Hmm, something is obviously wrong with my SSD. Or perhaps it's because my current OC isn't stable because of that 4x1GB memory...
And I just have 1 ATI 4870 installed at the moment.

But anyway, here's my PCMark7 score: http://3dmark.com/pcm7/36996
A whamming total of 3356...
Hmpf... I am disappointed smile.gif

And that's a true story!

Test system:
Asus P5Q Pro Turbo
Q9650@4140MHz
2x2GB + 2x1GB Crucial Ballistix PC6400 4-4-4-12-2.0v@920MHz 5-5-5-15-1.94v
XFX GTX 260 Core 216@702/1404/2430
Intel X25 80GB Gen.2 SSD
Nice score there turrican9!

2x2GB + 2x1GB

This combo of ram & your testing results is the reason I tried my set of
Corsair XMS2 TWIN2X2048-6400C4 with my G.Skill set...so thanks for that
as they work together really, really well!

Looks like you've been seduced by the dark side of the overclocking world...this only gets worse too as time goes on!!! LOL
You should bench your system at stock settings & look at the score!
Much, much lower...

From my testing the P5Q Pro Turbo hates 4x2GB RAM. 4x2GB gives no overclock. Tried two different kits. Both is on it's QVL and overclocks just nicely when using 2x2GB. However, I've found that using a 2x2GB + 2x1GB configuration overclocks nearly as good as 2x2GB in this board.

In my P5Q-E this 6GB config overclocks to the excact same as 2x2GB. Using 4x2GB in that board and you are stuck at 1:1. But 900MHz + is no problem. So P5Q-E is handling mem better VS P5Q Pro Turbo.

Also remember that 2x1GB kit are the excact same mem as the 2x2GB kit. Only the 2x1GB ones are single sided. But I've found that even when using all double sided, 6GB config is almost as easy on the motherboard as 2x2GB.

Glad it worked for you man !

Just like the first Crysis games, it is very little CPU dependant. So no surprise. My Sandy is at 4.5GHz and GTX 570 at the usual 850/1700/2000. Appart from the max FPS there is little difference VS yours results.

Yea its extremely stable & the only thing I had to change was just bumping up the DRAM voltage a bit to 1.240v as the Corsair is natively a 800MHz kit running @ 1002MHz, so it needed the little extra to be totally stable.

Hey King T, speaking of Crysis benchmarking...
Have you tried the Xtreme-G Nvidia drivers?
I just love them for their performance, stability & FPS in my games & they ALWAYS score higher in 3DMark scores! Their newest release v270.61 is their best yet too! [23591 Vantage score]

You can get them here---> Tweakforce.com - Xtreme-G Nvidia Drivers
