Hey guys,

I just installed a new motherboard, the EVGA 780i motherboard.

I'm running my GTX 470 @ 815/1630 and my processor is stable and overclocked to 3.4GHz @ 1.4v

In 3DMark11 i'm getting P3781

And in Vantage I'm getting P15174

These scores are significantly lower than the scores in my sig, which was on an Asus P5K.

Is there any way to get back to those scores, short of doing a fresh reinstall?

I'm stumped. These scores are very low compared to what I had before.

I did notice that the scores were lower for both GPU and CPU in comparison to the scores in my sig.

Especially on the combined test and physics test in 3DMark11 it showed the biggest difference.

I'm not sure why it's scoring lower, considering i'm using the exact same clocks.

If anyone could help / point me in the right direction here I'd be grateful.

ok, i'll start overclocking the CPU now.

But why! why?! are the scores so different.

I have everything the same except for the motherboard!

The clean installation is the best way, you changed the mobo and Windos installed the proper drivers for your new mobo and the OS load without problems, but the old driver (old mobo drivers) still "installed" in the OS, that create a lot of garbage and affect the performance of your rig.

Would a system repair help much?

Do you think a repair windows might help fix this issue?

I don't think so, system repair looks for problems in the OS, and that isn't a problem that windows can identify, it's just garbage.

If you have your key, you can donwload from Internet the same version that you have and use your key for the clean installation, it's perfectly legal.

hmmm, I think I may have DVD's.

Where can I download Win 7 Home Premium x64?

If not I'll go to like staples or somewhere that has the DVD.

I can't post the site here since is agains the forum's rules, but you can use Google and ask him how download it.

Or if you have a friend with the same version, get borrowed and use it.

Ok so I re-installed Windows 7 Home Premium x64

And I'm getting P15021 in Vantage

Which is actually lower than my first post.

I was hitting P16xxx before so I really don't know why I'm scoring so low.

This is at 3.4GHz and 815/1630

EDIT: And in 3DMark11 I score P3707 Also lower than my first post.

Not sure why I'm scoring so low

Yeah, there's a difference of like 55Mhz, and i'm using the latest drivers.

I also noticed (and I made a thread about this) that I'm getting like 26GFLOPS and lower, now it's at 20GFLOPS and I'm at 3.6GHz.

I'm seriously going to go cry now.

There's something seriously wrong and I can't figure it out.

The driver should be the problem, if you see the results, the CPU get the same score, while the GPU scores are different.

Ok, and rise the core clock to the same as with your old mobo. Let me know the results.

I just ran driver sweeper in safe mode, and installed the 260.99 drivers.

This card i'm running can do a max of 815MHz / 1630 Mhz

The other card I am not currently running (the one that does 880MHz) because I'm waiting for my SLI bridge.

Let me run Vantage and 3DMark 11 now.

If scores improve, then you're right about the drivers being sucky, hehe.

Be right back
