Extremly Low Physics Score on 3Dmark 11

I just took a test using 3Dmark 11 and got a great graphics score but horrendous physics score.

Graphics: 11169
Physics: 843

GPU: MSI GTX680 Lightning
CPU: i7-3820

I have tested it twice; both with similar results.

Around 6 months ago I tested and got in the mid 8000s for physics, and the only thing that has changed since then was upgrading to a GTX680.

Any ideas? I was sure to close all unnecessary programs, and I am virus free (as far as I am aware of).

What's your PSU wattage? And what are your CPU temps while performing the test? Also I assume you're on the standard performance benchmark? Correct? Sounds like something to do with cooling or power, I doubt the CPU is the issue, have you overclocked it?

Try this too:

i never ran those benchmarks but did you set the physx to max in the nvidia control panel?

Hello. Same thing happened to me but I managed to fix it. I simply unticked compatability mode, ran the test and now it works just fine. Why it was ticked to begin with I dont know.

Windforce GTX 680 oc.
i7 3770K No oc.
