Came up with a 10,428. Top 17% Also had a couple small things running in the background when I ran the test. Not sure if that makes a difference.

 

Not sure how to post a link to the results without having show all my info.

Hey, That's great! To post a link to your test results, just go back to the last saved result you have and on the summary page, just copy the link at the top of the page( in your browser address bar) and insert is into your post here on the forum.

Sounds like you'd better stick with stock speeds for now till you get a video card in that thing...

On the initial page you can click each tip individually to see suggestions on how to correct the issues noted there.

Well, I have video card but it's probably outdated by todays standards. It seems to work well though. Runs Skyrim on ultra with no problems.

I should learn to pay better attention when looking at tests...that 460 is just fine, I have 2 of them in SLI on my main rig and they work fabulously. Depending on your monitor you should get good resolution. The PIT Test video test will have a section on the 2D test that may be quick and appear like "flickering", is that what you meant?

Nevertheless those are nice scores! I'm so glad that you got it up and running right off the bat this time...

No, it was actually during the 3d test. I guess I could describe it more as a screen tearing. It didn't happen once I changed the cpu multiplier back to the stock 3.8. Maybe it's because I did the OC with the asus turboV software? Unfortunately, I still can't fully view the BIOS, not sure why.

 

I am very happy it worked straight away this time as well. I was feeling a bit stupid after the first attempt went down the tubes. But now I'm fairly confident that there was a problem with the socket on that other MB.

Thanks Charles. :b33r:

 

I'm sure you were happy to see that set-up come to life after dealing with the frustration of the other MB.

http://www.pcpitstop...nid=24942327 I clocked the CPU to 4.0 GHz here and got a higher total score but there was some odd flickering on the graphics test.

 

http://www.pcpitstop...=24942443 Here I went back to 3.8 GHz but changed to 16 bit. Better percentage but lower total score.

 

huh, i would have thought the fx6200 would score better. here's my 1100t for comparison.

Every time I run the test I come up with different scores for each part of the system. The first time I ran it, the CPU was in the top 0% and at one point it was as low as the top 8%. I don't know why that happens.

I've noticed that too, but I always considered it to mean that a computer is somewhat dynamic and depending on what it's doing the numbers will be different.

Get an idea of what programs you need to have running 24/7, then when you want to run the Pit Test, open Task Manager and go to the Processes tab, right click each one that is not necessary and select "End Process". Now run the Pit Test and your scores will be more consistent. ;)

Still running good. This thing blows through rendering AE projects. I was messing around and made this last night, Took less than one minute to render. Probably at least a 10 minute render on my old laptop.

 

 

I need to download some SFX.

Rendering looks good and I'm mighty glad to hear you singing the praises of your new machine. Couple of things you should have if you don't already. (software)

http://majorgeeks.co...ster_d2859.html < imperative that you have this

http://majorgeeks.co...Free_d5116.html

http://majorgeeks.co...ware_d5756.html < also a real necessity

 

SpywareBlaster will help keep the "nasties" off your new rig, If you should get infected, the other 2 will help take care of it. ;)
