Looks like it. Nice score.

I'm pretty happy with where I stand considering I'm using a 2 year old build across the board. It tells me I made good decisions when I configured and built the PC.

How so? My last 2 iMacs have had AMD GPUs.

Let me look, I remember finding one.

3DMark11 - LSU Coyote

i7 3770K @ 4.5Ghz 1.28V
EVGA GTX 690 4GB @ 1065Ghz
MSI Z77 MPower
16GB (4GB x 4) Corsair Dominator @ 2133Mhz
256GB Vertex 4 SSD
256GB Agility 4 SSD
500GB WD Velociraptor @ 10K RPM
ASUS Xonar Essence STx
Corsair AX850

I am bottle necked in benchmarks because my CPU will not past the physics test in 3DMark11 with an OC over 4.5GHz. It crashes every time.

If I could get my CPU to OC to 4.8 I could get a 10500 in the physics test and that should put me around 16500. Very disappointing.

I'm gonna post my scores later.

They should be pretty low. I have nothing special on my 7 month old budget build but I want to see.

Coyote never disappoints

I would do this, but my PC was top of the line like 3 or 4 years ago. I've replaced the mobo, but I still have an old processor and video card.

And there he is, and there goes my spot for first place.

Though I don't feel too bad, considering I'm only a few thousand points away from yours with a Sandy Bridge and a single GPU.

Those Ivy Bridges are little bitches about overclocking aren't they...

Mother fricking yikes! I was "thinking" about doing this once I got my new MB / Processor / Memory next week, but screw that, you guys are insane.

I can run Prime fine @ 5Ghz but it feels in the Physics test (5th test) in 3DMark11.

Believe it is more of a software issue than anything. IDK, really is pretty annoying when you have a stable OC and cant get it to fully past 3DMark.

ETA:

Also you can't push that 690 or any dual GPU cards like you can a regular SLi setup. Not that great for benching. My 2 670s would outscore this setup because I could push the fckk out of them.

I just like to try everything out. Have purchased I think 6 GPUs, 7-8MOBOs and both Ivy K chips. Never pulled the trigger on a 3930K because I have been waiting until Ivy-E.

NewEgg has a crazy good return policy. You normally just have to pay S&H to get your money back.

1 x EVGA 650Ti
2 x EVGA 670 FTW 2GB
2 x EVGA 670 SC 4GB
1 x EVGA 690

Also not a money bag at all.

Oh, so you're actually returning your stuff? I was envisioning a stockpile of unused high-end parts in your closet.

For the most part yes.

I have a few Z77 MOBOs from this year and still have a 670 FTW and 650Ti.

Have a ton of PSUs and memory though. A few monitors, I am slowly selling some of it before our hosue is being built. We are trying to bring as little junk into it as possible. Sort of hard though when you have an attachment to gadgets.

ETA:

I have a ton of builds though.

1 Home Server
1 HTPC
1 Main Rig
1 LightRoom/Photoshop build for the GF (Really a decent gaming build)

So after all that you know, there a ton of spare parts left over.
