TITANs @ 1176/3758 MHz. Tried lowering CPU to 4.8, 4.7, lowering mem OC, setting LLC back to high and I´m still getting way worse results than before.
...that's because some of the 'lists' here contain things which are actually mutually exclusive
- I have seen two tips here on 'performance' settings that if you use them both at the same time, for example tri-SLI GTX 670 scores dropped
from 5694 to 5430 - "Caveat emptor", I suppose....best do a clean driver re-install
...I think FtW420, Alatar and others have already given a pretty good hint (more than once) what shouldn't be allowed...and folks have yet to confront the 'legality' of for example custom BIOS w/200%++ PowerTargets etc...that's what I meant with slippery slope earlier.... at the end of the day, all the 'tweaks' really are are win7 registry settings.
...on my system, and using the tri-SLI as a base (rather than the quad-SLI I also run), I gained s.th. like 200 points by coming up with a custom cooling solution for the stock-air-cooled cards...simply put, I traded some syringes of liquid metal TIM for an extra-long flexible SLI bridge used by some of the pros...once I eliminated the Asus tri-bridge hard 'PCB' and substituted the longer flex-bridge, the cards could breathe much better, and the 1st and 2nd card weren't at 71 C+ by 'scene 4 out of 18' already (thus throttling already). I gained another 270 score points by fundamentally changing main memory (quad channel) via different speeds and timing...
