hmm can't really say atm, my system will only tollerate that speed for a bit without getting too hot. can't wait till i get my watercooling setup done...got some parts for it from a friend, but tubes leak and waterblock is for a pentium D so no use, and the radiators dont look safe lol...so not gonna use those, probably gonna get a swiftech Apogeeâ„¢ GTZ for cpu. already got a swiftech mcp655 pump. and the rest i will replace for something i haven't decided yet. going red uv tubing with red liquid and red fans (go AMD!) lol...just need the funds atm.

You should go and check out the water cooling section on the forum. They warn against colored fluids as they can gum up I guess. I use strictly Distilled water. Although I should probably use some type of additive... Distilled will displce the heat the best though! I had standard coolant before that cme with my system and it just seem to not cool as well and not keep things clean... JMO though!

Later!

@ theghostoftime1978 way off topic but, How do those cards fold? I am looking at one currently for some ppd boost but cant remember how they do and if it would be worth it. Any idea?

edit as mastiff said I would stay away from coloring the fluid and only run disteled with some PT nuke for best results.

@ Mastiffman

I never read the readme file! I didn't know they suggested no more than 20 runs, I alway did 25, don't know why, just always used that number for a full test.

I think I'll drop it to 20 from now on, I can't remember a run failing between the 20 and 25 pass, so it probably won't matter.

I like the quick results of IBT, which is why I always use it. Even at my advanced age I'm too impatient with Blend.

I couldn't for the life of me to get a 10 pass run to complete at the same Settings as the one that I posted yerteday for IBT..... SAME EXACT SETTINGS....

I was getting VERY Frustrated!!!! I then Decided to Run Prime95 in BLEND for a bit. I ran it for 2 hours FINE. it passed no errors. I stopped and fired up IBT and guess what!??? .........................

I Completed a 20 Pass Run Completely! With Almost 53.5GFlops the Entire time.... So What is UP with that???? Anyone have ANY idea at all?

Is it just me that is experiencing Stability then instability all in the same settings?

hmmm for the price i paid for this gpu 3 years go, $650AU you can now get a radeon 5870 and still have some change left lol... or even a geforce 285 or 295

but it still overclocks like hell on standard fan and heatsink. Plays most games like farcry 2 and crysis on medium to high settings @ 1680x1050 im waiting a couple of months for the geforce gf100 chips ship, amd will drop the prices a far bit to complete price/performance. where nvidia never competes in this area.

That is odd. I don't recall running into that, but I also don't think I've run the test on the same settings more than once (at least not without changes in between). Are you running high or maximum? I've only ever used the high setting, maximum uses all available ram at the time it starts, I think, and I wonder if the system was asking for more RAM during the run, causing it to fail? Doesn't seem logical though, considering it passed after a Blend run.

well I am back from the cruise.

Mastiff,
Were you able to push the 955 beyond 4.2ghz? any higher validations?

Spec,

I am going to start calling you "MB" for Money bags. What about you? any higher validations on air with the newer 955? That start up time is nuts!

nah I haven't messed with air much here lately. I've got this one on a megahalem right now but I'm not really pushing any cpu speeds. I am doing some 3d tweaking and finding the cleanest settings. I've locked on some really sweet 03 tweaks and I'm going to be aiming for the amd 03 record. That would occur at about 190k and thats if everything goes to plan.
