Im pretty sure that 4.4Ghz fixed CPU core frequencies are not going to equal '4.4Ghz' CB20 score achieved through PBO, even with the use of the EDC bug.
The EDC bug will raise the 'auto' all core frequency of the CPU, while at the same time providing higher single core boost speeds.
If you have work loads that use all you cores and are not bothered about the lower single core boost clocks then there is really no reason to be using the EDC PBO bug.
Now for those who dont mind slightly lower all core boost frequencies compared to static frequency overclock (EDC bug is definitely better compared to 'regular' PBO) but would like nice single core boost speeds this bug is great.
Though alot of work is needed to find a balance on achievable boost speeds as the cores all differ with regards to max frequencies .....
Myself personally, the highest ive hit in CB20 (using EDC bug) is 3927 and the all core frequency according to HWinfo64 was alternating between 4280-4300 mhz.
To confirm my theory, can you run a 4.3Ghz CB20 and post back you score.
Im guessing it will be more than the 3927 I achieved....
