@Hondacity: Great work so far in this month's competition! :up:

Hondacity
02-28-2012, 03:13 PM
I wish my work finishes early today. lol yesterday I got home @ 1am(worked 7am-12am) and sorta tweaked that via cpu and got the updated score. slept @ 3am, woke up @ 6am and drove 1hr to get some parts for my work. I haven't had lunch yet and its already 4pm. Wish I had a cat to overclock for me lol.

Thanks capt. stage 4 is cpu limited, no more bclk past 234mhz. stage3 should be fun though

Don_Dan
02-28-2012, 04:21 PM
I don't think a cat is suitable for that, they provide good benching karma but they're very limited in their overclocking capabilities. Actually I thought about training monkeys for CPU and memory pretesting. Are you in for one too? :rofl:

And get some rest buddy! ;)

@MTP04 thanks man, nice to see you back
@Zen Thanks bro, easy pickings with right hardware lol

ZenEffect
03-03-2012, 09:26 AM
now what are you going to do with that asrock? little htpc action?

Hondacity
03-03-2012, 09:52 AM
prolly finish benching the 8benches then give it away.

it just needs a ddr3 stick and a psu,

tRCD of 4 makes it amazingly responsive but i haven't tried firefox on it.

ZenEffect
03-03-2012, 10:20 AM
man, id just turn it into a cheap-o youtube/netflix box and keep it. hookup an ir sensor + remote and you wont have to get up off the couch.

Hondacity

I am thinking of picking up a 7770 for this comp, not sure though, what do you think?

Hondacity
03-22-2012, 09:42 PM
good choice, the 78xx series is way too overpriced. http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/MSI/HD_7770_OC/images/back_full.jpg

I'll double check the mounting. I have a not too used gpu pot perfect for dice. its no fatty but it should work nonetheless.

I can't see the controller too well. you got ym? skype?

Ill be running the 7970.

no ym or skype, yes I'm lame.

I am going to order the card this weekend, not sure of the controller, but I figure it is a good card to try cold for a first timer:)

dice is readily available locally:up:

Hondacity
03-23-2012, 05:31 AM
Crap gpu pot won't fit. The chokes and caps will hit it. I'll pm u tonight

I was thinking about getting a HD7770, but there are no MSI branded ones in retail in Poland. That and the fact I'd have to solder it to oblivion, killing resale value...

Hondacity
03-23-2012, 08:59 AM
Yeah the controller doesn't look like it supports i2c. A simple vmod should suffice though

G.Foyle
03-23-2012, 09:03 AM
Regular feedback vmods are easily reversible, I was thinking of resoldering caps and chokes to the backside :P

Hondacity
03-23-2012, 09:24 AM
Too crazy lol I think on air 1300 is doable. Vmod +dice maybe 1550mhz
+caps maybe 1650mhz :D

so I posted an air run for the 7770 for this months comp, but I am stuck at 1200/1250 in AB and curious what is needed to go higher. If I flash to a bios other than an MSI, will my submission be considered valid?

also I checked out Zen's heaven tweaks and most were for Nvidia cards, any tweaks besides the tessellation tweak in CCC for ATI?

Hondacity
04-03-2012, 10:45 PM
which model of 7770 did you get?

l0ud_sil3nc3

Is it possible to mesh bioses with RBE? I thought you could do something with it where you could inject the clock limits from one bios to another.

Hondacity
04-04-2012, 10:14 AM
Clock limits were from afterburner.

l0ud_sil3nc3

Clock limits were from afterburner.


bingo, hit the nail on the head, now to find out how to get the memory clocked higher. . .

it actually seems like this might be a decent sample, almost 1300/1465 on air, now I just need to learn how to tweak heaven properly so efficiency isn't bad:D

Hondacity
04-04-2012, 12:17 PM
heaven scores from djsub were good coz of the memory speed. also pm zenEffect for the tweaks. he's tested the heaven benchmark like no other lol

hey G address please..and measure the hole spacing. im packing a few items here for some guys.

Are you ready for some memory overclocking? (http://hwbot.org/competition/gskill_cup/)

Hondacity
05-01-2012, 10:49 PM
End of the road for me. I was so busy I didn't realize it was the end of the 8800 competition. Anyways no more comps for me. I heard a new xtreme bencher from Team.XS with 2 dewars and an Inflection pot is going hard on Ivy :D
