A few days ago I set about putting together a new computer (A8N-SLI Premium, Dual 7800GTX, FX-57, 2Gigs PC3200, Dual 74GB Raptors) and after a few issues and reformats I managed to convince it to work properly and be stable. I eventually installed Aquamark 3 and ran it a few times scoring around 76,000 to 78,000 with an average or 13,000 on video and 9,000 on CPU. The CPU score seemed low to me so I did a bit of research and found that most people with an FX-57 were scoring about 12,000 to 13,000 on CPU. I downloaded ASUS PC Probe II to see if the temperature might be an issue, but it reported my CPU to be running around 35 to 40 degrees C. I posted the problem on another forum and asked around. Several people recommended that I download the latest version of my motherboard's BIOS and check to make sure my FX-57 was running at its normal speed. I downloaded CPU-Z and it showed my FX-57 was running around 2,815MHz. My BIOS also showed the FX-57 running at 2,800MHz. A Few Days Pass... Evidently I already had the latest BIOS version that ASUS offers. I downloaded ASUS Update and had it check my BIOS version and it showed me as having "ASUS A8N-SLI Premium ACPI BIOS Revision 1011-001" and chipset "NF-CK804." I then headed over the ASUS's website to check if anything more recent was available, but I was unable to find any updates. I ran Aquamark 3 a few more times and am still getting around 9,000 on my CPU score and 13,000 on my Video score for totals around 76,000 to 78,000. I also ran PCMARK05 and 3DMark03 and got around 4,600 and 28,000 respectively. I'm not exactly sure if those scores match the scores that my system should have, so if anyone could offer any insight I would appreciate it. Also, if anyone else is running a non-overclocked FX-57 could you tell me if you are getting similar CPU scores on Aquamark 3? I suppose the bottom line is: Is my processor (FX-57) running at what it should be considering my scores on Aquamark 3 and the other Benchmarking programs I mentioned above? The PC seems to be handling well enough on CS: Source and CoD2, but I can't help feeling that I should be getting a higher score on Aquamark 3.
