You don't seem to realise what the scope of the article is nor what site is publishing it. This is to attempt world records. These guys have wrappers around benchmarks to ensure that the submitted results were not skewed, so every frame, millisecond, point, means everything in a competition.
FYI Overclock.net is in third place worldwide in the Team League competition, so this is an issue, especially for many OCN'ers.
Besides, if this is proven to be the case, the implications are that, if you have your PC overclocked (also) using the BCLK, you basically can't trust any results that rely on time your PC calculated, and that goes beyond benchmarks.

Did you change the BCLK or just upped the multiplier ?Edited by tpi2007 - 8/18/13 at 3:38pm
