Add Your Comments

Overclockers writer and Benching Team member hokiealumnus (HWBot profileauthor profile) , will be benching sub-zero live tonight! (Preformatted, sorry; I don’t have a habit of talking in third-person.)

Tune in to Overclockers Live! at 8:00 p.m. EST (plus or minus 15 minutes) for some overclocking with dry ice (DICE). Here’s the low-down:

  • Mobo: EVGA P55 FTW
  • CPU: Intel i7 870
  • RAM: 2 x 2GB G.Skill Pi DDR3-2400, 9-11-9-28
  • GPU: MSI X1550 (to have something on screen – 3D is best benched on Sandy Bridge or a Gulftown chip)
  • Cooling: Dry ice on the CPU
  • Focus: Anything 2D – trying to tie/beat DICE results on the bot.
  • Click here to watch on Overclockers Live!
  • Date & Time: April 23, 2011, around 8:00 p.m. EST (potentially earlier; will update if that’s the case)
    • Benching will wind down whenever the DICE runs out, probably about four hours from when it begins.

I was preparing the hardware last night, so there should be little (if any) prep required this evening. Hope you can stop by and say hi!

    3d01 globals incoming!

    http://hwbot.org/community/submission/2160086_hokiealumnus_3dmark2001_se_geforce_gtx_580_111351_marks?new=true

    7.8 global, .01 hardware (though almost in the top 100!)

    EDIT - That's all I have to show for nine hours. I reiterate the fact that EVGA has angered me greatly tonight. G'night.


    I'm looking through the details, and I'm like ... these FPS suck. My 5850 can do better than all of these... and then I got to Nature. :rofl:
    Thats what you get for benching p55 :p

    nice! I am glad you got something out of the night. I had a fun time hanging in the stream :)

    I modded it trying to defeat a cold bug. See: http://kingpincooling.com/forum/showthread.php?t=361

    Unfortunately it just plain didn't work. Same problems as before - b6 POST code continuously with any sort of voltage applied to CPU. Of course, without the ability to give any voltage, you have zero ability overclocking, so that was that.

    Now I'm benching sandy bridge at 5.4 ghz with a newly flashed GTX580. :)
    So why exactly was it a fail? I know you volt modded it, but not sure why. Also everytime I walked in (fam over all night) you were in the bios or messing with the board. Didn't see any actual benching. So what happened? Did you use all the dice? I know I buy 12 lbs and use it for a few hours a day, then again I'm benching a notebook on dice, and only a few hours a day due to time constraints.
