3dmark

Recommended Posts

I have a hard time believing that a new rig like i have cannot get more than 2 frames a second on the second blimp test. I am running @2500MHZ CPU and 250FSB @ 1T.

HTT ratio is at 4 and my system is stable and has not crashed, i run 3dmark and i get to the second blimp test and my framerates are at 2 and 1 on a brand new BFG 7800 GT. Is there something not right or is the test that hard to do, i expected it to be tough but its hard to let it ride the rest of the test when it chokes like that.

 

I should mention i set affinity to cpu 1

 

any advice would be nice, maybe i have overlooked something.

Nope no problem there. The second round of test is srictly cpu limited. You can OC untill your hearts content and will not get much more on that portion of the test :)

I actually use that second test as a quick indicator of whether I've overclocked the cpu beyond stability. If I have, the second blimp won't even run :O , if it's stable I get a blistering 1-2fps....
