  1. Hey guys,just received my new graphics card and thought it would be nice to post some benchmarking scores from my daily pc. Some words about the card: The card itself is an option made from Msi.It uses the dual slot cooler called Twin Frozr. The custom pcb and the aftermarket cooler are there for anything a user can require from the card. But anyway you are not here to read specifications and long texts. I assume you are here to see the results of the card in combination of my 3770K.Right? So just for the record what I used for the review: Hardware: Intel i7 3770K Evga Z77 FTW Avexir 4x4Gb 2400MhzCl10 ThermalTake ToughtPower Xt 1350W Dimastech Easy White Software: OS:Windows7 64bit Drivers:Nvidia 301.42 First lets check what card can do on stock settings: 3DMark03: 3DMark Vantage: 3DMark11: Now I overclocked the card at 1150mhz which has as a result 1315mhz~ due to the Boost technology. I found out the Gpux max frequency but for memory had to do more tests because it could run stable at 1800Mhz without additional voltage needed! 3DMark Vantage Overclocked: 3DMark 11 Overclocked: Final Words: The performance of this card is great but what surprised me was the memory overclocking part. Have tested a 660Ti before(with the same type of memory chips I think) and didnt manage to pass 1650-1675mhz. As for the cooling it kept the core under 61C on stock settings and auto fan speed and under 57C while overclocked on 100% fan speed. Thanks for reading
  2. I got inspired from Hipro5. Still remember when I bought a local magazine to get some advices to build my first pc. Then I saw George's scores with blacko7 I will never sell his gpu pot

    The Fail

    haha maybe I beet you Burnt a 8800gt by applying As5 on vrm. Killed a P55a ud5 when soldering.(60watt solder -ouch-). The good 480gtx lightning of Hipro.(was his fault but anyway).Its core got broken from the pot. And killed a 4870 aa month ago. I think I have more,will add soon.
  4. thanks bro yeah you are right.Actually I sent all of my eraser.I think too that I have to make it thicker and add more around the first pci express. Also armaflex is easier to use than vaseline.Its a sticker actually. +its easy removable.
  5. Hey,this is my guide for insulating a motherboard. I thought it would be a nice idea to make one for new users. The ginny pig will be my favourite Evga Z77 Ftw What you will need to insulate a motherboard: Plastik Spray for PCBs.I am using the following: http://www.conrad-uk.com/medias/global/ce/8000_8999/8200/8200/8205/820560_BB_00_FB.EPS_400.jpg Some packs of "Art Eraser" (around 8 packets): http://zindy-zone.dk/images/drawings/tutorial/materials/art_eraser.jpg Insulation Tape: http://www.tapes-direct.co.uk/images/s026.jpg and Vaseline: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/d/d5/Vaseline.jpg/220px-Vaseline.jpg So lets start: Firstly,we have to remove all the stickers.To do that,an easy way is to increase the temperature with a hairdryer and remove them. After cleaning the motherboard and removing the stickers we can move on insulating it. Step 1a:Use a swab to spread it all over the cpu's area.Try not to come n touch with socket's pins,fan connectors,cpu power connectors,etc. here is the result: Now its become glossy lets move on to "Step 1b" Step 1b: and do the same on the backside of the motherboard: Step 2: Fron tside Now lets use the eraser: Make small pieces of it and starting insulating the are around the cpu and pci express: Right before we end with the cpu area: ***Good tip to know.I always use insulation tape to keep the cpu in possition.In that way we are sure that eraser will not damage socket's pins!!! Cpu's Socket area completed: Step 3: Front side Move on and insulate the pci express area. Do what you did for the cpu area.Be careful again with pci express pins. As you can see I am using insulation tape around the pci express in order to prevent vaseline(I use vaseline when insulating a graphics card)come in touch with eraser.That will make the eraser to melt and have a horrible result. Step 4: Back side Here I use insulation tape for the backplate as it gets really cold. Then I fill it with eraser and cover the eraser with insulation tape,in order to prevent ot getting in touch with the vaseline. Step 5: Vaseline Spread vaseline on the back side of the motherboard.I have not done this on the Ftw as I still using it as my 24/7 system,will add photos soon. Additional Tips and tricks: 1)Use armaflex tape instead of vaseline for the backside of the motherboard. 2)Use paper in order to create an additional level of insulation around the pci express area annnnnnddd third and most important enjoy your session Any possible mistakes will be corrected as soon as possible! Thanks, Stavros PS. forgot to mention that removing the socket will make your job easier!
  6. Splave's method: 45x106@1.25v 4c/8t run 2x Spi32m now will test for 5ghz 100x50 4c/8t @1.285v spi32m stable
  7. just for the record it cannot boot @5ghz 2c/2t with 1.5vcore
  8. just picked my new 3700k batch:3229B896 lets find out what voltage is needed for 5Ghz edit: its totally crap what can I do now?will buy a Malay
  9. ok sorry just saw somebody who was selling a pot and thought to make the trhead btw ηρέμισε
  10. @Staff If I cannot post a Sale thread please delete it FS 3x2gb sticks in warranty from Corsair. One stick is dead(received it dead from Corsair's Rma time ago). So I sell two sticks.Ofcourse I will give the dead one for future Rma. The sticks can do 2400mhz @8/8/8 and 2375mhz 8/8/7 on air. Send me your offer via pm. Thanks Please delete this
  11. yeah forgot to check it,just didnt see it anywhere and got confused. anyway,do u have any ideas for these? just looked the thread,the results are not good
  12. Any idea which batch from the last batches seems to be good?
  13. hahaha ok btw ofcourse all Eist,C,etc. are disabled also will the battery leave marks?
  14. what I used: 1.65vcore on wprime.5 tries 1.60vcore 2v pll and 1.3vccio Intel burn test and prime 3x times on stock heatsink and now without cooler au 4.5g let it boot the shutdown after while.Turned it on again,shutdown after while again. did this about 10+TIMES AND STILL WORKING Ps. I play with cpu's contacts with a t-shirt to create static electr. but still alive
  15. haha lol I am trying to kill one but after many tries its still ok damn
  16. mine 3226B991 suckZZZ 5ghz 4c/8t 1.4v Spi 32m :@ wish I have a 6.6 6.7 cpu
