3DMark05: Why does CPU score go down after GPU OC?


My settings are in my sig. Any comments on why my CPU score went down?
Thanks in advance!

On my first 3DMark05 about 2 weeks (stock settings no OC'ing):
3DMark - 7542
CPU: - 6260

3DMark05 from today (with OC'd GPU & stock CPU):
3DMark - 9959
CPU - 5882

Looks like the cpu was more busy/taxed by the video card being bumped up.

Thanks AlabamaCajun. I had a hunch but didn't have anything to compare my results with
Now that I have my GPU all juiced, I'll have to get OC'ing my CPU

Edit: Actually I now have managed to squeeze a 9959/6200 after some tweaking and a couple tries.
