Hi guys,

I just built a new machine with 16gigs of ram, i7 2600 and it was a mess for a little bit but I managed to make it work and run 10.6.8 w/GTS 450. I'm getting a very low geekbench though for some reason.. it's about 6000 which is not what I'm expecting.. I attached a picture of my bios to see if I need to change any of the turbo setting with this motherboard. If you had any success please let me know.

Thanks so much.

It's running with imac 12.1 btw.

wow that is low, my laptop just hit 12304 using the i7 2.0 chip. I would say your not in 64 bit mode, but........ I have been playing about on mine today, and different setups give different results. mine can go from the 6000 range to the 12k range its funny.

Whats your busratio set at? I set mine to busratio=29

I'm having the same issue ... 5666 ... I'll try changing to Mac Pro 3,1 and report back after reboot :)

EDIT: That did it! This is stock as well, 64bit system using 32bit GB.
