on the regular ti classy i was always within 10 points of my top score no matter what i did, but on this kingpin it seems even the slightest change throws the score off by 50 points or so. Im trying to figure out why 125mhz on the mem would make a 300 point difference when the core is roughly 50mhz higher. Confusing stuff, but i have been awake for about 30 hours now lol, im probably not thinking correctly. Just took some shots of the watercooling rig and its new loop before i break it down to take the mobo tray out for sub zero benching lol, ill post em soon, theyre uploading now with my awful swamp internet, they should be done sometime next year.

The XOC bios the core goes the same as all the others but my memory maxes out at about +300 and thats with high voltage on the memory with a super ghetto heatsink on the mem vrms lol.
3888 / skyn3t bios lets me get to about 2010 - 2020 memory clocks, but not much higher without needing stupid high voltage for water/air on that part of the card.
on skyn3t bios my core is hitting about 1475 to 1480 depending on the specific voltages i give it. on the 3888 bios it was around 1351 core, or whatever that boosts to, i couldnt get anything to give me an accurate reading.
still a decent score i guess for water, its just frustrating to not be able to catch a previous personal best Edited by szeged - 2/27/14 at 7:21am
