P10000 3D MARK11, OCed Budget X-79 $1500 build

Recommended Posts

How about just $1500 build? You could build a $500 system and it would be faster than the supposed Xbox 720 which is rumored to only have a HD 6670 in it.

 

You know that your $1500 build will be outdated by this fall anyhow, right? No custom PC lasts for 8-10 years without sufficient upgrades.

 

Of course, I agree. But my old Pentium D duel core with 2MB of cache has played almost every game on may with video card updates. 2006-2012 is eight years this processor has been able to play almost every game on med-ultra graphics. BF3 was the first game that did not run at a sufficient frame rate. Shogun 2 was playable though and has higher system minimum Ram requirements!

 

I plan this time around to upgrade when DDR4 peaks sales so I get high end 2400MHZ 64GB and IVY-BRIDGE EXTREME 8 CORE or better around 2015-2017.

 

DDR4 will not be much faster and may not be quad channel with the first adaptations.

 

The Syncmaster native 3D is like nothing I have experienced before. The 2D-3D up-convert is kinda bad compared to real 3D signals. The darkness of 3D makes contrast less so is not recommended for MLG type play styles.

THe Powerstream LIR2025 batteries are not staying on longer then 10secs or so they have 3.6V and the regular CR2025 says 3V. LIR2025 has40mAh vs the non-rechargeable CR2025's 100+mAhs. The CR2025 seems a bit thicker as well. I thought it was a possibility that the sync was going out due to the batter connection being more loosely fit. But I hope that these batteries were not a waste =(. Nvidia at least includes rechargeable 3d glasses out of the box.

 

Supposedly the CR2025s get 50hrs of 3D before drained. I was hoping that these LIR2025s would last about 10hrs per charge due to the lower mAhs.

This screens 2D looks so good that my GF says that it almost seems 3D in certain games like Spore as it is in TriDef mode using duel DVI from 5750. When I get displayport hooked up I expect the extra millions of colors will even make the 2D and 3D better looking.

A whole months wait for that i7-3820. :ouch:

 

The motherboard is already in the case with 1 stick of RAM for testing.

 

Bluray and SSD were put in but not hooked up.

 

I may test the mobo with my 4770 I have that overheats because the fan is worn out. Just so I don't ruin this $450 GPU if the other components violently fail at 1st power on.

Bro, Ivy Bridge-E comes out this year.. By 2015-2017 will be seeing 12-16 core CPU's probably. LGA2011 is def. gonna be phased before 2014 probably so don't get your hopes up lmao.

I agree. By 2015 I am hoping we will 6 cores as the standard CPU and 4 cores as the lower end HTPC stuff. We will probably be seeing a 73 trillion core CPU out of AMD and an 8- maybe 10 cores CPU out of intel.

I agree but the used higher end IBe will be lower costing after a few years of them being out.

 

It is going to be 3 more weeks or so before I get the CPU.

 

Benchmarks, pics, and a video or 2 should be on the way as well.

 

AMD is not going to make CPUs just APUs and GPUs.

 

x58 came out 2008 and the 990x still beats the i7-3820 and is similar even with the 6 core 3930K. 4 years have gone by and basically the 990x @$1000 is almost as good as a 3930k @$600. So for a little more then half the price with similar performance but 4 years late.

 

Unreal 4 engine uses 2.5TFlops which is under the 2.9TFlops of a 7950. So many next gen games for the next eight years of console ports will use this engine. Therefor I believe that a 2500k and up are good to go as far as gaming for the next 8 years because the PCIe 3.0 doesn't limit the 2.5TFlops of performance.

 

I have to put up with this old 2MB 775 for a few more weeks. :glare:

Bought a 130CFM fan to blow straight at the GPU fan from the side. Only when benching will I run it at 3000 RPM , normally will run 1800-2200 as it is a lot quieter. My goal is to get more air going into the case as their was only one front fan sucking air in vs 4 total fans blowing out including the GPU. Hope I can get to those 1300/7000Mhz speeds lol. I am kinda scared of overvolting though. Now I just got to get a dust filter for this thing , or pantyhose. Who has an opinion on what should I use? Does hardware stores have fine metal mesh filters that will catch dust effectively. I need a 200x300mm filter for the side of the case in which most air will be flowing in.

3820 5GHz OC

 

3820 is best gaming processor $10 cheaper then the 2600k currently on newegg.

 

3820 beat 3930k in gaming performance see link above.

 

"In the Gaming 1 suite the 3930K consumed 24 percent more power, but with 6 percent less performance."

 

With it being rumored that Xbox720 will have a Trinity APU in duel graphics with a 6670 most games being console ports will be written on 4 threads. 8 threads with hyper threading can handle fraps and skype/vent at the same time no problem during the next generation of games.

Getting CPU finally on Tuesday. Built a foam shroud mounted to that top of the side fan that seals air from going out of the side between the heat-sink and edge of video card. This is going to focus the top arc of the fans air flow to be more directed at the GPU fan intake. Also I am going to be looking at my local hardware store for a wire mesh to catch dust to completely fit the side inflow. Pictures and diagrams are coming.

 

Extreme overclocked 7950 can almost best a 6990 at this Korean site.

 

They were of using a Gigabyte triple fan version not the single fan reference design I purchased. The only difference is the heat-sink/ fan design.

 

I am hoping to use the 1.1V core and 1.7V memory 1110/7600 setting at stable temps and use it to game. Over 9000! for 3DMark11 would be nice to see. I don't think I would try risking to push it harder then that.

Getting my CPU finally and in other NEWS, sure glad I didn't wait for IB it would have taken forever. IB-E will probably be delayed as well as the future tick-tocks IMO get harder and Moors Law breaks down but this is due to economical reasons.

 

On the flip side if WWIII breaks out I believe we will see the photon quantum computers emerge with pure manufactured diamonds with laser etched impurities to make cavities for making switches for photons to flow 3 ways like transistor/MOSFET but I don't know how they instead of using electric current direct 1 laser and make it go either 2 ways 1 or a 0. Gravatrons, from lasers photons energizing the quarks surfaces to emit gravity to warp the laser 1 of 2 ways would be sweet to see. Look up "phonon resonance" this tech I beleive is used in UFO tech, and the ability to conjurer anything out of anything example brick>cheeseburger

Hello everyone again I have completed my build and now have it running stable at 4430MHz for the I7-3820 44x multi, Bus base 103, Volts 1.4, usually under 40C. 1600MHZ OC with the 103 bus , so not even 100Mhz difference to 1700mhz, I have 9-9-9 timings still but intend to back off when I hit a 10 then I will feel optimized with the CPU.

 

I have the non-OC edition Sapphire 7950 @ 1.1V/1.62V 1044MHz/1575MHz(300GB/s) <--limit of Afterburner, I just played BF3 in Ultra minus 2xMSAA for 3 hours straight with a lowest fps rarely being in the 50s. MSAAx4 doesn't look too much difference I and I would rather I have the FPS not dipping in the upper 30's on rare occasions.

 

In inner areas the FPS was so high that screen tearing started to drive me crazy so I turned on v-sync. Now it will stay between 55-90 fps with Vsync, Ultra, -2xmsaa.

 

3D on Ultra msaa4x goes into the 20s and is not playable. And the convergence in Bf3 is not so swell. I can't play to win in 3d its good on certain games though.

 

Windows index score 7.8 due to 5.6GHz speed needed for at least 1 core. All 7.9. Ths SSD optimization took it from 7.7 to 7.9. herelink

 

be back soon

 

Video, Screen shot coming.
