here come the question, why when i flash the chinatech mod bios 480/850. i can score 3dmark03 around 5500 which equal pov 490/900 score??


first thing I would check is if both these bios's have latency mod at "40" ? All my moded bios's are not set this way, a lot probably are with latency at "43". Bios modding was a developing procedure and only when I was sure of benefits to all potential users did I start introducing appropriate bios changes ! The Aopen bios, being one of the first, is definately set at "43" !

so which modified bios's are you testing with ?
The more I know, the more I know I don't know

Intel P4 3.2 @ 3.85GHz (ASUS P4C800E-Deluxe)
BFG 6800GS (16x1,6vp) @ 300/430/1200.
