hers a couple runs with a low oc and 4GHZ i7
you need to push the show system specs button to the right
looks very nice bro, but i think you can push those cards more
It work now?
Ya all my stuff is stock but o well it works good on all games right now so
guessing you have a E8500 then?
ya sry i just did a basic description, ill make it more exact after.
Cool CD, what cpu are you going to use? I wonder how it compares to the 5970
550BE@4ghz quad same one thats in the phenom II thread working out what bench to run etc.
Wanna have pissn match lol ? Hey what Science mark score should be good for my spec's?
sure why the hell not
super pi for you should be around 14.750sec
benchies for us
super pi 1m
I edit the last post b4 you seen it...
Cool but no go on pcmark05.... Im on Vista...
01 never even heard of it lol... lets just go with Science mark and Mark06 and Vantage k?
you call the clocks on the cpu.... gpu, hmmm lets just set it to whatever sound ok?
mmmmh a battle then
You too DON lol more the merrier.... mabey we need to start a new thread for this?
wouldnt be fair, unless i take HT off
what speeds are we going for? i can only do 3.8 on this shitty EVGA board
maybe i'll join the battle tomorrow.
i dont mind you guys posting results here, but you better make a new thread, kind like CP VS JR?
4 cores 4 threads and 4+GHz my friend teehee just kiddn but hey run what ya bring bro,,, and sorry to hear about the new mobo Don
well CP told me to set some voltages in BIOS, imma head off to that now and see what i can get from it
but sure, 4cores without all the fun
so one last call for the evga board,
Don and CD go to the new thread for the stand off
2x5850's in Xfire now. 4870s are gone. everything else is the same.no rush to update just felt like proclaiming !!
you lucky sob
i will be selling my 2x5770s + i have already ordered a 5850, and another will join in a few months
dont be a ^#@% and just go for twin 5870's bro, don't waste your time and money
lol why he can just flash to the 5870 bios if its a reference card and only be 3-5% slower overclock further hes set and at $200 bones cheaper all about maximizing performance at the lowest cost possible
i WOULD ! if i lived in the US
a 5870 costs around 600$ here, and a 5850 is around 400$
+ 2x 5870s is only for people who has a 2560x1600 res screen imo
+ i dont have unlimited funds even though it would be fun
so now you know why bro
bah dont worry about it Don i finally got my cards flashed to unlocked bios stock volts i hit 870 core 1150 memory on both except for crysis where im cpu limited out the ass i saw a nice big ol chunk tomorrow ill run a few benchs between stock and overclocked ie 725/1000 vs 850/1150 and you can compare it to 5870 results im fairly certain clock to clock the 5870 isnt that much faster and i know the asus bios for the 5870 can be flashed onto the reference 5850s automatically setting voltage higher and base clocks at 850/1200 and u can hit even higher usually 950 range and you dont need afterburner to do it so its win win in a sense
seems about 3-5% difference clock to clock
so for Don he can save $400 bucks and with some atiflash skills can easily achieve the same performance so all i can say is go for it man and good luck
etc 1 fps difference between the cards when there clocks are the same
also in some tests the 5850 clocked at 5870 speeds is faster then the 5870 at stock so clock comparison seems to sway back in forth
pay attention to the green scores thats the 5850 at 5870 clocks
Just played crysis, saw no lower than 42 FPS
sounds interesting, but im not trying to start any sort of fight here, just wanted to point out why i didnt go for the 5870s, i might get dual 5890s when they come, but idk, or maybe when the 5990 comes, but, yeah
mine will be this one
but i dont know if i can raise the voltage with this one? if not i will return it within the 14 days and get my money back and buy another
it looks nice, + i have good experience with sapphire cards and their coolers, so i went for it, + they have open box/demo deals on the 5850s sometimes for like 280$ which is CHEAP in shitty denmark, then i might grab one of those,
so yeah 200$ per cards is alot to me, + i got a ssd so no more fun for me this month
i told you so they perform VERY well those little fuckers
not sure reference cards tend to keep the batmobile cooler and it performs just fine at 870/1150 my fan never becomes audible while gaming and the cards have yet to break 75'c when gaming and thats in a hot room.
id say google your gpu and see what comes up in terms of overclocking
and im not starting anything either man just i dont think the 5870 makes sense were talking clock for clock only 1-5% difference and both gpus are the same so they can handle the same volts so a 5850's core should go just as far as a 5870 if your willing to take it there and in that sense here in the usa $100 price difference isnt worth it and on your end at $200 difference per card its REALLY not worth it
