You're on a roll today!
Keep it up.
I've got floating points coming out my ass! I'm only 5K off SB-e's starting FP points!
Just a little bit more. I keep suffering NB overheats, so I'm really having to balance the voltages.
Might have to try just a little bit faster...
Damn. Getting seriously close now.
Nope. I've given it all I've got, the parts canneh take no more.
its bloody annoying, too. Because I hit FP scores of 60K on one test, when my previous best was only 58K. (I'm running Geekbench through Command line. Less annoying prompts.)
Bitch is; I'd see those points, then my system would Blue screen/Geekbench would crash/I'd get a NB overtemp and instantly restart.
This chip has the ability to clock to well over 5.3Ghz, but I don't have balls made of stern enough brass to put enough voltage through to make it stable, so it looks like that'll be my score for now. I may revisit it later and see if I can't eke another 300 points out of it to hit my goal.
Now to let my PC idle on a low-fanspeed, so I can re-heat the coolant. I fear my loop might freeze overnight if I don't. - If all else fails: Run prime95! Heat the processor up to 58 degrees!
hmm dont know why its not showing :S
i7 970 @ 4.4Ghz - 12gb corsair vengeance - gtx 460 sli
I cant get my 950 stable with a multi of 22. It was fine at 21x210=4.4Ghz. Turning the bclk down and the multi up and its impossible. Then again I'm no master overclocker and there are probably a million and 1 settings I haven't touched that could aid my situation.
On a side note, Tundra that is some serious Floating Point score!
I wish I had a better memory controller. Bulldozer would sit smugly between the 2700K and the lower SB-E parts if it were the case.
Yeah, for reference; in the crappy runs that failed to complete; i'd be hitting 80K in the Multi-Threaded Scalar Blur Image test. It'd just Nuke straight afterwards, which always pissed me off "Woot! High sco-BALLS! WHY YOU CRASH?!"
One can always hope for Vishera that they will see the flaw and fix it up.
It's an Overtemp or stability issue on my part. I'm not quite good enough at balancing the voltages finitely enough to keep it stable at the silly speeds i'm running at. Even with near-zero water running past the NB: it can still overheat (wtf?), so I can't just go crazy on the voltage, sadly.
Nice job .//TuNdRa
my score updated... i guess 4 gigs to 8 gigs of ram dont make that much of a differences at the same clock speed
Cheers Pook. I may have to try again tonight, but I'll let my loop cool down to as low as it'll get without freezing first. Oh! I'm on Water now, not air. Need to change that.
Ditto for that last bit Pook
New member here, just joined after that damn Pookeyhead mate of mine got me interested in this benchmarking thing. I know its going to cost me money... Thanks Dave! LOL
Well, I managed to go home today, as I have a early start tomorrow.
Well, I've been home 5mins, and had to get my new 3960X into my rig.
A fine 'Golden sample' of a chip. 5Ghz @ 1.392V Stable.
Sorry for the 'super size' screen shot peeps.
Oh balls. And now True_Gamer turns up and flattens my futile attempts to hit 13K by acheving something crazy like 24K on the 32Bit.
Sorry Pookeyhead, but I claim the top spot again.
Temps were getting high in the 70s @ 5.3Ghz, but it doesn't help that I have only just applied the TIM, and my room temp is around 27C. Still more in the chip, So will push harder, when we have a cold frosty night.
I've noticed that 32bit Geekbench, doesn't scale that well when you get over 5Ghz. I may have to try the 64Bit test.
GeekBench 64Bit. CPU @ 5.2Ghz - 5.3Ghz was hitting temps in the 80's, so I will have to wait for colder weather, to perform another run at higher clocks.
wow 29.5k! Now my computer is working again I need to redo this, terrified to OC as I've no idea how to broke the last MB really.
