I've had the Greatest afternoon of Overclocking!
Having GR8 game of BC2 last night and Eradicator [AKA] mark steams a message mid battle a quick look during respawn revealed he had got his water block and was trashing my scores. I paid no mind, was busy killing, but in the back of my mind...
P11337 Bolter01 - i7 2600K@5Ghz (w) - HD6990@1000/1500 (w)
P39301 Bolter01 - i7 2600K@5Ghz (w) - HD6990@1000/1500 (w)
Unigine Heaven 2.5 - 1866 Bolter01 i7 firstname.lastname@example.orgGhz(w) - HD6990@1000/1500(w)
Metro 2033 - 61.67 Bolter01 - i7 2600K@5Ghz (w) - HD6990@1000/1500 (w)
Sry bout the res of those shots, let me know if you cant read 'em
Your right Nuke, I had hit some funny walls before today with the CPU@5Ghz and faster GPU clocks fail well behind lesser or little improvement at all.
I was quite amazed at what 2x 480's can do, God help us if any crazy bastard gets 3!
or 2x 580's that my friend would be sick!
There is a guy @ AMD forums that has a 6990 with a 480 PhysX .....
I was thinking those TI550's look kinda lonely over @ PCCG
Thx mark for TriXX seems to be much more stable than ASUS Smart Doctor or MSI AB. I really like it, just needs a few extras like keyboard LCD support, graph/history/min/max of temps
I had some great results and found a few things out on the way, I actually went at it very incrementally. Yes I found 1Gz needs 1.2 and that's bugger all voltage any way for a nice OC - A GHZ
M8 my memory just wouldn't stop, I stopped @ 880/1500, so I went chasing highest core and I may be limited to 1Ghz Metro wont take 25mhz more even with 1.3v
I am gamer at heart and I just wanna play. So I might just leave it at that and get some mileage out of the card before I get bored and start to experiment.
