The official Cheapaz Chips Round 1 HD5770 thread.

Recommended Posts

I'm really looking forward to this comp. I bought two 5770s already and look forward to learning from all the pros that are going to kick my ass. Last year this event was by far the most fun I had. Reminder to self: Make sure you bench with a 4k monitor so there are no screenshot issues.

I just noticed something now which isn't down in the rules but I feel like it should be, can we limit the competition to 1 card only? Just feel like a quadfire setup in this competition kinda goes against the whole ethos of it :)

Just so you know I didn't mean to suggest I would be using Crossfire (and pretty sure that's not allowed) but rather I purchased an extra one in case I blow the first one up modding it.

Oh no no don't worry, I just had that light bulb moment when I looked at the rules and saw it wasn't noted. :)

Is it just for this Cheapaz, or there will be prizes for other comps in the future too? :)

More stuff is in the pipeline, but first things first:  the paperwork needs to be completed before anything will get changed here.

This prize money is offered by the kind people Thermal Grizzly.

Just try to be the best of your cooling category.... if everybody would only bench if they were sure to win it would only be the same 3 people benching and grabbing a prize right.... it's all about having fun & sharing things...

Its not about being sure to win at all, i am pretty sure i would not stand a chance even with a temperature limit. there is some people who know perfectly there craft here,  and i am not one of them 😛 Its just that with this name i was expecting a Competition made around the idea of accessibility. (And its the first time i had adequat hardware to do more than just participate to one of them). In the end its my fault for not knowing what Cheapaz was about  ;) That being said it would be great to also have some competitions enticing for the whole HWBot community.

 

Anyway, i have posted some score for everything. But there is still an issue i had already pointed out : I cant launch Firestrike with both the latest systeminfo and hardware monitoring activated. So i have posted a firestrike graphic score with Hardware Monitoring desactivated but i dont know what is the regulation here.

 

[edit:]Oh, and while I'm at it. Would it be possible to ad my APU motherboard to the database ? (Gigabyte B450M S2H) it seem i am the only one using this thing here (work great!)

Look at the challenger divisions. Those are hardware/temperature/frequency limited depending on the division. Everyone can find one to be competitive in :)

 

Huge THANKS to Thermal Grizzly for putting up prize money!!

I know I'm limited by my card(s). I have 2 MSI Hawk's and they have a large/tall capacitor above the GPU. It's right above the memory and kills any chance of Dice or Water Cooling :( I have a set of EKWB Thero's and a Quad set of Watercool GPU-X that will not fit 😞 . I have just ordered a EKWB generic GPU cooler hoping it will fit in the space. 

Anybody else know of different water blocks that might work ??

Is Systeminfo Monitoring required to have enabled while running 3DM Firestrike? Cannot get past systeminfo scanner stopped working error in every OS if monitoring in 3DM is enabled.
