Hey guys! Just a general question I like to ask people while I'm gaming and stuff.

So my question is, do you overclock your components in your computer such as CPU, NorthBridge and GPU and do you have different clock settings for different applications you run? Also what is the MAX O.C. you have achieved on what processor?

Yeah Jsak - we have a few guys that overclock and know their gear.

As lucky posted - Xume is a mad OC head. Fullnutta gets his madness on too, plus a few other guys. I think we'll let them answer this question, lol.

As for me - a small OC on my GPU, like 25Mhz or some such (all thanks to zoomies encouragement) everything else at stock.

I may have OCed.


24/7 use.
I7 950 @ 4.0gig 1.4v
ati 5970 @ 900/1250 1.1v

benching
I7 @ 4.313 gig 1.45v
5970 @ 1000/1275 1.3v

This gives me a 60fps average boost over stock clocks but where
you notice the difference is in the min fps. I have no cpu/gpu game
lag at all unless I max out every setting and even then it plays
flawlessly 80% of the time.

You dont need much to game with since the release of the 2500k/2600k.
Cheaper than a 1336 chip.
Aftermarket water cooler will get you around the 4.3gig mark with ease.
Bolt on a 560, 6950 or better and that is it.

It is better to have an awsome internet connection over a ball breaking computer IMO.
Thats my excuse anyway Grin

I don't have a clock over my computer Unhappy

x-ume nice O.C respects to that. your 5970 is a good gfx card.

my specs are
CPU: amd 1090T @ 4.4 GHz for video encoding and 3.8 GHz for gaming
MB: Gigabyte 980FXA-UD7 (does alright except the MOSFET cooling is bad)
RAM: 4 gig
Graphics: 6950 (with unlocked shaders to 6970)
HDD: no SSD coz boot up times don't bother me and I'm always the first into a server anyways so i see no benefit except booting
custom water cooling kit.
I'm a bit of a nut

hey Fullnutta, was that your on TS? I found an old and battered up microphone I had lying around

Do you O.C? How much do you O.C. for gaming? Microphone

the thing is the battered up part lol, I'll just get a new headset tomorrow make it much easier
the MB codec is realtec ALC889 codec and driver version 6.0.1.6235 if that helps?

I have my 5970 watercooled but the thing that I found helped with overclocking these cards is to redo the
thermal pads and use thermal paste on either side of the pads. Only use enough thermal pad to cover each
component especially the VRM's. I found by covering the VRM's with too much crap kept the heat in.

I did have heaps of trouble OCing the cards until I did this. The thermal pads that come stock on the
cards are to big and wrap down the sides of the chips and VRM's.

On the air cooled card I put 2 x 40mm fans over the back of the GPU's to suck out the hot air which also seemed to
help.

I use MSI afterbuner.

my cards sit pretty cool for the 5970 they are on 65 in game, the hot air pisses out the back like no tomorrow hehe but ill leave the thermal pads for now cause the stock cooling is doing its job for now as clocks are stock may have to do it later when i oc it

It's the VRM's that get toasted. The GPU temps were always fine for me too.
WCing kept the GPU's at 25deg to 40 deg under load. The VRM's are the things
that heat up and cause you card to crash, freeze or show artifications.

VRM's hit temps of about 120deg and programs like MSI Kombustor will get them
to 100 degs within seconds.

Make sure that the thermal pads are making contact as you need different
thicknesses for different components. Do a dry run and see if the vrm's
and other components make an indentation in the thermal pads. You
may have to increase the thickness by doubling or tripling the pads.

Scared the crap out of me pulling apart a 5970 but after your first go it
is pretty easy.
