X1800xl Sux - Page 3

post #21 of 27
Thread Starter 
I might have to look into the Zalman cooler. Does anyone know if it will fit the X1800XL? I noticed that the cpu score was lower then the GFX score in AM3 so that tells me that the processor is bottlenecking the gfx card. So I took the vid card and put it into my other rig (the one with the 650) and ran the benchmark again and got a score ~81000. The P4 650 was OC'd to 4.4Ghz and the vid card was at stock speeds. I ran all the benchies again (3dmark05, 03, 01se) and noticed a decent increase in all the test scores. That leaves me to believe that it wasn't the card that sux, it was the processor. I think my X1800 XL has a new home.

and I DL'd the new ATI Tool and when I ran it to find max core it went backwards. I hit abort and opened the 3d view and hit scan for artifacts at the stock settings and it ran for about 2 secs before seeing artifacts all over the place. Do you think it is the card or the new ati tool. it is a beta.

Download ATITool 0.24 if you can use it on your card, and see what happens.

Most benches are single-threaded as of now. So youre better off with the single core until games and benches start taking advantage of dual core. The X1800XL is a powerful card and needs a lot of CPU power to feed it.

You OC 3.4 to 4.4, I have 3.0 you think its posible to OC to 4.0 with stock fan?

The Zalman should fit on there. And what kind of cooling do you have on the blast furnace? If its just stock then its probably overheating and throttling itself back.
Very nice!

it is just stock cooling. It could be throttling. I will have to DL throttlewatch and run a benchmark on it to see if it is throttling. I still think its more of an issue of the 3.68Ghz dual core just isnt fast enough for the card. With the 4.4ghz in AM3 the cpu score and the gfx score are closer together. I just think that it is a better fit for that computer then the dual core, at least until they start to write some games and benchmarks that take advantage of the dual cores.

I doubt it, not with stock cooling. Although, I think Comrad got a 1Ghz OC with stock cooling but I think that was on a northwood chip.
