Re: Low 280 3DMark score on i7?
Running EVGA Precision using the 'on screen' display during a 3DMark06 run gives interesting viewing.
Temps hit no higher than 33c, so this is good. The card seems to be 'downclocking', which is not good.
A couple of times I saw the Core clock drop from 602 > 400 and the Memory clock from 1107 > 700.
I had disabled PhysX in Nvidia Control Panel on that run, and gained a few points also - 15203 is what I'm at now.
Interesting, but also, disturbing.
