Yeah, something looks wrong. Is the graphics card's auxiliary power plugged in?

Sorry if i seem dumb.
Im new to hardware, but what exaxtly do you mean.
I opened the case and the 2 peices hooked to the mother board are plugged into the cards and the SLI strip is up.

Originally the EPU and CPU were turned off
The card was in a x8 Slot
And some Inner things were off.

Had the other card in the 1st slot before and had video card tearing on the desktop.

Switched them around and turned all these settings on and such and fixed some issues tho i still see some game tearing.
Im wondering if one of the graphix cards are bad. Might send them both back and replace. wile still under waranty

But if i did that what would explain my low CPU score. Bad ram?

A card like that can't be powered alone from the slot on the motherboard. Here's a picture showing the extra power plugged in: '>

Yeah, your CPU is also seriously under-performing. It could be bad RAM. Could also be bad power supply.

The gpu card needs to have a secong pcie power plug attached. You have other issues. The cpu score is terrible for that cpu. Go into the BIOS and load "Optimized Defaults" F10 to save and exit. Make sure you have the gpu power pluged in and set the gpu to it's defaults. Then run the test again, you should see 1200+ possible way more than that.

After you establish a base libe test score ypou can start making changes in BIOS, ONE change at a time, test and see if you are up or down. Good idea the write down what youi change so you can go back and set it if you hit a bad combination of setting. You can spend hours if not days getting it to peak performance.

I have an i5-3570k with a better score

my 1600mhz RAM has a better score and a write speed of 10,000 mb/s (Did you set yours to 2133 in the bios? most of the time it will default your Ram to 1333mhz)

I have the 3gb 660 superclocked by EVGA and scored 730, so something definitely went wrong there.

The only legitimate score you got was on the Hardware(your primary HDD)
