    I switched to a 4550 cuz i thought that maybe the 4870x2 was drawing too much power on my psu. I also disabled c1e and eist to test again.
    Even worse scores for 3d vantage mark , i only ran CPU tests.

    WOW, that is odd! Your realtemp score is only half stock of a normal one?

    I dont know stock vantage CPU Score, but here is mine at 4Ghz (8174 Points CPU) >>>
    ORB - World of Performance

    Tomorrow afternoon I will SuperPI and RealTemp test mine at stock for you and see what I get, you may have a faulty CPU... Have you pushed alot of volts(Vcore or Vtt) into it or left Vtt or PLL in Auto at a high overclock?

    Man that looks very wrong. I'm really sorry for you, it must be very disappointing.

    My E8400 stock @ FSB 333MHz x9 = 3GHz does SuperPI 1M in about 15.6s. I'm running a GA-P35-S3G mobo, 2x1GB Geil Black Dragon @ 333MHz x3.2 = 1066MHz, 5-5-5-15, and WinXP 32 bit.

    3Dmark06 score with HD 4850 also stock is about 11500.

    Your performance really looks wrong. Even if SuperPI was heavily dependant on memory (which I suspect it isn't) I wouldn't expect that much difference due to slower memory. Here's some test suggestions that may narrow down the problem:

    1. Thoroughly test your memory with Memtest86+ (boot from CD or floppy).
    2. Test your CPU passes the Intel Burn Test at stock settings.
    3. If you have disk space for another boot partition then set up a new WinXP 32 bit install and try that.
    4. If you have access to a compatible system (a friends maybe) then try swapping your memory and testing. Then try swapping CPU and testing. That might narrow down where the problem is.

    Good luck.

    soldier, 4800+ sounds fine for an x1950pro @ 1280x1024. Eg:
    X-bit labs - ATI Radeon X1950 Pro against Nvidia GeForce 7900 GS (page 18)
    I think it's more dependant on gfx card than CPU.

    Oh. I thought it was an overall system thing. boohoo.

    Ah well. At least I can pump far cry2 maxed :)

    edit,..

    is it just me or is that link not working?

    OK I believe i found my problem, or I hope. Someone suggested to do an HD test. My drive is a western digital so i went to their website and downloaded their diagnostic tool.

    I ran the quick test and it errored:

    06-Quick Test on drive 1 did not complete! Status code = 07 (Failed read test element), Failure Checkpoint = 97 (Unknown Test) SMART self-test did not complete on drive 1!

    The strange thing is I had windows run the scan and fix errors feature by right click on a drive and then going properties -> scan for disk errors. Since it was my only drive i had to restart. Before hitting the user list it did the scan, and completed successfully.

    I still think it is my harddrive that is the problem. I remember downloading off newsgroups and having corrupt iso's after quickpar. I got one iso created and burnt it, but the app wouldnt install and would hang midway

    Ah, this sounds like it may be similar to a problem I had, kawai. My HD was failing with lots of read errors, causing zillions of retrys by Windows for each attempt to read, or something like that. This was generating zillions of hardware interupts that Windows hardware interupt handler had to process using CPU cycles. Looking in the Windows Error log showed LOTS of HD errors. Anyway, my systems was running REALLY SLOW, and I went through the whole thing of checking CPU, mobo and memory before I finally worked it out.

    I think I realised the problem was HD when I looked in ProcessExplorer and saw the kernel process so busy. Ran the HD diag tool from the manufacturer and sure enough found loads of errors. Replaced the HD and problem gone. Fortunately for me it was not the system disk, and I was able to recover all my data slowly.

    @soldier - link to the the X-bit labs review woirks fine for me behind a pretty strict corporate firewall.

    It works now. Seems like their website was down...
