my friends from BenchBrothers made it possible for me to play with some LN2 for 2 days. Sorry if I keep it short, will write more the other day but I have 2 days of benching and 600km driving behind me (for a new dewar which I picked up yesterday before visiting Cottbus).
Some things I do know now:
1. My Gulfi can do 6 GHZ with reasonable voltage and temps (~-120°C)
2. My RIIE has some kinda bug at -130°C and let's me wait really long after sending it to coldbug.
3. I need RIIIE badly - ROG connect FTW!
4. MIIIE and RoG-Connect just rocks - never want to miss that again in the future
5. Benching 1156 is fun for moar - just 'cuz moar Wanted to crack that 6.500s so badly and I did after 3 hours of work
6 GHZ pifast on Gulfi quickly - needs more temp and maybe other things to pass 6 GHZ wall...wouldn't run much higher whatever I tried. Had 5950 running 32m for quite some time until I freezed it into mb-cb (I call it so for the moment) another time. Eff sucked REALLY don't tell me pls
quick AM3 with card under air and no special bios - wanted to get 400k with a "solution" like that but failed - had 396k btw but freezed while screening (you know for sure...)
The BenchBrothers filled the rest of LN2 in my new dewar - next beer goes on me So today I decided NOT to test Gulftown but to have some fun with 670 ES + Asus Maximus III Extreme as I just love 1m and the hardware itself (after Cebit ). Main goal was to nail down that fermidable 6.5s which I wasn't able to crack during Cebit 2010 on stage.
1m 6560 MHZ 6.485s Win 2003 Server
Took me quite some times, almost fried the board (during CBB it froze, then it warmed up again - you know what that means ) but another run with another pot also gave me #10 2x CPU on hwbot in wprime32m (I hold the only german flag in TOP20 - think germans are not good in wprime32m haha)
To make sure I really spend the last drop of LN2 usefull I went for CPUz - short before 6.7 GHZ I ran out of LN2 and the 671X validation corrupted :p It's ok but not the best chip around - I had a lot fun last 2 days, that's what matters
PS: Now waiting for miahallen to show me a new 1m
