    It takes a lot to get an 8500 past 12k, congrats on the current score. I would suggest turning every little detail you can to its lowest, defragging your hdd, turning off the splash screens in 3dmark, killin ALL programs and services other than 3dmark, and benchin after a reboot. The should net you the 40 points needed .
