Yea, I wouldn't read too much into this (not that I do with synthetic benches anyway) but this seems buggy and unstable. Either that or it's not taking into account different settings when it calculates the score (or at least not correctly)

The tubing for my custom loop arrives tomorrow so here is hoping I can get a few more MHz out of this puppy . Anyway I think I'm going to drop back down to the driver JD used for his results or the newest beta driver and see if that works.

So my results aren't bad but that said I still wouldn't mind upgrading. Well maybe when the "780" comes out or something.
