Are you sure? mine was still 5.1 even when my CPU was running stock @2.60GHZ...

Even ran 5.1 still with my old OC'd E5300 @3.0GHZ.

Overclocked as in 'Increased clock speed'?

And there's special 3rd party programs you can use, such as RivaTuner.

Actually he was referring to overclocking the CPU which will raise the graphics score substantially but for that to happen you need also need a substantial overclock on the CPU like going from 3.0GHz to 4.05Ghz. Overclocking the GPU makes very little difference in the WEI score. I get a 7.2 rating on both grapics and gaming with my single GTX280 because of my CPU overclock.
