crazy unit dude
Strapped some fans to the compressor for additional cooling.
Got the system up and running tonight finally, stripped my GTX280, lacered the card. Insulated and put system together. SO far there doesnt appear to be any condensation forming on the card. Only been benching 30mins, results to come Friday
GTX280 under phase nice stuff
Nice stuff Kayl... temps on the GPU and is it volt modded?
that pic was cpu/gpu temps.
gpu was between -53 and -58c load depending on the 3dmark stage and mhz clocked at. still fine tunning the card mhz wise.
cpu -50c to -55c load
idle both heads around -55c to -60c.
still need to fine tune the system refrigerant wise and also each feed cpu/gpu head for high load and coldest temp etc.
I have to find the vmods for this card yet. that is the next step
Unless you have a link for me heehe
Nice stuff mate....
Only think i could find at XS was a 285 mod....
Am pretty sure a 280 mod will be in there...
k thanxs for that, i found this tonight, might give the below link a try tomorrow hehe
little benching tonight managed 26k 3dmark 06
didnt get much done last night benching wise,
installed new set of windows, windows 7 and also a fresh XP 32bit
had to set the gpu back to air for that, then re insulated the card just using stickyback tape
the erasors were sweetting a little too much after a few hours benching.
managed number 3 rank on hwbot for single GTX 280 vantage 16509
also this was a week or 2 ago benching ln2
First pour of the night, i love the way the ln2 boils inside the souther cross holes.
and me having a little drink of ln2, burnt my lips dammit looks like i got into a fight today.
we started off benching the i7 950 in the X58 Classified but were experiencing a weird cold bug at -60's
Half way through the night we setup a second system.
We ran out of time and didnt get any new results worth posting.
hench i only just posted this info tonight
the vids are cool though
Nice stuff...... Have u found a i7 that works on a cascade yet?
good work must of learnt heaps about benching i7 with ln2 ??
James and myself were benching one the other day that runs -120C Hope all is well mate
Nice one Kayl! I hear you are coming over to Adelaide?
u guys get all the good luck, ill have to buy 5 b4 i get 1 LOL
All good champ... ur self?
yes i learn drinking ln2 burns your lip
yes im off there for a week leaving on the 12th august for a family holiday
not sure ill get a bench in but hope to drop in and see james
found the vmod on XS, but it didnt increase my overclock at all
stock was 1.068v, at 1.25v the system wasnt clocking as well
stok load voltages were 1.2v
seem colder temps reflected better oc that increase in volts
love to see this card on ln2.
i also tried the evga software vmod which SHOWED correct voltages at idle, but load volts dropped back stock @ 1.2v no matter what i set it to.
so vmod is the only true voltage increase for this card
little Gigabyte X58 UD5 benching. did the vdroop mod and got some nice increases
Gig X58 UD5 I7 960 on ln2
