Are you thinking of buying a GT 1030?

Heh, come on Qubit, grow pair! I'm not saying to put it to 5Ghz like you said happens "easily". Just set it to 1.35V and see how high you can get with your cooling. You won't kill the chip.... don't act like a n00b when you aren't one. :)

It is actually a very dated benchmark. Because it is CPU limited in many cases, it is being dropped from OCF's review suite. Perhaps if you added AA it would help it a bit (because who doesn't run AA when they can at 1080p???????), but as you can see from my results on that 1080 in DX11, its pretty damn CPU limited with your chosen settings. I'm just wondering how far down the GPU list that goes. :)

Oh gawd, you think I've got balls. :oops: World's biggest coward here. :laugh:

Ok, I'll set the voltage to 1.35v try to get to it "soonish", but I can't promise exactly when. I appreciate your enthusiasm though. :)

And it really did get to 5GHz+, you know I wouldn't make that up. When I had it overclocked previously, it was doing 4.7GHz comfortably 24/7, but I don't know what the voltage was.

I believe you... I never had one that couldn't. And those were the easiest to overclock. Set voltage, set multi, test... failed and temps ok? raise voltage. Passed? Raise multi... rinse and repeat.

If it takes you more than 15 minutes to reach 4.8-5Ghz and run Heaven, you should never log in to an enthusiast site again and buy a damn Dell. :p

Thanks again. :)

Benchmark Scores i've got a shitload of them over 10 years of work
Thank you very much for this interesting test!

So, GTX580 is 80 % faster than GT1030 in DX11 and 100 % faster in DX9. Amazing... That is much more than i expected. This heaven benchmark is a relevant program to show which cards became and are useless for gaming. Seems there is absolutely nothing left for GTX285 to do these days, it should be sold for free. Amazing what a piece of crap GT520 is - with that low score i can bet that it would not even beat a GeForce 7600GT 256 MB GDDR3. LOL


qubit, you don't have any real games to test?

Any progress on overclocking your CPU and seeing what happens to the GPUs here Qubit?
Yes, overclock your CPU to 4.5 GHz! It's not a big deal - just smack some 1.4 V on CPU and 2.1 V on PLL, use 45 multiplier on your turbo boost, but keep your base clock default, disable all C states, thermal monitor and EIST, only keep turbo boost on. Should be easy and stable. Don't overclock your RAM or base frequency. Core i7 2700K must be overclocked. Now that Earthdog provided his Core i7 7900X OC results, it will be interesting to compare them with Core i7 2700K OC.

I know it might feel nostalgic to run a older Nvidia GFX that might got DX11 or DX12 support but if u can get a new lower-end gfx that doesn't require any power and can give u the same performance or get one that do better (shouldn't be that hard) I think the power bill depending on your gaming ofc will decrease if u go from a older 300watt card to a 75watt.

There shouldn't be a need to touch PLL voltage, nor hit 1.4V for 4.5Ghz... my worst 2700K would do 4.5GHz 1.32V... Those chips under 5GHz are really voltage + multi and go.
