Are you sure your sticks are running at their rated speed? Often enough, the BIOS will set a lower frequency when 4 sticks are present.

are you sure you have revision 2 ram? If it's the original Platinum then your speeds should be 4-5-4-15. Even rev 2 is rated at 4-4-4-15

If your games run better, the heck with 3dMark.

Did you have Vista before you added the ram. If you switched to Vista after you got the ram thats probably where your points went....
