Our systems are pretty simular , I can't help but think you need to update something.

Here's a guide to manually installing the Intel Chipset Drivers
X58 Sli Driver Install on Windows 7 beta

And here are the newest WHQL Intel Chipset Drivers
Intel Chipset Software Installation 9.1.1.1014 WHQL download from Guru3D.com

Here's the newest Realtek HD Audio Drivers
Realtek HD Audio 2.26 Driver download from Guru3D.com

Nvidia just released a new driver for all versions of Windows, 186.18, I haven't tried it yet. I've found the 185.85 to be faster than the 186.08

Nice Score PH3N0M

What mobo are you using? I don't see it in your sig. What type of cooling are you using on your cpu and video?

Hey man, thanks. I'm not sure about the mobo but I think it's an MSI. As for cooling, I'm just using a stock XPS 730x copper core heatsink. Stock cooling on the video cards as well.

I've wanted to go with 3-GTX285's but I'd have to opt for RealTek sound and remove my X-FI, something I'm not willing to do. However, I'm sure that would increase my score considerably.

Just installed my SSD. Win7 took 15 minutes to install. This thing is rediculously fast. I guess it also makes a difference since i was on a 3 year old 160gb drive. Anyway, here are my 24/7 settings. So far i have seen no reason to use anything more than these settings while playing WoW and mass effect.
ORB - World of Performance

Be back with some overclocked settings

37,010 | Veedubfreak | i7 920 @ 4.189GHz | EVGA 285 Tri-SLI @ 725/1662/1300 | Windows 7RC | ORB

And the thunder is once again stolen

Nice score Veedub, you can keep this one as I'm not going back to Tri-SLI.
