GTX 560 in 3Dmark 11

Hey guys, for the longest time now when running auto-detect feature on games it would set graphics to high or ultra high, but those settings would never be good for me cause i would get bad framerate and high temperatures.
So today i ran 3Dmark 11.
I got 2170 in the "graphics score", looking up online it seems that the score should be twice bigger for this card.
So i'm asking: what's wrong?

  1. update your drivers and also check your drivers are running properly.

    your card should have the memory clock of around 4000 MHz,your is half of it. check your nvidia control panel for it.

    also check if you have plugged your card to the 1st pci-e slot.

    your card seems to be badly bottle necked by memory bandwidth
  2. Here's what nvidia control panel tells me:
    NVIDIA System Information report created on: 02/13/2013 17:54:39

  3. download and install the latest drivers after you make a complete sweep of the present drivers using driver sweeper in safe mode.

    the rest looks fine now. as well as your memory rate(4020 MHz)

    also update the bios of the mobo and the card
  4. Is it possible that the GPU is somehow defected?
  5. if you have done everything else that I have mentioned above,then do take it into consideration that your card might be damaged.
