Arrow Refurbed 9800AIW from the Egg

Sup guys, I murdered my last 9800np -> Pro so eventually I picked this refurbed 9800 AIW from newegg for $240. Luckily I got all the accessories, CDs, connectors, etc. I'm running latest Cat drivers, all settings at performance, 2xAA & 2xAF no V-Sync.
Issues:

When I bench in 3Dmark2003 I consistently get a 4500 score which seems about 1000-1100 points below what I should be getting at stock speeds. Thats -20%

My Aquamark GFX score is 5300 which seems in line with other 9800 128MB at stock speeds on the database. But then again, Aquamark barely tests DX9... while 3Dmark03 does more DX9 testing. Aquamark seems ok..

Now for some non-synthetic benches: My UT2003 flyby seems about -10% where it should be. I need to do more testing and I'll edit this post. Maybe do a reformat/clean install. Cause I have till tomorrow to RMA, so I want to see if this card (that seems to work fine) has issues rendering 3D slower then it should. If someone could suggest some more 3D benches that are heavily GPU dependent that would be cool, as I'm running my 1800+ T-bred A (crappy OCer) since my 1700+ finnally quit at 2600Mhz. Oh, and I have NOT OCed this VGA card, even though my brain is itching too
