View Full Version : Does this score suck or not?

08-05-2002, 08:38 PM

8308 on a Ti500 at stock speeds with no tweaking of anything. CPU is overclocked to 1750MHz from 1400MHz, with FSB at 166MHz and all memory timings set to most relaxed possible.

Decent, or crappy? I'm guessing it's not that good, but I need to get better memory before I do anything else to my RAM. This stuff seemed to do better before I had my TEC accident..... :rolleyes:.

Anyway, if anyone's interested I also got this (http://service.madonion.com/compare?2k1=3672613) score with my previous rig. This is the with a GF2GTS 64MB.

That is my old GF3 score several months back. Nothing to write home about compared to OP's 11.3K with a GF3. ;)

No kidding :D. I'm planning on hitting 10K with this setup, but I think that my RAM is being gay, and I'll have to replace it with XMS3200 or something like that. I can always use the KingMAX on a different system :D.

Compare your system to mine. I did not use Riva Tuner with the GF3 for tuning. Something is very odd. Same board, same FSB, same drivers and you have a slightly better card. I am about 100MHz higher in CPU but that would not account for almost a 1000 point difference. It has to be your memory. Are you running it at the most agressive timings with access at 2T, ehance memory enabled and command rate of 1T?

No, I think my RAM is overheating. That's the problem. Timings are at the most relaxed they can be. I'm guessing that if I had better RAM and/or better RAM cooling, I would be in the same area as you. But I haven't overclocked the video card at all yet either. I was just running this as a test.

I'll probably try pointing a fan at my RAM and seeing if that helps, since it used to do 159Mhz max timings, and now it crashes and stuff at 166MHz.

i did this a while ago..

system was
AXP @ 1709mhz 11x155
Crucial PC2100
VisionTek GF3 @ 245/575..

Ah Knight.. maybe you can remember.. i stuck a SK6 to my GF3 :p

toying with my gf3ti200 @ max of 148 fsb because my mem blew and now im on things that hate me ;)

Jaykuai: You betcha I remember that ;). it was pretty cool how the [H] helped you save the card.

I guess the problem must be twofold:

RAM is at most relaxed timings
video card is not overclocked

Anyway, I'll try tweaking it some more in a bit.
