    Hey all.

    Boostisbest, Snappy1, Dinos22 and I had a bit of a bench session the other day and thought we'd share some of our experiences and results.

    We had a load of hardware to use but time goes so fast that we didn't get a chance to use a lot of it and with only 50L of LN2 to use.

    We expected some better results than we got but some were still pretty good and we had fun, which is the main thing.
    Next time we'll be better prepared and have more LN2.

    I only have some pics and short video of the 10 hour session but Dinos22 has the LN2 results which he'll add soon.
    Not sure if Boostie and Snappy1 saved any results from their cascade session but I'm sure they'll post them up if they do.

    Best bunch of guys you'll ever meet.

    Boostisbest- Loves to yell and curse at his hardware, cracks me up :lol:

    Snappy1- All is good, nothings a drama with him, always a happy snappy :D

    Dinos22- Be careful around this guy when he's pouring LN2, a bit reckless, treats it like water, yes my hands got cold a few times from him:p

    Alba- That's me, hardware junkie and I'll OC and bench anything :leet:

    The 2 LN2 dewars that were full.

    Dinos22 spilling LN2 all over the place. Now we know why he insulated the board so well.

    Hey boys

    It was great to see you again and meet Alba finally. I really enjoyed this but next time boys prepare to do the entire thing on your own....first time i showed ya and next time you should know it all right :D

    It was nice to see that you are thinking about your benching and working on the OSes, decent troubleshooting experience. I think you fellas are ready to go LN2 and get into a new level of benching and more stuff to think about while you bench but improve your results tremendously

    BTW i stupidly didnt play with ET6 before i came over and only after i got back home did i realise how to bench with shortkeys. We could have been benching 6Ghz 06 with that crappy chip of mine lol

    We did pretty well for an initial bench session with a new board and chip i havent benched on it.........too bad my A0 980X is losing steam BIG time.....degraded some 300Mhz from last time i benched it but with 1.7VTT and 2Vcore it shouldnt be a surprise lol

    Me and Alba benched the LN2 rig and ended up on 5.64GHz 3DMARK06 through all tests including CPU test......i checked normal 3D frequency and it was creeping up to 6.1GHz almost so its a shame i didnt have ET6 hotkeys worked out as 40K would fall 100%

    We did a single card first.....card on air cooling

    [​IMG]

    stuck a second card in and got this

    [​IMG]

    three cards was only a bit faster so we moved to 4x cards and got this

    [​IMG]


    I didnt tweak the system at all...just wanted to get some runs done for the sake of finishing off on some runs at least :thumbup:

    Here is a 6Ghz 3D run with 3DMARK03 with cards on stock clocks :eek:
    not bad......shame there was an issue clocking the cards with 4th card installed....im thinking the volts may not have been applying properly to the last card with MSI software as it didnt make sense......I've benched the board with some mate back in april with cards doing 1250 each in quadfire on ln2 so no idea what was up there

    We only used 1xPSU for the setup and it did really well.....Antec 1200OC version

    great job dinos and alba. So close to 40k. I got a pot a few months ago but no one down here in Tas has any LN2 skilz. I have the local Cow AI (artificial insemination) guy teed up to give me some LN2. Dont laugh its true :p one day.... I might give you a call Alba :D

    Nice stuff boys.

    Alba now u know how long a it takes to post a decent score with sub zero, things rarely ever go right.

    But when it does its friggen awsome.

    Bevan did u try ur 980x under a cascade?

    Anyone in Melbourne keen to give this a go? I've never gone past air before but would love to give it a crack.

    S.S. is evil... I would much rather use dry ice.

    I am about to buy another 3 GTX285's, so once I get those and a dewar i'll give you a PM and we will have to organise something.

    :)
