i did a lot of trys & changes theses last times, coming from AM2 to AM3+ via AM3 sockets...sometim...hm...often problems with "just born" products but always a pleasure to try this or that

i had lot of adventures....

i luv my lil noctua but i always found it uggly because of the color of the fans...fixed with 2 zalman (bit more noisy but quite as efficient as the noctuas):

oc4.JPG

oc6.JPG

from AM3(MSI 970A Fuzion/lucidHydraChipset/AMD) to... AM3(MSI NF980-G65/nvidiachipset):

IMG_3036.JPG

from AM3(MSI NF980-G65/nvidiachipset) to AM3+(MSI990FXA-GD80/AMDChipset):

oc1.JPG

with some improvements on the "stock thermal pasting":

IMG_3065.JPG

IMG_3067.JPG

a little conclusion simply jumped to my mind....if u dont plane to run a tripple sli or to nitro break OC reccords a "cheap" mobo like the 870A fuzion is the best deal :120euros , best oc results(temps & stability), best 3dm06 results, inovative(usb3 & sata6gb/s & hybrid chipset)....but....for nothing i want to change mine...?.!!...lolz^^

Looks like you've been very busy M8! You've got a couple of 22k scores there as well!

I've been having overheating issues with my primary card hitting 90 degrees in certain games. Eventually I get a high pitched whine, which I'm guessing might be an overheat alarm.
I'm thinking of 2 solutions for this atm:
Either find a longer SLi bridge(if they exist) and run the 2nd card in the 3rd PCI-x slot so I've got a better amount of space between the cards or look into a water cooling solution.
As water cooling will make my PC a lot quieter I'm tempted to go down that path.
If I do I'll let yaz know how I go!

u can find longer SLI briges for very cheap prices on EBay
i never understood why manufacters often put the x16 on the pcie slots 1 & 2, like it happen to you they are too close
for first time i had luck and i have the x16 on slots 1 & 3....=-10 ° on the 1st gfx....
fyi i did some trys in the past about the gain between x16 or x8 for the second GFX(to try to get more distance) and i never found a noticeable improvement between the two mode....imo the °gain worth it (to have 1 gfx in x8^^)
s**t that u re so far i have 3 unused sli bridges here...one is so long that i ask me where they planed to use it...lol

The PCI-E lane config is mostly dependent on the chipset manufacturer btw. With just 2 PCI-E slots the mainboard manufacturer has only the choice to put more than one additional slot between both of them.
Those very long and flexible sli bridges are useful for cards with big 3rd party coolers (f.e. ACS1, TR Shaman, EKL Peter) which are wider than the card itself - i did need one of those in the past several times but had only the standard sized ones ^^

You have been busy. 

Glad to hear your remain solid and the colour has returned.

Did a little data summary to try and get my old head around the results >

haha nice one achernar m8, shame that 3dm06 only store 10 results because lot of results have gone, got 3 accounts= 30 results only , and i noticed the scores storage limitations too late
cant wait to see some results on the new board with oc & sli working together,just to try to justify the money spend and to beat that lil blue point floatting @ the top of the results (870AFuzion) +.+
thx for the graph

@LPS
Cheers

@Bl!tz
That is a shame about 3dm06. I wonder if there are any alternative benchmarking software. But I can see the problem of comparing past results when there are no standards to inter convert between.

I did like the comparison with the SLI results I thought that was quite enlightening. Although the NF980 result was interesting that higher clock speeds show a non-linear response. ? There are bottle necks at lower clocks speeds.

Will have to get you some dry ice or liquid nitrogen for your birthday to push your extreme hobby to new heights!

Haha, now where I made a little break from overclocking and spend more time on mapping/modelling blitz is doing it the other way around.
Anyway my next dice session will be in septemer - visitors/participants welcome wink



3DM06 is very CPU power dependant, espacially if you are using a CF/SLi setup or a fast single card. I've already got 28k points with 2 old HD3870 (~same level as 8800GT)

The formula for calculating 3DM06 score is as follows:

3DMark06-Score = 2.5 * 1 / ((1.7/GFX-points + 0.3/CPU-points) / 2)

with: GFX-points = 0.5 * (SM2-points + SM3-points)

 

Just type another CPU score like 10k f.e. and see how much the final score is changing :)

 

If you are looking for alternatives try Unigine HEaven Benchmark f.e. This one only depends on the GPU power, is for free and also has a DX9 and DX11 modus.

I read that the 3DMark11 has no limitations on results but is more directed towards GPU. An Alternative unencumbered benchmark geared for CPU is SuperPi or its multi-theaded counterpart (Hyper PI ). I'm surprised mAlkAv didn't raise that one ;)

 that s exactly why i keep my butt on 3DM06, always interressant to compare results while changing cpu...and gpu, gives an accurate idea about what really change something + i hate 3DM vantage registering key system + i only play UT3 & crysis, both are GFX & Cpu demanding and i found 3DM06 scoring close & representative how performs thoses games on my rigs

 thx for the explanations bout the scoring

i ll try the bench u re pointing to...under DX9...lol^^

@achernar:  GTX285 is still under DX10....no real interrest to try a DX11 tool....and imo it just will not work, super pie and such are top notch but only focused on cpu = too far from games to me

You are right about 3DM11 but it can't be used with pre-DX11 gfx cards.

SuperPi is my favourite benchmark next to 3DM01 - you don't want to know how many (houndreds) hours i spend for tweaking/optimizing 32M runs at different clock speeds on different systems confuse

But as you mentioned it's quite old (1995), uses only a single core, can't take advantage of up-to-date CPU instruction sets and is not suited for comparing Intel and AMD CPUs aww

 

 

@Blitz: Try this download link: http://91.121.148.119/downloads/hwbot_unigine_heaven_v103/

It's and extended version of the benchmark with an additional tool for better score comparison.

I'm interested in what score you will get at the DX9 preset with your SLi setup.

Thats the best score I could achieve with my HD5850, just for comparison: http://hwbot.org/image/613493.jpg


Btw, why not only using crysis and ut3 benchmark tools if these are the only games biggrin

How many frames do you get in crysis mate?

will do a new one asap

about Crysis HOC bench...neva have succed to get it workin

in game (Crysis1):

with the 870AFuzion and the 1090t at 4.0ghz + 2xGTX285, with fraps on, it was something like:

very high: around 60 FPS with some significant drop downs when lot of action on complex environements & lightings & shadowing (drop downs to 30 fps)

high: quite stable between 80/100 fps with some occasionnal & isolated drop downs (50fps mini)



very nice bench that unigine one , thx for the link

Nice results mate aww

Crysis has a built in GPU and CPU benchmark from the demo island level - are you using this one? There is no need for Fraps or another proggi actually.

@Bl!tz

Arhh it's been too long since I thought about any of this stuff and thats shows up pretty quickly. Looks like mAlkAv is the one to guide you in the right direction for all tool OC.

@mAlkAv
I figured there had to be a reason. I'm sorry to hear that Hyper PI has not come off age, sounds like such an elegant project.

I think HyperPi is nice but just has no large circulation. Certain reviewers are using it for each mainboard review but the majority of the community is not used to it. wPrime seems to be more common if it comes to multi-threaded CPU benchmarks.

@Blitz
There are several benchmark tools for Crysis but it's not easy to compare between different Flybys. Have a look in your Crysis install directory /Bin32 and open the batch file "Benchmark_GPU". Thats the built-in benchmark which can be used with every copy of the game or the demo (which is for free).

Hd5850 result at 1920x1080, 16:1 AF, 4xAA(ingame):

I finally got a 9cm SLi bridge today. The extra length allowed me to chuck my 2nd card in the 4x PCI-E slot so I have a 5cm gap between the cards.
The result....a 40 degree drop in GPU temps!!! LOLz    
Running Crysis 2 (with all DX11 gizmos) before was overheating the cards forcing me to declock from 811Mhz to 710Mhz. The primary card was running around 98degrees and the secondary card around high 70's.
In Crysis 2 now, with the longer bridge, both cards now only hit the high 60's running at their factory overclocked speeds. Great to see the twinFrozr fans finally making their claim to keep the cards cool!

On top of this my PC is is 10 times quieter as I now don't need the loud side fan any more!


Only prob is that the shipping cost was twice the amount of the bridge itself.... :(

What about the performance when using the x4 PCI-E (2.0?) slot - does it hurt your FPS much?

glad to hear that, recommended uses of slots 1&2 when they are close make no sence...even if they are the x16 ones

+1 to malkavs question

Wow I didn't know you could run a graphics card at 98oC - I always figured they'd be like CPU's and auto shut off.

Good work retuning to Sane temps.

I'm not sure you can get fps values out of Crysis 2 unless your using a third part tool.

I've only played Crysis 2 for about 20 mins and I haven't noticed any performance loss.
From benchmarks in the past I think the performance loss was roughly -5 - 10fps when a second card goes from x16 to x4.

I don't own a copy of Crysis 2 but as far as I know they re-enabled the console commands with the DX11 patch, including r_displayinfo=1?
5-10 fps from what base frame rate? Going from 16 to 4 lanes can be a serious bandwith cut - a higher PCI-E clock can compensate this a bit. smile

Just played for another 30mins.
Not sure what the framerate was bit it's running very smoothly..even with any framerate loss, which is all I need really.
I'll try that command to see what the framerate is, when I next play it!

@Bl!tz

Well it wasn't meant to be joke but can truthfully be interpreted both ways. :D

@mAlkAv
I too an not an owner of this game, but I'm glad to hear they put it back.

@LPS
I'm interested in a before and after comparison - you could also cook an egg on the GPU while taking measurements. Sort of a comparison of methods experiment - egg frying vs digital readout.

? Which is more accurate.

i wasnt happy with the CPU temperatures under OC so i ve reseat the cooling with new thermal paste
when i installed it, my stock of noctuah & AC mx2 was off so i rushed to the local shop and buyed what i found :cooler master "high performance" paste
@ first application it jumped to my eyes that the quality wasnt good , not homogen with some more liquid parts(the price was a bit up though ) so i decided to give a try to the Artic mx4 and... wow... really a nice product, easy to apply, homogen, and efficient

-cpu @ 3.8ghz:

here on pict "B" with the old cooler master goo(fans @ 100%):



*here on pict "A" with mx4: (A1 fans on "silent mode" & A2 fans @ 100%)

-cpu @ 4.00ghz:

*with old paste the cpu needed 1.45v to reach 4.00ghz but was giving errors under OCCT cpu stress, now it s stabble and needs only 1.44v....cold is the key :



nothing to add on the results , they speak by themselves, just to proove the importance of the thermal paste

so here are my last adventures:

The "BitDefender" crusade...

since many years i use bitdefender av, in 2008 when UT3 appears i was in real pain to get decent rendering the first 8 month, fps problems
after hours googling i found that my av was guilty and that i needed to enable the "gaming mode" to get normal results...was fixed!
....but since 6 month even with the "gaming mode" option UT3...and sadly only UT3 isnt working,i did a try on shangrila with av installed or not:
with bitdefender installed :avg fps=35 mini=16 maxi=120
with bitdefender uninstalled: avg fps=155 mini=125 maxi=200 (setting on 200max^^)
so one month ago i uninstalled bit defender and installed another one with no more problems...till...

The new mobo....

i have a 990FXA-GD80 since 2 month and after hours on forums and 9 bios flash i still not abble to oc the cpu with sli enabled
the msi customer support is awfull on this one and send me in touch with a classic "contact ur reseller", got a lot of help from a nice aussie guy on msi forums but we re out of ideas so i decided yesterday to return it back for reparation....
i have remove the cpu and installed it on my second pc....had to stole it in my childrens room +.+
it work nicely but guess what....i have to fight my wifey to convince her to allow me to remove bitdefender from this pc...lol she payed bitdefender for 3 years on three pcs...and yeah i must admitt that i like bitdefender too, nice shield...but...i prefer UT3...


the "new" farmers pc....

so here s my new rig for some weeks:

MSI K9N2Diamond
PhenomII1090t 6x 4.00ghz
freezer 64
Velociraptor 150gb
w7 x64
DDR2 corsair 4x1gb/667
2xMSI8800GTZilent
BFG800W
Antec ninehundred

lol....did some trys, the cpu oc nicely under 50°c @4.00ghz with a 12€ freezer64 on a 4yrz old AM2+ board, with that oc i can sli both 2xgtx285superpipe and 2x8800gt with a BFG800w and the antec 1000w....quite frustrating to spend money on new material...lol



i hope to be abble to install another av soon and to rejoin for beta-testing, and lets be crazy!... to get my mobo back, working like a charm....
..so sorry guys, for now i m like a ghost

yo brothas,

just some words to tell that i had some pc adventures theses last weeks:
-my main mobo was a "wrong" one and not working correctly so i ve send it back to my reseller who sended it back to msi after examen(problem confirmed)
-so....i m on my second pc after lot of assembling /dispatching i found that one of my 8800gt was dead (giving me randomly the "graphic driver have shut down and have been restarted"+ a black screen....fixed by using only the other gfx
-i had lot of ram problems (memory satured) because a wrong java install , fixed too but the ram still very slow...haha

so i decided to be patient and i ve rebuild the second PC for my children and i m tweakin all what i can to optimize it
the result is cool and work nicely even if it a bit light for the mapping operations to my tastes
my children are in a "minecraft" period and as they are in hols for two weeks i try to share this experience with em...really fun game and interressant concept but ...tbh....visually i hate it

sorry to be off some days more, i keep an eye here of course but i m still off ut world till my pc is back, having good time with children is so good for the old monkey

boyah!

I agree with your sentiments on Minecraft M8! My kids are currently into it at the moment.
Concept is very interesting and works quite well, but the gfx turn me away. If they just added, even just some bilinear filtering to merge those colours together I think it could be quite the visual treat!
My oldest son has made quite a few good things in Minecraft and I think he likens it to his version of the Unreal Editor, after watching what I do in UE3.

yup if i was abble to "accept " the cubical looking...the texturing is so poor...rofl....probably the only way to manage such tremendous areas and to keep it playable for middle class PCs (kicking hard in the RAM & in the cpu!)
...what i can add is that i find it very addictive, it s so easy to handle it that it s open to everyone...agree with you here too, nice introduction to the mapping world, even if the jump from minecraft to UE require lot of courage, leaving such a "lazy tool" isnt easy...héhéhé

oh...other point i noticed is how it improve ur aiming if u play with the cam /jetpack view and try to moove while adding/substracting cubes

Must be that suspect AMD hardware that you keep buying M8! bleh    wink

 

Gunna upgrade a Mates PC tonight b4 we get drunk n play Rock Band.  BF3 was taking 2-3 minutes longer than mine to load levels and was somewhat unstable. New system should give his gfx card a good run 4 it's money!

He's going from a Q8400 based system(4 gig DDR2-800) to a i7-2600k, SSD based rig.

Specs: i7-2600K, Gigabyte UD3P-B3, 8gig DDR3 1333 G-Skill RAM, Patriot PYRO 128Gb SSD.  He'll use his old case and 5870 video card, and I'll recommend picking up a 2nd card sometime over xmas!

yooooo!
i m finally back...with my main PC, took me more than 6 weeks to get my mobo back and repaired...hm...what a farce! not repaired @ all!! +.+
the problem remain the same: i cant OC my CPU with SLI enabled...shame because this mobo is supposed to allow me to do so...

as i cant imagine to use an AMD rig without OC (and as i dont want to go on the intel side)i plane to sold my 2 MSI GTX285 superpipe on Ebay (shame here two because they are top notch gfx's)

i ll probably go for a MSI6950TwinFrozrIIIPowerEdition if i succed to get enough cash from the 285's

for first time (after 10GFXs & 6 mobos) i m disapointed by MSI...big manufacters have **** customer services , respect to Corsair, OCZ, Nova, Kingston and co...next mobo will not be MSI...i ll give asrock a try^^

i was allowed by wife to upgrade my CPU cooling, hesitations between WaterCooling custom build or kit...best balance imo was the CorsairH100 and if i was interrogative on the efficience all my doubts are now gone...max temperature @ 4.00ghz after 1 hour OCCT CPU stress is 36°...LOL!!!...had to watch several times to believe it :p awesome

wc4.JPG

so....after this long break i ll be back on my work asap

i feel comfortable with my PC and it s quite essential to me ...haha

boyah!

Mmm liquid cooling.
I'm tempted to get something like this for xmas. Maybe the H60 though.(so it fits better in my case)
Then I can finally OC my 920 for the first time.
