Passmark might have a CPU limitation resulting in the lower or higher performances. I see these coincide with your cpu scores.

Re: Crysis 2 Graphics problem

As I said in my previous post, install the latest patch from http://www.gamefront.com/crysis-2-patch-v1-1-download/

It's not a driver issue, but a game problem with some of the lighting, I had insane flickering and this fixes it.

Re: sticky pc

You can have a look at rampage gaming as well. I got extremely good service there. Order my HD5970 and CPU and Motherboard from them on the Friday morning and collected it on the Sunday on my way past. My box was delivered in 3 days.

Not to sure if a topic for this already exists. I bought the game when it launched, but have not been able to play it due to the low FPS.

Re: How to change RAM timings

I have not been able to get my timings below the XMP profile without running a lower frequency. I have played around with it a bit over the last while and only in SuperPi have I seen some small benefit of running lower frequency and tighter memory timings. Other factor such as CPU, GPU and HDD speed...
