    Yep, a nice little increase. Cracking gfx scores by Davanius and Majnu. This is as far as mine will go in sync. Next step will be separate known stable settings per card, and oc the cpu and ram for an increase in physics/combined. Does ram speed help much in fs/3dm 11? Ive had this kit upto 2133 mhz at 9-10-10 21, 96 trfc.

    The CPU and RAM are very high on the attributes for 3DMark11 but not so much in Firestrike.

    Scores all updated.

    Are you sticking with the Q6600 Draken or is that just for now?

    Gave my lappy a run just to see how it'd do:

    http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/784890
    Score: 1711
    Gfx: 1778
    Physics: 6447
    Combined: 718

    Intel Core i7-3630QM Processor @ stock (2400)
    GTX 660M @ stock (405 / 2500)
    Air cooled, closed case, no cooling pad.

    I'll clock up a bit and see if I can do better. Already beats my old desktop.
    ( Desktop: http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/784304 i5 750 stock, 5750 stock
    I'll try to beat those scores too so although I'm miles from the chart its nice to have somewhere to refer back to! :D )

    Improved but not by much, got artifacting when I pushed the graphics much. Still, gains me a place in the leaderboard.

    Highest artifact-free run:
    http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/788896
    Score: 1941
    Gfx: 2029
    Physics: 6460
    Combined: 818

    Intel Core i7-3630QM Processor @ stock (2400)
    GTX 660M +135 / +350

    I'll probably OC the CPU too, but its actually pretty hot already, so not much room :( don't think I'll be able to catch Incinerat0r / Meaker in the chart :( unless I find some other drivers or something.

    Hoping to upgrade in next 2-3 months, subject to finance.

    My old GTX 480 was driving me crazy with the noise, it had to go!!!

    Fair play mate :)

    Does it seem to hold the 780 back much in games or is it holding its own?

    This really depends on the game, but yes in general the Q6600 is holding 780 back.

    As example on lotro I was hoping for better fps over my last card, after looking at my cpu usage it was maxing out 2 cores and gpu usage was around 40-60%.

    On need for speed most wanted, gpu sits around 90-100% so this being gpu bound.

    I play on 27inch monitor 2560x1400.
