    It screws up on bus speeds and the like because of CSI. Why is the processor overclocked? 940 has a stock clock of 2.93 GHz.

    How about Raring a several GiB worth of data?

    Well, I'm calling BS. You are an Aussie though (Border Security). 27203 3DMarks is a very good score. What was your system specs when you got that?

    lol, you got owned.

    anyway, for tests

    superpi (we have a superpi thread on here, grab their modded XS version) - run a 1M, 4M and 16M test.

    3dmark 06 (1024x768 res, and whatever the highest res you can do is)

    Generic CPU benchmark - run both x86 and x64 versions.


    Those three should be pretty easy to do and take less than an hour all up, while giving us a good comparison points.

    (i am aware lemonade soda reccomended mostly the same things, i just wanted to mention some settings for each program)

    What exams are you doing, yr 11/12 or uni?

    Also that's a fair system you got there, especially to afford as a student. For instance that q9650 is nearly $900 here in Aus.

    More power to you though, looking forward to seeing some more screenies. I know everyone has asked for different things, but any game tests you can run would be great. That's all I care about.

    Cheers
    Tye

    Gee I didn't know you were selling SSDs for Intel. That link :)

    And yes, the CPU-Z screen looks good, but where's the link to the validation on x86Secret?
