I think I am getting some disappointing results when using 3DMARK03 benchmarks (free version).

I have stuggled to score 1839 by tweaking a couple of settings in the BIOS. I was getting a similar score with my old Gigabyte 8PE667 Ultra board and non SATA HHD.

I hope the score will increase once I have fitted a new P4 2.8 GHz 800 FSB cpu

Some scores have been recorded in the high 3000nds with similar system specs.

I was wondering if somebody who has a similar setup could perhaps give me some pointers with regards to getting more out of my system.

My cpu runs at 34 deg C for small loads and 46/47 deg C when cpu at 100%.

I use the computer for Flight Simulation (FS9).


My system:
P4 2.53 GHz o/c to 2.90MHz using manual BIOS settting FSB 152.
512 cache / 533 FSB

P4C800-E DELUX Bios 1011

1 x Samsung memory module PC2700
1 x Micron memory module PC2700

Creative GF4 Ti 4600 128 MB drivers 52.16. AGP 4x

Hansol P900 19" monitor (CRT) resolution 1600x1200x32

2 x SATA Maxtor DM 9 , 80 GB connected to the intel southbridge and set to RAID0

Power supply 350W
Creative sound live 1024 Drivers July/2002

4 x Labtac speakers for surround sound.

CD-R/RW, and a seperate 16 x DVD

3.5" Floppy drive.

You need two memory modules of the same brand, model, speed, and size. Using the two different won't allow you to take advantage of the dual channel, and it will hurt performance.

Be areful with that little 350W power supply. Don't do too much overclocking without a larger one.
