I am running a Northwood Pentium 4 3.00Ghz (I think it's weak) and I cannot do any overclocking. The motherboard itself is locked and the bios doesn't allow me to change the CPU settings. But I think my scores can be higher. Here are some reasons why I think my scores are pretty low.
1) A lot of junk on this computer. I need to reformat this computer badly. I'm waiting for my laCiE Drive!
2) Everything is still in stock speeds except the unlocked 16 pipelines.
3) Cooling is an issue. Maybe the heat is slowing down my videocard? Oh, I just ordered my Arctic Cooler yesterday from newEgg! If i can cool this thing, very hot indeed, I can improve efficiency and overclock it.
I will be testing my scores once again. And i'll post the results again later.
