    These are random's purchased over on the other side of the world.

    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 :p
    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 :lol:

    Hey not really sporting though going 5Ghz+ frozen.....after all the idea is efficiency NOT brute force it over the line :tongue:
    __________

    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 :thumbdn: 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 :tired:
    ___________

    I don't ever underestimate him man...... I'm sure he could serve a good flogging if he was so inclined :Paranoid:

    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 :confused: 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.

    I'll have enough spare soon matey. They are a heap of fun & sure they give at least 2000 points over a GTX :thumbup:

    Factor in @ $75 landed AU. Not cheap anymore

    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...

    Big mistake. I've seen some mild OC versions hit 100 euro in England.
