    I did some searching and your results look about right. Have you tried searching for baselines using "Find Same CPU+Video Card" in download baselines?

    Tried a different Mobo...




    Seems the Mobo was the issue, so 1638.7

    Gigabyte GA-MA770-UD AMD Phenom II X4 965 3415 BL277316

    Also did you do a clean install of windows 7 after you changed CPU's? If not windows may be confused. Take a look in device manager under processors.
    Does it list the correct name for all four cores? If not delete all cores and reboot. Your CPU, Memory and CD scores are really low. The memory score being low could be caused by the low CPU performance. What type of CD/DVD are you using for the CD test? Best results are obtained using a pressed DVD.
    A original (pressed) windows Vista or Windows 7 install DVD is what I use and it works well. My HTPC score for comparison.

    CPU result (among others) is low. Are you running on all cores? Also check the PerformanceTest Edit / Preferences window to see that you are running at least 4 processes.

    Crucial 4GB Kit (2x2GB) DDR2 800MHz/PC2-6400 Memory CL6 1.8V
    Qty: 2 will be fitted tomorrow morning.

    Once fitted I will run another test, I just hope to God there is a noticeable improvement.
    So your going to run 8 gigs? Four 2 gig modules? If so keep track of each pair (kit). Mark one kit some how, marker tape etc. Place one pair (kit) in the blue slots and the other kit in the white slots. It is not uncommon to have stability problems running all slots populated at full rated speed. If you have problems. Try manually setting the memory to 666 mhz instead of 800 mhz.

    I have x3 sticks of this

    Try running "windows memory" diagnostic test. Go to start and type whats in the above quotes.

    Is the memory matching 2 gig modules. Same brand, model, part number?
    If not you most likely will not get dual channel to work. The difference in performance between single and dual channel is little to none on an AMD system. Dual channel is preferred but you will never see the difference.

    If you are going to buy new memory get DDR2 800 PC2 6400. If possible get ram that's on the QVL list for your board. I myself try to buy Corsair, Crucial or OCZ memory when possible. All three have good support and consistent quality.

    Hi All,
    OK my system has changed, I now have the 965 phenom, but my mobo will only recognise 2 slots, and its running in single mode not dual mode. 1x2gb in Blue, 1x2gb in the white, " any other combo seems to hang it.

    Do I need some better memory do you think?

    Apparently the freezing issues and possibly the speed issues were due to bent and broken pins on he CPU. new 965 coming tomorrow, ill re post fingers crossed.
