[CLOSED] 3D Fanboy Overclocking Competition 2014 - $500 in prizing! - Page 27

This competition is cool and all but I guess I expected to see more every day gaming rigs turn out as opposed to 2-4 $500+ GPU ultra bench stuff. Cool too see but nowhere near indicative of the majority share of GPU power out there in reality lol.

Here are my scores with my aging, dusty, gaming turd. 2600k@4.7ghz, 2x 7950's @1285/1800. Nothing spectacular but it plays the games i like.

Lol.. So it looks like my 7950's overclocked to the most i can get out of them is a little bit better than ONE 780 ti..

This is suppose to be fun for everyone regardless of hardware specs and what not. No need to call you system a turd lol. There will always be better scores and better hardware.

Have fun and bench on thumb.gif

That's a pretty cool pot you have there.. What kinda temps do you get outa that? Looks like it also partially cools the GPU? What are the temps like and what kind of overclocks can you get out of it? Where do you get the dry ice for it and what do you do if you just want to USE the system? I'm assuming you can't just keep filling it with dry ice all the time?

lol a lot of questions there bud. When the tek 9 gpu pot isn't attached it looks like this.


My old 2600k runs at 4.8 24/7 and gtx 780 ti at 1359/1850. For benches I use dry ice for cpu and run at 5.4ghz and use ln2 on the gpu for 1700mhz+.
I have a dragon f1 cpu pot from years ago and a second hand tek 9 gpu pot just picked up recently and just started running gpu on subzero for benching. Dry ice is so cheap and lots of fun and with ln2 if you cant find a decent source(I pay $40 for 30 liters) you cant go wrong. Way more fun than any video games for me just my opinion.

Definately cool.. Yea, i recently got into the cooling mods and benching with my current gaming system. I'm using water though.. I'm assuming the dry ice setups cost quite a bit more and probably a bit more maintenance. Awesome setup though. Question. What kinda voltage do you need to hit 4.8 on the 2600k? It takes 1.42 volts on my 2600k to hit 4.7ghz and i don't feel comfortable running it 24/7 like that. I keep it at 4.5@1.37.

I had my 2600k at 4.5ghz around 1.35 or so for years. When bf4 released and I stopped caring about my cpu as much I run like 1.47 for 4.8 24/7 under water. My cpu has lasted me years so if it starts to degrade its not a problem but sandy bridge cpus are pretty bullet proof. I just started getting into benching again. Last time I benched was when I first got my 2600k and had 2 6970 in crossfire but just air cooling and used dry ice on cpu then. The rush from benching under cold is something else though. Gets the heart goin and just to see gpu or cpu at such speeds is just crazy. I love a good adrenaline rush rather from motorcycle or anything else and benching is that much fun. Just a lot harder due to so many variables. Have to worry about hardware, software, and dial it all in for good results. Im not trying to break the bank for some good scores that's why I still use a 2600k but I do try n find a good balance

I hope this isn't too off topic but I'd like to make an inquiry about my Catzilla scores;
Seeing other peoples Catzilla scores I can't help but feel like there is something wrong with my DL or it's just not detecting the second GPU. I only am getting 13800 something with x2 7970's and a i7-3820 OC'd to 5Ghz. I mean 'boredmug' has scores in the 26k area, I realize he has a beast OC on his cards, but still less than 100mhz over on the core and me possessing a higher-end card and seeing half of what he is getting is a little confusing to say the least. Anybody have any tips a tricks to get better scores they can offer to their fellow/opposing red team player?
