I set my physics to GTX680 in nvidia control panel. Maybe its the downclocking of my cpu because i do notice when i did a windowed mode run it would use 99% gpu usage but cpu remained at 1600MHz. Now and then it would jump to 4800MHz. Sigh, already found a downfall with offset voltage. Fixed voltage and All C states disabled is the way to go really. Will bench another time though

In the benchmark all physix are run from cpu, you can also go to control panel, power options, performance, disable core parking, disable all unneeded processes, check on HWBOT for scores of similar systems to get an idea where you should be. If you check your graphic's score it is higher than the one you referenced

@CryptiK How is your scores soo high? i've got a 2500k @4.8Ghz and your score walks all over mine. Though i couldn't get mem over 730, with a decent core. Had aux on +0 and mem on +10 atleast. What is recommended for aux for stability and good bench runs?

Physics tests in 3dMark11 is run on the CPU. Your Physics score is right around where mine was when I had my 2500k at 4.8Ghz. Yes, you should do a reboot before testing and close all non-essential processes in the Task Manager. Also reboot every few tests as 3dMark11's processes seem to keep building up in the background after running multiple tests, at least if I remember correctly (or, you can probably just close them through the Task Manager as well). Also, RAM plays a larger role in generic benches than games. I don't know how much you have or what speed it's running at, but as mrTOOshort and a few others helped me out with it, and RAM makes a relatively big difference. For example, my 3930k @ 5Ghz was showing up as getting about 16,500 in the Physics tests in everyone's results I was looking at, but I could only get up to 14,500 with mine at that speed. I think I had 2 sticks of 2GB 1600mhz RAM at the time (dual-channel). When I upgraded, I had 4 sticks of RAM, running quad-channel. Going from dual to quad-channel brought my Physics score up an entire 1,000 points. Then I overclocked the new RAM from 1600mhz to 2133mhz, and gained another 1,000 points. Now I was up to par. So, whatever RAM you have, at least overclock it and you'll gain some points in the Physics department.

Graphics score seems about right. Mine is always lower than what other people are running, even though I'm using slightly higher clocks. I haven't benched in a while, so I haven't tried yet, but aside from the standard -reboot, close all non-essential processes-, it was brought up by DJRamses that going into Inspector and adjusting the LOD makes a very noticeable difference. 700 points on the Graphics Score actually. Damn I gotta try that. Maybe that's why my score is always lower than most? A lot of people adjust the LOD? 1480mhz/7200mhz and I only run just over 13,000 Graphics Score. +700 points would bring me up quite a bit. I'll have to try the next time it stops snowing here frown.gif Got the below-freezing temps I want, but I can't get it to stop snowing.

Never knew about LOD in 3dmark 11, might have to break my person best scores again! thumb.gif

Thanks DJ!

Thanks for the tips. I'll try again soon but my ram, i cant overclock to save my life, that's the only thing that's not OC, haha not that much can be OC, I never restarted pc and done like 5runs after seeing mem can be OC quite nicely. Had to get excited:)

i never adjusted anything just hit performance and sit back, thumbs crossed hoping i dont see : nvidia display driver has stopped working. . . WORST. But i'm not going to worry with that nvidia inspecter. Benching for the fun. Damn people here have high scores and it always feels like i'm soo close, off by a 100 or a few more but every run i hardly see +/- 10 difference haha. Addition. SAD

Yeah hexcore and fast low latency ram I guess is the only difference. I have many kits of Eplida Hypers (Corsair Dominator 1866 CL7/2000 CL8) from back before ram turned to absolute crap, so it pumps. I am a bit of a ram fan I guess. Even at 4GHz on the CPU it scores 113XX in performance.

I actually get a bit of a kick out of how competitive my rig still is against guys that have upgraded multiple times since I did, even the IVY cpu's are just ahead unless they are up over 4.8GHz or so.
