Charlie- the edit is so easy! Well, now that I know how to do it. I'll give you a guide, full of every detail. You gotta tell me what you can run at 1.4v!!
xoleras- Your core clocks were higher with a lower score. What was your memory at for your best run?
Well motherboard optimization definitely effects the graphics score. I've found that most quad SLI boards that are based on Z77 using the PLX chip will produce a poor graphics score,
because the PLX chip (for quad SLI) introduces additional latency to the PCI E lanes. With normal Z77 boards the PCIE lanes run full speed, while the PLX chip for quad sli introduces some timing issues. This is for z77 only and not x79, not sure how x79 works there - I assume x79 gets full pci express 3 speeds across all lanes. Z77 is definitely hobbled in that respect... Anyway I don't have that issue with the PLX chip, but I just have to dial my motherboard BIOS settings some. My memory is @ 520 in afterburner, I bet I can do more. We'll see what happens
