I just installed my computer last night. P4 2.4B, P4PE, 512m Corsair 3200c2, ATI AIW 8500DV, Maxtor 30G uDMA 100 HD.

That's the basic environment...

I leave all the setting in the Bios to default. fresh installed winXP sp1, with all the drivers.

Then I tested in 3dMark 2001se default setting, the score is only ......2xxx..... What the hell is going on?

Anyone can tell me where I might have made a mistake?

BTW: is a same "secret" 3:4 jump in P4PE like P4B533?

:eek: :confused: :mad: :(

Check anandtech's review on 10/7 "p4pe 3 way shootout". It shows some basic overclocking settings for your new board in the "bios and overclocking" section of the article.
