  1. play with the run order some. I did ch then nature and made a pretty good jump. the ch test is one that will bug high for you and can make 500-800 points difference for you to. running nature late for me kills the fps avg on that test. for me by running the ch first I can get an idea of what a good run is and abort if it isnt a good run, if I abort it I will restart the program and run it again, then run nature as it doesnt really hurt the fps by running second. for me the rest arent that improtant. but at the end run cl until you get a good run. the other thing I would try is turning on d3d overrider (triple buffering) for just the nature test and it is a big difference just there. I bet you have a 104000 waiting for you

    The 3d01 and 32m make me very happy. Especially the 3d01, cause the beats the best 980x/4890 score on the bot by 1800 points.

    There's more in the tank too, it's just going to take more work to drag it out.


    Well played! Now that I got the Jiggy set up I'm competitive in 3d with the x6 at 5000ish...running Ram at 2000 has really helped with my 3d stuff. Goint to run the whole slew of 3d's today. :thup:

    This is what I want to see every morning when I wake up! w00t!

    (on a side note: Bob...your 4890 should have a little more left in the tank...(thats sarcasm for those who hadn't had coffee yet))
    Thanks :D

    Vantage too: http://hwbot.org/community/submission/1065936_bobnova_3dmark_vantage___performance_radeon_hd_4890_14868_marks

    I got highly annoyed with it and moved on, i think there's a p15000 in this setup at least.

    either way, if you cant stick your tongue to it, its cold and helps the cpu. so lets get to it, should be able to make it. good luck with the setup.
