'MickeyMouse' claims the 3DMark 05 world record with 34,792 points

Nobody is ever satisfied with just leaving a world record intact. And so, renowned overclocker "MickeyMouse" recently slapped together a Core 2 Duo E6850 clocked at 5,190MHz , two ATI Radeon HD 2900XT's in CrossFire, a couple gigabytes of DDR3 clocked at 923 MHz with 7-6-5-15 timings. With a little help from liquid nitrogen and dry ice, MickeyMouse pushed his system all the way to 34,792 points, snagging the world record. MickeyMouse aspires to break 35,000 points.

holy shit thats friggin awesome, thing that gets me though is that if the 8800Ultras are better than the HD2900's then how come there never used in world record rigs? this isnt a stab at nvidia im just generally curious :respect:

8800ultras are used in world records, but 2900 always comes back for more :)

It's an E6850 NOT a QX6850 :P

The 8800Ultra's are faster at higher resolutions, this being 3dmark 05, it's run at a paltry 1024x768

no its not it still says E6850 on there still

Now think if it was 4 GB instead of a couple like it says

It is an E6850, and there are 2GB of RAM, check the screenshot ;).

oh wait my bad got mixed up there:roll::roll::roll:

And about the 2 GB im saying 3DMark would probably hit 35,000 if he had 4GB of DDR3 instead of just 2

Why is that?

I would think that bumping up to 4GB would actually hurt his score regardless of whether that was with 4X1GB or 2X2GB. He is really pushing the hell out of those @ 923MHz with those timings and I doubt he could get ANY 4GB config to run the same.

You do realize hes cooling it with dry ice and liquid nitrogen right:pimp::rockout:

Plus with that stuff cooling it down so much it wouldnt surprise me that it can take those extra sticks and remember DDR3 has stock clocks alot higher than that right now, last I heard they were at like 1666 mhz or something at the max

I don't care about 3dmark 05 and 06. How about a DX-10 3D Mark - a current benchmark?

Not the RAM, no he is not.

1666MHz DDR = 833MHz ... He is running at 923MHz = 1846MHz DDR @ 7-6-5-15 which is basically pushing the laws of physics

The best timings you can buy anywhere near that speed would be a 2GB kit of DDR3 1866 @ 8-8-8-20 ($650 btw) or you can get a 4GB kit of DDR3 1600 @ 7-7-7-20 (for a measly $1000)

3DMark05 does not really benefit much at all from more than 2GB, but it will always benefit from higher memory bandwidth.

He got nearly 35,000 points with a PCIe x4 slot? That's amazing, isn't it?

its 2X8 if he used Asus Blitz Extreme like in his single-card world record ;)

Seriously mason:slap: read the bold print:nutkick: that i put on this quote^^^^^^^^^

i just pointed out to you that 923mhz seems like a pretty low speed to me for DDR3 thats all im saying and surely he could overclock that DDR3 to at least 1366 MHZ:shadedshu:shadedshu:shadedshu:shadedshu

I just think that low speed for the ram for a lack of better words is bottlnecking the true potential of this PC but hey maybe theres no reason for him to have it higher right now since hes allready got the record, he might just be cheating himself to get the record again right back when someone in the near future beats his current record.

did you look at the pic "CPU-Z" its 923X2 = 1846Mhz ;) lol


wait its 922.8X2 = 1845.6Mhz :p

As Homer simpson would say DOH:slap::slap::banghead::banghead: didnt think about the dual segment part

All hail this man he is an overclocking GOD:respect:

^ dude you are contradicting yourself there. You just said that 4gb instead of 2 gb would be better because he would get better clocks which is not correct. That is why mason was correcting you. Now you are saying he should add more voltage which may be correct but that is not what you were saying before....

You shouldn't be sending mason a head slap, he was right and you were wrong... simple. :)
