Haha know exactly what you mean

Once you have passed 3:00 AM you will be up until 6-7AM before you can go to sleep^^

Seratonin production is vastly delayed by Hardware radiation, that is why most extreme hardware and pc enthusiasts go to sleep much later than common people^^

Re done 3dmark11@ 1Ghz:


[cba1986][GTX 580 Lightning][1000/2250@1.149V][ID=35C/LD=69C]
**3DMark11: P7884**
***3DMark Vantage: P25958***

I still cannot explain the low score of vantage(maybe OC related or HT related) but the mark11 scores is consistent with the GPU OC.

Since there does seem to be a major difference between overclocking single-GPU and multi-GPU setups, I suggest a seperate SLI section.

On another note, my cards won't even pass 3dmark11 at 940GHz at any voltage anymore...

Congratulations you have ascended to the 1.GHZ V.I.P section!!!

Your entry has been updated and you are currently 4th place!

Nice job!!
The only thing you can do now is improve your Vantage scores

Good idea I too thought SLI and higher should be ranked among each other since their scores and core clocks cannot be compared to the others.

Yes I will definately take that into the concept!


Any other wishes for the full modification of the Hall of Fame?

Thanks man.
I don't like correcting people, but i figure at 985 in the OP.

Kill the yellow pound signs please! Headaches!!!

Also, what is the deal with EVGA back-plates for cards? What is the point of them?

Oddly enough, I'd guess it's the newest drivers causing that Eric. My max OC dropped from around 855MHz to 840Mhz when I installed them (don't recall the version offhand and not at home to check, but whatever is current whql forceware version).

Which kind-of bummed me out, but then when I saw my 3dMark11 GPU score went up like 500 points despite the lower clock ... it made me a bit happier. Haven't really checked w/other benchies/games though to see if the improvement was more widespread than just 3dm11.

Only problem is his motherboard doesn't have any means for additional power to the PCIe other than through the 24-pin, you might want to look at their motherboards before suggesting that.

The connector you pointed out is is the CD IN which is even more legacy than the last thing you mistook for power. The only two types of dedicated PCIe power inputs I've seen on motherboard are Molex 4-pin, which is the most common form of additional PCIe power and most people should be familiar with them because just about every modern power supply has atleast a few of them so they are a quite common connector, and SATA power which is less common but is used on your motherboard and is the standard power connector for things like HDDs and ODDs.

Here is a Molex connector on the P67 Maximus Extreme, right above the top red PCIe x16 slot, and that's where I'd say is it's most common connector (molex) and the most common location (above the first PCIe slot).



This picture shows both of the only connectors I've seen on motherboards for PCIe power, the male 4pin molex on the left and the male 15 pin SATA on the right.



Baasha, I would say you'll be fine with your set up but it is something to keep in mind if you got for really high overvolts and OCs that you're cards could technically be pulling 225w from the 24-pin in addition to the rest of the load of the motherboard. This would be especially concerning when running things that load all three cards to 100% consistently for a long period of time or for programs that pull an unrealistic amount of power like Furmark (which is of zero use to you anyway with OCP, so just steer clear of Furmark and OCCT GPU test and the like). That said while your cards can technically pull up to 225w from the motherboard they likely won't even get close to that because from what I've heard GPUs nowadays are trying to pull the vast majority of their power through their PSU connections and very little through the motherboard. This product from EVGA seems like it would be a good idea for you, especially if you plan a large overvolt. At $10 it seems like a winner to me, just be sure to install it correctly.
Overclocked 580s can pull more than 250w each, just a couple days ago I ran vantage with 4x 580s, 1 x 990x, 6 case fans (2 x ultra kaze, 4 x s-flex), 1 x ssd & an mcp655 pump. That was all that was powered by 2 x psu that drew 1900 watts from the wall plugs (had the kill-a-watts on).



Cooling was a bit strange, only had 3 x gtx480 waterblocks & couldn't use the third & still fit the tall asus card on the board, on air the card was a furnace & couldn't overclock, so ran that one on ln2, 2 on water & 1 on air. But got decent clocks at least this way.

Boards that have the connector are mostly in the GA family.

UD3
UD5
UD7
UD9
X58A-OC

Rampage III has it also though ...so we would have to make a list of boards that actually support berg.

But you are right his board does not have the connectors so no use there unfortunetly.
He may have to individually test the cards to achieve the highest possible clock.

Juano I am happy that you are following the thread but please also post when you don´t think you are disproving something
Gigabyte was confused, the ud3, ud5 & ud7 have no extra connectors to suplly the pci-e, for gigabyte only the ud9 & x58a-OC. The Evga 4-way sli & Asus r3e are the only other boards I know of that have them.

The molex on my P8P667 WS Revo says hello. Also that p67 above and therefore also z68 maximus iv extreme.
I totally forgot about 1155 boards in there, good catch! Never really looked at 1156 or AMD boards so have no idea if there are any supplemental pci-e with those ones either.
