    After getting a fixed dll from cdawall, I decided to run Aquamark 3 on my current system. Unfortunately, it still crashes after Massive Overdraw, so I didn't get a score, but the benchmark completed in 20 seconds. I remember this being a viable benchmark for my system less than a year ago :laugh:

    Video :D

    You have taken an assault rifle to a knife fight. ;)


    Slap a waterblock on that 3870X2(OC it heavily) and complete it in 10seconds. :laugh:

    I have a waterblock on it. It just doesn't want to OC more than the first core. I'm using the AMDGPUClockTool with the fixed dll as well, but it's not working...fixed dll's and I must not get along =/

    aquamark is more cpu bound than anything, i dont think clocking a gpu up more will help much.

    Well two cores at 4.5GHz would explain the screaming fast benchmark time :p

    The game still crashes for me right after massive overdraw as you can see by the blank screen on the video. It hard locks my computer in XP and I have to reboot, but in Vista I can kill the process.

    I have the Direcpll.dll file that I'm supposed to replace in the benchmark's folder, but it didn't do any good.
