Add Your Comments

Overclockers writer and Benching Team member Bobnova (HWBot profile, author profile) , will be benching sub-zero live tonight!

Tune in to Overclockers Live! at 9:15 p.m. EST / 6:15 p.m. PST (plus or minus 15 minutes) for some overclocking with dry ice (DICE). Here’s the low-down:

  • Mobo: Asus P5Q Pro
  • CPU: Celeron 420
  • RAM: Crucial Ballastix D9
  • GPU: Zotac GTX580
  • Cooling: Dry ice on the CPU, air on the GPU
  • Focus: “If the celeron turns out to go no higher on dice then air, I’ll be running an e5200 for 2d stuff of all sorts, it’s only dice run was the second dice run I ever did and I didn’t do wp1024 or spi32m, plus I had a terrible mount on the pot. I should be able to step things up a bit.”

  • Date & Time: March 3, 2011 at 9:15 p.m. EST / 6:15 p.m. PST (plus or minus 15 minutes)
    • Benching will wind down between 3:00 a.m. and 4:00 a.m EST (12:00 a.m. and 1:00 a.m. PST).

Hope you can stop by and root him on!

  1. It's cool, it happens. It was still fun to watch (I've never gotten to watch some cold benching before so it was pretty awesome for me).

    And that processor @ ~-76C was awesome.
    Eh, I was pretty much done after that really.

    Not enough mhz to get anything done in spi/pifast, not patient enough to wait half an hour for 1024, and tweaked all I could out of WP32.

    I went home :P

    Now I need to go back to the shop and collect my rig so I can put it back together and have a computer at home that isn't a netbook.

    Point wise, 2.4 globals for the pc05 (new bench, new globals, woot!), and 1.something for the wp32 (which only adds to team).

    Plus around 8-9 HW boints.
    Stream was back up 3m later, webcaster has a memory leak and my netbook only has 1gb of ram. Combined, that means a BSOD.

    :bang head Sorry, had I known it would be that short I would have stuck around.
    Snazzy background, where'd you find that? :p

    I think he paid some bum with questionable favors to have it made... That's just what I heard :shrug:
    Thanks for the show last night. How did you fair after I finally got to head out?

    I don't know how it turned out either we lost stream shortly after you left.
    Not even that, really dolk :P

    If you get a good one it's okish sorta for all the benches for HW points.

    For globals it's PC05 or forget it.

    I could take gold in every catagory and have fewer points then I got off a mid range q6600, decentish 920, or quite good e6600 (that thing gave a lot!).

    I'm after the pc05 globals, the other 2d stuff I'll run (maybe not spi32m or wp1024...) to get some hw boints if the chip will go fast enough.
