    Hey, i am new here and I was wandering if you guys can help me with a problem.

    Yesterday I tried to overclock my fx5200 with a program(I can't find the name of it) wich aloud me to change the speeds in de configuration screen for a nvidia card. Normaly I use powerstrip, but I was just wandering if I could use that program instead. When I used the new program I lost 100 marks in 3dmark 2001, so I swiched back, wich cost me another 100 marks.

    Can somebody tell me why this happened and how to get my 200 marks back?

    I reinstalled my videodrivers and powerstrip an I also removed the other program.

    3dmark 01 scores change every time you do the tests. it normally doesnt change too much
    if you had any other programs running in the background these could have been responsibe
    also 200 points in real life situations (actually playing games) wont make much difference. maybe 1 or 2 frames per second

    I know that the score is't always the same, but in this case it was, with no extra programs running in the backround. I realise that I won't see the difference, but I just want to know, how this was possible.

    I have run the test. Then retested right after and my score has changed more than that.
    It isn't something I think you will get a straight answer for. It just happens.

    Maybe, but I tested my system, like 30 times in a row and scores where always the same. That is why I am so shure that it has to be a hardware or software(driver) problem.

    I wish that my scores where always the same but they arn't and can vary quite a bit between runs.

    I don't think there is anything to worry about. My score consistenly goes up and down. Sometimes as much as two hundred. Last night I did a couple one 10600 the the was around 10800. (Still trying to break that 1100 mark my P4 won't go above 113 fsb)
