Never did a Heaven run before - I'm more of an XP guy. Any tips you can offer? I could probably post up a fairly decent GTX 460 768MB score tonight. The hardware I have at the ready is 2 x X5677 at 4.6ish on an SR-2.

edit...

Okay - some direct questions...

Vista vs. 7?
# CPU cores used?
HT on vs. off?
Shaders and core locked vs. unlocked?
Importance of mem freqs & timings?
Rye vs. Scotch?

the thing is that heaven hardly scales with CPU power, it's more of a pure GPU power bench

so it's pretty simple, get a nice OC on your cpu so you don't get bottlenecked and let the clock fly on the VGAs
