GPU HD5450 Competition!!!

June 23th 0:01am - July 23th 23:59pm EST (-5GMT)


This competition is geared for GPU OC. We welcome new benchers and new GPU voltmodders.
OCN will be glad to assist you in your HD5450 V'moding.


We are going on the "pursuit of performance" and fun here.

Benchmarks:
3Dmark01
3Dmark03

Rules and limitations:
- Only use videocard HD 5450 DDR3 (512 or 1GB).
- A link to a HWbot HD5450 submission
- Attach a picture of your overclocking rig and/or modded graphic card to your HWbot submission
- A verification screenshot with notepad containing forum name and "HD5450 Comp" is required.
- No unreleased ES hardware or hardware that is not available on the retail market
- Single GPU only
- No manufacturer sponsored competitors!
-There are no cooling restrictions!
-Must submit all entries through the HWbot engine.
OCN GPU HWbot





Rankings: Top 5 will get posted and recognized in OP

Highest GPU core clock with a gold will get MVP award.

MVP award now has a prize!:
$75 + 2GB Kit PC 8500
Second place $50
Third place $25



Requirements for MVP:
Record HD5450 core clock that is a gold medal HWbot entry at the end of the competition.
3Dmark01 or 3Dmark03.
NO tie breakers!
You must have fastest core clock, unless you hold both golds with same core clock.
Second and Third will be the other gold medal with slower core clock or fastest Silver, then slower clocked Silver, if same person holds both golds.

Oh this looks like fun. I wonder if my wife would hate me for butchering the HTPC (again)

Awesome. I never voted for a gpu because I thought I wouldn't be able to enter due to work commitments. Looks like I have another month or so off.
This will be my first volt mod of any kind and even my first gpu BIOS flash. I just have a quick question or 2 to make sure I'm on the right track:
1) What size are the resistors? ( .25W, .5W, 1W....)
2) Any idea what the max 'safe' voltages will be?

IIRC its more about the resistance, not the wattage.

Max safe voltage I would put through this card would be around 1.7-1.8v for benching If i could care less about whether it died or not.

i would probably only go 1.6v if I wanted it to live for longer than a week.

yeah...200k and 100k resistors are used....just what size?

you arent pushing massive amounts of current though it, and 1W have worked great for me so far on about 3 volt mods so I would say they are a safe bet
