The hwbot heaven benchmark runs only ones so I dont know really how to do what you just mentioned
So what is your 1070 MHz score without tessellation on?
Because this is what I am seeing, I am seeing a tessellation turned off score both clocks, which means that this "5600" score is CPU limited. That tells me that either speed you have your GPUs, it doesn't matter because essentially, you are not running a stressful benchmark. That would not be the case if you were running full Tessellation enabled.
You can dispute this by running again, with tessellation off, with GPU clocks at 1070 MHz, and the CPU the same. Secondly, you can do the following as I suggested before, run the standard Heaven benchmark 2.1, run it a full set of benchmarks, and leave it running for a few seconds with score displayed, and take a full screenshot with cobblestones in all their tessellationy goodness displayed. You will have to time it almost as soon as the score shows to get a good angle and to prevent suspicion that you are quickly alt+tabbing turning tessellation on while the score is showing.
Secondly, this won't stop you from Photoshopping a score onto the middle of it as its a static image, but there is a program out there can run a matrix-based uncompressing filter, its a plugin for Photoshop (which is enhanced by CUDA I might add) that detect photo manipulation by micropixellation distortion. A typical causes of misaligned pixel coloration is cut and pasted. Its pretty darn accurate, but its currently limited to square boxes, rectangles, and triangles.
You pass all that, and I will stop bothering you.
All you have to do is download the Heaven benchmark, and run it, although they run 2.1, you will need to download and install/run that version, the 2.5 would be fine, but I don't want your score hurting from it.

I have privately messaged him, I don't want to cause him stress. All I care about is accurate information on this forums. I have gotten to the point where I have friends here, I have a little earned respect here, but its an invaluable source of information, that I am becoming apart of. If we have a member in our ranks that has THE 3rd fastest benchmark score, it is a true honor that he wants to be here and share this with us.
That being said, this type of honor isn't just given out to just anybody, and respect is earned. If he can successfully jump through my hoops, he will win me over. If he can probably convince me, he will not have a hard time convincing just about everyone out there. The only results I am calling out are the Heaven results at this time.
They are too good to be believable, and I had no idea that Cat 11.2/.3 allowed you to turn Tessellation off. It really is no longer a decent benchmark / reliable one in my opinion and I can just let it go, but as it stands, as a member of OCN and HWBot, I feel compelled to step up and ask questions. 99% of the information out on the internet is bad and unreliable, and I want to do my part to make this forums and everywhere else more honest if I can help that.
