New 3Dmarks vantage score on dual MSI TFII 560Ti at stock clocks

Here's mine.

http://www.techpowerup.com/gpuz/zb5xy/

It's the EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti. It's the "FPB" version at "stock" 850/1700MHz and 4100MHz. It gets warm under load at stock settings (yet cool at idle) and 0.95V, so no overclocking/voltage raising.

Here it is when I got it, and next to my previous MSI GeForce 8800GT OC, which was one of the best video cards I ever owned, and finally in my PC (sorry for the blurry/sharpened quality of the last two images, I know, I'm not the best at taking pictures all of the time).

Here's a real kicker. I ORDERED the card for them cause my uncle wasn't sure what was good. He was going to get a 5670 or something crappy like that. So the card comes and they install it when I wasn't around.

Turns out they installed it with the piece of sheet metal blocking the exhaust vent. And since my uncle wouldn't even let me near the innards of the PC I only found the problem yesterday. He then proceeded to blame his son who did nothing but watch him install the card cause he doesn't know what he's doing, right?

Temps are still the problem though. I downclocked it for him and it seems to be running fine in game @ 763clocks, but just like clockwork if the card hits 85C in Furmark with the FTW (850clocks) it takes a dump.

Since they voided warranty already I'm going to see if I can suggest getting something with decent airflow. Like a HAF 912 or 922.

Otherwise I'm just going to turn my head the other way and let them deal with it. :sigh:
Amazing. Some people just cannot be helped. It sounds like you've got a control freak uncle and he knows he can hang you with your paycheck. The situation definitely sucks for your cousin, but I would suggest that you help as much as you can but I don't break your back over it.

I hate to say it, but your uncle is going to have to learn the hard way. Just wish him luck when he tries to go back to HP for the warranty. Afterwards, show him how well your own self built computer is holding up, and maybe then he will come around.

Exactly. HP is going to reject any warranty claims and he'll try to come to me and blame me for this.

I'll tell him to hang himself with the sleeved Noctua fan cables.

He knows how well my PC is holding up but he still thinks I spent too much money on it. What he doesn't know is that it will run circles around his HP with a 1055T and a generic motherboard with no MOSFET cooling and 9GB generic RAM in dual channel + 1 config.

For the grand he paid he could have gotten something plenty times faster/better.

Hell my original build was only around 1200$ and still would rape his GTX 460 and stock 1055T.

Would finding a way to mount say a H50 somewhere to blow the hot air out of the case help the GPU enough to lower temps by say 10C?

Wow, he actually spent a grand on an HP?! I didn't think he spent that much considering how cheap the boutique computers sell for nowadays. Yeah, I would be pissed too if it didn't work like I wanted it to, lol.

Anyways, seeing how small the case is, it might be a challenge to be able to mount an H50 without further modding to the case itself. I'm sure overall it will help with temps, especially if it's just a regular stock AMD cooler on that CPU. However, the issue with the whole computer shutting down when the GPU reaches a certain temp, while I think it may be the GPU itself, I think the more likely culprit would be the motherboard components overheating. Any kind of exhaust you can provide for that case should help.

Two words:

Slot Cooler. Put one (or two) under the 460?

turn off physx and run it again...
post #1920 of 5998
It can be played both ways...I'm sure half the advertized scores are with physx enabled....if the GPUs can bench better because of a added feature it possess, it has it...leave it be I guess...I seen several review sites benching with Physx enabled...without Physx my bench is at 31 127 pts...

But I mean in order to come up with a baseline, why not benching at original state, instead of starting to disable features...

What's your GTX580 Vantage score with Physx enabled?
