Weird Benchmarks

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi Folks,

I had this in another thread but I think it went dead some time ago. Wondering about some benchmarks I did with PCMark vantage. I had my BE 955 OC'd @ 3.6ghz and got a score of 8999 PCMarks, then continued and OC'd to 4ghz (only other setting I changed other than multiplier was the voltage, went from stock to 1.4v) and my bench score dropped to around 8700PCMark. I've ran the benchmark a couple of times at 4ghz, but this seems to be the same result I get each time (or at least quite similar, nothing close to 9000). I was wondering why I might see a drop in my benchmarks with higher clock speeds.

Thanks for your help,

Hmmm... strange. Unfortunately I've no experience with PCMark Vantage, but did you try running other benchmark utilities like 3DMark Vantage or 3DMark11 at 4GHz?
