OneyedK MSI OCC Round 2
 
The system:


3Dmark03 result (42880):


Cinebench R10 result (4184):


wPrime 32M result (10.203s):

So, unless I can find a magic trick, my benching is over.

The problems:
cpu/mobo: No matter what I do, system won't boot over 450x9. I can setfsb 455x9 and run all benchmarks, but that's it. Tried every setting this mobo has :s
Changing the memorytimings didn't help much either.
Had to run at a rather pathetic speed.

vga: My waterblock fits most 3850's, but not MSI's... So there goes the great voltage experiment.
Bought me a Zalman VF-1000 an broke one of the screws :mad:
Oh well, 837/1107 was not bad for an unmodded card with a broken cooler

The good news?!
wPrime 32M will be unbeatable unless you guys switch to quad cores. (In wich case your scores in cinebench and 3D03 will be lower)

I'll be out of town and without internet for 10 days as from this sunday...
When I come back, I'd love to see some hardcore benchresults |D

yup it's sure your score at wprime it's unbeatable with E8500 :S

but we are not forced to use the same cpu for all tests :)

but for this i must find an quad core :(

So the one with the largest number of good cpu's wins :naughty:
But you are right, nobody said we had to use the same cpu for the entire contest.
A little flaw in the rules...

Jip 5th June 2008 18:27

+1 the rules for belgium contest it's very large (vmod,extrem cooling) but it's no bad for that

But if we must use the same cpu, we must know before :(

Massman 5th June 2008 18:54

I'm not sure, but I think you have to use one setup throughout the whole competition.

Jip 5th June 2008 19:00

for me it's more logic all bench with the same setup!

and the more good the setup annonced at begining...

We wait the confirm of jmke for be sure !!!

Massman = E8500
Jip = E8500
Oneyedk's = Q6600

OneyeDK, when you try to chill your setup with ice cubes (looking at the pictures I presume that was your goal), try to get rid of the radiator as it will only heat up the cold water. A radiator forces the water running through to get as hot/cold as the ambient room temperature.

Keep in mind that you're dealing with a high heat load (CPU+GPU) so you may want to start with a larger reservoir which is prechilled before powering the system. Then start using ice cubes to keep the temperature low during few tests. For many benchmark runs, multiple hours that is, you need a high amount of ice cubes, I'm speaking of kilo's here. Take not that you will have to deal with a little bit condensattion, wrap some paper around the tubings which run through your pc housing and around your waterblocks. If so, you should easily hit higher benchmark scores. Don't know what waterblock you used, but isn't the MCW-60 compatible with your videocard?

Quad Core and high FSB needs a very good mobo, P35 reaching 450 is quite respectable seeing as it takes high end X48 boards to get close to 500

Don't know what you are looking at, but it's a closed system. No room for ice cubes:o

If I had more time, I would look for another waterblock...
Sadly, I noticed too late that the block didn't fit.
