    I know you guys are really enthusiastic about this, but I'd rather not. The CPU clock speed is not a problem here. It wasn't at 4.0GHz. Hell my CPU score is still above my GPU score so I won't see an improvement unless my GPU score improves.

    Guess i'm just very used to 3dmark 06, any MHz in that benchmark helps. vantage I dont run much so not sure how relevant CPU speed is to the overall score.

    What the hell kind of excuse is that? Since when is a legitimate reason needed to clock a cpu?

    I was still clocking the QX when 400Mhz only gave me like 50pts because of Physx. :D

    If it doesn't smell like ozone and hot (or smoldering) silicon when doing your bench runs, you're doing it wrong. :p lol.

    The difference between me and the top scorer is 2k points. I'm looking for something more than 50pts.

    Good god I hope not. That would short my rig. Are we assuming I went back into water cooling?

    My question exactly. It's probably the 40MHz on the memory which is 160MHz effective? lol No idea what he's doing to optimize.

    :laugh: wait... :mad:

    @ Binge your card's clocks are almost same as mine's and still our scores are different..have tried reinstalling the drivers?

    allso i'm using a fresh install..well not that fresh it has a couple of days.. still i think i must have something to do with your drivers

    Got a HDD, did a fresh install. Points rise by 30 points. I'm at a loss here guys. :confused:

    hoy crap :eek: im running out of ideas.. check your uncore frecuency, i run mine @ 4000 (its set on auto) your cpu seems fine..just in case give it a little bump in voltage (something like 0.05v) and disable any power play features on it and update the directX straight from microsoft..

    do you have the HT on? :wtf:

    :roll: my uncore would have to be 4GHz if I were running my ram at 2000MHz and 200BCLK, right? I don't use power play, and I can't update DX from microsoft because I already did that. Drop your memory frequency on the GPU to 1160, and let's see what you get?
