    I am not hiding anything

    Sadly I have not had a chance to do any runs yet outside of stock ones

    The system does not like overclocking inside, so I need to get it outside to cool it down

    I sat mine in front of an AC when benching, although not sure if it really made much of a differance. Just wish I had more time with my system, I was shooting to take down both Mandrake and Rengsey. Guess it'll be a while. ;)

    Oh, and be kind to your SSD when you take it outside :p

    My replacement SSD should arrive next week lol

    Lesson learned. Let it warm up slowly and powered OFF for a few hours between inside and outside time lol

    Yeah there should not be any excuse. I did not have to go outside to get my scores. I did it all at room temperature. It does not even get cold in Norther Cali at that time. :eek:

    well mine is coming in next week and we shall see how it scores. I quickly become very bored with benching and i will try and see what i get but my enthusiasm will quickly fade.

    BTW if anyone can find a 920 in the 600-700 range lemme know

    Well to shut you all up.....I have some preliminary runs ;)

    3DMark06: 18686
    3DMark Vantage: P13616
    GPU: 13873
    CPU: 12902

    The cpu score was weak on the vantage run, I have gotten 13600 on CPU before at similar clocks, that would have put the overall past P14k ;)

    Since the GPU clocks are not showing properly in ORB, the clocks were 665/1100. I will be sure to take screenshots for you in the future.

    YOU ALL HAPPY NOW?! ;)
