    Is this against your religion? I know when I was in iraq, it was a sin to eat pork

    Been thinking of going water again and was wondering if it would be worth it to replace my Supreme HF Nickel block. What do you think???

    I never owned the Supreme HF, but at EKWB they say the Supremacy is 20% better.

    Those are beasts. I wonder why those VRMs or what are those (on the last picture) are not cover by heatsinks, though.

    Not a big deal really... they can overclock pretty well
    Mine did 1195Mhz core, shure 1200Mhz is doable with alot of them, though it seems dave got good samples.
    My update here in about 2 weeks or less will be very FAPable, promise :)

    BF3 gaming load, stock, max full system power draw: 398 W.

    BF3 gaming load, OC @ 1200 MHz, max full system power draw: 708 W.


    I dunno that an 80% increase in system power consumption is worth the ~30% performance gain...


    :banghead:

    Most 7950's have just two MOSFETs there, with the middle row unpopulated. The extra component on the Gigabyte Windforce cards should lower temps a fair bit per component. Depending on what actual FETs are used, temps are not really an issue, and they do get a fair bit of airflow from the fan directly above...

    1200 MHz was very easy, might be interesting to see how they do under water! Now to find a sponsor for blocks...:p

    Since I've been here lots of exciting pics have appeared. Everybody is praising the 7950 being a great value when overclocked but that power draw is mind boggling. Guess one has to balance all aspects, anyway it's the first time I see somebody reporting on real power consumption when overclocked. Thanks.

    How are you measuring and where are you measuring from? Are you measuring the +12V line by itself?
    I'm not questioning your testing method or results, just curious.

    Taken with my One X. Was only a quick shot for their listing on OCN.

    That was measured using a "wall wart" power meter. So that's the whole system, 3770K included(~roughly 100 W @ 4.6 GHz, 50 W @ stock, measured via 8-pin).


    It gets worse with SB-E...over 900 W, with 2 VGAs, and a single CPU @ 5 GHz....:roll:

    like a Kill-A-Watt?
    If that's reading 700W from the mains, there's a problem. At 100% efficiency, 700W from a 115V mains is just under 7KW being output by the PSU!
    Unless you're taking that into account and converting the value from what it says on the wall wart to the value you're providing us.
    Again, not questioning you, just looking for a way to replicate these results. I'd like to know what the power draw difference is on my system between several different OC settings...

    And sorry to everyone else for derailing the thread.

    You're overstating. It's roughly 700W drawn by PSU, @ at the wall @ 120 V. For example, I'm on X79 now, testing again. 7.16 A x 120 V = 814 W.
