Hay guys.... yeah Congrats FtW :)......I removed my Scores.......after discussing with massman....


It apears that if you lower the BCLK within windows after boot, that for some reason it alters the time frame of the full run time of the benchmark, thus giving more frames, witch intern gives a higher score. (I set 133 BCLK after previusly discussing downcloking with SF3D, and was told dont go lower than 133 BCLK....but that was a number of weeks ago before fully testing)



Im sure this will be explaned In detail buy Massman and other that have done the testing.....It would have been nice to no this last week though :)....but no biggy


Happy benching
