Jaydeehobbit`s 3DMark - Ice Storm score: 214825 marks with a GeForce GTX 670
I tried for hours to bump my GPU and CPU OC... Kingpin I am not.
Was still a fun and interesting process though. I found that with a higher CPU OC and the same GPU OC my Fire score actually went down.

What driver are you using may I ask?
Hehe... I was shocked that the tiny .3 ghz CPU OC bump gave such an increase to the points.

I'm using 314.21 but I think the beta version just before it gave better results. Not sure but I think they were a little bit better.

I just noticed my cloudgate score also went WAY down with the higher OC...
This whole OC biz makes my brain explode sometimes...

The last 2 OC events have been fun for me at least.

Now someone with a couple 670's or 680's or 7970's or even the dreaded Titan's (and who actually knows what they are doing in OC) is sure to make grass of my @ss.

I've reached about the maximum of my newb OC skillz... had fun doing it while learning a bit more about how to OC and that's cool... wasted freaking hours on it though.

I know the feeling. Nothing sucks more than trying to get that little bit more and getting a worse score with higher clocks.
