hey guys,

 

I'm playing around w/my RMA replacement 7900 GS - which is going right back due to heat, fan, and shutdown issues. right out of the box, it produced a "bumble-bee" like sound whenever I was using a 3-D performance profile, then it just up and shut down during a 3DMark06 run - and now the fan isnt working at all...BOO EVGA...

 

so, I was futzing around over at TechPowerUp! and found this nifty little video card torture test app. it's kinda like ATITool's fuzzy box, except it's a fuzzy ring - and it rotates! super cool...anyways, here's the link to the OpenGL Fur Rendering Benchmark. I'd select "stability test" and un-check "fullscreen". was hoping that this would prove as useful to others as it has to me - and that maybe it could be included in the next update of "Essential OC Software" :thumbs-up:

 

I actually found out about the RMA card's fan not working because of this test - my good card stayed right around 44 C, while the RMA hit 72 C in less than a minute. same stock coolers on both, AS5 applied Thursday afternoon...BOO EVGA...

Yeah thats a pretty sweet tool there! I just did a benchmark and got 5000 marks with my 7950 gt ko superclocked edition!

Hmm, at what res and settings? From what I can figure, your score is just the number of frames that you render over the course of the benchmark. I get 1000(approx.) with my 7900GT(Got for free :D:D) at 1680 and just barely more(1052) at 1280 and that's with everything at default. No AA, full screen, and set to benchmark with a 60s run-time. Now I know the 7950's are better than the regular vanilla 7900's but you'd have to average around 80fps to get that high of a score and and I'm only averaging 17-20fps. I simply refuse to believe that the rig in your sig performs over four times as well in that benchmark compared to my system with my heavily OC'd 7900GT.

I got 4036 by running it windowed at 640x480... so that's achievable. If we want to use this as a bench thread we need to standardize the settings.

7600 with a 2900XT and a Quad. Phil, there's NO WAY you got 5000 with your rig :rolleyes: Lego/suchuwato should have had more points than you

 

@ Jedi, you need to run the timered benchmark to compare :)

 

@ razor, did you apply AS5 to the RAM? Cause those funny pad things on the RAM are there for a reason. There's usually a gap between the cooler and the RAM, so the pads will usually do better than AS5 applied to them.

7300 with a very mild memory OC on my video card.

 

2200 at 1280x1024 windowed.

see :) Why would I lie about that??? I averaged about 87 fps my highest was 110 fps heres proof :)

Well I know that it is hard to believe but I do not make up stories I have posted proof so check it out. :)

Exactly <_<

 

You need to run native res, AA on for a decent figure ;)
