I have Dell Dimension E520 QX6800 @ 3.72 GHz. with ATI R9-285 ITX video card. Due to the locked BIOS my computer boots at 2.93GHz. and I turn on my overclock in Windows.
My scores in 3Dmark 06, 11, and Firestrike all scale up nicely, both GPU scores and physics scores. going from 2.93 to 3.72 GHz.
In 3Dmak 06-2.93GHz. score 15890, 3.72GHz. score 20202 .
But in Unigine Heaven, and Valley I lose from 6-10 FPS when I overclock. I've raised volts to see if it was unstable but no cure.
I could see if the scores were the same because it's a GPU test but I don't see why they would drop like that. Any ideas?
