    His GPU boost clock = 2,000 MHz
    Your GPU boost clock = 1,759 MHz
    His CPU boost clock = 4,603 MHz
    Your CPU boost clock = 4,203 MHz

    "s t i f f y" is my alias. My scores should be higher, I just don't understand. My RAM is running at 3200Mhz as well.

    i made sure my video card was in the x16 slot, so that can't be it. Seriously? does anyone have any reasons why this is happening?

    Hi there , he is using a different version of Timespy benchmark , also he runs a different driver on his vga. If you look closely you can see he beats you on all the graphics test and i suspect 3dmark is not reporting the correct clocks on his video card , perhaps he was running higher clocks than reported. You did beat him on the cpu test so that's great.

    I will give you a couple of tips and tricks for TS.

    TS likes high memory clocks on the video card and scores a lot better because of it , oc your vga memory as high as you can get it without errors. Test different drivers to see wish one gives you the best score. Run windows on diagnostic mode and only enable Futurmark systemscan and driver. Tighten your Ram latencies ( secondary and tertiaries on your Bios ). Now run TS and see if your score gets close or beat his scores ;)

    More 1 reason is... CPU and/or RAM and/or GPU overclocked for any other user. ;)
