Okay resolved my issue.

1. Disable amd graphics overdrive.
2. Download MSI Afterburner 3.0.0 beta 5

3. Click settings in MSI Afterburner
4. Enable everything you see in the screenshot

Alrighty, using those settings, I also get an 9000+ score:

With a 1245MHz core overclock, I'm getting 9370, a bit higher than you hamster. When I clock at 1200MHz, my score drops to 9146. Here are the comparisons:

http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/6077451 @ 1200MHz

Your physics score is only a bit slower than mine. Try the 13.1 driver and see if that boosts you up a bit.

Sorry, just realized my CPU frequency was different in those tests. I used auto overclock on the first test and it decided on 4.326 (45x103). The second OC was manual, 42x100. Sorry for the oversight.

Strange. I have the same CPU as you (i5 2500k) overclocked at 4.2ghz as well and rececing quite a lower physics/combined score. I wonder why this is

I wouldn't be disappointed; your card is performing well. I've messed around with various settings and have concluded the best stable clock for my card is 1200MHz and memory 1500MHz. That's a huge overclock from stock 975MHz. And remember, that's with no voltage tweak because the card doesn't allow messing with voltage, at least no program that i've seen allows it. Great card for $240.

I guess memory clocking past the stock 1500 don't really do much on 3dmark11 bench. But here's mine anyways.
