Hello. So first my pc:
6700K stock , never oc and temps are fine
Gtx 1080 Ti FE , never oc, stock
16GB DDR4
Corsair 750 RM
Windows 10 , drivers 388.13


So today i run 4 times 3dmark Fire strike custom . ( graphic test 1 , graphic test 2, physics score and combined score ).
All is fine , but combined score weirdly fluctuate on first run.

1 run:
https://www.3dmark.com/fs/14034905

Combined score : 7883 score, 36.67 fps


2 run ( only Combined score ):
https://www.3dmark.com/fs/14034931

Combined score: 8 277, 38,5 fps

3 run :

https://www.3dmark.com/fs/14035042

Combined score : 8 420 score, 39.17 fps

4 run:

https://www.3dmark.com/fs/14035779

Combined score: 7918 score , 36.83 fps


My pc is stable, no have crashes or artifacts. No problems with games. But only want to be sure that this variation its fine or not?
I close all programs during tests. I am sure at 99% that was not caused by any background process. All 4 runs was with the same settings and the same resolution.

Scores are going to fluctuate. Look at your 3rd run versus your 4th run, that is a 502 point difference. Your first run to your 2nd run is only a 394 point difference. GPU boost 3.0 for the video card is going to give you different variances based off load and temps. You may even get a better score by setting a fan profile to 100% for example. A 500 point variance between multiple tests isn't that uncommon. You are scoring roughly 8k, which is perfectly fine. My only concern is when people say "temps are fine", a lot of time they have no idea what acceptable temps are or what the actual temp is. Make sure you use software like cpuid hardware monitor for example or aida64, to monitor the temps of both your cpu and gpu.
