post #11 of 17
Congrats man but just to let you know a lot of the times you can not judge what ocan you will get from one card cause when you run sli or cf the clocks are a little slower, I'm running mine at 760 right now without any voltage increase but that's why I folks all day, games I can go 800 and be stable

hey guys, small update... With a single GTX 470 at 850/1700/837 and a Q6600 @ 3.6GHz I got:

3DMark06: 17483

Vantage: P15794

Gonna run 3DMark11 in a sec, and heaven as well.

Heaven: 47 FPS 1920x1200 0xAA 4AF (couldn't find a way to screenshot it)

Vantage: P4287

To screenshot Heaven, use the screenshot mode in Fraps or Afterburner (both have hotkey's for taking screenies and those usually work w/everything). Alternatively, save your Heaven result, then open it up ... should open with your browser as it's an HTML file, then take a screenie of the browser.

And don't even worry about the full scores in any of the 3DMarks ... all you really (should) worry about is GPU score. And 06 is useless period. And make sure to do a Vantage Extreme run since you have 1920x1200 res. That's where you really see the scaling from SLI since CPU won't impact that score at ALL.

Should score around 6K on GPU for 3dMark11 with that huge OC you're rocking there.
