here are my benchies.... I didnt really over clock my cpu to a degree.. my Mobo told me that my current settings for my cpu's HT is 2400 and NB 2200 and when I turned off C State 6 it pushes the Core speed with a constant Vcore of 1.3 never hitting 1.4 ever even in loads....
I also noticed if I push my multiplier for more core speed it actually dethrottles my GPU's performance as I did testings for the past 8 hours trying to find that sweet spot where I get the best of both my gpu and cpu. my current GPU HD 7970 DirectCU II...
What grinds me the most is my friend is a full on nvidia an intel fan boy and has done nothing but slate me for going with amd and ati.. he did his results for 3D Mark 11 on stock settings and scored 900points more then I did... his specs is a i5 2500k with a MSI Lightning GTX 680 fair enough he spent $200 more!!! then i did compared to my 7970.. but still pisses me off cause now i get him constantly bragging every hour.
anyways...... love my AMD my rig costs about $300 less then his INTEL and Nvidia.
Over Drive: 4.2.6
3D Mark 11 1.0.4: Perfomance Preset
