  1. ahhh ok, thanks for that :) ill have a play around and see what i can do. Defs wont be able to come anywhere close to this score though
  2. Mind sharing a little info on the sli profile? ;p i found one but it barley made a difference haha.
  3. How did you get sli to work on this benchmark with the 690? when ever i enable sli it runs like ass haha
  4. Just normal solder. I mean if it cracks after a few runs i have no problem reflowing it. just curious if it will
  5. Yeah i might take it into work one day and unsolder it after eating the bit our and drill the other holes out. for more surface area. you dont think i will have problem with the solder cracking at such low temps?
  6. Hmmm i might have to give that ago. Will be a little while before i use it though. Got alot of stuff coming up soon
  7. Hey guys, thought i would post the homemade DICE / LN2 pot that i designed and made. It starts with the base, it is a solid slug of copper that is 65mm x 50.8 that i purchased for 60 odd AUD on ebay after asking the seller if they could cut a custom length. I then had a 20mm hole drilled down the center of the slug about 45mm deep and the plan was to surround it with 10mm holes the same depth but that was quickly thwarted after finding out how hard copper is to drill as you will see in the pictures there is a smaller hole becasue i snapped a drill bit off in it, in total i broke 3 drill bits trying to drill this slug out but was able to get the other bits out. The copper pipe also has an OD of 50.8mm and was around 210mm long, i lathed a lip around the edge of the slug so the pipe could slip over it and be soldered to it. I then lathed a ring off of the end of the pipe and cut one side of the ring so i could spread it around the pipe and also solder it on, this ring is for the bracket to apply mounting pressure to the whole pot. I had a friend make the mounting bracket out of 6mm aluminium for me based off a rough drawing i sent them, the slots you see cut into it are so it can accomodate different sockets, i have made it compatible with 775, 1155 and i think 1366. the pot will attach to the mainboard with the pictured backplate and another i need to aquire, threaded rod, springs and wing nuts. The only step left in the making of this is to face off the contact surface and lap it to a mirror finish. Once i have finished it i will post some results of using this with my XFX 780i board and some form of core 2 or a pentium 4
  8. If it was set to "off" would that explain the funky voltage with no current capability on my output? Will have a look at setting the VID tommorrow
  9. Hey guys. A little bit ago now i cut the vrm of a DCUII 780 and verified it had no shorts and since then i have been unable to get it to power up. I have supplied the chip with 3.3 volts for VCC, EN, and PSI yet i cannot get it to output properly. It will output 3 oddvolts on the main vrm (which aint right) but has no current capability. An 8 ohm load will drop it to basically nothing. The main VC is an ASP 1212, linked below. Is there a sense line or another enable line somewhere i need to hit with 3.3 volts? I have attached a picture of what i have so far. https://www.infineon.com/dgdl/pb-asp1212.pdf?fileId=5546d462533600a40153567f4b2128a4
  10. TBH when i seen your last score i thought i'd never be able to top that haha. Im curious as to how much i have left in this 580. I wish my lightning was working but unfortunatley its dead, it can't even complete a benchmark anymore the moment it goes from a 3d load to desktop it artifacts and crashes the system.
  11. OMG this was it. I didnt even think to search for 3dmark hanging. The one that Mr.Scott posted was the only one i was able to find on some sketchy af ftp server XD but it didnt work. This one did, thank you so much
  12. Hey guys, does anyone know how to get 3dmark 99 working on windows xp? I have tried the compatability to windows 98/me, it does not launch but there is an active process for it. I have looked around alot of forums and people are talking about how this version does not work on XP but there is a fix to download but all of the links are now dead. i possibly found the fix but after applying said "fix" when trying to start 3d mark it says to use a 3d accelerator that is capable of using textures, this is while i have a hd 3870 in the system and latest drivers for xp. I havent tested another card yet as its 3:15 am and im going to bed. I want to run the benchmark on XP as i see everyone else uses it. Any help would be greatly appreciated
