Huh. Well it won't let me run AWDflash.. It says it's incompatible with Vista 64.. Now what? I can't flash the bios without that.

 
VISTA?!?!  GET RID OF IT!!!
Gents, I am checking in for an evening of benching.  I get the night watch so I will be up all evening probably way into the early hours. 
Red light is too much voltage.  the tests lock up and the screen freezes when not enough voltage. 



Hehehehe. Waiting for the 47k!

Dude, wait nothing!!  I went from a 44,007K, to a 46.3K with win 7.

My stock SLI score with Vista was about 20K, same stock settings 30K.  did I mention STOCK score?  10,000 point increase just with the OS.  DITCH VISTA!   I still got a few points to go for that 47K, but lord knows I am not giving up.

Playing around with lots of RAM combos.  the 800/link/1200 test finally got 45K.  But not on 1188mV.

I really, REALLY want to go to Win 7. Not sure if I should get a 60GB SSD or a 1Tb Caviar black though..

get both if you don't already have a good side drive.

nope. good idea.
1: ssd's boot 10 times faster than regular drives. (when we have to reboot 50 times or more in a day)
2: regular drive for store of files and images..
3: as nate said..ditch vista anything and move to windows 7
4: use win 7 backup to image your drive after factory install + vantage/06/wprime/prime95/linx/cpuz/gpuz/eleet/percision/superpi/real temp/core temp/volt tuner

I bought SSD, didn't really help.  Still haven't topped my 46.3K score even with same settings.  I would get the SSD just because how much faster all programs load.  But with whatever you choose for a benching drive, make a small 5 gig partition, and put all executable files such as drivers, futuremark, precision, volt tuner *ahem* patches.

not sure who said it helped with benching or gaming, but it will load them hella faster (and we all know how long jane nash takes to load--haha).(which it doesn't) it's only to load programs and os faster. load and move files around faster and do reinstalls or re images faster.

I might just go with a VelociRaptor or a Caviar black.. SSDs are so expensive for so little space.

your not paying so much for the space as you are the speed.

the speed they run at makes you wish all your drives we're that fast. you would need to test one out first to really understand....but now the prices are jumping up. my vertex cost me 324 bucks last year...they now cost 550 bucks. and they are better than most of the intel drives do to writing speeds. intels read hella fast, but we're writing far slower. (speculation now, they may have caught up and i haven't check lately)

and you would just use it as your os drive and use your 1 tb drive as your storage...(suggestions only)

I have been staring at my COD MW2 disc for quite a while.  I am afraid that as soon as I install it, I will stop benching for a while

How would that drive be for Win7+select programs? I'd rather have a 60Gb but they're hella pricey. Example: http://www.newegg.com/Pro...x?Item=N82E16820227461


And Nate, you'll love that game.

You ever have one of those days where your GPU scores were well into the 42K's, but your CPU scores were barely over 61K?  45.7K's all day today.  CPU score SUCKING.

How long would you be willing to hold it for me? I may not be able to get it until mid-January.

thats the drive I use.  It was about 150ish.  Still hasn't set me any personal records. 

I may have to install the game tonight.  After I try some ram timings, I will prolly call it quits for the evening.

no fair!  I am on my spare computer, but why the hell would I install it on a computer with a 9800GT?

You are selling your 295's?!  You are giving up on 47K's?!?  so what did u decide to buy as replacements?

A Fermi will defiantly be in my future.  I just don't want to buy the top card, and then it be out of date when they release a better card. 

I already set some cash aside for it.  I will also make a waterblock for it.  Its half the fun. 

But I was referring to making one for the CPU.

we did that with the 295's...lol
and 4 5870s are now trying to scream past us...then here comes the 5970 which is already at the top of the single card list...all without a water block. gpu scores are about 28,000 or 3 to 4 fps faster than the 295's with water block...

im deff getting the fermi, but i also want to experiment with ati again. so im going to roll both cards next year.
