New year, new challenges.

New year, new records to break and new challanges. Wasindop starts of the new year by throwing his old and really bad batch i5 760 in the trash bin and orders a new i7 3820 with a ASUS X79 Pro motherboard. Will be fun to see what he can do with and we both hopes that it's decent batch. His old system will be put under water just to see what it really takes to get it higher. Other then that it's nothing new, 3 GTX480's at hand, waterblock for one and a Accelero for one, should be able to get some nice air and water results from them. //AlbertMwugabi

Overclocking weekend!

Yes, this weekend, I (AlbertMwugabi) and Wasindop used the helping hand of mother nature and the cold air to see how far we could push our systems.

Wasindops setup:
i5 760
Maximus III Formula
Corsair 2000MHz RAM (2 modules)
Zalman CNPS9900 max

First up is Wasindop's terrible i5 760 that clocks really bad and needs lots of voltage to be stable. He got it up to 4.2GHz and stable enough for some superPI and wPrime. He then clocked his memory rated at 2000MHz and 9-9-9-24 i think. He got them to run 2133MHz @ 8-9-8-24 1T.

My setup:
i7 2600k
Maximus IV Extreme
Corsair 2000MHz RAM (2 modules)
Noctua NH-U12P

Next is my setup, highest i could push my CPU was 5.1GHz. I had the same memory as Wasindop and i managed to get my up to the very same speeds as his, 2133MHz @ 8-9-8-24 1T.

Since we both used the same GPU and could get them both to about 900MHz core we didn't care about the GPU so much.

It might not have been super clocks and no HWBot submissions were made but me both learned a lot about our systems and the limits so were looking forward to more clocking this christmas!


PS. I might update this later on since i didn't have as much material as i first thought.

Unigine Heaven DX11

A little team member fight between me and wasindop in Unigine Heaven DX11 benchmark. Both with a GTX480, he with an Accelero Plus II cooler and me with the stock cooler but i use my i7 2600k @ 4.6GHz and wasindop hes i5 760 @ 3.7GHz. It was close but at the moment i go the best result by .8 points so it will continue i guess.
Wasindop's 1467.06 DX11 Marks
Albert's 1467.88 DX11 Marks //Albert

Unigine Heaven DX9

An single (1) watercooled GTX480 running @ 920/1175 and a i7 2600k @ 4.7GHz resulted in a total score of 3390.139 which gave us a 13th place in the GTX480 rankings. Not to bad but still not as good as aimed.

But we'll do a couple of more tries later on with some of the other GTX480's.

Finally got the long awaited AX1200, so i can run 3 GTX480's in my rig now, don't need the last one as desktop decoration. ;) Quick 3D Mark Vantage Performance test, slow and old installation of windows. Unfortunetley i ran a BETA forceware, so it's not valid, but here's the compare link 3DMark Vantage P41036 Will try to do a better OC session this weekend with WHQL driver, but i really hate removing all hardware from the case and put it in the bench. But i've got help from mother nature with -5C air outside the window/poorman sub zero cooling! ;)

Short older test with 2xGTX480.

CPU @ 4.5GHz
GPU @ 801/2002

Not a very serious oc, just stock cooling on the 480's and Noctua U12 on CPU. The goal right now is to try to break Vantage P40k with two cards and hoppefully, p50k with 3 cards.

Compare link: 3DMark Vantage P34620


Long time no see, ey? ;)

Long time since last time, the whole overclocking things have been on ice forr a while. But now were hoppefully back. And this time with some new setups.

Rig 1:
i7 2600k
3 x GTX480
Maximus IV Extreme

Rig 2:
i5 760
2 x GTX480
Maximus III Formula

Hoppfully we will get some nice results both CPU and CPU+GPU.
