I love how now there is "skill" in a hardware driven hobby. I'm glad my experience gives me that extra 200mhz over that new kid who just bought a NF7-S and a JIUHB.Originally posted by boshi
I think my skill, not my wallet should determine whether I am record worthy or not.
I doubt it. Most WCPUID screenies are just that, screen shots. Though I bet if it's backed off a bit, depending on cooling, they could bench it around.Originally posted by __Maad__
Does it do 24 hours of prime95 at 3GHz ?
I'm too lazy to register on some "other" forum
nah, it's not Prime stable. my max OC screenshot is 3076. that one was just good for a screenshot..
It's been done for a while: http://www.vr-zone.com/guides/AMD/TBred/Originally posted by angrybusdriver
but... I wont be impressed until someone manages to double over a stock AMD clockspeed.
Um.... it's not a competition. He got good clocks with an xp-m and a prometia and is letting people know. If it were race and you wanted to run a go-cart that would be YOUR problem. In short... don't make things a "who's stick is bigger? contest" with no stick. I'd rather see cheap chips on good cooling than EE's and FX's as skill.Originally posted by boshi
oh, with a phase-changer, I'm not really that impressed anymore. That's basically just buying your overclock. I think my skill, not my wallet should determine whether I am record worthy or not.
Amen, It always botherss me when people say to me "oh yeah, my <insert 4 figure rig here> can beat your 1700+ @ 2ghz because I bought a pentium 4EE and a radeon9800xt (not to dis on the XT's, but I don't have the money for them)Originally posted by texuspete00

i run 1.9V all the time, and go up to 2.1V (at max) when i need to for benching.Originally posted by computerpro3
stang, do you run those volts on the vid card all the time or only for benching? If only for benching, whats a good limit for that kind of cooling (I'm trying to decide to do a copper 1u mod, intel stock heatsink/panaflo mod, or stay with the vga silencer till i finish my water setup)
I'm gonna have to agree with the original statement here. Sure, I couldn't give my dad a prommie and a bunch of parts and say "here dad, OC!", but with a mediocre amount of knowledge, "anyone" can.Originally posted by Stang Man
i'd like to see what "all" you guys can do.. can you even match what i've done on air cooling??
Saying that buying a phase change unit doesn't make oc'ing to higher speeds easier makes just as much sense as saying "but look what I can do on AIR!" when you've got a 92mm tornado blowing on your cpu. Sure it's air cooled, but your computer sounds like a jet engine. Sure, with phase change you have to deal with condensation, and it's marginally more difficult than a regular HSF setup to set-up, but it certainly does allow for higher overclocks. But like I said in my original post, respect goes out for having a fast rig no matter *how* you do it(as long as it's stable and can be/is run for long periods of time. If you use LN2 cooling, but can do it for hours at a time, more power to you )Originally posted by Jonsey
Stang, pay no mind to the "anyone can do that with phase-change" crowd. In a hobby where the luck of the draw when you buy hardware is the most important component of success, the best overclockers are the ones that give themselves the biggest advantage.
I don't understand this lame "you bought yourself an overclock with phase-change." What's worse, building yourself a phase-change unit, or buying super expensive pc-4000 ram.
