Post your 3dmark scores here preferably with proof you cheaters ;D
In my sig ;D
Ok, Here's a screenshot. I overclocked my card a bit further.
I found out how to OC my CPU ;D
My vid card was OD'ed 634/1600/1007
^^ i have the same CPU OCd to 3Ghz. what are your temps? mine runs quite hot at full load @ 70 degree Celsius
At that speed mine got up to 87c during the CPU test, and 70c at stock, so I don't have it OCed right now. I want to try and reseat my heatsink, but since that thing is SO HARD to mount to the mother board I'm scared that I might damage my mobo
those are exceptionally high temps especially with that case since it has very good air flow. i have a generic case right now with no fans but im upgrading to a CM Scout
Yeah I know, it idles at 30c, but reaches 70c under load at stock speed... ???
Damn, I'm dumb, I have been wondering why the heck my CPU temps got so high, and just now, I took off the HSF and saw that I forgot to add thermal paste >.<;
Now my CPU is amazingly cooler, 24c when idle vs 30c, and 50c at load vs 70c.
Well I'm at 11,611 3DMarks. It'll do.
How is it that you ran your CPU without thermal paste and not burning it within a couple of hours? :O :O
No idea XD I ran it for a year like that (not OC'ed thank goodness) because I didn't want to have to deal with the friggin heaksink. Now it's fine. I'm a noob I guess :squint;
3DMark seems to be the only thing that responds to overclocking (CPU or GPU), I got no increase in performance in anything else, not even crysis, even at 3.2Ghz. so I'm not going to bother with OCing.
These days unless you're overclocking by close to 1000mhz or more, the difference isn't very apparent.
Man I remember the ol' days on Gamespot when I hit 6k in 3dmark05 I nearly crapped my pants.
I was looking at my futuremark scores last night and it was funny to see what I was doing back in the day. It was a little flash back for me. :afro:
Here is 3Dmark06. ONE damn point from 25K!
And here is 3DMark Vantage. ;D
fastest system 47000 points? holy hell!
yeah was around 2 months back
Yeah, I asked around, and thats what people told me too. God OCing is just not worth it at all. I'd rather my hardware last alot longer.
Fan went out on my old video card so I replaced it with a HD 5770.
My score went up to 13640.
