3k In 05...struggling

Recommended Posts

*sigh* so close...I really want 3k in 3dmark 2005, but this card just doesnt seem to want to cooperate. I'm getting painfully close, and I've tried so many different drivers i've lost count. The best so far for 05 seem to be the 2.6.05a omegas...next gonna try the omega 2.5.97, then the catalyst .6512s...I'm running out of options here :P. This is my best so far, without pushing the card into serious artifacting :

So close - sucks huh? If neither of those drivers work I'm gonna just grab a desktop fan, open the side panal, and go for a suicide run ;)

 

Anyone know of some magic radeon drivers with exceptional performance? I've tried the new dna's, but none of the old ones yet...I think the 5.1 dna's, if they even exist, will bench good...back to testing for now ;)

With my x850xt the 5.3 cats are the best. What are the clocks on your card? Also try making 3dmark05 realtime(under processes in ctrl+alt+delete) Also where do you live, because there is always cold air.

Hmm i'll try the 5.3 cats. Outside air is definatly out of the question...I live in central florida - right now we're in a cold front...63F at 10:50am, lol. That bench was at 453/387, and I beleive it was High priority. I'll try the 5.3 cats with realtime. I should be getting a new dmm soon, so I can finally up the volts(hopefullly its not already high volts...I beleive it was at 1.7 core last time the MM was working), but I dont want to try to raise it without one. Planning on running 1.85v - 1.8 is max recommended for air, but I assume thats for like a silencer or other premade cooler - this silentboost and 2x80mm fans keep it mighty cool ;)

look in my sig I just barely got 3k with a 9800pro on stock cooling. and yes that score was with the 5.3 cats as tbone suggested and the card was clocked to 455/360 and the cpu was at 240x10. It could have gone more, but I got tired of the 9800pro and got an x800xt lol. If you want some tips PM me and I would be glad to help. :)

O but I'm going to mod my friend's 9800pro aiw today. Going to bench it on my old lan party 250gb board that I sold him. So you might be 2rd.

Very nice work man!

Thanks! Still tweaking - I think this card has a little more left in it ;)...I wonder how far your friends will go...without any mods this poor thing froze instantly at about 410mhz, lol.

lol, not really because all those scores in my sig were achieved without the meatlocker. Like I said earlier I never even bench my 9800pro in 05 as high as it would go. That is a great job tho on an r350 AIW. Keep it up and go for the front page. :)

 

EDIT: oops forgot: I kinda lied lol one of those scores in my sig was done in the "meatlocker" lol name which one it is and I will give you a cookie haha. :P
