I love you all for helping me OC

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I have learned so much in such a short time here

I am wirting up a detailed build sheet, with pictures of where I was and where I am now.

When I started.. I ran a 3Dmark06 of 7832.. which I thought was great, with a stock 2.13G clock and a single 7950GX2

Well, I OC'd to 2.6Ghz.. and added in two 7900GTX cards in SLI and achieved a 3dmark of 8782

Well, my CPU under heavy load and the stock cooler would idle at 54C and hit 72C under heavy loads.. this was hurting obviously.. got a Zalman 9700..

new results? Droped idle to 28C and Loads to 34C!!!!!!!

Able to OC to just under 2.8Ghz.. new 3dmark? 9970!!!!

this is on crap 553Mhz ram.. my good 800Mhz Dual Channel DDR2 is still in RMA!!!!

With a little tweaking, 10,000 is easy now!!!!!! And after the RAM gets back and I can really do linked OC.. I will have a true screamer hitting 3.0Ghz with ease!

Thanks to all who have given advice, and listened to me as I have tried to learn an awful lot in a short time!

thank you thank you thank you!.. now I feel the money spent has been more than worth it!


New Super PI.. from 22.39S to 21.84S

I try to help when I can But my knowledge is in different areas of IT.. server side, and Fabric switching, SAN and the like.. not much call for that here

But I have signed up for the folding@home .. currently running on 2 PC's.. prolly 6 by the weekend. I will do my part. Talked to my team at work, and asked them to install the software, and leave their machines on when they leave, thats another 12 PC's there.

UPDATE!!

www.thewinkfamily.com/pc/

Got her to 2.91Ghz now stable. And a new 3DMark06 record for me.

I added a detailed matirix of settings I have used and tried in my OC quest, as well as a list of 3DMarks and what settings I used to get the different Scores.

Hope it helps somebody one day
