cant install 3D mark either, wont run..pff, another new windows install or what?
pity i cant adjust the voltage, 1.170V is max, at least i can run 1100/1500,
but the voltage mod FtW showed me, doesnt seem that hard,
except maybe taking that resistor of?
any others that did that already? im not very good with soldering tho..
If you aren't too handy with a soldering iron I wouldn't recommend a pricey new card for a guinea pig. I do it for bot scores, not as worthwhile taking the risk for gaming.
Doesn't hurt to find some cheap oldies on CL to practice on, kinda like delidding practice with old p4s. I have killed a month old $600 card before with a slip of the hand & it kinda hurts....
Now that the instructor/tester is out of the car time for death race to begin....

Whichever performs the best is the keeper - The rest I will put in the internet PC or whatever.
I managed to get my Tridents (2666Mhz) down to 10-13-12-25 (With optimized subtimings aswell - Mem tweakIt reports DRAM Efficiency to a 44600 score), but the speed is REALLY nothing special - At all ...
Perfect storm should be fun, pretty well binned stuff. The samsung is great for the price. It won't be easy to beat the tridents though, ivy does like that speed, even with the looser timings. Others can match & beat it but it takes some work where the trident makes it easy.

Not bad at all, corsair bins some of thier midrange ram tight enough that it doesn't really overclock at all.

Worked really well, cuts smoothly through metallic wire like it's butter.
Got a sexy 2cm scar now, lol
I do that too. For staples kinda have to go back to the doc, always taken out my own stitches though.
