3D Mark 11 scores

Hello, I got my first ever gaming pc put together, so I am a bit of a noob at this sort of thing, but I ran 3D mark 11 and was wondering if these scores were about were my system should be scoring because it says I am scoring low.

http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/4497078

The cards are EVGA 670 FTWs in SLI, CPU is the 3570k, and my mobo is the GA-z77x-UD5H and everything is at stock settings
(if you need this info).


But yea basically I am wondering if this is about were I should be scoring, and if not how I can fix it...



Also another little question. MY GPU at 100% load was running around 69-67c are these safe temps for my cards? And what would be a good temp under load for the CPU? I have a noctua NH D-14 cooling it.

Sorry for the probably nooby questions.

Thanks in advance for your replies.

No, because you're scoring around the same with 300+ other people.

Yea thats kinda where it confused me, because I was scoring with them, but it was still saying it should run better, and I thought maybe it was referring to the physics part or something.

Where does it say that? There will always be that thing that advertises the scan.

Under PC health check it says something like..


It seems your pc should be scoring higher, here are some suggestions to get more performance out of your pc. Then just says stuff like make sure no other applications are running and update drivers and what-not.

So yea it made me think that maybe I am scoring just barely into that bracket (12,000-14,000), while most of the other 300+ were scoring in the upper ranges (ex. 13,500-14,000), because there are also quite a few in the 14,000-16,000 range (266). Lol if that makes any sense.

It shouldn't be a problem.

You might want to check that your gpus are running at the correct clock speed, because in the link it says that you are running 705 core clock, while on newegg it says that the default clock is 915 with a boost up to 980.

Futuremark scans your PC right before benching, during that time the system is usually idling/downclocking. That's why many people's rigs will have their CPU running at idle states.

Hmm... good to know.

Yea I guess. I tried it out on Borderlands 2 (which I don't imagine to be very demanding anyways), but it ran it like it wasn't anything.

dude, your cpu score is killing you, my 2500k runs 22 FPS on the physics test while slock.

Any Ideas on what it could be? Because I have bumped into a problem. I downloaded Metro 2033, and while I realize this game is far more demanding than borderlands, I am getting relatively low FPS, like averaging 30 and sometimes dropping a little lower. I play at a resolution of 2560x1440, and I figured I would be able to run this game at better frames. Am I mistaken, or should I be able to run this game better? If so what could be the problem?

well my 7950 dips down to 30 at 1080, so either their is a driver problem or your having memory problems. have you ran the metro 2033 benchmark? that gives you great data to look at. also run afterburner and use the graph to make sure both gpus are running like they should
