Hi everyone. I just put together a new system with an i5-3570k. I have ran 3DMark 11 (Performance mode, with CPU at stock speed) multiple times and the physics score of the cpu has been pretty consistent in the 6600 - 6700ish. That score seems kind of low compare to what I've seen on other websites, which is around the mid 7000's. Here is something I don't understand. On the 3DMARK11 score page, it shows that the processor clock is only 1601 Mhz, which is weird because in the BIOS the frequency is around 3.4 Ghz, and can be boost up to 3.8 Ghz.

Also something weird happened. There are 2 occasions where the physics score dropped considerably by 600 points, to low 6000's. The graphics score stays about the same. But as soon as I restart the system, score go back up again.

I haven't overclock the CPU yet, all I've done was setting the Intel Turbo Boost mode to "Enabled" from the default "Auto", through the BIOS. Could it be that I am running Win8 pro 64 bit? Could I have maybe damaged the CPU or the pins when installing? But the computer boots and runs smoothly.

FYI, CPU temp never goes above 65 c when running Prime95 and gaming.

Here is the rest of my specs :

i5-3570k
HD 7950 OC to 950 Mhz
mobo: Gigabytes Z77X-UD3H
8 gb ram (DDR3-1600 (PC3 12800) )
HDD 1TB
Windows 8 pro 64-bit

Go into the bios and change that multiplier to 32 then rerun your stats.

Came across this thread chasing down an exact same problem. In case you never figured it out...

http://support.futuremark.com/futuremark/topics/cpu_and...

Turns out the problem is on Futuremark's side and not the user's end.

I lost a whole day troubleshooting for nothing...maybe it will save the next person who stumbles on this some wasted time.

Yes your Cpu is proberly running at it´s right speeds when it is performing - when it´s idle Intels Speedstep slows

down to 1600 mhz which is the speed in powersaving mode. The cpu is in Power save mode when 3dmark is

scanning the hardware and therefore reporting speed at 1600 mhz - and allso when you check Cpu-z.

Disable Speedstep and other powersave features (C1 - C6) to run full speed in idle but be aware that higher

temperatures will occur. Though i´m not sure your score will go up.
