    Fire Strike graphics score is +40% and Time Spy graphics score is +60% compared to my oc 980m SLI.
    That would be worthy upgrade. Now I hope your screen upgrade goes smoothly

    Bit of a GPU OC, +250 core +500 mem, FS Ultra 7861
    #2 FS Ultra score with 1070 SLI

    http://www.3dmark.com/fs/13040495

    If only it could validate.

    Max fans, bloody loud but CPU + master max on these short runs at low 60s, slave in mid 60s

    I meant which of the 4 listed combined scores, FS, FSE, FSU, or TS? Can you link your single gpu score you're talking about?

    Combined score for FS standard.

    http://www.3dmark.com/fs/12996188

    The graphics score is way better obviously but I think the combined score is being dragged down by the physics score. But then I am using a higher thank stock TDP so that might have factored into the score as well.

    Stock clocks with the modded TDP scored about 15808 in FS standard.
    http://www.3dmark.com/fs/13030496

    +130 to the core with a stock vBIOS of 115W scored less.
    http://www.3dmark.com/fs/11544953

    So I do feel that the extra power draw is improving the combined score. To be sure I'd have to flash the stock vBIOS again and retest for driver consistency. But that's my hunch.

    Max fans, a few of the standard mods on the stupid gaps everywhere around the fans and grilles, and with the bottom case off I saw GPU temps stabilise around 63C/69C overnight (eth mining, -200/+675). As soon as I put the case back on temps went up a few degrees so next I think I'll get ahold of some fine mesh and cut sections of the bottom to give the fans less restrictive intakes

    I experimented with a strip of thermal pad between the slave gpu grill and the small cpu one to see if some of the heat would get to the (stone cold) top part, it does nothing

    Expanding foam would be cool but probably hard to manage.

    Finally figured out how to get 3dm11 working, have to directly run the 32 bit .exe outside of steam

    3DMark11 Score
    18587
    Graphics Score
    37916
    Physics Score
    7466
    Combined Score
    7180
    Graphics Test 1
    128.72 fps
    Graphics Test 2
    220.65 fps
    Graphics Test 3
    283.74 fps
    Graphics Test 4
    118.5 fps
    Physics Test
    23.7 fps
    Combined Test
    33.4 fps

    The CPU physics/combined scores 1/3rd lower than 6700K@4.5, definitely holding it back the GPUs were stuck at 80-90% and 80-100W on GT1 and GT4 and down to 30-40W on Combined. Non-CPU limited tests (GT2/GT3) where both GPUs were constant 100%/115W show +65% over the overclocked 980Ms

    http://www.3dmark.com/compare/3dm11/12264408/3dm11/11944730

    TL;DR CPU/DDR3 is really holding it back in synthetics, even at stock power limit.

    Also BCLK in Intel XTU seems not to stick. Never changes from 99.8MHz

    No way the GPU should be held back that much on those with the GPU tests though the benchmark is pretty old now. Try downclocking the 6700K for an interesting comparison.

    physics score should be at least double. so it could be something in the bios causing the low score.
