I tried using 3dmark today (06, 05, 03) and 05 couldn't even complete. the cpu tests ran at 1-2 fps in '06. When I checked my stats at ORB, it reported that only one other user in the world has my configuration. i thought that was a little odd.

after trying all the 3dmarks with varying levels of success, i noticed that my temps were much higher than they should be. after running a few tests, i noticed my computer was acting oddly.

during installation of 3dmark, teatimer told me that it was making changes to my registry. i thought this was ok. however, after checking voltages, i reasoned that it must have been something 3dmark did that was causing my computer to act oddly.

so, i rolled back windows to an earlier installation, and it reported that it recovered from a serious error. i'm pretty sure now that this is 3dmark's fault, which would explain why there's so few phenom results at ORB.

did anybody else notice strange behavior after installing 3dmark?

Hi I've been using 3dmark for some time now and have used it with X2 6000+, X2 6400+BE, Phenom 9500 and now with Phenom 9850BE and have had no problems similar to what you describe.

Possibly a corrupted download, try downloading again and re-installing would be my suggestion.

The 1-2FPS in the CPU tests is standard so is no cause for concern.
