Your score looks about right for 2-Way SLI.

Stock clocks? (sorry, hard to see).

Seems about right if it's stock...

For stock 680's that looks about right. If they're overclocked then it's a little low.

I get 21K on GPU score with 670s that are heavily overclocked. 17K for GPU looks about right. What are your RAM freq/ timings? I noticed that 2133Mhz @ 9-10-10-24 added almost 600 points to overall score.

Not necessarily, it depends on the application and many other factors.

Why is the name of the image fbac8e70_penis.png?

On topic, GTX 680 stock does like 8500 in 3DMark11 so this seems alright. The GPU usage does look odd, but I don't think it's unusual for SLI. Many things can limit your GPU's. Does this problem also affect games?

There is your problem... My GPU usage in BF3 also varies between 80-95%
