So shouldnt it be a similar case with a Titan, especially since they're almost the same card?
Did you bench your 780 with a 3770K? Why would you do that if you have a 3930K?
Also, how much of a difference is it in Valley going from a 3770K to a 3930K with the same GPU at the same clocks?

My score with 3.9 is 98.1, so it goes 95.5, 98.1, 102.6 for 3.5, 3.9, 5.0. Yes, it is about gpu horsepower, I was just saying with one Titan you would get a little boost from ocing the chip, but if you had two Titans you would see a bigger increase in score by taking the chip up.
Yes you can run a somewhat unstable oc to get your score. It should be at least a little stable though, otherwise it would probably give you trouble. Your gpu and cpu oc just have to be stable enough to get your f12 screenshot, besides that it doesn’t matter. This thread is about getting the highest score you can, not about long term stability with regard to your gpu and cpu oc.
Yes, I'm at F5 defaults. Should I post the boost speed of 3.9GHz instead of the stock speed of 3.5GHz? I've always benched with the CPU at stock but I wasnt sure which speed to post, so I posted the stock speed instead of the boost speed.
How do achieve the least amount of stability that is required for temporary benching? I cant run stability tests such as prime95 because it takes the temps to 95c. Would it be safe to put in random values such as 50x multiplier at 1.45v, just for the period of benching?

What kind of temperature does Valley hit with an overclocked 3770K, considering the ambient temps are always 30c+?
I apologize to everyone for derailing this thread.
