New 3870 3DMark06 Score, broke 14k on a single card!!

post #1 of 41
Thread Starter 
Finally took the time today to sit down and overclock my quad a bit more to 3.8Ghz and re-3dmark it.

And the benchmarking/overclocking paid off! I was able to hit 14,342 marks!

I ran my 3870 at 999/1360, pretty close to this GPU-Z Validation at 999/1350:

I have to say, this is my favorite video card ever. This thing is a beast. It overclocks like crazy and does great with the added voltage of a volt mod. The bios editor is a great addition since I can overclock and underclock my video card and not have to mess with Overdrive or Rivatuner when I want to overclock and just leave it. (Overdrive doesn't go high enough )

Under water temps doing break 40°C and with some more volts, I think I could take it higher. My CPU could probably go a bit higher but I'm nearing 1.6V, lol. So, we'll see.

wha? I easily hit 13.6 with my 8800 GT and my E4500 @3.6 (when I still had that cpu), so you should be getting higher than that.

Nice, is that overclock on the 3870 stress testing (atitool artifact scanner for 1hr) stable, or just for benching? Either way it's impressive.

@dr4gon, those are some really nice SM scores!
Looks like your CPU is maxed just about, so now it's time to volt mod your card(s)

It's not quite ati tool stable (fuzzy cube), one notch lower it is which I think is like 985 (goes in incraments). The next step up after 999 is like 1012 or so and that just crashes instantly.

I'm getting about 1.54V on the gpu core, so if I bump it another .3-.4V and get it a little under 1.6V I could probably break 1,000

Some people have been able to hard mod and solder stuff and they've gotten to like 1020+ and have some nice clocks.
