I ran 3DMark Vantage the other day with the below set-up ..

Q6600@3.5GHz.
Asus Commando P965: Republic of Gamers Motherboard.
4GB Corsair 800MHz XMS2 memory.
GTX 260 896MB - 702MHz clock core, 1404MHz Shader clock & 1214MHz memory.

I scored 12444 points in 3DMark Vantage, Vantage was ran at default settings.

In a few days after a have time to mess around finding a stable overclock with the new rig ill run vantage again and post the score.

Well i know im dragging this thread from way in the past but ive had a fiddle with some setting and done alittle overclock, I cant help feeling i could get alot higher with better cooling.

Been thinking of getting buying a Corsair H50-1 water cooler, How owns one? What are your opinions?

Anyway heres my overclock(see sig also). Its a prime95 Small FFTs stress test, My cpu voltage its a 1.1000v and i have Load-line Calibration enabled in the bios. I just adjusted the BCLK to get my overclock.

What do you think?Any input?

I don't like to completely disagree with someone in more than one thread so I'll say in a lot of cases that might be true...


Are you on the wind up again??

Anyway back to topic.

Been testing some more, Ive got a multiplier of x21 and the bus speed at 181 = 3801MHz.

Memory is now at 1448MHz.

A small FFTs Prime95 test running and a high of 71c(usually 69c but flickers to 71c every now and then) on 1.1550v.

Now willing to try to get any higher as im not willing to allow the temps to go any higher that that.

When i get a Corsair H50-1 water cooler ill try and get higher.

(back to 3.6GHz for 24/7 usage though)
