Also looks like you missed at least one of the ones with PPU on Here and tbh if they aren't giving a link to the orb for the submission theres prolly not much way to know for sure if they used a ppu or not. On the link it at least verifies they had it on unless is says OK in that validity column.

Thanks for the heads up. I was wondering, can PPU be detected just by looking at the scores?

 

I'll update the scores later today.

 

Edit: Thanks to TropicalPreist. I now know that the score being pumped up by PhysX is the CPU test 2. It goes up from 31.65 to 160.55, when using a 4GHz i7. So it's pretty easy to determine if PhysX was used or not.

So I can post an Orb link, but it won't do much good since it still says it's invalid because I'm not using an official nVidia driver (Win7 drivers don't count I guess) so I pasted a copy of the options tab

 

Here's my screencap. Clearly a lower score than I posted before so it would be silly to lie about this one...

This is with my oc profile enabled. I would try to go for 16000 but im just to lazy and it took forever to dial in the 285 to where im comfortable. Enjoy fellas!!

Hmm, why is my setup so bad at 3DMark? It did poorly in 06 too so I didn't bother posting it, but plays games just fine. Is it because my CPU & RAM are not OC'd at all and the GPU was barely OC'd ?

Not to sure, but the first picture my cpu is on stock clocks. Same as you but, we also have different GFX cards. btw your setup is not bad at 3dmark.
