Default Re: New build question

Are you using the Thermalright cooler that I suggested? If not, I wouldn't overclock too high on the stock cooler. I only have the stock cooler setup right now and I'm keeping mine at about 3.15 for now. Keep an eye on your temps with coretemp or something.

Cooler is on the way.
I don't mind putting it
in and putting everything
back together.

No OC yet, Just got it running.

3DMark Vantage
CPU Score 18431
Graphics Score 9051

Not very good.

My Q9300 gets cpu 32000.

Any suggestions or things to try?


Running better now

3DMark P12119
CPU Score 41463
Graphics Score 9806
