Default Holly crap! My CPU is on steroids

Well I got a new mobo today and it booted right at my preferd 3.4GHz OC with 1.34 Vcore and after some tweaking I got this!

Does any one else have a 3.4GHz quad that can get me some comparison results?

Strange.

I just ran the test on my system and the results look almost exactly the same, except the numbers are roughly halved (dual cores vs quads).

My CPU hits 33k on the Dhrystone while the 2.93Ghz dual supposedly gets 23k. Thats an increase of about 33% for only about 20% increase in clock speed (from 2.93 to 3.6).

Very strange results.

Try running your CPU as close to 2.93 as you can. If it still scores much higher than theirs then its most likely just an inconsistency with their scoring. Or you could have an uber system.

Maybe it's about right, this is what I get in XP with Sandra Lite (2008.1.12.34):

The test does stop for a short while at 50% before going on.

core temp runs on 64 you just have to use a loader, and those so arnt your real temps @3.5 on high end water you can maintain a 50Ccore but were talking dual triple rads...

D/L this version of Prime95; it automagically will detect and run threads on as many cores as you have.

DL 64bit core temp here: http://forums.erodov.com/showthread.php?t=2161
DL OCCT here: http://www.ocbase.com/perestroika_en/index.php?Download



Dont bother with orthoes this is much better for loading the cores
