Haha, poor shane.
Did one of the leviathans not work?
Nah those are not sent......
These are random's purchased over on the other side of the world.
Guessing about $290 shipped on those x4 alone
How is your memory on clocking Slot A's ? Wonder if 3K is possible
Board only has mem tweaking. Matrox clock tool is fail.
Assume I need to run win98 & not xp for that to work.
All gpu-z not see the matrox.
Giga ga-7ix...... 800mhz pluto ........matrox 450
Have a 75751 score up on hwbot Matty for the 790i combo.
4.1GHZ no boost on rams or gpu. Got a flyer here man.
Bloody good fun this board matey.
I've had to back down to 4GHZ. The cpu block " old style thermaltake "
does not have enough cooling performance. LoL 50deg idles earlier
Fine tuning the V core, it's above 1.41v anyways to be stable.
Boost on a gpu " assumed rubbish " 76K
The most budget XMS3 corsair rams running under spec, so that will
be fun later when I drop in a hardcore set. But yeah 80K with sli I'd say.....
Put this here for you Atmo. It's good efficiency for 4Ghz. e8600 too new
790i Ultra Sli - e8600 @ 4Ghz - sli 8800 Ultra mild OC - Ballistix Tracer 1333 cas6
EDIT Matthew now I don't doubt you had a 80K with the 9800gx2. New PB 91182 for 3D2001se
I'll be back in this thread soon, putting together a "one last time rig" for a few subzero overclocks and benchies to please shane and conquer atmo.
Trying to persuade a bloke I know from years back before atmo was born to lend me his ln2 kingpin pot for cpu and gpu, we'll see what a 5ghz c2d can do.
Haha poor Atmo..........he's in the cave plotting revenge
Hey not really sporting though going 5Ghz+ frozen.....after all the idea is efficiency NOT brute force it over the line
Other news ....... dropped the 790i back to 4ghz so I could concentrate onwhat makes these x7 tests tick
It's no7 test each time. I can duplicate or better my efforts on the other x6 tests. BUT if you are a tiny bit unstable before you get to no7
test & that can be some time it does hurt that no7 Nature score That has a big impact in the end!
I have a 7900GTX on the way, if it works and I can get it running under 98SE it should beat my previous best in that OS.
Nah old atmo is just out of ideas and good gear to make a comeback in this thread...I mean he has had about 10 pages in this thread to make a blow to scores posted here..but nada.
Leadtek 7900gtx? If so can you take a picture for me so I can repair both my 7900gtx's?
LoL you are such a cruel bugger. I must meet you one day.
We did romp away with the thread though ....... as Win98 was such a PIA
messing with modern hardware. ie Too bloody time consuming
I don't ever underestimate him man...... I'm sure he could serve a good flogging if he was so inclined
Back then first 10 pages........only just got him on the 775
& the 462 board mine had a strong clocker in that socket.
What's changed not all that much ..... a little more experience on the tuning.
XFX, but if memory serves me correctly all the 7900GTX's were a reference design. I'll post pics when it arrives.
Have a 99833 guys.......dialed in the Ultra's sweet
Wish I had an ultra still.
I'll have enough spare soon matey. They are a heap of fun & sure they give at least 2000 points over a GTX
Factor in @ $75 landed AU. Not cheap anymore
Yeah, sold shit tons back then for $50 shipped on ebay.
I've got an ASUS 7800GTX 256MB that looks like a reference design I can take pictures of if you need.
edit: nevermind, misread you were after 7900GTX pics...
7800gtx pictures welcome as well, have a pair that needs some smd repairing.
Big mistake. I've seen some mild OC versions hit 100 euro in England.
One of the black shroud 8800 Ultra's can go to a new home mathew
Just have to wait on this one & see how she runs Man I love the artwork.
