Well let's hope the one you already have isn't faulty, or if it is, it's something you can fix.

BTW here's my PCMark Vantage score - Result (ran in 64-bit mode)

Hmmm for some reason the site is running ridiculously slow!

So when I called thermaltake, they said that I could RMA it, but that they had the same (sort of) issue with an MSI test rig (the power on, then off, then back on).
Unfortunately, I don't have any proof of purchase (2 or so years old) to RMA it with.

I just don't know what the issue is....

If you bought it on-line you could have them look it up for you. Been there did that

Anyway I do hope you get it sorted out because I know that rig is dying to be benched

Good luck.

Mine:

Heaven Benchmark v2.1

FPS:31.8
Scores:800
Min FPS:20.7
Max FPS:73.8

I was wondering how the integrated graphics in the new CPU series hold up. I know they don't compare to a dedicated card, but wondered how close to being decent they are.

Not sure, I have a 260GTX and that is mostly a graphics test.

Oh, I am glad I get to show off
Result

Would you say it is worth buying the full version for $20?

Very nice!!

I canít seem to get mine past 4.73Ghz. Got it to boot at 4.8Ghz but it crashed under load. Iím going to try reducing the bus back 100Mhz then increasing the multiplier to see if I can push it even further.
