    Cheating is a strong word. Perhaps Gaul just doesn't know. Gaul, when you post scores for Vantage, never cover the lowest part of the GPU-Z gui. People look for that PhysX box to be un-checked. PhysX substantially enhances performance in Vantage. I've posted several examples here. You can plainly see the difference in my scores, with/without PhysX enabled.

    Hope this helped.


    EDIT:--- When I ran those benchmarks I used GPU-Z version 4.2 which did not support the GTX 460 card. Since then, I have acquired v4.4 which does provide support for the 460. I just posted the new version which is now reporting the proper information. Sorry about the inaccuracy of the original GPU-Z in the screenshots.

    good idea though, come on guys, post your max 460 clocks, im curious what the average ocs are
    900 is nice, what fanspeed and voltage?

    I see nothing wrong with version 4.2. It was accepted and verified by HWBOT for team points.

    I cannot see how a new version of GPU-Z could possibly make any difference in my scores, with the exception of the usual +/- about 200 points variance between runs. However, I see that that GPU-Z v4.4 has some added support, or compatibility for the GTX 460. Hmmm, that might be interesting. I'll download it, and make these runs again as soon as I have time, perhaps this weekend. It would be interesting to see if GPU-Z reports anything different in it's newer iteration.

    Best my KFA GTX460 1GB does is 880/4400 GPU @ 1.1v. will get some results once KFA send me a new vBIOS that hopefully sorts out the bootup / restart issues.

    I might consider one or two of those 01G-P3-1373-ER - 1GB EVGA GTX 460 SC, 3800MHz GDDR5, GPU 763MHz, ShaderClock 1526MHz, SLI would be the way to go due to the power consumption efficiency, no promises here, just keen on it.

    No, it doesn't. Vantage is rediculously biased, which is why if you want any kind of accurate score you run Vantage with PhysX set to run on the CPU.

    +1 ^ He's 100% correct. PVHK, you will find that in fact, HWBOT will not even accept your score as valid, unless they can verify that PhysX has been disabled, and it's function turned over to the CPU. I see a lot of guys getting all bent out of shape over this, and I don't understand why.

    I intentionally posted 2 runs on my machine, with, and without, PhysX enabled, just to show how skewed the score becomes when the GPU has access to run PhysX.

    Post your best run with PhysX disabled, and then you, and everyone else will recognize a valid score. Good Luck.

    I can't help but question if PhysX is actually disabled, especially because you don't show the GPU-Z primary "Graphics Card" tab GUI.

    Turning off PPU in Vantage will not completely disable PhysX which so many people believe. Prove it to yourself. Leave PPU enabled in Vantage. Now go into nVidia Control Panel and go into "Set SLI & PhysX Configuration". Now choose "CPU" from the "PhysX Settings" drop down menu. Now when you run Vantage and look at GPU-Z all the way down at the bottom, and you'll see the PhysX box un-checked. As long as that box is checked, you'll only be kidding yourself with your scores.

    Look at my screenshot posts and you'll see what I mean.

    I think PhysX is actually off in the second SS, his GPU score is very similar to what mine was A GPU-Z in a screenshot would clear any doubts up though

    Hey guys I just got my MSI GTX 460 1GB Cyclone Edition(long name) and was wondering how to test the overclocked settings stability? I know you use MSI Kombustor but what settings(res? AA?) and for how long?

    current clocks
    Voltage: I assume it's the default, since it doesn't say and won't allow me to change it
    Core Clock: 865Mhz
    Shader Clock: 1730Mhz ( glued to core clock, I can change it separately)
    memory Clock: 2201Mhz
    Fan Speed: 72%( pretty quiet for me, compared to my 4870)

    it idles at 37c but raises to about 60-65 during CSS and SC2.

    This looks good, but why doesn't it have a proper exhaust out of case?.

    Several good looking coolers, with good fans and effective heat pipes has shown up, but I'm wondering why all of them insist on dumping the hot air inside the case.

    I guess it's due to higher noise of turbine designs. I don't see how you can make a radial fan effective on low RPMs(to be quiet) and still have acceptable size.

    Great! So there's a chance it can do even higher with WC.

    Under full load via F@H. My top card is dying. Very close to breaking 100C w/ the top card. The cooling on the Zotac 1GB cards is rather poor. I need to buy waterblocks for these bad boys asap. My Gigabyte GTX460 768MB card will do the same clock easily enough as well. I just don't have room for the card until my motherboard gets back from RMA.
