That's weird. I get 15k on my set up with 2 9600GT's and my Q6600 at 3.6. I have 4GB RAM at CL4 though.

Are you sure SLI is enabled and working? Your score looks like a single GPU score. Dont know why 3Dmark06 is reading your system incorrectly, 2304MB is weird considering you have 3GB ram.

What are your:
SM 2.0 Score
SM 3.0 Score
CPU Score

What are your benchmark settings like resolution, FSAA, etc? Was SLI enabled? Do you have a lot of background tasks runing at the same time?

For a real performance gain, you need to drop your multiplier to x8 and up the FSB alot more if you can.

Also, be aware that the temp reading you're getting is not the T.Junction temp. You need to use Core Temp or Everest for the correct reading.

Your CPU score is normal, but SM2.0 and SM3.0 scores are way too low, in fact lower than those of a single 8800 GT.
