    Good one Mike!

    Try setting your system to a good high contrast them(recommendation : Windows 10 Themes created by Ten Forums members Solved - Page 210 - Windows 10 Forums )

    Then set Windows advanced settings to adjust for best performance, then run Passmark's tests one by one, flip flopping between the different tests.
    i.e.: one Graphic 3D, then a RAM test, then a disk test, Graphics 2D, CPU, and so on, so no one thing gets too warm too fast, and has time to cool. redo any test at the end you are not satisfied with.

    1: I set in the following in the BIOS: CPU @ 4.8, Cache @ 4.8, Voltage @ 1.45v RAM @ 3200 15-16-16-35-1T @ 1.3530v (to allow a boot if all goes balls up)

    2: Tweak system: windows desktop to solid colour, performance options to best performance, Nvidia control panel options setting to achieve best performance, turn off cache write buffer in disk policies, Kill all programs in the systray that are not needed then kill unneeded processes and set power profile to maximum.

    3: turn every fan to full speed.

    4: Open my overclocking utilities (Asus and Firestorm)

    5: set my CPU to 5.0 GHz and Cache to 5.0 GHz with the voltage/power profile needed to keep benchmark stable (this is a trade secret lol) using ASUS software.

    6: Set the GPU OC in firestorm 305 + to core, 815 -825 + on MEM, Power/Temp target to MAX and GPU MAX VOLT to 100%

    7: Open Passmark.

    8: (Run each section one at a time) and I start with the Disk benchmark, CPU, RAM, 2D then 3D.

    9: If 3D score is where you'd expect it to be from previous runs then leave it well a loan.

    10: back to ASUS OC Tool and set CPU to 5.1 GHz and Cache to 5.1 GHz with and small increase in Voltage.

    11: Rerun RAM one sub section at a time and check that the scores are increasing. If OK then move to the CPU and 2D sections.

    12: Run the CPU sub sections and rerun one at a time and after each single run move to the 2D section and run one of the sub sections. If an increase in score is witnessed then continue. (avoid the CPU physics sub section as it may kill your system if your CPU is on the edge) Keep going one at a time between CPU and 2D until you've rerun them all. (leave a small pause between to allow cooling). If all goes well you will see some nice increases.

    13: Last rerun the 3D section one at a time pausing between each run to allow heat to disperse and lower temps.

    14: take the screen dump and kick worfs ass


    NOTES: if you beat your own personal bests please take screen shots before continuing with any other rerun as I had around 7 dumps beating my score (mostly the competitions score lol) defore finishing with the final score.

    Hope this help anyone.

    Give it a go.

    Actually Cliff, I've been doing that .....last part. Have not done setting to High contrast them ....also have done setting to windows high performance mode many times.....I am also running today at 5.0GHz and rig is very stable. Only at this speed because its cold outside this morning.

    Thanks Andrew, you have given me some ideas to think about. The only one I don't like is using any overclocking utilities, IE: Software. I only use my bios settings. But like I said you have given me some food for thought.

    I set in to the BIOS a very safe OC of 4.7GHz with a safe Voltage of 1.45v which I know for my system is OK.

    I use the ASUS OC tools to clock up to 5.0 GHz to 5.1 GHz for the benchmarking. If all goes bottoms up when chasing that highest score and the system BSOD or freezes, then the reboot brings me back to 4.7GHz without the extra clearing the CMOS and entering the OC values again. Also a very time saving too lol.

    Another plus side is for example if you run the CPU tests say at 5.0GHz you can re-run some of them after changing the OC through the tool to say 2 - 4 cores @ 5.1GHz and the Cache speed also to achieve a better score on the CPU/2D/RAM sections because if you need to reboot you'd have to run them all again. As above some sections of a test don't do well with extreme OC's
