|it's a well known fact that electronics run faster at lower temperature (to a point)|
Or do you mean that it just decreases the incidence of faults?

you shouldn't sompare the 8890 to his 5680 (i think). totally diff machines. i realize that downclock almost always decreases performance, this is one of those exceptions. his unit is probably full of dust and overheated and his gpu is too hot to perform at its best. it's a well known fact that electronics run faster at lower temperature (to a point), so i think this is what's happening, the cpu cools off enough and allows the previously handicapped gpu to perform like it should. any other theories are welcome because this is indeed friggin' weird

I guess I misunderstood it to have been a before and after comparison on the same machine.
