  • New system, error and low FPS.

    I have a basically brand new system and I'm getting really low scores and an error on the direct X 3d portion of the benchmark. I can also barely run Crysis or Dawn of War II (we're talking 1-2 FPS). Anybody have any ideas what could be wrong?

    The error states "The DirectX 10 test ran correctly however there was an error during the cleanup phase and some objects may not have been released. This should not have affected the test score."

    Below are the results. Any help is GREATLY appreciated, thanks!

    Yes, the 3D frame rates and 3D mark are pretty awful. You should check you have the latest device drivers to start with.

      I've got the latest drivers and the cpu temp is fine. Maybe it has something to do with windows 7 (64 bit)? The CPU score is fine, and when I tried with a different (older) graphics card I get the same error and the same unusually low 3d scores (albeit even worse than the GTS 250).

        What is the GPU temp (not the CPU).

        Do you have the card in the right PCI slot (on most MB's it is hard to mess this up, but doesn't hurt to ask)?

          GPU temp is 45C (just got GPU-Z), I'll have to see what happens to the temp when I benchmark it later (thanks for the suggestion). I'll be working on this over the weekend and I'll let you all know if I figure this out. Thanks again!

            Weird. Decided to move on and install my sound-card (m-audio audiophile 192), noticed it was having excessively poppy / stuttering audio. To fix it I looked to see if it was sharing an IQR with anything (the on-board audio was sharing the same IQR with the new audio card). Disabled the on-board/motherboard audio, fixed the stuttering audio problem, and now I can run crysis fine. I'll re-run the benchmark tomorrow see what comes out, but everything appears to be fixed!
