It's only 3 lines in one of the config files in the Afterburner folder. It's pretty easy. Just have to search either this thread of the internet for the 3 lines to copy and paste in there, so, up to you which version I suppose. I heard 2.2.4 correctly reads Power Usage though.

You had 80.04.28.00.3A and had to reflash? Or 80.04.29.00.3A which is locked? I have 80.04.28.00.3A.
80.04.28.00.3A is the unlocked one. 80.04.29.00.3A is the locked one.

Flashing nowadays is really easy on these. Much easier than I remember when I looked into flashing my 570s back before the 600-series. Fear not.

Damn it. I get just over 13,000 at roughly the same clocks. I still want to know why my Graphics Score seems about 500pts lower than everyone else running ~1480/7200. I was on the same drivers as you as well.
Full throttle, 1489MHz on the core. Unfortunately I was a bit in a hurry, so I didnt get time to tune my CPU properly.
