Killer overclock at 950/2200. What is your voltage for that ? Is that on stock bios or a modded bios ? Seems to me very few people can get their 460's to 950 with stock bios voltage cap. Not a big deal but if you are running a modded bios you might want to state that in OP also. Just that way someone not so much in the know doesn't run out and pick up a 460, set 950/2200 @ 1087/1100 mV and wonder why they keep dropping the drivers. Of course if you are by chance pulling that on stock bios that's one sweet little card you have.
I use a modded bios, but I can get too 950 at 1.087 which is max stock, but that requires my memory to be down, which I don't want. Also, I did mention it is a FTW, lol. I get like 1900M with 1.087. I get from 950/965/1GHz depending on if I have my room air on, I am going to reapply the thermal paste today to see if I get 1GHz easier.

You mean the benchmarks for them? Cause the stock on the reference card is 673c.

I get 850/2125m at 1.012v Depends on the card I guess.

@OP: Download some benchmark tools for some other games, or demos which include them and run those too. You won't see such huge increases (between one and another) across them all.
I used a benchmark tool for BFBC2. I will try to do some later. Know any taxing demos? Hopefully after I'm done with this homework, I can go pick up some arctic silver 5, as I seem to have lost mine to bench more.

I have some ****ty stuff that I had laying around, I seem to have lost my Arctic Silver 5 somewhere in my mess of a room. Right now I am just browsing anyways, so this ****ty stuff is doing fine(30c idle). Also, no, I got some AS5 on my CPU, just was going to reapply my graphics card to maybe get a gain, but I lost it

It will do that easy

Is your benchmark tool FRAPS?

If not, what is it?

Yep, that's the clocks I get on Bad Company 2 @ 1920x1080, 32xQ, High quality but no HBAO. I get more FPS on Bad Company 2 than Black Ops oddly enough..

WHOA! 32xQ?!?!?!? THAT'S NOT EVEN POSSIBLE UNLESS YOU ARE DOWNING OTHER SETTINGS! I don't even think the 460 can do 32xQ, not quite sure, but I don't think.

Aliens vs Predator benchmark tool, Crysis/Warhead demo, then you can download the benchmark tool and use them (probably). There is also a Lost Planet 2 benchmark tool and the Mafia II demo also has a benchmark tool. Those are the ones I am aware of, I don't know of any others.

I'd get AVP but I'm poor, so I'll just use the tool. I got a crysis copy, not warhead though. I'll check out the other two. COP also has a benchmarking tool.

Also took off my cover, and mounted fans directly on the to heat sink, as I am on a work bench, and don't need the EE fan blowing. SPEND THE EXTRA MONEY AND GET A 2500k THOUGH! YOU'LL THANK ME LATER!
kk thx
i oreginaly wanted to buy a x4 955
but i get get a 2400 i5 for a bit more

the 2500k where i buy says it dont come with a cooler???
so it more $$ for cpu and more $$ for cooler so its not good for my buget

the 2400 is in a nice spot if i can buy a cooler later on i can get it to 3.5 later on

or sre the dif in STOCK preformance alot?

i dont realy care about ocing i want my hardwere to last longer cuz i wont upgrade enytime soon

and yes sorry for my lang

The 2500k should come with a cooler, and if not you can get a fine one if you don't plan on overclocking for fairly cheap. Trust me, the 2500k is much better for only like 40 more bucks, and you won't have to upgrade as quickly. The 2500k is a much better option, and if you really want, for 20 more there is the 2500.

Why would I have to have a screen shot in game? I listed the settings right there. Also, I don't know how to use it very good cause I don't need it.
