Is this a good build?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I overclocked the quad on my 2k8 upgrade to 3.15 ghz and the sli 8800 gt to 680/1700/950 and i got 14700 for my score. I was wondering if that is a good score? I also have my memory @700 mhz in order to get the cpu overclock stable.

looks good, but with an after market heatsink, you can push that CPU to 3.4-3.7, which would open up those 8800gt's a bit more.

As for memory speed, it doesn't matter in real world performance really. You might notice a small difference going from 700 to 1066, but anything less in neglegable.

for that overclock its where it should be around the 15k mark.

Bump your shaders up to higher and see if its stable.

i tried to get 3.2, 3.4 and 3.5 on 1.5v but it wont stay stable. It just restarts after about 20 mins on prime 95. I heard that this board is a bad overclock. Do you have any advice on how to get it stable. Also the gpu overclock wont go any higher, no matter what i change i get artifacts
