    Last night a managed to sneak out for a couple of hours after getting kids into bed

    This session was basically with two goals in mind.
    1. Firstly i wanted to reach the ABSOLUTE MAX clocks i could get out of the GFX card on std.watercooling
    2. Secondly to work on my efficiency some more towards 90K(provided i could hit nature cap or with nature cap calculator in mind)

    WELL i've got some more results. I was hoping to have better GPU clocks but it is what it is i guess

    The first result is what i had as max clocks from previous night and was my fastest run. Efficiency could have been better hence why i wanted to do some more work on it

    What has changed >> well clocks have gone up on GPU as have the volts :D.

    Score: 88340 points
    GPU clocks: 1080/1174
    GPU volts: 1.435v
    the rest of the system unchanged

    OK that was fine and all but i still needed something special to inch closer to 90K so i worked on it some more. There was lots of booting and rebooting, GPU clock testing/volt testing, LOD tinkering and order mucking around etc etc etc

    In the end i reached slightly higher GPU clocks and improved my efficiency tremendously.

    Score: 88847 points
    GPU clocks: 1092/1174
    GPU volts: 1.45v
    the rest of the system unchanged

    you can see in the screen that i've approached 89960 with nature at 1199 :D

    I'll be back to share more of my testing "shooting myself in the foot by telling ppl how to beat me as one friend says to me" :D


    Next test will have to have some chilled water at least cause i see no other way of gaining those last 65FPS in nature :shrug:. i might be able to pull it off with 1150MHz core even i'll see.

    I might tweak my subtimings some more as well as there are still a few timings that need to be improved.

    What marks you getting on %100 bog stock settings?

    Would be interesting to see what kind of % increase in performance your getting for "free" :D

    it seems that most cards should hit 950-1000 core, 1100-1200 vmem on stock cooler

    Nice work, this is what you call dedication. I remember doing all this when 3DM99 and 2001 came out (yes that long ago) and at that time it was a little more competitive/closer than it is now but that was only coz we didn't have the variety in hardware as we do now. It's so funny to think that back then 40FPS in nature was a good score.

    once i figure out the best LOD/run order i will let you fellas know as well

    btw the other part of the comp is dual GPUs and fastest scores are still in the low 93K

    check this out :D

    i dont have much experience but if its possible to enable and disable crossfire on the fly there could be some good dual cards score here too

    Great benching mate :thumbup: Make that 4890 scream. If you need some better cooling on that gpu I've got this bad boy sitting here doing nothing. Would make a sweet gpu cooler.
