i think there is something wrong with my video card. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/frown.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Frown"><br>
i have run 3dmark05 and i got 6023 3dmarks.... (both cpu and video cards overclocked)<br>
i shut down the pc and the next day i ran the test again... i got 4950 3dmarks when i have set it to the normal clock values i got only 4400 pts, and usually the normal was ~4700. i tried in many ways but i just couldn't get more than 4950. the thing is, when i enter the details page in 3dmark 2005 at vga core clock it reads... 11.3 mhz instead of 490 or so. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/eek.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="EEK!"><br>
could it be something with my video card? or some wrong settings?<br>
i forgot to mention i have reinstalled my windows few days before i ran the first test.<br>

You sure all overclocked settings were retained when you rebooted?

yes... in EXPERTool (gainward overclocking tool) and nvidia control panel it shows me good clocks... only 3dmark (05 and 06) shows 11.3 mhz vga core clock.

yeah... 3DMark often reads stuff wrong.. nothing to worry about there.<br><br>
Still is a headscratcher.<br><br>
Can you publish both scores in ORB?

I see you upgraded the nVidia drivers. Go back to the old ones... this is likely the cause.

no...the other scores are from a few months ago... there weren't the new nvidia drivers at that time

The latest score shows driver 9.4.1.7 (according to ORB). If I remember correctly, the older score had an 8.x.x.x version of the drivers.<br><br>
I have seen more cases that a newer driver results in dramatically lower scores. Try those older drivers again (unless my memory plays tricks on me and both have the 9.4.1.7 version of the drivers)
