Me too Verified NovaBench Score: 782 Test run on October 30, 2013 Microsoft Windows 7 Professional AMD FX8150 EightCore running at 4280 MHz NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 GPU 32714 MB System RAM (Score: 238) - RAM Speed: 3773 MB/s CPU Tests (Score: 258) - Floating Point Operations/Second: 97061864 - Integer Operations/Second: 244342320 - MD5 Hashes Generated/Second: 349265 Graphics Tests (Score: 254) - 3D Frames Per Second: 738 Hardware Tests (Score: 32) - Primary Partition Capacity: 931 GB - Drive Write Speed: 37 MB/s I actually don't care about anything except the CPU score which I thought was amusing. I checked to see if other people with my CPU were getting the same result and there were some (not *quite* as bad.) So what is the secret to getting a good score other than the obvious- nothing else running etc. How could my score be this low? From the scores that are posted, I can see that people with the same chip are getting much better scores, over twice as fast overall... selected from posted scores: 1728 AMD FX8150 EightCore running at 3908MHz Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 RAM: 16330 MB Submitted by Ghoast0085 on Apr 2, 2013 and they are getting - with the same CPU not OC'ed more than mine- literally triple my score in the CPU category: CPU (Score: 719) (taken from the same user's score as above) Now if CPUs are commodity items built all alike (and they are for all intents and purposes) and both CPUs are OC'ed about the same amount (this person's was actually running slower than mine ) the posted results lead me to believe that there is something more going on with respect to posting a good score. Anyone know what that something might be?
