Small update*

Results of flashing to 6970 Lightning BIOS = ... *drumroll* ... nothing... GPU wont POST frown.gif ...qwk flick of the BIOS switch and we are back and working though.. no biggie wink.gif


** I have not had a chance to move forward with the switching freq mod yet.. been too busy getting in submissions for this months OC comp thumb.gif .. putting together a X58 build right now too as another dedicated bench rig.

another small update*

Just Cause 2- Concrete Jungle Benchmark
1680x1050, AA-8x, AF-8x
All features set to 'high', Shadow Q-Med

1075mhz core @ 1.35v core, 1.17v VTT
1410mhz mem @ 1.63v
idle temp-40c
load temp- 44c




There was a significant improvement in vdroop on the VTT circuit after removing the stock fan/cooler from the PCB-> helping stability at high clocks I will be adding additional capacitors to the PCB to try to gain some more clock speed beyond the current limit of 1080mhz.

So when does this card get the frozen treatment?

soon.. I have 6x other GPU's ahead of it ..prepped and mod'd, as soon as my new mobo arrives . *Have seen that most of these Cayman cores have CB issues below -0c ...only a handful are lucky enough to have 1x that scales under real cold.. *fingers crossed*

I still have temp headroom for more speed and voltage on water too...just got to get this power issue solved so I can run +1080core stable.

....I had to tweak some latency on this i5 CPU .. noticed that system latency is bottlenecking the GPU still.. I get 2FPS for every 1ns in latency I drop from NB/RAM. The GPU is also working harder now too..and hitting limits close to 20mhz lower than previously [I have not adjusted system voltages other than VTT/IMC for the CPU.. vcore and GPUv remain the same..as well as RAM and CPU speed].

*anyhow.. here are some updated scores with much better efficiency.


19.3k Vantage- 22.9k GPU score



6k 3D'11- 6500 GPU score

Push that PCI-E as far as you can!

Agreed ..the mobo is not *240blck wall for booting..can push farther from windows.. Ram starts crapping out qwk though. I would really have to get some better IC's to push into the +245 range.. I was running 240bclk for daily use, but lowered to run higher QPI and cas7 The NB just wouldnt run 4.3ghz and cas7 mem..

*As for pushing PCI-E.. please keep in mind, I am pushing on a daily user right now..not a bench rig. These are full bloat OS and drivers..I have done all the basics like shutdown all other programs etc, and disable explorer for the bench runs of course... but I am positive there are much more improvements to make in a benching aspect. I plan on doing this soon... new mobo just arrived.
