We overclocked Intel’s super-fast Core i7-2600K to an even faster 4.00 GHz to reduce CPU bottlenecks, while evaluating the performance of today’s cards. An efficiency-friendly 1.25 V minimized overclocking’s effect on platform power consumption.

OCZ’s Z1000M allows us to measure total system power at minimal loss of just over 10%.
