    I'll believe that when I see it :rolleyes:

    I have actually heard of this, but it was mostly with a revision of prime 95 causing errors, or certain class of CPU's not liking one program like Prime95 or another. Try as many different stability tests and see what it looks like overall. If it's stable enough for you, then it's good to go.

    Ok sounds good. I downloaded OCCT, ill also download those three and see what kind of results i get. If i get errors with the others then i will prob end up sending the cpu back. If not then all is well! thanks guys.

    I can't believe I forgot OCCT. That's one of the best stress tests of which I use frequently :p good eye man, good eye.

    bit more 3d testing, CPU still as my previous runs at 3.6 GHz card up from 650 core to 700

    [​IMG]

    now card up to 740 core. Tried 750 but it crashed so I backed it down to this, CPU still 3.6 Ghz

    [​IMG]

    card at 740, but CPU up to 4.2 GHz

    nope, the ati's and this one were/are both on stock cooling.

    I had a run over 25k with this setup already, it's a few pages back, I think it's possible, but it'll take more tweaking than it did with the 4870's

    Definitely possibly. I've gotten 26k with my 4870x2 at default clocks with my 920 @ 4.2. :rockout:

    i'll post the results soon, I did though. Just an observation, it took a higher CPU clock to get a better score, however the 4870's were clocked 30mhz higher per core, so I think clock for clock, the 9800gx2 should still outperform it if I was to lower the clock on the CPU to the same as the run on the 4870's

    Ok here we go, the best 3dmark 06 run of the day, wprime, and super pi. I was lazy and didn't feel like restarting to disable HT on the super pi run, so still a personal best, but could have been lot better. I'll redo it without HT another time, maybe later today :D

    26k+ is very possible with a couple 4870s or a 4870x2 as in my case.

    not badly, but still not too great. Give it a shot. Older nV cards seem to do better with 06.

    I would like to keep the intel/nvidia thing going, my last ati card was really bad in game paired with this setup. I can always get an ati card for my other rig :)

    I meant to say with the GX9800, not the HD4870 CF (he already did it 26k run with it), but he just did a 26k run with GX9800, lol.

    Didn't expect a run at 4.5GHz! Nice :toast:!

    I think it's just there isn't enough CPU power to push the "newer" cards to its limit.
