Stargate, nice job. I would probably die of boredom running 45 benches. However did you take into account there is a significant points difference (around 200-500 pts) in benching the SAME setup?
In some ways I have found that getting more points is not linear. In some cases my higher overclock yielded LESS points. Hence, the SWEET SPOT.
The graphical relationship between the Overcloking of the CPU, GPU/s, and RAM is probably 3 dimensional. Each increase in one factor affects where the sweet spot is located.
There is not that much of a difference, even in AquaMark 3, between successive benchmark runs. I did multiple ones a couple of times to see what the difference was and it was minimal.
The relationship is 3-dimensional, but my RAM is crappy so I did it given a specific RAM speed. Ideally speaking, running everything as high/fast as possible will give you the best score. If it doesn't, I imagine the culprit is stability. To avoid this, I made sure I had my system well below what it was capable of achieving.
