Yeah I am sitting here trawling drivers for cards for XP. Dice this week with any luck
Asus 5870 v2 18.4 HW points
I need to get mine modded :/ Will play around next weekend... have had no luck yet and get the XP running this weekend...
It's a lot of time & effort.......learning that benchmark for the first time. Then dialing your machine in as best as you can to go fast.
So I've been looking at 3D2001se for a while now over many beers/ nights.Testing @ 4ghz my previous best was 85803. Last night I spent time on the
8800 Ultra's to see what they liked. I do suspect x1 Ultra here though is less capable than the other. So after a few hours testing score went 85803 > 86043
Enough right boosted 240 points on my efforts. Not really sure earlier this week why the machine had a few freezes.....suspected Vcore or temps.
Thought the e8600 was a sucky clocker based on that experience falling over on 1.5+V @ 4.3ghz.........boy was I wrong.
WTG Shane you got it up there
Thanks man I am stoked. 1x dude in front with the 790i Ultra Sli. But he's way frozen. But the 99596 score that was my target.
He has a stronger e8600, way stronger GTX285's
Only for the work that night, tuning the gpu's & I got over the top. My first x6 tests are strong. But number x7 nature is 120 points down.
Attribute that to my processor just hanging in there with the Volts it had
Need to work on this one.........first score way down
Same but better
Xtu 7700k 21.3 HWpoints
Just for the record, I hate this stage of the comp's.
A week and a bit out, and not knowing if someone has more sand than you. Everyone eases up on submissions, not to give any clue away. People start chatting in the background, but then we only know each other online, how much can you believe them? When is too early to lay your best defense down? What happens if my ISP goes down, and I cant sub?
Hate it I tell ya.
Even worse is when you have just finally completed one of your nicest loops with parts that aren't going to earn any points. NOT dismantling it for this comp. I've divested myself of anything old over the last year.. I had like half a dozen 8800's of various sorts, some nice 775 chips, and boards to suit all over the place.
I cant even pick up a couple older GPU's, like the 660Ti's I had not long ago, because I don't have a platform to put them in (unless I dismantle wifeys Haswell, but thats dangerous, and also ITX like mine so no SLi).
I could pick up an entire platform for cheap I guess.. but just for one comp which I know I have no chance of even coming 3rd in?
I need a permanent benching rig...
I am tinkering away and having fun relearning/learning some stuff. So far my best nets 0.1 hwpoints...... but I seem to have stuff that hits the 10 point range when running full speed. To be honest I will be chuffed if I net 100 points total and all of my points will be gotten in the last few days.
See I have a couple of CPU's left but they are only above average. Not exceptionally strong ones.
But I seem to be extremely time poor lately. Wife is saying this weekend should be quite, but so was last weekend and i got nothing done.
Get more caffeine into ya & start looking at Egypt travel brochures
........and that's why it can be expensive to compete. Hardened OC'ers here have a fair amount of parts stashed.
To be fair Paulie from the outset of reading the requirements of the comp....
I can get within 2% of these guys scores till they go frozen. Previous comps we have done here.
That's too much time on the 4790K to not be in the running. 5Ghz vs 6Ghz.
Still the 790i rigs here cost a fraction of my Haswell systems, so I'm prepared to give them a proper thrashing
Couple of runs with my most unscoringest card. Had to stop playing to fix the washing machine......

http://hwbot.org/submission/3498405_ 9.6 HWpoints
Last subs from me.
3dm03 HD5850 18.8 HWpoints
3dm05 HD5850 21.9 HWpoints
A big thanks to Ben and Dino for running this comp.
And good luck to everyone with the comp.
So now we wait for the XTU point rush.
I'm out as well, net is speed capped and I've given this a decent run
Thanks Ben, Dino and Giga for putting this on
Well done so far to Acid and NKOTB (jordan') some good scores there. I wish i had time to paticipate but have been needing to look after the little guy and his surgery. I might get to have a few XTU runs in before end but that's it.
A few = 3 right?
Please no more than 3
It's almost the last week, nothing to worry about right
edit. Also Ben please fix my scores, sure I might have amassed a MASSIVE 3.6 points now
Maybe a couple more. It's all about timing and if i can get it done with Jensen that's all. I have my 6700K and the SS would help with legacy stuff but that's it.
