I understand its all in the name of fun, but when people purposely skew there test results for a little forum glory, its no longer fun.

I was asked via PM to re run the benchmark, without any LOD or anything else. However not having GTX470's anymore makes that impossible. So instead here is my results with 3 GTX480's @ 925/1850/4400 and an i7 920 at 4.4Ghz.
