Question about the OC database.

I looked through the rules that AG laid out but didn't see this addressed. When you submit an entry for the database should you leave your video card at stock settings for the benchmarks? Or is it ok to OC it also?

I left my video card at stock settings only because I haven't gotten it to pass 3DMark at any overclock. Looking through some other entries there are overclocked cards so as long as it passes all the tests it should qualify. Good luck with your overclocking!

i didnt clarify it in the rules because its sorta moot...the DB is for system overclocks to reference.

 

Some vid cards can achieve monster clocks, while others (my 9800XT for instance) can barely clock above stock speeds.

 

but it isn't a vid card overclock database, nor is it an ego 'my benches are better than yours' database....its a database where people enter their stable system overclocks and others can use them for reference/baseline starting points ;)

 

so

 

if you can clock the crap out of your vid card, then by all means do it!

 

but it really doesn't matter if you do or not so if you can't get good clocks out of it...then dont worry. As I said, the point isn't to show bragging rights about how high you can clock and how good you can bench...its to give others a reference point to check their own clocks with similar components.

 

 

For example, I printed out Thunda's 4x512 TCC5 + 4000+ San diego entry to use as a baseline on my own Centon TCCD 4x512 overclock on a Venice 3200+....I don't expect to score on benches like he did (as i have only a lowly 9800XT on the system i am clocking) but I do expect to at least get close if not pass his 264x11 (which is fantastic for 4x512!)
