    9600gt

    Did some benching, this is what I ended up with:

    E6750 @ 3.44 Ghz
    9600Gt 828/1067/2070 ... idle 44C full load 64C (so far)
    12122 3dmarks

    getting better...:rockout:

    a little more

    I think I could push it a little more seeing as I was testing and benching with dual monitors except for the last bench.:)

    Hey Wolf, Your 8800 better pick up the pace, a volt mod (is there one?) could see my 9600 closing the gap even more. :pimp:

    i dont think those are burn marks but instead i think it was a spill....your supposed to put down this resin stuff b4 you solder a resistor the the board and then you clean it up..it simply looks like the machine squirted out to much and it just dried to the pcb
    Skitzo says thanks.

    for some reason my 8800Gt wont boot in any system with the quad core overclocked, it always makes it screw up and revert to 2.4ghz, thus my 9600GT is currently my fastest card, which is weird cos my 8800GT is 800/2000/1900 and with the quad at 3.6 should be looking at near 15k 3dmakrs. any ideas on why a mobo oc is sensitive to a gfx card sol?

    PCI-E freq? try clearing the cmos and then putting the card in and trying agian..also check you power cables make sure your putting them in the same order and not mixing them up the 8800 requires mroe power so you may be getting the low voltage blackout.

    yeah I'd say check the pcie freq, it can cause the system to not boot.
    make sure it's not set on auto

    its just so weird cos if the mobo is at stock settings (2.4ghz) then its all fine, its only after i start to overclock that it reboots at post.

    assuming that our cards share the same vmem, what timings should i use, im aiming for 2200mhz effective.

    I'll send you my 8600GT with a V2 ... but wait, it's cool cause it's got tattoos. No volt mod yet but I thought about it lots so that should be worth something... ;) And don't forget, she's famous ... she's got pics on the internet. oh yeah it runs at 770/905...should do well with a v-mod. :)
