Significant decrease is benchmarks switching mobos

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

Building my rig I initially had a sabertooth p67 to run my 2600k. The cpu benchmarked in Passmark awesomely at 11000+ at stock. Long story short the sabertooth bit the dust after a month, so I took it back to Fry's to get it replaced. Being Fry's they were of course out of the Sabertooth, so I just went with MSI's Z68a-GD65 gen 3. Now my cpu is benchmarking significantly slower in passmark, around 9600. Any ideas? Could the mobo failure have affected my cpu adversely? Does the mobo really make that much of a difference?

Also, I'm not sure of the accuracy of passmark but I heard it's alright. For reference I'm getting 78 GFlops on IBT linpack on high on the MSI.
Ran SiSandra, and the results were ...disappointing to say the least, but I heard sisandra was crap

Thanks!
