Annual Extreme Overclocking Event 2010 by Battlenet Pefkakia
Me and Crio got invited to bench live at an internet cafe called Battlenet a few days ago, unfortunately I got most of the stuff just one day before the event ( today ) so I didn't do everything I wanted to, only had time to create a few OS images, spray the GTX 480 with conformal spray, insulate the mobo & the VGA and pack my stuff and hit the road.
I wanted to mod and use lots of stuff ( Gigabyte 5870 SOC, the GTX480, dual 5970's, a second mobo, etc ) but I just couldn't.
As usual whenever I have an event it'll be on a rainy day, and today was one of the same
My Intel Core i7 980X E.S. ( B1 revision, Q4EG ) is a bad clocker, very low CBB & CB ( -116C CBB, -123C CB ), has some issues with high voltages ( won't work at any Vcore over 1.64V* [ worked just once at 1.7V ] ) and also struggles with high UnCore clocks.
Very weird chip.
With HT on I could run wPrime 32M at 5.7GHz at -120C @ 1.7V, and AquaMark 3 at 5.7GHz at -118C @ 1.7V until... a restart later it stopped working at any voltage over 1.64V
With that limit, I can't say it doesn't clock well, but generally it sucks.
AquaMark 3 at 5.65GHz at -118C @ 1.63V
3D Mark03 at 5.52GHz at -121C @ 1.64V
I only saved 2 or 3 screenshots and 3D Mark project files ( think I missed the best one at 125k gotta check the OS disk later ), but Jason a good friend of mine was there to do what he does best, take some pictures with his camera
Let's see what we have for now:
HWbot score ( best I found at the secondary HDD )
Earlier ( yet slower : ) score screenie:
( left to right ) BenchZowner, Crio pre-testing
Zafiropo ( 2nd person from the right ) and Stelios a.k.a. Stelaras ( 1st person from the right ) getting a photo for the lucky draw ( Zafiropo won a HD5830 )
Crio working on the MSI 890FX GD70 or something : , no comment :
Sofos1990 playing with my setup
My students :
Une attraction ?
Too bad Jason erased a great paparazzi-like AWESOME photo he took of another chick ( damn you man! )
so I suppose you found vmod for the gtx480?
I really like 1100 on clore on the GTX480
and +1 to respect for the living legend, old TEK3 Fat

I don't write posts because I have nothing to say when you are extreme I am a noob without good hardware to extreme oc and only with dreams
