link you gave me is to your results but the score is almost 14,000 so I don't think that is low.

EDIT: The 3DMark Scores link I mean and not the pictures.

EDIT2: Nevermind I thought 14k was a high score but I researched and it isn't

Why are you using 3dmark06? This is 2011, try 3dmark11 or 3dmark Vantage.

It seems a bit low to me, but I have not seen any other 2500K/6970 benchmarks to compare with.

I ran Geekbench (lol, never heard of before) I scored 5998 with a i3-2100/5850 all stock clocks and a old 7200rpm hdd.

2nd run scored 6061.

Oh I didn't realize I was using an outdated version.
3D Mark 11 Score
The 3D Mark 11 scores seem to be quite a bit higher, but that still doesn't explain the low Geekbench score.
