Ok. So as some of you may have seen in another post of mine, I recently got my system up and running and one of the first things I did was OC/benchmark. At the moment im running:
Total clock: 2.42Ghz (210x11.5)
Voltages: 1.7V Mobo, 1.825Vcore, and 2.8V Dram
Ram Timings: 2.5-2-2-8

Sandra Lite 2005 benchmarks:
CPU Arithmetic(Top number) = 10,097 (21% increase from stock)
CPU Arithmetic(Bottomnumbe) = 3,892 (9% increase from stock)

CPU Multimedia(Top number) = 22,655 (21% increase from stock)
CPU Multimedia(Bottom number) = 24,130 (21% increase from stock)

Memory Bandwidth(Top number) = 3,224 (11% increase from stock)
Memory Bandwidth(Bottom number) = 3,031 (14% increase from stock)

3DMark03 benchmark:
7206 (5% increase from stock)

Prime95
Passed...alot.

Now, like I said, it's 2.42Ghz running 11.5x210, which imo isn't very good. I know I should be running a higher FSB, and I have been able to run a higher FSB, AND pass Prime95 for hours, but I randomly freeze up maybe twice a day while gaming.

I was going to add a couple pictures (not picture pictures, but screenshots...I don't have a digital camera
but hopefully I'll have a picture taking cell phone after Christmas, so I can post really crappy pics
)

Any suggestions, comments, or anything would be awesome!

THANKS!!

EDIT: Btw I havent overclocked my 6800 at all, and don't play to. I'm happy with that. Also, I'm planning on buying a 2600+ I step, is that a good idea or a bad one? Also also, I run my Volcano 12+ at 3500-3600rpms and it keeps my full load at about 44-46ish, which doesnt seem to bad to me.

Yes, I do believe those are doin not to shabby

Edit: Y don't you want to OC that 6800. They can take quite a but and it would boost your scores even more. It doesn't have to be hardcore or anything

Ya..I guess I'll OC the 6800, but not alot. Maybe like 10% or less, just to see what effect it has on my scores and gaming etc. If I killed it from OCing would they give me a new one? I mean...the OCing software came WITH the graphics card, so they know people are gonna OC em.

You can RMA it with no trouble. And I doubt you will kill it. Just find the max and keep it safely below. Take it a little at a time and no worries

not a very good 3dmark03 tbh 7206 is pretty low. You should be hitting at least 8000 stock. Have you got "fastwrites disabled" and all the other settings ?

You are getting decent scores, but I do agree that your 3dmark03 is lacking.

What drivers are you using??? If they're not 71.20's then you need to make the switch
. I'm getting 10000+ on stock 6800 with the 71.20s, and alot of other people with 6 series cards got like a 400 point increase from them.

Also, you are taking a major memory bandwidth hit by using 11.5 multi.

Try 11 or 12, but not anything with .5's

You're Vcore should be good for 200x12~210x12

Another thing, you have your Vcore set at 1.825, but whats it actually sitting at?
