(edit: I see mike and dph mentioned this already wink.gif ) I see you're on x79, make sure you have the patch that enabled pci express 3.0. Also, the latest drivers increase 3dmark11 scores a lot so make sure you have the latest beta driver, that should you a lot.

ive just noticed that after running 5 or so runs of 3DMark11 that I will have a LOT of redundant futuremark processes running for some reason. Ill take a screenshot when i do more runs in a little bit...
i thought i already had a ss but i guess i forgot to save it

nevermind doing 5 runs... this is after only one 3Dmark11 run:
(click picture once.. then right click picture and choose "view image" to see in full size)
338

what the *$&*%&$%*&$ ???

I just got my RIVE and 3930k in the mail today, installing tomorrow. Are all x79 boards requiring the patch?

Do scores get progressively lower as more and more of those processes are running? Not because of the CPU load I mean, but just on the software side of things wondering if 3dMark11 shows any symptoms after having so many duplicate processes running.

**edit: of course i wouldnt call them and be like "uhh some guy on the forum got a $25 refund for his lightning and i want one too!" You need to call and make your case, get a little angry but still be respectful, and see what theyll do to help

I'm not looking to get any money from Newegg. They are a great online vendor. MSI manufactured the GPU, printed the boxes, shipped them across the ocean, and made false claimed about voltage... Not Newegg. You've shot the messenger.

Well in this case I can't blame MichaelRW for it. I've done a TON of business with newegg over the years, dating back at least 10 years. Basically, I have done most of my computer upgrades through them and I have little doubt that the situation is similar for Mike - so I view 25$ as a symbol of customer appreciation, even though it doesn't directly involve newegg. Also, I do have some grievances with newegg because LATELY they have been selling used cards as new, which is obviously a sh**** thing to do to customers. With all of this said, i'm not asking for any money from newegg because i'm 100% satisfied with my purchase - and I get nearly 1.27V on my cards with BIOS2. I don't have software voltage, but the cards do have more legs than other cards do in terms of voltage (and software voltage coming sometime in the future). While the whole delay on software voltage sucks, I do think the voltage while using BIOS2 may be overlooked by some. I really like having that along with no kepler throttle (which no other 680 on the market has). Hopefully, MSI will get this mess straightened out soon. I think they were well intentioned with getting these lightnings to market, but perhaps they rushed this aspect of software support before it was ready...

yeah maybe. i didnt call them looking for a handout. if they want to offer me something, as someone who spends literally thousands of dollars on their company, i will certainly not turn it down.

i havent noticed anything in terms of dropping scores, but its just weird that there are SO MANY of these processes open... its very weird.

Just Cause 2 benchmarks (Desert Sunrise level, 4xAA, 16xAF, everything else max, vsync off)

stock 1202MHz:
338

1345MHz/+450
338

Bosniac, I think a better benchmark comparison would be with the CUDA features turned off (the last 3 settings). Most AMD users benchmark this game and they don't have those settings, so disabling those is a more apples to apples comparison. I've also found that enabling PHYSX or CUDA features will sometimes cause clockspeeds to fluctuate in odd ways, which doesn't happen otherwise.

Thats just my personal preference though, i've always preferred leaving physx off for benchmark comparisons
