    I'm very confused, I've dropped my clocks down to below the factory OC to the stock clock speeds and I'm posting a 4000 score vs DTV's 6100. Do any of you have suggestions on what might be going wrong? Could it be old nvidia drivers messing around with this? I'm debating a clean install of my system just to make sure it isn't that.

    I just completely reinstalled win 7 64 bit and I'm still getting 4500-4600 on my stock speeds for furmark.

    What version of it did you do your tests with dragon?

    edit: nvm. I've discovered the issue. You were on v1.7 and I was doing it on v1.8. I feel like an idiot now :(

    i did the heavens at 1920X1080. Yours were at a much lower resolution, thus the discrepancy I hope???

    ok upped o/c to 975@1300@1.235v
    and got a very nice increase in dirt2 benchmark, at everything set to ultra
    before 960@1285
    total frams-5654
    avg. fps.-61.7
    min fps-51.8
    now 975@1300@1.237
    total frames-6495
    avg fps-71.6
    min fps-58.9

    seems like my 5870 realy turned it on when I hit these clocks,think I found the "sweet spot" for my card!

    nice clocks there. Is that all the more you can push the memory up to on it? I'm able to hit 1335-1350 on my 5850 at a lower voltage.

    yeah, it'd be for maybe 1 fps too so not worth the risk eh?

    the 10 fps I got in dirt2 was realy nice I wouldnt doubt it if me switching to 10.3 drivers helped as well , because after I put 10.3 my heavens bench went up as well 3dmark06, so the 10.3 are very good drivers for increased fps,
    wolf says thanks.

    I think same way, the only game, which can totally decrease fps - Crysis.

    Really? I just thought that AvP is the most demanding game at the this moment. :ohwell:

    up. Then what the game to test performance ? Crysys ?
