Those are some EXCELLENT scores you've got! I don't have anything ram wise that I can turn up to a higher speed with having the other settings still clocked to what they are. I may pick up some 1066 ram (from GEIL of course) and that'll let me clock even higher without having to sacrifice any of the other clocks just to get the ram higher (highest I've went by itself is 1224Mhz).
I wonder how close I can get to your scores if I add some faster ram to the system. I know I won't be able to get your exact numbers due to the fact I'm using 3Ghz and you're far higher at 3.54Ghz but I should be able to come close. The everest numbers I believe I can beat (read and copy speeds), and maybe some of the CPU tests as well...that is a hard bit to bite off though because you're clocked higher than the stock 3.2Ghz model I used for comparison.
Also most people with your processor don't usually get above 3.4Ghz (and some can't get that stable) so I guess we're both in the same boat. Once the bios things get fixed I'm extremely confident I can boot to higher than 3Ghz (I'm not limited to that now that's just what I use...I've done 3.125Ghz on low volts too).
Thanks for the reply and especially for the comparison numbers (your clocked higher than the 3.5Ghz 6400 from the test and have faster ram too). I see you have a 2900XT...would you mind running 3dmark06 for a comparison as well? I know you're on 2 cards and I'm not asking you to take 1 out to make it more even (that'd be awesome though) but I'd love to see what score you get in comparison. Maybe I'll pick up a 2nd 3870 in a few days and then we'll have an even better comparison. I wish I knew what was truthfully going on with the 4xxx series cards so I could decide on buying another 3870 card or just wait. Meh...I'll probably just buy another 3870 instead anyway cuz I don't wanna try to sell this card as I love it.
