The 1M test is what most OC'ers run. It's a single-core program, so your times come down to sheer processing speed. You want to keep an eye on the time it takes to run the 1M test. (11.246s in my above test compared to a low of 13.4 on my E6600 that was clocked at 3.6GHz.)

i7-2700k @ 5.0 GHz
Nvidia GeForce 570 2.5GB Tri-SLI
Asus P67 WS Revolution (Tri-SLI)
OCZ Vertex SSD x 4 (Raid 5)
G.Skill 8GB DDR3 @ 1600MHz
PC Power & Cooling 950W PSU
