Want to OC just my CPU - Page 2

post #11 of 127
Thread Starter 
One other thing, is there a huge performance difference between a 512 cache and a 1mb cache on the dual core chips? I upgraded from a 4800 that I had because a friend said the 6000+ was MUCH faster due to the cache size and mhz boost from 2.5 to 3.0.

I would also like to join the 6000+ club if I may.

I had the same motherboard you have in your signature before I sold the whole system.

Awesome board for the price, but make sure you get the latest BIOS update. I was having trouble getting some of the memory timings to boot properly; I'd have 4-4-4-12-24 in the BIOS but CPU-Z would should 4-4-4-18-26.

I got mine up to about 230 stable with no increase in voltage, but that was with a Black Edition so I lowered the multiplier.

On yours you can't change the multiplier up or down, so your processor's limit will be reached before your motherboard's.

Don't worry about your RAM. The Athlon X2 ties the memory to the CPU multiplier, so yours will be 15/8 which is less than a 2:1 ratio. At 214 your ram will be 214 x 15/8 = 401.25 (802.5 DDR).

Depending on your CPU cooler, you might even be able to go a little higher.

I'm curious about your SLI setup. I borrowed a friend's 8800GTS 512 (we both later stepped up to 9800GTX) to try on my board and the scaling was horrible (hard to say if it helped or hurt performance). Have you tried testing some games benchmarks with one and two cards? I told the guy who bought the computer that he might want to get a new board for SLI, because I didn't want him to buy another card for no reason.

I wouldn't say the cache will provide a HUGE difference, probably nothing you'd notice doing everyday things. That combined with Mhz increase should make a big enough difference that you will see a change.

To join, all you have to do is make a post with the specs I listed in the original post. Welcome to OCN

Scaling? Not sure what you mean. I haven't done any benchmarks with just one card versus two, though I certainly can pretty easily just by turning off SLI. I can say though that I definitely notice a difference with SLI turned off. Crysis is MUCH better anyway.

When I get home tonight I will do a 3dmark 06 bencmark and post the results.

By scaling he means how do 2 cards perform vs 1 card. A scaling of 2x would be ideal although hardly, if ever, reached. In other words, idealy 2 cards would have 2x the performance of 1 card.

My original response redacted. I will post some opposing benchmarks tonight

It would be task specific. You would get different scalings depend on what you are benchmarking. But lets say you use 3dmark06 and get a score of 8000 with 1 card and you get a score of 12000 with 2 cards. You would have a scaling of 12000/8000=1.5 in 3dmark06.

If you wanted an overall scaling, just do it with multiple benchmarking tools and take the average of your scaling factors.

To answer the scalability question, I scored 9086 with one card, 9606 with both (3dmark 06). Not sure what this translates to, I will do some more benchmarking.

Also, I have not yet received my 6000+, im still using my 4800, so keep that in mind if the score seems low. I am getting the new cpu tomorrow, so I just stuck it in my sig.
