Congrats thumb.gif I guess this means BOTH are gone now, because someone else PM'd me he/she? was picking up one last week too. 

I think that that Bladestorm guy should owe me a commission darnit. biggrin.gif

The two programs don't play very well together. This is what I do every time i change my settings. I use Trixx, every time I change my clocks to a different setting i hit reset and then I open CCC and see if My Power tune setting has changed. Sometimes when I change my clocks it will go back to zero%. Step 1. Hit the reset button in Trixx. Step 2. Check Power tune in CCC and see if your setting has changed if so then change back to where you want it and hit apply. Step 3. Go back in to Trixx and change your clocks to where you want them. and then do your benchmark; your score should improve a great deal. I had this problem when I started benchmarking. sometimes i would get like a low score in the low 2000 in furmark (because Power tune was screwing up) but every time do these steps Power tune works correctly and I can get a score as high at 4000 depending on what you set Power tune at. Try this and see if this works.

i know what you're saying. ccc messes with custom fan profiles in trixx to. everytime i boot my computer i have to load oc profile in trixx and then switch to custom fan profile - even if its already on custom fan profile (because it actually isn't because ccc over rides it so i have to switch to manual or auto - then back to custom for it to work). dunno if that made sense haha! also after doing that i have to check power is on 20% in ccc. standard routine when i boot my computer!

[quote name="LA_Kings_Fan"
Every thread I look at on OCN they post the Score NUMBERS not the FPS ... and I post the LINK back to the score results anyways ...
Hmmm dunno why ET900's score shows a GTX-570 ? I'll look at it ... I know after awhile the Links tend to expire it looked like to me, maybe I messed up the ID # Link ?

I somehow got the the Link ID # wrong when I copied/pasted/edited something ? and it shows a score from a GTX-570 card in your spot on the FRONT PAGE Google list for the Furmark / 3d11 benches ... I'm looking back through your posts trying to find when you posted the info and get it corrected, already 5 weeks back in the thread and still looking though blushsmiley.gif I'll get it resolved somehow. But Kings Game coming up so might have to wait until tomorrow. :lashot:

Had a little free time this afternoon, so for Schlitz malt liquor and giggles I went onto NewEgg and the Old TOXIC link, (NO they're no back in stocksad-smiley-002.gif) but I went through ALL of the reviews to see what numbers I'd come up with compared to what we have here ...

 

The  Results = Total of 118 Toxic Cards / 89 claimed UnLocks / 17 Locked / 12 UnKnowns = Succesful UnLock Rate of 75% (would be 85% if the 12 unknows unlocked ?)

Granted I know you have to take NewEgg reviews with a grain of salt because they may not always be truthful, though I did see a lot of names from Our Toxic Club over there smile.gif, but the numbers match up fairly well and close to what I have in post #879 

 

 

Anyways I doubt the results suprise anyone here, but it's nice to get a bit more reinforcement ... The TOXIC is / was the best HD-6950 card to get ... PERIOD !
