Default 12pipe 6800GS's hitting 14k in 3dmark 2k5!

WHEN YOU WANT '7800GTX 512MEG' PERFORMANCE, BUT DON'T HAVE $800 OR THE PATENICE TO WAIT TO GET ONE OR ONLY HAVE $400-500 HERES YOUR RELEIF

Today I put together my results with my two XFX 6800GS cards.
These cards come clocked at 485/1100 defualt and today I will show that on just normal air cooling you can take these cards past 650/1400.

All testing was done using the Zalman Fatality Coolers and some extra voltage in combo with some cool florida air '65f'.

I just took these 12pipe cards to a new level!!!

A few rig pic's








1st Some Single Card runs.




2nd Some SLI runs.





The Max 3dmark scores I have hit so far still on the same Zalman air coolers they are the fastest cheapest scores in 2k3 and 2k5 to date IMO.

so i did a bios volt mod to 1.4 instead of 1.38, do you think that should be safe, some guy said 1v increase would kill your card in 1/2 a year so .02 should be nothing to worry about

wheres your gpu volts on that picture???

if I got 8k + id **** myself as my 6k score plays all my games at max settings heheh, what gpu volts r u uisng, hopefully i can duplicate the results with my x2 hehe


also i think ill leave the stock ram sink on there it looks cool and i think it works with those fabric cooling pads lol


whats your 3d mark with cpu test off?

Those runs are with only the first 3 tests, lol as thats all you need for the score the other tests are just for system info and take longer to run.

The CPU tests have no bearing on the benchmark result. The first three GPU tests are used to calculate the score. The CPU tests are just painful to watch. Most just hit escape to skip that component. So, they are valid benchmark runs even without the two CPU tests.

Edit: Jason submitted his answer a few seconds before. Ditto.

I live in the world of overclocking. The cards we voltage mod we add better cooling too and I see more stock cards die from the manuf. POS cooling than I do voltage modded upgraded cooling cards.

I ran 2 7800gtx 256meg at 1.75v on air cooling '1.5v default' for 3 months never had a hickup.
