Again this is not a competition seen some very fast stuff here but how stable is it all?
We all know the world records are on unstable liquid nitrogen pc's, not the same pc's we log on to here with. I wanted fast and stable thats what I have now thanks to what I see on here. The 380.00 I spent on ebay for my second card was far cheaper than the 499.00 for a 2900xt. I know a quad core will jump me up more water cooling more tec more liquid nitrogen the most.
So how many of you run your stuff at the posted speeds 24/7? thats the real question :D
BTW my case sounds like a central a/c unit but its stable :twitch:
Obviously I don't run my X1900GT at my 722/819 24/7! Only when I game. However I don't believe that you should just put the highest CPU speed you ever got in a suicide run either. Instead do what trt740 does in his sys specs, or just post your regular CPU speeds. I run 24/7 on my specs apart from the graphics as there's no need in having the latter overclocked for 2D work.

My 2900 xt will run 870/1190 24/7 it is onehundred percent stable and one more mghz and it is not. My q6600 will run 100 percent stable at 3.8ghz on air at 1.475v and at 3.9ghz at 1.60v (I won't and don't run it this way) I do run it at 3.627ghz or 3.8ghz depends how I feel.

I'm not surprised the 8800 gtx/8800 gtx Ultra a 500 to 700 dollars card. It better be as fast as a 2900 xt or faster for that matter. Plus I owned one
I know but ever since about cat 7.7 the 2900XT's were beating them, there was a 2900XT top of the single card rankings for quite a while.....then this GTX came along :eek:

Point I was making is lately its all about who is faster ATI or Nvidia, I say if its fast and stable is all that matters. And why wont my 680i go faster than 3350 mhz:laugh:

I think on air I could hit 14500 but that is it that scores with my card, bus, chip and PCI express slot overclocked. I was able to OC my PCI express up to 130 Mghz which made my card take off. If I had water for sure atleast 14800 to 15000.

just wait till its cold its the same as water last winter when I was on air I got my cores down to 19c with 1.63v and card was at 14c on air but the thing that sucks your freezing your ass but I put it by the window with the side off and covered around the case and had the heat on in the house so it wasnt to bad but thats what you can do if you dont want to go to water

its like 39f outside right now what about where you live ?

it's nice to see everyone ignored my score. i should be 3rd in the sli catagory if my readings are correct.
:laugh: Don't worry it's a big thread everyone gets missed out once or twice. Just make sure you've got CPU-Z screenshot and Orb link in case that was the reason.

Everyone? or the thread updater......I have just gone back 4 or 5 pages and didnt see your post, re-post it here if it's not been updated, the thread/score updater maybe has not always got the time to go back over numerous posts/pages to check if he has missed something, if you re-post it here chances are he will catch it.

im installing 2x150gig raptors tonight... then i will post the new score.

AND... NO i cannot get any more out of this quad.... it's a piece of sh*t.... i've tried it on 4 different boards and it ABSOLUTELY WILL NOT POST after 3ghz, and yes, i have tried everything. it's NOT a b3, its a G0 SLACR. im waiting for my rma from intel.... i'll have to go back to the trusty e6700 for a bit.

Can you get any more out of that Quad, I think if you managed to overclock that even to just 3.2 or 3.4Gig you would see a huge increase in score because even for a quad, with 2 of those monsters you are going to be CPU bottlenecked.

NO i cannot get any more out of this quad.... it's a piece of sh*t.... i've tried it on 4 different boards and it ABSOLUTELY WILL NOT POST after 3ghz, and yes, i have tried everything. it's NOT a b3, its a G0 SLACR. im waiting for my rma from intel.... i'll have to go back to the trusty e6700 for a bit.

Did you try a P35 board, they do tend to be better with Quads.

i've tried it on my 680i striker extreme, an evga 680i board, p5k p35 board, and a p965 board.
i've tried raising voltages, dropping the multiplier, liked/unlinked the ram, underclocked the ram, different ram, different os's. nothing works!!! ive tried....9x333, 8x375,7x428... all boot and run fine...but you go any higher and it wont post at all.
