what version of drivers are you running on the card....this may be totally incorrect, but i remember hearing one of my friends telling me that he was trying to oc' his radeon, but couldnt because the newer ATI drivers actually block you from doing so.....maybe that is your problem. As for oc'ing the cpu, i have never had great luck with overclocking on any gigabytes....sorry i dont have more help....

went out today and bought another stick of 256 ddr 2700 ram 333 ram and a pc slot 3500 rpm fan to go with my 2 other case fans...left cpu voltages,pc voltages, and ram voltages stock, but increased the system bus to make cpu run 1900 mhz.
then over clocked card core clock 450 mhz
and mem clock 348 mhz
now getting 11500 on 3d se 2001..
happy i broke the 11000 benchmark
