Firestrike..."TIME MEASURING INACCURATE. RESULTS ..."

What causes this? I have been getting this error sporadically lately. It seems to happen more often than not when I am trying to push my GTX 970 past ~1525MHz. My rig details are in my sig...i7 2700k @ 4.8GHz and I use MSI afterburner to manage my GTX 970.

So, no one else has experience with this? Is there somewhere else I should be asking this?

This i think occurs because some thing messed up your date and time settings. Has happened with others in the past and they had to re-install windows as once it comes, it stays like that. It hasn't affected me but i read a few others facing similar issues on this forum

I think it is more OS related than hardware. I get the same error when I run the test under the windows 10 preview.

Thanks for the responses guys. It is just so weird that it is sporadic. I have been thinking about going to Windows 8.1...maybe this is the push I needed to make the leap.

Sorry I'm late to the party. But I'll post this for anyone searching in the future. This drove me crazy for the longest time. What I finally figured out (if you have the free version of 3d Mark), is that you can't skip the demo at the beginning. If you skip demo to go into benchmark you will get the time measurement error. If you let the demo run, then the benchmark, you should get a valid result. I guess it knows how long it should take to run demo and bench and if it is shorter it figures you're messing with the benchmark to get a better score. Hope this helps.

That makes some sense but I'm not sure that's what is causing most of the issues. I was able to benchmark fine with my 760 but after i put in my 980 Ti it started giving me errors like that and I'm not skipping the demo. It did it on a fresh install of windows 7 ultimate and a clean install of 3D Mark. I've noticed it happens most when i run 3D Mark off a different hard drive than my C: drive is on.
