lol im not saying he started the first benchmarking thread he just started that color scheme and everything. erocker said he wanted to keep it under that name because card manu. already recognize it and look at it and whatnot.
but dont get me wrong i wouldn't mind having it under my name. : )
I've ran 3.8G stable with this Q6600 - although load temps were approaching 88C for each core, that's defi pushing the thermal limit of this proc. But if I have a steady stream of 18C air flowing directly into the case . . . :D
as to the vid, honestly, I think the head was staged - they had the capabilities at the time to accomplish that through special effects (dogs head through a backdrop, etc), and a heavily sedated dog would react that way - but there's a lot of paperwork and articles that references that scientist's work, which kinda points to it being more legit. If nothing else, things were at the least exaggerated. Although, as much as this kind of research wouldn't be tolerated today, I'm sure it played a major role in the development of machines that have allowed us to be able to perform heart transplants and surgeries, as well as other organ and limb transplants.
as to the vid - search the term "experiments in the revival of organisms" on toutube or google or otherwise. Public domain vid, it'll be everywhere.
As to hittin 4GHz, this last weekend I was house sitting for some friends, and they have a kick-ass AC system in their house, and the AC vents are in the floor. I had my rig over there for some gaming (Stacker case is open underneath and has great airflow - I had the case positioned within a couple feet of a floor vent), had their thermostats set at 21C, and after 4 hours of playing Crysis, my GPUs had maxed out at 88C (for comparison, at home here, after 1 hour they max temp at 98C) - the CPU at 3.6GHz idled in the low 30s and under load was only about 45C (compared to 45 idle / 58 load here) . . . these friends might need me again this upcoming weekend to keep an eye on the house again.
If so, I intend to take my rig with me, and I'm thinking if I placed my rig directly over a floor vent, and set the thermostats to 18C, I can keep the whole rig cool enough to hit 4G and slam some kickass benchies - if I had liquid cooling already, it'd be even better . . . hell, I might even whip my two 1950 PROs out and snag the highest Crossfire 1950 score in the 3m06 thread!
