Default GeForce GTX 570 SLI setup

My GTX 570 SLI setup is working great, but my 3DMark scores seem low. I can get about 36500 in 3DMark Vantage and 9476 in 3DMark '11. I think I should get much higher than these scores. I know it's only a benchmark, but my system seems to be slower than comparable systems. I know my CPU is a lightweight, but what else could be wrong? I'm also running the latest drivers with all the SLI updates I could find.

That score is actually spot on for your specs. You can gain a bit by overclocking your cpu to 4ghz+.

I agree in SLI at 3.3GHz you are being held back. Games don't need super fast CPU's but benchmarks will typically eat anything you throw at them.

Too be fair your Sandy is better suited to the GTX SLI setup then your Core i7.
