Default Vantage Run/First Build results

Hi all, I tested my first build with vantage. The vantage setting was default on performance. My Nvida control panel was left at default but i did only change my power management mode to prefer maxium performance. I feel like my CPU did well, i wish i could say the same for my GPU. Here are my results ORB - Compare

Are my results normal for my hardware? I did use precision and set my core clock to 680, shader to 1466, memory to 1030 and fan at 100. If something is wrong or i should receive a better score please let me know. Thank you.

Seems about right for a single 295...great CPU Score. You're already at 4 Ghz with that I7...now you simply have to "push" the GPU for a greater score.
this is what I was able to achieve with my I7 @ 3.9 Ghz and 2 x GTX 280's
ORB - Compare

btw....nice work on your first build!!

Sweet, thats cool that you can compare our scores. I need to learn how to do that. Yeah, i OCed my CPU from some video i saw on youtube and using a Titan Fenrir heatsink. It seems to run great. I only get problems trying to OC my GPU while using precision because the stupid program wont let me test my settings first so i haven't been able to find its sweet spot. Yesterday i cranked it up some number and while playing Left 4 Dead it froze during a huge explosion. Speaking of Left 4 Dead, i get a bit of miss alignment while i am turning on the video, it goes away when i set the vsync on in the game but then i get mouse lag. Any clues on how to fix that. I think i should be able to play that game at max settings don't you think?

Yes you should be able to play it at Max...no idea how to fix it as I'm not into L4D...
