Was your 280X overclocked in that FireStrike run?

That's very hard to do and for most chips won't be happening unless they have very good water cooling.

Yes 1150/1750 froms tock 1020/1500

Do you have a link to one of your runs?

This 1100T continues to impress me when compared to Bulldozer/Piledriver. So does the HIS 280X (7970) for that matter.

Update and run again, I beat you in 90% of the scores in the comparison

You killed my physics score. But keep in mind my CPU is what, 5 years old now? And my GPU core was a good bit higher than yours as well though you have me on the RAM. I should sit down and do it again with the newest AMD drivers. I'm willing to bet I can squeak out a few more points. Especially if I don't go for stability, and focus on just running benches. The clocks I ran were obviously FireStrike stable but the CPU was P95 stable as well.

You do have custom water block vs my h80i and a hafx vs my $22 http://pcpartpicker.com/part/thermaltake-case-vl80001w2z

Totally agree bud. And as I said your CPU @5ghz beat my older CPU @4ghz. I had to run water to push my CPU to 4ghz @1.5v from 3.3ghz. And my (air cooled) 280X had a higher core clock than yours. Since we're talking about FireStrike, which is a GPU based benchmark. My higher GPU core is what helped my score, more so than my CPU. I just get a personal kick out of seeing my 5yo CPU keeping up (somewhat) with today's newest stuff at much lower clocks. It helps me justify not upgrading to the FX line and waiting for Zen. In this case you beat my physics score by 13.8%. That's a CPU dependent score, and you had to clock yours 1ghz higher than mine with 2 extra cores. I'm not tryin to trash on ya or anything, that's a great score! And while I'm sure I've spent more $$ on mine than you have. I've been working/upgrading my system for nearly 5 years now. It's easier to spend money slowly over the course of a few years. thumb.gif

Edit:
And I started overclocking with the AMD 3000+XP and Nvidia 5700 Ultra.

I almost wish I kept my q6600. These new i7/i5/fx8 aren't relly required. I had as much fun with my q6600 + 5870 as I do with 3770k + 290

does my 4 year old 4.8ghz 2500k still stomp that chip at 5ghz?
