Here are our top ten lists for various popular benchmarks spanning GPU, CPU and memory synthetic tests. If you have a great score and want to be included in one of the top tens, just make a new post and add an attachment of the feat as proof. This will not only let us keep the thread updated with your latest runs, but also give other users an idea of what settings were used in the achieving of the scores. If needed, the included benchmarks can be downloaded from the links provided at the bottom of the page.

Thank you and good luck!

I have no idea about those SANDRA. There will be two results for each listed... ones an Integer result, while the other is floating-point.

I am going to bench soon and I'll upload the scores. I'll edit out that post since it's kind of long.

Not sure yet, I really have run them in a long time, more than likely just take a screen shot of the results if I can. But I need to boot into Windows first to check it all out and run it a few time to be sure.

I haven't had much time to overclock, so all I've done right now is the Skulltrail machine. I'll benchmark my regular machine as seen in my sig sometime this week. As for SANDRA, the results we need are the Int/Float (Multi-Media) and MIPS/MFLOPS (Arithmetic) from both... it will be displayed in that order in the results.

The results here are from an overclocked Skulltrail machine:

2 x QX9775 @ 4.0GHz
4GB FD-DIMM DDR2-800
2 x ASUS EN8800GTS 512 (780/1840)

It might not like SLi or something, don't know, but I'll run mine again at stock GPU clocks just to see what I'm getting.

OK, just ran it again at LightsMark defaults (when the program starts) and at the system settings shown in the pic and I still come up with 448. A friend of mine gets about 50 FPS less on his AMD based system but running the same clocks on the card.

We are not that far in CPU Mgz and FSB and you are killing me in FPS......maybe I'll take out one card and try that again, just on Lightsmark
Or maybe Lightsmark can't handle SLI ?

non SLI Tests

Well, that was disappointing
non SLI gave a little better score, but nothing like sbrehm's

:techgage::techgage: Merlin :techgage::techgage:

That's sort of what I'm thing, but I have no way to test it....................:D Try disabling SLi instead of removing a card, that should work as well.

Strange, there has to be something in your settings that's holding your system back. What is your card clocked to??

May also have something to do with your drivers and OS that you're running, I'm running 169.21 drivers on XP with just about all services disabled.

I'm becoming increasingly confident that the blame is on Vista. Bill, Merlin and I are all using Vista and receive ~300 point scores, while sbrehm is uses XP and scores 50% higher.

If that's the case, then it's rather pointless to include it within our top ten. It's obvious that a single 8800 GT doesn't outperform SLI 8800 GTS 512 by 50%, and since we all don't run the same OS, competing there is nonsense.

I'll reboot this machine soon to XP and run the bench there to verify that this is indeed the case.

I agree that it's a Vista issue now after chatting with a few friends, they are all running XP with 8800 GT/GTS cards and are scoring 400 plus in the test.
