So I upped the volts to 1.25v. It didn't crash after that, but I was getting some really strange artifacts on a couple of the scenes (only a couple out of the 26 possible), strange being a rather odd grey color, as well as there being lots of them.
Is this normal for such a modest OC? The temps were fine, not going above 73 deg/c. Not sure if I should up the volts a bit more, but 1.25v should be enough for such a small OC...
Any ideas?


 

I would call that anything but modest, 1200Mhz on the core is a 30%+ overclock, don't be expecting much more, and that

is if you manage to get that fully stable on air at 1200Mhz.

$115 or less block, NOT at FrozenCPU. Sidewinder preferred, but jab-tech is fine I suppose, I forgot about them.
The problem with a $115 block though, is I'll have to knock down to the HK CPU block instead of the Raystorm. frown.gif I'll have to compensate cost differences somewhere, because I can't break over $300 with this.

Use facebook code.

Facebook code? For what? confused.gif

Raystorm is nothing special really. Get HK CPU and HK Block. The other thing is that you keep CPU block for longer so a better one is more future proof.

The Raystorm is dead sexy, comes with blue LED's (which is a huge plus), and its one of the best blocks on the market last time I looked into it. The Heatkiller Rev 3.0 is fine, but the Raystorm is better. Sadly its also more expensive.....


OR.....
I can get a Koolance PC370 (the new revision that's all black), with a Koolance 7970 block. Thoughts on that?

You should see the terribad aqua design. Remember they made that thread, worlds first 7970 block, and it didn't even actively cool the vrms lol. Anyways they slapped on a bridge channel just like heatkiller. Looks like arse.


 

Darn! After posting above, took a look at my Koolance blocks are actually passive and I got 4 of them. Don't think I will put the blocks on. I am sure by the time got time to complete it, the 8970 will near release.

 

Also got confirmation from AMD regarding ZeroCore Power State will not function if you have HDMI and DP poplutated because it carries audio signal from device. The only port that works is DVI. They are working on a possible fix at drivers level. Not sure when.

Huh, you're correct! The channel goes through the top (behind the metal plate, and dumps in the o-ringed part on the VRM's.

Can I say this? I've never been a fan of koolance, except for their awesome ddc heatsinks.

Regarding the zerocore... I've got two seperate systems using all three ports, hdmi/dvi/dp at the same time with no lock up issues. However, I use optical for audio!?

Okay so Raystorm block, and standard EK Acetal block for $105 at jab tech?

By the way, appreciate that jab tech idea. Except for rads (they don't have the RS240 or EX240 in stock)....I'm at only $300 including 8 fans for the whole thing. I did substitute 2x $45 radiators in there, since the EX's are $45 each, and the RS's are $37 each. So I was just estimating cost by using the MCR220's.

To enter ZeroCore Power State and entering sleep/hibernate are two different issues. Most I have seen users are having crash after the system entered sleep state not that the card in ZeroCore Power State.

 

Most users identify it by "crash after long idle". By that maybe they don't know the PC is actually in Sleep/Hibernate state or ZeroCore Power State.

 

We don't know for sure in which stage they are having crash; Monitor Off > ZeroCore > PC Sleep > Hibernate > Resume.
