Upgraded my 780i to a 790i Ultra... WHY???

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So with my 780i I was getting my X9650 stable at 4.53GHz OC with GPU's set at stock settings I was getting 3DMarks06: 21572. So I upgraded to the 790i Ultra and I'm not so happy with my results. I'm pretty much stuck at 4.20GHz mostly stable and can only get 3DMarks06 to 21397. Seems a bit backwards. Not sure if it's a Vista 32Bit issue, a mobo issue or BIOS settings issue. Can anyone share their 790i Ultra BIOS settings? See my signature for my system specs.

Thanks in advance!

"only 21,397"? that is REALLY HIGH! maybe your new ddr3 is worse at ocing than your old ddr2? what type of ddr2 did you have? if it was micron d9, that could be why. and make sure you have the latest bios. i just noticed, your scores not even 200 points lower, thats not much, my score varies more than that every time. ive got as low as 1,000 points lower than the score i have posted with the same settings once.

That was a typeo I have the Intel Core Extreme QX9650. I had at one point 1600MHz DDR3 but seemed to not do as good and the latency was higher at 9-9-9-24, my 1333MHz is 7-7-7-20. I am currently using OCZ Platinum DDR3 1333MHz 7-7-7-20. Maybe I should change back to a higher speed but with lower (or higher) latency such as 9-9-9-24. Not sure ;} It also seems like I hae to hae my lotages really high jsut to get a good boot into Vista 32bit. That's why I'd like to see someone elses BIOS settings for this board/processor combo.
