Wow? Really really low aqua mark?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
My aqua mark score is like 30k!! Is it just me or is that a tad low? I'm running only one stick of 512 ram, unlike the 1024 it says in my sig because one stick couldn't run as high as the other. Shouldn't I be getting a bit higher? Currently at 278X9 for 2.5 ghz and rams at 180 fsb untill the xp120 arrives, then It'll be at 200 and the cpu at 2.7 ghz. Still isn't this a bit low? My card's at 450/650 for quiet fan speeds, but could this be why? Both my video card and cpu score around 4k. Blah, Any hints/tips as to what I could do to increase my score? I recall pcnerd hitting like 70-90k *forgot what it was, long time ago* or something with a 6600 and the same proc as me except at a higher speed. Could this problem be all ram related?

Altough your score is low you obviously have a good spec system. Aqua mark does run on older sofware than some of the new 3d mark software and it is unwise in generall to base the quality of your spec on aqua it has been known to give seemingly bad results. the aqua software seems to favour various hardware devices and not others and this doesnt mean that one is worse than the other. Try using the new verion of 3d mark and see if your score is better...

Haha..Ok..now ***? I now get like 50K on this dumb test with just my graphics overclocked to 450/1.4ghz. FYI, @ that speed my card has no artifacts or instability whatsoever.
