Disabled my secondary display and the score improved dramatically, go figure. I guess because it was running in windowed mode it didn't like that very much. Still doesn't seem to stress components out that much. Also seems to be highly CPU dependant. High and low resolution seem to make a smaller difference for me than you all but that's because my CPU is not overclocked.
My rig did quite poorly HI - 4367, yet the benchmark rarely was over 50% on any core, ram hovered around 34% used.

Maybe the load time is playing into it, I somewhat remember my number being higher than most in the screen shots in the thread.
