    Didn't know this club existed, interesting :D

    Count myself in with an ASUS EAH6850 clocked at 790/1100 now running under water with a MCW82

    SirKeldon, you shall be added. :)

    Put an intake fan in the side panel (hoping it will blow onto the cards sufficiently).

    Ahh ok yes i can understand that with crappy spacing, but mine has good spacing with 120mm fan blowing right on both the coolers.

    For the moment as there brand new i cant be stuffed replacing the coolers till there out of warranty.

    I need a fan controller so i can up my side fan, that should help.

    Playing with fan positions now, running at 95c load and that's a bit warm for my liking.
    I was going to hold on to my 5970 but now I might sell it to help offset the cost of some waterblocks.
    But then again a new board might be fun and a little cheaper.

    Hi, all and hi Chevalr1c.

    Count me in.

    Today I started using AMD again.
    HIS HD 7850 iCooler (not the fancy IceQX or Black IceQ), running on stock because this one is a GPU cruncher : http://www.hisdigital.com/un/product2-698.shtml

    No picture yet, but I think GPU-Z validation should be enough : www.techpowerup.com/gpuz/w2wrw

    Loving this card so far.
    Quiet, cool (57 C under 95-100% load), and definitely a far better choice than my previous card for crunching purpose.
    My old 560Ti spent almost 17 minutes to finish 2 GPU WU, this 7850 spent just 10 minutes to finish 4 GPU WU! Amazing.

    I'll be in from tomorrow.

    Sapphire HD 7850 OC 2GB on it's way in the post to me, I figured that AMD's driver team are really starting to optimise the series and this focus on frame latency is a big thing to me. Will let you know how it goes :)

    Maybe I can join with my three VisionTek HD 7970's (crunching/gaming rig) and three VisionTek HD 7770's (cruncher)?

    Well, remember the Mass Benchmarking I wanted to do at the end of last year? Only 3 people filled in the spreadsheet with results so that is off the list for now. Although you are right, I will not organise anything else for now. If you have ideas for the thread, please let me know. I am still "all ears".

    @HammerON - Damn you and your perfect looking rigs :)

    @Chevalr1c - Let's get everyone in this thread benchmarking, I find it really interesting to see how some GPUs scale in performance with different CPUs. I'd probably be at the lower end with mine but as long as I get a smooth experience from it I don't mind come tomorrow.

    I have loads of different games and would be more than willing to have a mass benchmarking session for the benefits of this thread.

    I meant to fill that in. I never got around to it. It had so many tests. Maybe something simpler. Maybe just 3dmark11.

    None of that is really too useful. I wonder what we could do that could be helpful. I used OCN 7970 clubs graphs to compare the voltages used by others to get to 1300mhz. But covering 5000-8000 has a ton of cards.

    You can count me in for some friendly benchmarking
    I have a few cards that qualify and also curious how cards scale with different cpu's

    Crysis 3 is open beta, maybe everyone could load it up with FRAPS running and see who can pull the best FPS?? Just a suggestion to get things going.

    I filled in the massmark at least for what I have readily available

    I think for the benching, we should leave games out as some people may have them while others don't.
    Maybe some 3dMark 11 and/or Vantage, Unigine Heaven, Catzilla, and for the lulz Aquamark 3? All are free.

    Well, in a few months I might have nice things to do with this club, if I have got ideas and more time. :)

    You will be added.

    Will be added.

    Thanks, although the data won't be used for some time, hence the strike through. After we redesigned the mass benchmark we might be rebooting it.

    Well, one of the complaints of people in the club that v1 of the Massmark was too much a pain-in-the-neck because the large amount of tests. I agree with you in terms of game-based benchmarks though.

    I may just add some in here tomorrow anyway, somebody may be interested in them with the FX chips being a bit of a mystery to alot of people, gaming performance wise.

    Definitely 3DMark11 - who uses Vista anymore? lol

    Perhaps 3DMark06 too for the poor souls still on XP

    I figured out how to make decent tables in vBulletin's format, finally. So, the mamber lists are now in tables. :D

    If we will compare 3DMark results, we will probably stick to 3DMark 06 and 3DMark 11.

    Managed to find my 3D11 run from a while back.
    http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/4629325
    It was a little unstable, so I'm betting if I went back and ran it again with the same clock speeds and the new driver, I'd break 16k.
