Well guys, looks like I am about done with this card. The K|NGP|N will be here Thursday so I wanted to see where this would max out with cold water and the max 1.212v. Honestly, this seems like a great card. Just to push the scores a bit for this old platform it was feeling like I was going to murder the old QX9650: 4.41ghz took 1.45v with LLC on but wouldn't pass Firestrike combined test. Ended up at 4368. Broke 11,000 in Firestrike and 13,000 in 3DMark11. Wonder where this falls for Yorkfield scores..[looks like the top scores searching results..lol] ;)This old box with the Ti, let alone the K|NGP|N is a bit comical, but it is still rocking for a 6 year old rig, and it's had a hard life!
This reference EVGA card ended up at 1411 core and 7980 memory
with no artifacts in 3DMark, 3DMark11, and Valley at 1.212v. Coolant temps were about 1-3C and loaded temp was 10-14C. The card will do about 1360 clean up to about 30-35C loaded. This is with the Skyn3t bios and K-boost enabled.
Thanks again for all the info. I'll be tooling on the new card this weekend and will do some cold weather testing. Could this be the oldest platform rocking the K|NGP|N?
If only I could throw more volts at it. It will be long gone before we have a software solution, unfortunately.
It has been a blast getting back into this. Thanks for all the hard work. What a cool
place OCN is. Edited by VETDRMS - 3/11/14 at 10:38pm
