One word, gobsmackingly gorgeous
LOL nice words bro thanks a lot!!
Of course, I'm terribly biased, but ABSOLUTEMENTE, mod of the year Alex.
Thank you so much for all your hard work and perserverence. Like I've said before I only hope my book is as good as your work.
Bravo and Freedom bro.
Bravo Alex, bravo. The curved designs integrate so well. You have really outdone yourself with this build. This is without a doubt your best work so far.
Thanks for your kind words my friend so much appreciated!!! Freedom and Peace to our world bro!!!
Thanks my friend it means a lot coming from you
Love how this all came together. Shame about your troubles. I suspect you can take it apart and put back together with a blindfold by now Really looking forward to those trophy picts.
Your final pics don't appear its just empty space
Thanks man but what trophy pictures? LoL I got confused!
I see them and so do everyone else maybe its a temporary photobucket problem
Finished benchies today soon I will start uploading results!!! Stay tuned for the bench saga!!
So is this up on MDPC yet because it flipping well should be .
Thanks man well I dont think I can qualify there eitherway modding for me is a joy and I really enjoy what I do! Hopefully it will be in magazines, I will let you know!
Ok guys here we go with the bench saga!
Here you will see all the components overclocked and not and how they perform!
At first I am going to begin with the Corsair F240 SSD's!
First of all the CrystalDiskMark:
And after overclocking the processor and also adding more programs etc:
Here is the ATTO benchmark:
The performance of these SSD's is absolutely out of this world!!! Imagine 4 of these in RAID0!
It will be nice if you could also post some benchmarks with your setup so we can make a little
comparison test! Thanks in advance guys!!
Also thanks to Corsair for sponsoring the SSD's.
Sweet result on the ssd's AnG3L .
Raided ssd's just fly eh , mine weren't far off from what you got but only at 2x 60gb ocz summit's making 120gb in raid0 but wow 480gb of that speedy goodness, very awesome, no need for budgeting space there .
I've had a taste of raid0 ssd power, but split them some months later & I gave my mum 1 of them, over time they were just losing write speed, read speed stayed very well though, but even so because of the fantastic seek time speeds everything felt very snappy & still does with just 1.
Pretty sure I'll always stick with ssd's for the main os drive & have a nice big WD raptor for a games drive, it was difficult to feel a difference in games but the os & apps had an extremely noticable good difference with ssd's, love the fact that once your desktop has come up everything is ready to go & never feels sluggish.
I did flash the summit's recently to add the trim support but they are still gradually slowing down on the write speeds, it did give them a second life though & they were like new after the flash, just wish ocz would release a tool to restore factory freshness to keep them awesome because trim doesn't do anything for me.
I ve read somewhere that OCZ is preparing an SSD Toolbox I am not sure when this will be up.
There are many ways to restore your power but most of the solution require formatting the drive. Hopefully you will find the solution as the ssd is one of the most noticeable upgrades I made since 2008!
That's awesome speeds from the SSD mate, I can't wait to get my vertex 2 up and running.
Thanks J !! Cant wait to see some benchies from you too!!!
I see the "Trophy" ( like the prize you'd put in a grand display case for all to see) picts now! Beautiful finish to a wonderful journey here with you. Epic as always my friend
Thanks bro glad you enjoyed this little journey!! Much appreciated! More benchies to follow in a few minutes!
Now lets continue the bench saga with the Western Digital 500 GB Sata6 hard drives in Raid0.
To be honest I expected way more from this setup but I believe the Marvell drivers need to be
"fixed" and improved further in order to make Raid0 arrays work as they have to.
Here are some benchies:
Now the overall overclocking experience.
I was first able to get a 4.2 Ghz out of the i7 930 but then I compromised with a stable
4 Ghz with the memory running at 1600 Mhz 7-8-7 timing as it was impossible to clock them higher and make them stable. Also after a LOT of reading I found out that is better to have them clocked lower with tighter timings.
At 1.325 Vcore full load the 360 EK radiator was able to handle the temperatures really well keeping the CPU below 66 Degrees Celsius. (27 Celsius ambient)
Also remember that in the loop is the mosfets and the NB-SB which they get really hot after an overclocking session so I believe the results are really good.
Here are some benchies with the Corsair Dominator GT (CMT6GX3M3A2000C8)
Memory copy @ 1600 7-8-7
Memory latency @ 1600 7-8-7
Memory write @ 1600 7-8-7
Memory read @ 1600 7-8-7
And a Super-PI session!
More to follow in a while!
