First 3D Mark vantage Scores

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Just got a new rig and thought that i'd better start benching it, but im a total noob at it so i'd appreciate some feed back. First time I ran it I got a "H" score of some where in the 16000's, a CPU score somewhere in the 20,000'd and a GPU score somewhere in the 15500's. That was without overclocking my GPU and with a CPU clock of ~3.4Ghz (160 x 21). Then I overclocked my CPU to ~4.0 (180x22) and my GPU to 1450 Mclk and 950 Core Clk. But my scores dropped. Why did this happen?

Did you run it on the same setting? There are multiple test levels on 3d mark vantage. The "standard" is the Performance test (Pxxxxx would be your score) with your rig, you should get between a p20000 and a p27000.

Yeah, I did high settings both times. I expected my CPU score to rise when overclocked but it actually dropped about 3000 points.

well, go run it again under performance, then return it to stock and run performance again.
