E6700 seems slow, your opinion?

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
All,

Here is my very latest OC, settings, and benchmarks. I am looking for feedback, I really thought that this system would (crank- so to speak).

It seems slower to me than I thought it would be, while booting it takes 7 bars of the Windows XP screen before booting into Windows . I heard of people with the similar system taking only 1 or 2 bars. ( Your thoughts?)

My latest settings are:

CPU Freq.-400 x 8 = 3200 MHz.
Vcore= 1.45v
FSB Speed- 1066 MHz.

Memory- DDR2 800 MHz.
Voltage- 2.15v
NB Vcore- 1.45v
1:1 Ratio with timings set at 4-5-4-15-4-42-10-10-10-10

Benchmarks and scores,

3D Mark 06- 4976
Super Pi- 32M, 15min. 34 sec.
Nuclearus MC- 10161 Mark

Intel TAT Readings, Idle- 41c. & 100% Load- 60c.

wow that is slow. i'm getting 16 secs (1M) on my E6600 at 3.3Ghz and 7150 on 3dmark06. you should get higher since you have a x1900xtx.

I don't pretend to know how 3dMark works since I don't play too much with benchmarks, so I can't explain why there is such a vast difference between your two systems....they appear almost identical except for the CPU and board. Supposedly the P5B has some straps that can actually make faster FSB work slower.......BTW, your FSB is 1600 at current settings, not 1066

Try setting your system to 355 FSB and a x9 multi and run the same benchmarks. That will be the same clock speed with lower FSB and see if it changes the results.....

And it's hard to compare your 16sec 1M run to his 32M run


As for the window bar load up, that has a lot to do with Windows, not just the system. You can try to streamline what Windows loads up and does at startup and it will speed up your load times there.

Well,

I tried the different settings, and I gained 2 points in 3D MARK 06.

Something just doesn't seem right to me when others with the same specs are getting 6 and 7 thousand scores.

BTW, Here are some pics of my system, if anyone is interested.

The first thing I see when looking at the pics is it does not appear you have your ram running in dual channel. I cant say for sure where your mobo is concerned, but in most cases ram should be in corresponding color slots, it appears you have one gold and one black open, which means the ram you have installed is in a gold and black slot. Try moving the ram to the same color slots (all gold or all black) and then try your benchmarks again.

have you run spybot? do you have a virus scanner?

i am thinking with your long load times it's a problem with too many windows aps, and not your box.

if you havent' already... download spybot search and destroy and run that. (after updates), and get a virus scanner, (my mobo came with one... o_O).

And if you have a virus scanner running in the backround, pull the internets out, shut it down, then run your benchies, virus scanners take a lot of cpu power. then you can reload the scanner and put your internet cable back in.


Just some thoughts.

Well,

I changed the memory sticks, so now they are both in the gold slots. (It did however say in the ASUS Mo Bo owners manual that it doesn't matter wich slots they are in.)

I downloaded and installed the latest catalyst drvers from ATI.

I also downloaded and ran spybot, it found a few problems and I corrected them.

Here are the latest 3D Mark 06 test results.

( WOW, I gained 7 whole points!)

Ok now im getting curious...can you post CPUz shots of the CPU and mem settings? Also what driver are you running for your ATI cards...my scores on my 2 - 7900gts where in the 11,000 range...
