i went from 8499
down to

7907

and im trying to work my self up to that again ...


i now have the core set at 420
and 1.30Mhz ...

but i dont think its going to let me push it higher then that ... i dont know .. i now got my score up to

7995... this sucks ...

But i have been playing around in my BIos 2day .. trying to over clock my processor...

but dropping 600points is a big deal to me!

I'm not sure how coolbits would drop your score...All it does is add a registry value to show the other options in the nvidia control panel. It doesn't do anything other than that. It doesn't affect my scores at all. Did you install anything else that may cause this change?

You did this before or after your score dropped?

Also if you change any settings in nvidia control panel your scores are likely to change. Sometimes even overclocking too much can drop your score.
