The people of these forums pride them selves on running untweaked legitimate benchamrks to compete against each other, it's the gentleman's code you have broken.

Tweaking via third party or driver control panel creates a messy leader-board.

+4

We are also using Windows 8 which gives us a nice little small advantage, myself and Locky that is.

Then there's me pushing my hardware as far as it goes in windows 7. :o

Thought I'd add my score to the thread, I am Matt's nemesis after all, and living up the title have pipped him by a couple marks. :D

I'll have another bash in the morning at 5.1ghz and see if it improves. If not, you win this round sir!

Just wanted to make it a little more interesting, hopefully you will have beaten it by the morning. I know you have a little more in the tank. :eek:

Looking forward to the challenge, though I don't think I will be able to go much higher. ;)

I don't but then i don't push my GPU that hard, there not cheap and i'm chicken :o

Anyway, i have a lot of careful reading to do before i update scores.

yes you do :(

Locky... the OP on that OC.Net forum is actually seeing that score of yours as real o.O
*well it is real but you know what i mean*

Just done another run.

Cpu 3930k @ 4.9ghz (mostly unstable)

GPU 7970 @ 1355mhz/1900 (1.337v)

I don't think I will be beating this score, pretty all my rig has to give without damaging it.

Does CPU speed effect the benchmark?

Haven't really played with Valley but with Heaven it made no difference

Not entirely sure, only did two runs in total. One at 5.15GHz with the memory at 2150MHz, and the second at 5.2GHz with the memory running at 2133MHz. The scores were almost identical.

Haven't tried lower CPU frequencies, but at 1080p the CPU can make a small difference in most benchmarks I have tried with the 7970 at the clocks I was running.
