I'll see if I can make up that 3fps gap once VRM has proper cooling and run it up over 4Ghz... haha $28 Opteron pulls some solid API Overhead numbers... Is the gpu helping though? Thx
post #42 of 229
@chris89 I recommend updating benchmarks, both I and schuck6566 are using newest API Overhead Test 2.0.
Update replaces Mantle (dead API) with Vulkan (which can be run on Windows 7).

EDIT : I posted incomplete API score (already updated), here's complete result : http://www.3dmark.com/aot/209200

Here's the xeon api run with the gtx950 http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/19434748? and the screenshots. Gonna shut down for a bit,storms moving through Oklahoma. thumb.gif

P.S. actual clock speed cpu is 3.83 even though test shows base clock.

Right on.. what's the Firestrike score for the 780 TI? It should be way faster than the RX 480 ... I'm only up to 68fps Test 1...

I hope we do realize it's a comparison of 4Ghz+ Xeons vs a 3.6Ghz Opteron...

I'll try Win10 see if it helps... the whole system lasts 24 hours and the os becomes corrupt so I have minimal testing time before complete os corruption... Need to do a complete-re-fresh of various things to resolve.

No, it's not : LINK

Check my GPU Score, I even overclocked my GTX 780 Ti.
Here's i5 3570k @ 4GHz result on stock GTX 780 Ti for comparison : LINK

Your CPU is lowering your Physics and Combined scores to a point of overall score being lower than mine (despite your GPU Score of 14 449 vs. my 12 671).
Still, with Extreme or Ultra preset Fire Strike tests, you probably would get higher overall score than me (even if I'm using OC'ed Xeon/QX9770).

PS. Frequency scaling, based on your score of 5318 on Physics @ 3,6GHz :
Even with 4,788GHz clock (ie. +33% over what you tested with) on that Opteron, you would have scored ~7072,94 on Physics (assuming perfect scaling).
That would still be lower than my Physics score by over 200pkt (I scored 7364).

Here's Phenom II 965 @ 4GHz FS score with almost same clocks on GTX 780 Ti as mine : LINK

Here I applied a thermal solution to the VRM... I unplugged the cpu fan under load and let it heat up then plugged back in to cool down. Did this a couple of times to get to cure faster...

If I check the cache load box the temperatures drop nearly 10C on VRM & Core... Interesting?

These VRM temperatures seem really low I'm guessing? I just need to let it cure then I can go up to 4Ghz or more and just see if it makes a difference.

If not will need a board board... You guys are running the best overclocking boards ever made for LGA 775... ASUS Rampage Extreme... I owned a Rampage II Gene X58 and it could overclock the i7 930 nearly 5Ghz on mATX...

I may need to go AMD 970/ 990FX to clock this thing haha... I think the Opteron throttles early as it's enterprise computing for cost effective power savings etc... Gotta cool it way down to see any gains.

I think the VRM went down 50C from doing this so we will see... thumb.gif

Plus I'll try Windows 10... See if scores are better on the latest Suites.

You expected anything less from overclock.net forum ? biggrin.gif
Only I used Rampage Extreme, at least so far... Others put scores with P35 based Gigabyte GA-P35-DQ6 and EP35-DS3R

I also make it a bit easier for you :
3,6GHz clock with lowered FSB speed to 450MHz to get closer to your RAM frequency.
Exact settings : http://valid.x86.fr/bjnzyp

Fire Strike score : LINK.
I also DID NOT overclocked my GPU this time (it's at stock settings).
+Good job with VRM cooling thumb.gif

Thanks man and cool yeah I hear ya I was thinking the exact same thing... Overclock.net obviously Overclocking central haha

I added more vrm cooling... went straight for 4Ghz but it was honky getting into the os... I think it's the timings again... even dialed back memory and HT-NB links to about 2200mhz ie stock values.

It's also nice and quiet at load with cool VRM. Rather than reving up over and over and over again all the time... That gets annoying haha... It seems to not ramp up at all now.

Ram was at 1104Mhz... I turned up all the voltages and set 1600mhz memory timings 11-11-11 and had issues. Could get into the OS but OS is corrupt... Reason is many things...

Anyway at least vrm is way cooler... I'm looking at 25C stock VRM idle and like 32C load on stock clocks... compared to 67+ more I'm sure... Maybe I'll notice increases in performance.. i don't know... Need to download the latest 3dmark... Which Version are you guys using can you link me so we all have the right versions?

Thanks

Letting it cure longer and its looking pretty good.. idle/ load : These were actually more at high load surprisingly enough.. the 34C isn't as low as it could go... if left doing nothing it would probably go down mid 20C.. haha

Plus CPU is at 1.325v on stock clocks here which stock voltage is 1.225v... so these are 8.16% higher than they should be.

Cooler VRM should work a lot better than hot one (depending on MOSFET's used), maybe it's the reason for higher Voltage ?
But, there is also the simple sensor reading error possibility...

Easiest way to check Vcore would be to put multimeter and measure what goes out of coils.
Another option is to check temps at load.

1,2V vs. 1,3V is a big difference.
It will be easily noticeable on CPU load temps.
If temps now on 1,3V voltage are around old CPU temps with 1,2V voltage, I would assume it's a simple sensor read error.
