Are improvements possible?


Recommended Posts

I've been tweaking my system the past few days. I can get 3609 3dmarks in 3dMark05 with the settings in my signiture. Is this a respectable number given my specs?

 

Thanks.

We have kinda similar graphics cards. Have you tried OC'ing? Its sure to raise your score. I'm not crazy about my score but I haven't had the chance to spend some QT with my rig and see how high I can OC it. Maybe this weekend...........

 

Good luck with your score!

Thanks Guys,

 

I installed 6.66 NForce drivers, reverted back to MS IDE drivers, defraged and saw a slight improvement to 3620.

 

I guess that I cant complain seeing that most people I know with the same setup from different manufacturers get scores in the 3500 area.

 

I am waiting for my Zalman VF700-Cu and Zalman CNPS7000B-Cu to start overclocking. I dont like using stock coolers, esp the noisy XFX cooler!

 

My video card has plently of OC headroom, 554/1130 max. Quite impressive for a stock cooler. I cant wait to see what happens with the VF700.

 

As to my CPU, I am inexperienced with overclocking. From little I have done I realise that the 310 bios wasnt good to my memory. I think it was RGone who tested some non-PRO memory with the 'fixed 704-2BT' bios and got some amazing results.
