Wow, if I'd had the power and stuff you had Giorgos th... Sweet numbers!
effin sweet, man I need to get some Phase Cooling. hehehe.
i'm with you on that buddie hehe.
the hardware is just only one part of the game...
Im guessing brass balls and knowledge are the rest?
Gotta ask this Giorgos.... How many things have you killed while benching?
@sneeky...He doesn't need the balls, just look away when you do it! lol
actually i haven`t killed anything....while benching...
just a pair of ddr1 dimms 6-7 years ago..
Even more for ya... No wonder your a overclocking Guru threw Hwbot.
Although i've only been doing thise for a couple of months. When I started overclocking and messing around with computers I never had any experience before. I just simply got on here, read a bit, and started. Luckily I haven't killed nothing yet. Some people fry stuff in their first few attempts pretty bad. :::knocks on wood:::
I'ved killed three cards... well two I know of, and the third is i don't know since it went into step-up... lol... needed to push the most out of it... lol
dude, don't worry. As long as it was for overclocking or benching purpose, i'm sure the lord will forgive you. No worries my brotha. It happens to the best of us.
I kill a lot of video cards. It turns out the G92 core doesn't really like 1.8v.
@giorgos- How does that SS do on quad cpus?
Yeah, it was benching.. or seeing what I could do with it... I loved the colors of Crysis after awhile on the 3870... I was the lab rat for the volt mod.... It didn't work first.. but, then... then died... lol... Gotta have steady hands for that sort of thing... friend didn't think a bout that or bios flash... lmao... love my brother for that!
Wile... is that card going to be your Physx only card? I mean... After seeing the Fluidmark from ya... WOW....
No. I only have 2 8800s left. One is in the AMD rig, and one is in this rig. After this one explodes, the AMD rig will probably end up with my 2900XT. lol.
hehehe. But what do you mean the colors off Crysis?
Palit... need those cards! I hope those two don't go down for ya man... I bet your 2900xt is sweet because it's from your genes, but.... Not the same man...
Half the screen was green, other was yellow. Some rocks where blue.. Vehicles where blocked tires..
WTF??? Why was that, was it due to like bad volt modding or something?
3870s apparently don't like 1.5V+ on stock coolers. lol.
I see now said the blind man . So thats what caused it to give those crazy colors?
Pencil mod with the vmod doesn't quite work right... Friend wasn't in the right state of mind while he was working up the mod... When you overclock, or do anything... FOOD is the key... I was working on putting the blood iron board in, while he did the mod and such for the thread... Well, it didn't end up quite right.. He know's his stuff... just knows he needs food and what... Don't hate the man... Even after clearing 3 drives of mine... lol..
But, 1.5 on stock cooler really didn't work quite right ether... lol
hahahaha. Yeah bro. Thats pretty high voltage. What do they come at stock?
I can't quite remember what it was... but it was Gecube 3870... TPU did a review on it.. but to lazy right now to look it up... I want to really say around 1.2... But, don't quite remember...
THats like getting my Phenom that is about 1.28v stock and going to 1.5+v on stock cooler. Haha, imagine that.
