I assume you're talking about 3DMark Vantage. 12000 on the Performance Level test is what you should be getting. Why do you think it's low?

So that is a good score for my system? I don't know about benchmarks the much fastest pc is above 50000 score 12000 seems low to me, but that's just me. Also stock is under 12000, when overclocked to 3.8 and gpu at full throttle only goes up to low 12000. here is my 3DMark result from stock.

First off... yes that is a normal score for your system, it seems low to you, simply because you're uninformed.
Secondly, the ORB is not a good place to compare your system. HWbot.org, will provide a better reference.
There are MANY things that effect the overall score, and if you're not into benchmarking you just don't know, these things aren't just common knowledge. You might be able to break 13000, if you get your CPU up over 4 ghz.

Just for reference... the World Record for 3DMark Vantage Performance is 44,232 done with a Intel Extreme i7 975 on LN2 at 5333 mhz as well as 4 Radeon 5870's each on LN2 running 1200mhz on the core and 1300mhz on the mem.

:face palm: Make a signature so you don't have to keep posting your specs and resize your pictures or only give links. Much easier to go about a thread that way.

With that out of the way, have you been doing any sort of stress testing at these speeds? Also, what is your cooling situation? Even for the best of oc'ers (including those with loops) can't achieve 4ghz on the Phenom II platform.

Your scores are fine. I overclocked my CPU to 3.81GHz and and had 2 4850s (stock) crossfired and got the same/similar scores. Had to bring my clocks down to 3.6GHz though cuz it was very stable at all.
