My Scores seem a few points low? - Page 2

I think he work with the subtimmings in the memory.The p5n32 love tight subtimmings.

Ooops, I missed that part. In that case I'd say that your overclock either you CPU:RAM ratio isn't optimal, or your memory timeings are too loose. Though another reason could be that your overclock isn't as stable as you thought it was. Have you ever run dual Orthos for at least two hours or do you just make sure it passes a quick 3DMark run to confirm stability?

I've also seen cases where the shader clock on 8800 GPU's can bring down the score dramatically if it isn't set to the appropriate speed to keep up with the Core and RAM clocks. You can manually set core/shader/ram clocks by flashing your BIOS with one modded in NiBiTor. That's what I did to my 8800GTS cards

Not really into voiding my warranty on my cards.

To test my overclock stability I ran 2x Orthos for 5 hours. My FSB is at 1280, and my Ram is at 1066 5-5-5-15 (stock). Setting them to sync mode 1:1 lowers my scores even more, even if I set 3-3-3-7 timings.

Since its so few points I'd probably just put it down to the motherboard.

From what I read on Guru3D.com, the shader clock is linked to the GPU with a certain multiplier. Up the GPU and the shader follows.

And Rivatuner is just fine for overclocking. No need for BIOS flashing.

Perhaps running 4 RAM DIMM's is hogging the memory bandwidth then. See what kind of scores you get with just two DIMM's in your system.

Well there's no option if you use x64 Vista like me. Also I'll point out that although the Shader clocks are increased dynamically when you increase Core clocks with software, there is a certain ratio to follow. In my opinion the simplest way of setting the exact Shader clocks you want is with a BIOS flash, which is incredibly easy to do.
