I upgrated from a xp2100+ w/ gigabyte kt333 to a 2500+ w/ nf7-s (rev2). Everything else in my system is the EXACT same.

My 3d2001 score with my old system was 7020.

With my new system, stock memory timeings(2.5-3-3-7) & fsb, it was 7256.

I upped my FSB to 170Mhz x 12, and changed the timeings to 2.0-2-2-11. My 3dmark2001 score is now 5465. Wtf?

I enabled CPU Interface, and my score went up 10, lol. All my sandra2004 and pcmark2002 scores have went up.

I've ran prime95 for 2 hours, no errors. (i will run it for longer when i have more time :) ) and I ran memtest86 for 2 hours, no errors. I even reinstalled 3d2001. Does it matter that I don't have the pro version? Does that make my score lower? (i didn't EVER have the pro version, just SE)

lol, turned AA and AF to app. preference or disabled, and score jumped to 10599. (everything in 3d2001 was at default)

I guess I musta had that disabled before. My bad :)
