Default BFG 6800GT listed at 11.9MHz GPU clocks

OK I just put my new PC together yesterday. Using the ASRock 939 Dual SATA2 mobo and A64 3700+ CPU. And PC wizard lists my GPU frequency at 11.9MHz So does 3DMark 2003/2005 and my 3DMark 2k3.2k5 scores suck! My Athlon 3000+ Compaq with the same 6800GT scored better in both. Matter of fact I get about 1000 less points in 2k5 than I did on my compaq. I'm running the newest drivers from nVidia. What could be holding it back?

Help....

What power supplies are in both systems?

Also, when you migrated the HDD from the Compaq over to the new system, did you reformat? Did your Compaq even come with a Windows XP disc?

Only one system and its an 400watt Aopen psu 12v - 16a. But its the same PSU I had in my Compaq and it worked just fine.

That PSU is likely the culprit. Newer CPUs and mobos draw their power almost exclusively from the 12V rail, as opposed to speading it on the 5V, 3.3V, and 12V rails. As such, with a newer system (even with that mobo's 20-pin connector) you'll want at least 22A on the 12V rail for your PSU.

The power draw on the 6800GT is roughly the same as or more than a 7800GT, and that's recommended to be 12V@20A for a stock clocked card.

Yes I did a clean install, I used nlite to go into my HP win XP home disk and got rid of all the HP crap and made a new disk.

You got the AGP driver installed and working? Forceware lists it as running AGPx8?
I think that is a comon thing on these boards otherwise. got one myself..
Cant remember with one was better to install, the one AsRock Supply or the one off ULis website..
Unless its PCI-E that is..
I noticed the AGP driver wont work under x64 with 8x.xx drivers, but they did with 7x.xx..

Yes make sure you install the chipset drivers.

It's a bug, not an issue with your PC. I have a BFG 6800GT OC, and 3DM06 reports it as 11.9MHz, too. I never found a cause for it, but other utilities show the correct clock. No idea about why your scores are lower, though.

Yes Forceware lists it at AGPx8...so all is good? Going to have to install some games and try em out.
