I just ran Passmark on my rig and got really low scores. My Pc is in high performance. Its an i7 960 3.21ghz
12gb ram
HD6970 HisQ 2GB

Passmark score of 1302.2 Something is definitely wrong...

Just because you have 12GB of RAM does not mean that you have 12GB of good/fast RAM. What is the RAM speed and CAS Latency?

I expected a much higher score than this, its terrible. Holy hell...Ill have to buy all new ram. This rig should score immensely higher than that.

Supported Frequencies : 381 MHz,
CAS Latency (tCL) : 5 clocks @ 38
RAS to CAS (tRCD) : 5 clocks @ 38
RAS Precharge (tRP) : 5 clocks @
Cycle Time (tRAS) : 14 clocks @ 3
Min TRC : 19 clocks @ 381 MHz, 23


Type : DDR3-SDRAM PC3-10700 (667
Format : UDIMM (133.35 x 15)

Size : 2048 MB (1 ranks, 8 banks


Why is my CPU mark Half what it should be? Its rated 6K on the comparison chart and mine is barley over 3K...what in the world is going on

That sounds about right. I would look into getting some better RAM.

decent ram( not great _) can drop the CPU score by 50% ???

It looks like it is recognizing the 12gb ram but, It says usable 3gb. Did you check the bios to see if the ram is recognized. Also, I'm not sure of this but and I'm no expert but, long time ago when I had 32bit win7, I had 8gb ram, said only 3gb was usable aswel. I wonder if its a windows error since its not 64bit...

yea i think its the 32 bit win7 as well switch to a 64 bit and i think you will get a better passmark

Run different benchmarks, not passmark.

what kind of fool would limit the OS to X amount of ram memory? Seriously...I had no idea x32 did that. I'm going to have to upgrade just to get full use of my pc lol...how sad. My 3dmark scores were immensely low as well. Is that one junk as well?
