Here is my "gaming" and overclocking PC:

e7200(bought first batch released)- normally at 3.8Ghz but ran hot with my AC 64 pro
Zotac 8800GT AMP!
4x1gb OCZ DDR2 1150Mhz
WD 750gb Black HDD.

Upgrades:
Corsiar H-70 ($90, normally $115)
Galaxy GTX 470 ($250, normally $330)

Benchmarks before upgrades:

3dmark06: 13500
Windows 7:
7.0
7.1
6.9
6.9
5.9

After:

3dmark06: 19560
Vantage: 21392
Windows 7
7.1
7.2
7.5
7.5
5.9


This PC is for gaming and now I can play crysis at 1080p very high at 40fps, which is exactly why i got the GTX 470.

With crappy cooler:


New cooler:

At 4.25Ghz it maxes at 62C




Have to rerun this test at 4.25Ghz





Also just built this a family PC, mainly for email and browsing the web and organizing photoes. But I built it so it would last atleast 6+ years.

Xeon X3440 (Socket 1156 i7, business version) 2.5-3Ghz. Quad core w/ HT
Asus p7H55
G Skill 2x2gb 1333mhz DDR3 "Ripjawz"
Zotac 8800GT AMP(from gaming pc)
500gb WD blue

I am jealous of this processor, I have a better cooler coming for it but I wanted to see how it overclocked and it went to 3.6Ghz without any effort.
At stock settings it scored 15k in 3dmark06

That is one super rig for just simple "family" stuff!!! But hey if it makes the family happy, go you.

Is that an H50?

ETA: I'm a retard and thought this was one of those fancy 'show off your stuff threads'.

There's something wrong with your Vantage score. Your CPU score, specifically the physics test, is WAY higher then it should be for that processor at that speed. I mean it's 270% higher than a 6GHz 6-core Extreme Edition.

I believe PPD is on, which is physics. I think my GTX 470 may have been used for physics, im not sure I'm new to vantage.

Here's a picture of my current build. I still need to neaten up all the cables.

i7-930 @ 4.0GHz
Asus P6X58D-E
6GB OCZ DDR3 2000MHz
XFX 5850 at 850/1300
OCZ Z1000 PSU
2 Corsair F40 SSD Raid 0 for programs
2 WD Green 1TB Raid 1 for data

It's 24 hour Prime95 plus 2 hour LinX stable. I'm still trying to work out some weirdness though. I don't have any proof but something just doesn't feel right. Can't explain it better then that.


Its an H-70, I got it for $90 shipped from tigerdirect. I'm idling around 27-40C and load at 63C max at 4.25Ghz on my E7200 which hit 85+C on my shitty AC pro 64.

I'm jealous of it too!

It only cost $650 total though!

I'm at home for two more years, going to a Penn state commutor campus right now so I get to paly with it. I hate the inte l stock cooler, its hitting almost 70C with stock settigns so I ordered a thermaltake Frio.

The reason I got such an amazing CPU is that the PC its replacing is a HP P4 2.8Ghz bought in 2002. I want this PC to last as long, if nto longer, but I want it to be better at 8years old then the P4 was.

The saddest part is that the most intensive thign that PC will face is facebook games., I may have it setup to fold, as i7 CPU's are supposted to get 18K ppd.

When the Frio finally comes I'm going to try to get it to 4-4.2Ghz and plop my GTX 470 in it to see what kind of results I can get, and also see if there is a difference performance wise in games.



As for the H-70 on the E7200, local ice cream store has dry ice for $1.50/lb. I want to put the radiator in a bucket full of dry ice and go for 5Ghz! I know my chip can do it, but If I attempt it, I'm only going to do it for 10 minutes max as I dont want to ruin it.

fancy. Might just have to look in the the H70... I'm a fan of pure air cooling. don't know why but I always seem to end up back there but those are some nice temps.

I'm by no means a Futurmark expert, I just can't find any physics scores anywhere near yours. I'm curious now so hopefully I'll figure it out.

Oh, forgot to mention. I'm jealous of the green. I've always wanted to do a green rig.

ETA: Finally found some physics scores up around yours but they all seem to be unofficial results. It is because you have PhysX enabled and PPU enabled so it's actually running that CPU test off of your GPU making it an unofficial score. Ahh, makes more sense now. Good job Futuremark for choosing to support a proprietary engine

Did you buy Vantage or are you using the free edition?
