I deleted the compare url for that run. It had the 'Deep Freeze' score at 160 something FPS. IMO that was about twice as much as it should have been for the settings then. But I've been playing around and have improved my score progressively.

I'm up to 21,255 with this E8600 chip and finally broke the 2.0 barrier on CPU2 Red Valley test with 2.02 FPS.

E8600 @ 4.33 4870x2 @ 800/955

Score: 21,255
SM 2.0: 9210
SM 3.0: 12,077
