Let us know how things go, and check to make sure good airflow is getting into the case as others have said.

Alright guys, finished doing a full reformat and ran another test of 3dmark11 right after I installed all of the drivers. Unfortunately, it is still testing really low and I tried my best to make sure all of my drivers are up to date and installed correctly. Does this just mean it is a hardware problem?

Here is a link to the results of my newest 3dmark11 test:

I am probably going to just buy a AMD Phenom II X4 965 which is a processor that one of my friends has. He is running it with a radeon 6850 hd as well and is having no problems. Many people here have suggested that I should update my power supply as well and I might just throw in an extra $100 for a good Corsair one. Anyone have any final suggestions?

You shouldn't have to spend more than 60 on a new power supply, Newegg has a deal for a Corsair 600w for 49.99 after rebate. It doesn't have to be a Corsair, just make sure it's a reputable brand. Also as others have suggested you may want to report your temps to us using a program like realtemp to make sure you aren't experiencing some kind of thermal throttling.

Edit: Also plenty of people buy prebuilt rigs before they get into hardcore building, so don't listen to any haters. Upgrading is a good way to become more familiar with the components and more comfortable messing around in your computer's guts so you can build your own next time biggrin.gif

I am not sure if anyone actually looked at the scores he posted... BUT:

Core clock
300 MHz
Memory clock
300 MHz


There is your problem right there. Stock is 775/1000 for a reference 6850.

You must have set your clock speeds wrong and have something that is not allowing them to be raised up. Verify your settings / reset your settings.

Without having your clock speeds correct, that would be the reason why your score is so low.

Best of luck!

But seriously, you should never buy from any pre built website, keep in mind for next time.
But as for your problem, I would try a full reformat to windows 7, install all latest drivers online not from CD's to insure you have newest version.

There are some people that do great custom builds. The shop I work at does custom builds for people, we don't often to "gaming" rigs but when we do they are as awesome as the money will allow.

One of our higher end gaming PC's was as follows:
i7-2600k
Noctua NH-C14
Asus P8P67 Pro
4x4GB DDR3-1600 C8 (our supplier All Components supplied RAM to our specs in regards to timings)
Antec High Current Pro 850watt psu
OCZ Vertex 3 240GB SSD
Western Digital 2TB Black
Crossfire MSI 6950 Twin Frozr
Corsair Graphite CC600T
BDRW, Xonar Essence XT

The machine was clocked at 4.2Ghz, and the gpu's were overclocked as well although I don't remember the exact clocks. All under warranty. So they aren't all bad.

I learned after throwing away thousands of $ on pre-built hardware that self built is the way to go. Lots of people (I imagine) are put off by one of either 2 things. First is the obvious sea of cables and plugs involved and second would be getting into the BIOS and actually getting the machine running once it is finished. My last pre-built purchase was an Asus RoG laptop that altogether cost me about $1500 a year ago. A few months ago as I awaited my refund from the tax man (My dad coincidentally WAS the tax man) I caught myself looking at "gaming" laptops once again and thought to myself, "This time I'm blowing $2000 on a BEAST of a laptop that will run anything". This little voice in the back of my head (he was being constructive for once) told me, "You idiot! Your smart enough to put the right shoe on the right foot why not build one this time?" Now I fell into the second group when it came to my reluctance to build. Having read so many horror stories of bricked boards from BIOS updates gone wrong I was scared to death I was going to wind up taking a non functional PC to a local shop to get it sorted out. Don't you know they'd be in tears with laughter too. BUT, mechanical skills and tool handling ability (stop that thought right there) Bullet has in droves so I took the plunge. I watched that "building a PC" video from Newegg and when I realized I knew all that already (and was even catching his mistakes)I turned it off after 10 minutes and started the build. 3 hours later I was installing Windows 7 and downloading update after update after update....... Temps are excellent, framerates are incredible plus the pride and satisfaction makes it all worthwhile. Oh, and knifing my Alienware owning clanmates in a knife/pistol match is the icing on the cake.

How do I get to the place where I can fix this problem and adjust my clock speeds? I would assume it is somewhere in my BIOS setup but looking around in there is a little complicated for me without any guidance.

I also have seemed to root the problem down to my nForce chipset drivers. If I can find the right download for the right driver then it might help me fix the problem. However, I have been spending the last half hour or so trying to figure out which nForce series my computer has and the most information I have found out by using Aida64 is that the BUS type is an AMD K15 and "NVIDIA nForce Serial ATA Controller" is the driver I need to update. I am currently uninstalling all of my NVIDIA software and reinstalling them using a link to the drivers that my motherboard requires that was linked earlier in this thread.
