  1. Nathan, I upgraded the PSU to a 750 watts when I bought the 970. I am using a good slot plus the additional six pin connector. So I believe it is getting enough power. Now, how do I check to see if it is getting enough power? Thank you.
  2. Nathan, I am very happy with my scores except my gtx 970 scores low in comparison with their average whichy is in the 900 range... I was able to increased the 3d score somewhat from 639 to 658 by using Zotac Firestorm small and safe overclock... Why are my gtx 970 scoring low? it is not just with Novabench, passmark scores are also low way under the averages. Thank you.

  3. One thing that many people forget is that to run any benchmark your laptop needs to be plugin to ac power. Without it the cpu will throttle back most times.
  4. I have a 2009 HP m9600t PC. The only upgrades I have made are the cpu which was upgraded to a still 2009 i7-980 (not even the 980x), and an NVidia gtx 970 video card. Everything else still stock including the hard drive. And all that running at 4K. And memory can only run at the locked by HP speed of PC3-8500. The lowest speed in DDR3 ram. My scores are better than most new cpu's and system of today. Moral is that for a few hundred bucks you can update your system without breaking the bank. Still going strong after seven years. By the way, I bought this system refurbished back in '09. I think I can get an other 3 years out of this old lady! Look at my CPU score, better than some i7-5820k and most i7-6500 or 6700...
