i'm not a gamer

i just benchmark dude >>> so all futuremark, superpi, wprime that sort of stuff heh Smiley
i know we are a minority on forums but places like http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/ this is nothing unusual Smiley
2  Hardware / Motherboard / 790i ULTRA SLI + E8500 + kingpin F1 EE + Corsair Dominators + LN2 = 5.7GHz bench on: March 06, 2008, 01:18:58 AM
 hey Fudo

here is some front page action for ya buddy  Tongue heheheheh


Team.AU Strikes Again!!!

Hey guys

I was just doing some FSB Testing and MHz Testing to know what clocks i will be able to bench on with a couple of 8800GTS 512MB cards on LN2

looks like 5.7GHz easy and with a bit of tweaking and wresting 5.8GHz may be possible

Note: i used the XP disk from my P5B DLX benchmarks and didn't have time to load any drivers....just benched on that drive LOL Cheesy

These are just some sneak peak results. Nothing was optimised. I ran all the windows while running benchmarks and used the PC while on it so this is nothing more a hint to give you heads up that you'll be able to use dual cores to "seriously" bench 3D with the new chipset.

This is the only info i am allowed to post until embargo lifts

Test Configuration:
Nvidia Reference Board 790i Ultra SLI
(stock board, no mods)
Intel Core2 Duo E8500 Q745A703 (1.74-1.81vcore used)
2GB DDR3 Corsair Dominators PC14400  Cool  (1.96vdimm DMM measured)
PCI Express Nvidia 8800GT
620W Corsair PSU
kingpin F1 Extreme Edition Solid copper CPU LN2 Pot
Big mamma 35L LN2 Dewar
80GB SATA Hard Drive
Windows XP Pro 32bit


5.8GHz validation (611MHz FSB  Shocked Shocked >> straight boot from bios as i didn't have any FSB OC software installed) Cheesy


stability wasn't there because my CPU had a nasty cold bug. i had to boot at -118C and keep it there for 1M superpi....anything more or less and i'd lose it heheh (lucky i have this F1EE) but with a bit of work i should be able to get this workable :yepp: i have some things to try Smiley 

Hope you like what you see Grin Grin Cool

thanks guys

hahah Shocked jeez Fudo you don't ask for much


6GHz in Core2 is a milestone
7GHz isn't possible

maybe with some G0 equivalent revisions of 65nm in 45nm tech one day may be possible right now 6.3GHz is about where they are topping out from best of the best chips heh

safe? you mean save? Well im trying to save for a 3850.

Yes I mean that, english isn't my native language, but I can all write in German if that helps Wink
3850 is quite cheap anyways...


Well Im waiting for it to go down to like 120ish us dollars.

You wouldn't rather go for a $35 dollar more GeForce 9600GT with Nvidia's weekly driver updates?  I'm not kidding man they have a new driver every 24 hours or so, here is their inside server:
maybe he prefers once a month updates lol Smiley hehehe

congrats fellas

Vozdra raja Smiley

Here's a little something i posted on a couple of forums including XS that might be interesting for all of you that don't go to those forums Smiley

Team.AU strikes again!!!

First of all big thanks to k|ngp|n for making such an awesome LN2 pot >> namely F1 Extreme Edition. If you guys haven't got one go buy it cause it kicks ass Cheesy

Had a fun benching session today and it seems i nailed some dual core world records here (correct me if i'm wrong pls Cheesy) Cheesy Cheesy

Thanks to Kosta for lending me his board and RAM sticks  Grin

Note: both air and LN2 max benchable FSB was 596-600MHz
i've tried everything except LN2 on NB which will probably help a little but it's just very very odd :shrug:

Test Configuration:
Asus P5B DLX DDR2 Motherboard (1226 bios) FULLY VMODDED
**1.8vcore, 2.44vdimm, 1.80vMCH, 1.8vSB, vdroop/drop pencil mod**
Intel Core2 Duo E8500 Q745A703
2GB DDR2 Corsair Dominators
2GB DDR2 Crucial Ballistix
PCI Express Nvidia 8400GS
620W Corsair PSU :up:
Swiftech copper heatsink on NB
kingpin F1 Extreme Edition Solid copper CPU LN2 Pot
Big mamma 35L LN2 Dewar
80GB SATA Hard Drive + 160GB PATA
Windows XP Pro 32bit + PATA Dual boot XP Pro/Vista Ultimate 32-bit

YOUTUBE VIDEO: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZDPrXMep6u4

i mentioned screen not refreshing in the second part >> changed to PATA drive and it went away

W.R. for dual cores for both 32M & 1024M wPrime
32M time: 13.479s
1024M time: 7m 04.585s

#2 Worldwide for dual cores in 32M SuperPi
32M time: 8m 31.047s

............some of you guys say Windows Vista is slow for SuperPi
didn't use maxmem no wazza here
normal Vista services all running Wink

I ran into some stability problems, changed the drive and benched wPrime but forgot to redo this test at higher speed >> would have had the record on this as well

I ran into some stability problems, changed the drive and benched wPrime but forgot to redo this test at higher speed >>> sub 8s on the next session i think Cheesy





596MHz 8M SuperPi stable on air  Shocked  Cheesy

with the right board this CPU will benchmark at 6GHz Cheesy

QUICK RAM TESTING 2.44-2.48vdimm (tried 2.5/2.54v at 650MHz 8M to see how it responds to volts bumps >> basically all good Cheesy)
