Re: What is Holding Back My 3DMark06 Score?
I really wouldn't put much faith into 3dmark06 tests. It just doesn't always work out to compare between setups because 3dmark doesn't always grab the correct information. Your stock test looks fine as it is going to be totally CPU limited. The higher res test shows some good scaling, but I can bet your still CPU limited in that test too.
For what it's worth, I just did a check in the orb for a C2Q running at 2400mhz and using an ATI 4870X2 and there is only one result which comes in at 12288, so it looks like you're doing okay.
