I5-2500k Low Performance Tags: CPUs Performance Intel i5 Last response: July 30, 2011 9:23 AM in CPUs Share LasT July 30, 2011 2:59:09 AM So I did the 3DMark 11 Performance test today and my results are here: http://3dmark.com/3dm11/1591736;jsessionid=1ov2qljn9lty5?show_ads=true&page=%2F3dm11%2F1591736%3Fkey%3DhWz8yTBnK3hXencTMrH2jdHMjJUMAD My physics score seems extremely low. I haven't overlcocked my CPU yet but should it still be much higher even though its stock? Everything else seems fine except for the physics score and combined score. Any ideas?

I just reseated the cooler and I'll do another test once I'm done cleaning up my case. I'll make sure to post my results after to see if that fixed the problem. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
