Benchmark Thread - How do you rank against other GS users?

#1101 Posted by Horgen (109953 posts) -

1267 both stable on the core (1 got to 1293) and Mem was 7114.

The link is still on page one of this thread.

You got the memory higher up than I did, but the core lower. The second card adds about 85-90 I guess... I am almost at 7500 points with a single one, just +55 on the core and lower mem.

That's nearly as good as my 680 SLI I had!

Yep it's a good 50-60% better than my old 680.

I'm pretty annoyed that I got a terrible 4770k though.

You gonna SLI that Ti of yours?

#1104 Edited by Postmortem123 (7566 posts) -

Naw, I don't see the point at my resolution really.

I have just bought another 780 Ti to replace mine, though. I got a Palit Jetstream for £490. The cooler is supposed to be pretty amazing (~65C load temps) so I'll see how it goes.

#1105 Posted by Klunt_Bumskrint (3388 posts) -

@Postmortem123: What was wrong with you other one?

Also whats the Asic quality like on that Jetstream and what make of RAM does it have?

#1106 Edited by Postmortem123 (7566 posts) -

Nothing really, it's just I want one that runs cooler and quieter. I could buy an aftermarket cooler and fans but it would cost me more than just getting the Jetstream, and VRM cooling with aftermarket coolers is always wonky.

I haven't got it yet :P

ASIC quality is a useless measurement anyways.

#1108 Posted by Postmortem123 (7566 posts) -

Not sure, but it doesn't seem to make a difference. My 780 Classified had an ASIC quality of over 80% but it sucked really bad. This 780 Ti is 70% and is pretty awesome.

How come the OC when using water or stronger stuff is actually lower?

Where do I check the quality of my card?

Edit: Checked mine. 76%

Is that considered lower or higher?

#1111 Edited by Klunt_Bumskrint (3388 posts) -

Lower. My other is 78%. They both clock well on air and stay cool.

Unless you're water cooling you want as high as possible.

That's a pretty great deal... I got my stock 780 TI for £550 at launch.

Also Haswel is poor for overclocking I have used 2 different i5 4670K's and one i7 4770K and all three of them struggle to get past 4.2-4.3Ghz stable on air cooling and one was setup with a Phantek. My 4670K cannot break through 4.2 no matter how much tinkering with the bios or if I use my push and pull TX3 or Be Quiet Dark Rock 2... Both strangely give the same thermal performance.

Do not like Haswel so far, I miss my 2500K :(.

7756- Once again at the top of the 680's! Sorry Horgen :-P

http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/2475183

And with a large margin as well... Though I suspect the difference comes from a better processor for this benchmark and also a higher overclock on it. My card has been running at 1320/6900 vs your 1280/6950, processor wise it is a 3570K at 4.3 vs 3770K at 5.0. I could always try to get my CPU higher, however I put on the waterblock really bad so I need to re-do that first. Atm I won't get over 4.7 without it breaking 75-80C.

Your 680... does it have 2*6pin or 6+8pin connector?

#1118 Edited by The_Animator420 (227 posts) -

@horgen123: My GPU has a 6+8 pin connector. I am still pushing it further. Not done tweaking it quite yet. I feel like I got a dud 680 though. If I push it even the slightest bit further, it usually crashes.

Do you have a full custom water loop or an all-in-one? I have an h100i(4 fans in push/pull) on my 3770k. At 5.1ghz it doesn't pass 60c during FireStrike.

Custom loop which includes the GPU and CPU in one... And you have more power to your 680 so you should be able to push it further than I can. And you probably got luckier in the silicon lottery regarding CPU:

Edit: With your latest score you are matching the two 7870 or 7850 that 2ndwonder has... Along with his AMD CPU.

#1121 Edited by The_Animator420 (227 posts) -

@horgen123: What kind of temps are you getting with that custom loop? I have been wanting to do a custom loop myself but have been hesitating due to the cost, and I feel like I am getting fine temps with just my h100i.

I think I got pretty lucky in the cpu silicon lottery(5.1ghz/60c). I'm still trying to push my gpu further. Hopefully I can get a respectable overclock with it.

I just retested and my Firestrike score is now 7861. I edited my last post to update screenshot and score. Getting better!

#1122 Edited by The_Animator420 (227 posts) -

I decided to run Cloud Gate and see what I could get. I had to lower my OC because it kept crashing for some reason. Close to a 690 though!

Yep it's a nice deal. I guess it's cheaper as it's a not-so-well known brand. The cooler performs very well though, similarly to the Windforce, if not better.

Yep my 4770k needs 1.34v for 4.3Ghz, it's pretty poor.

Good enough, yet higher than your H100i. I have a 480mm rad so I have that part big enough. However I know I did not get the waterblock on correctly. I am wondering if I should switch to the backplate for the H100 that I got instead of the one coming with the waterblock.

The 680 never goes above 45C during Furmark... With a powerdraw up to 128% or so. I know I can do some small changes and lower the temperature there as well, but I had a feeling it would make a mess to apply thermal paste as well as the thermal pads you must have on all the parts. While playing Far Cry 3 with a slight OC (and power limit at 115%) the temperature is 34-38C degrees--- Depends on how hot the room is.

I'll say you do have a respectable OC on your GPU... Heck I am happy with getting a reference design card up to 1320 on the core... Or roughly 260Mhz above stock. I could probably go further if I had 6+8 pins instead of 6+6 pins.

I'm just messing with you. Because you were my target to pass since I got interested in doing this stuff. :P So I'm not being serious or anything.

If you got a second card, you could easily own me. But that one card is probably handling everything you throw at it. I did order the cpu though. Should be here soon. Haven't ordered a mobo yet.

Well it does the job well enough. And after Far Cry 3 I will be playing a bunch of older games so I don't need more power atm. The only game coming soon that I think this card will struggle with is Watch Dogs. :( If it has a benchmark test, I will run that one and see how well it performs. If it is not satisfying, I'll fix my backlog first. :P

Thats good. I'd like to get my hands on far cry 3. Might pick it up if the future if it goes on sale on steam. Well Watch Dogs might surprise you. Supposedly its running in 900p on the XBone. If it IS one of the more demanding games, I would have at least expected 720p. :P But you never know.
I think it should do pretty well on your rig. Wanna do my backlog to?

Not going to upgrade for awhile. The 880 will temp me, but I think I want a bigger jump in performance than that. Plus I have to finish a lot of older games which my current card has no problems with.

Here's my 4670K @ 4.2GHz & SC EVGA 780 Ti @ 1100mhz / 7600mhz
Very soon, maybe even today, maybe this week, maybe next month I will be getting another 780 Ti. I should be fine with 4670K but I am bit scared that it could bottleneck two 780Tis. What do you guys think? If anything, I'd get 4770K but I just got 4670K 3 months ago or so. I'm pretty much in love with my 4670K.

#1144 Edited by Horgen (109953 posts) -

Keep the 4670K. If it bottlenecks them, wait until Skylake and then upgrade.

The thing is I can get a 4770K on sale right now for $280. It's a very tempting deal.

#1146 Posted by insane_metalist (5862 posts) -

Earlier when I got my 4670K, I remember, I couldn't get it past 4.2GHz for some reason?
I just played around and got it perfectly stable at 4.5GHz (I did change some cooling and added X2 140mm noctua NF-P14 FLX on the radiator). I think, that really helped because my temps are so much better now.
I think, I'm gonna keep my 4670K for now @ 4.5GHz I don't think, I would be getting any bottleneck and even if I did it would be very little.
This will serve me well until Skylake.

Excellent.. At what voltage and temps during load?

#1148 Edited by insane_metalist (5862 posts) -

I was running 4.5GHz @ 1.26 which is surprisingly pretty good!

After installing my second 780 Ti, temps went up a bit (I didn't feel comfortable with them). Two GPUs are an oven. So I clocked it down to 4.4GHz and my temps are amazing again!

Here are the results of two 780 Tis & 4670K @ 4.4GHz. I am very pleased :)

After all.. I decided, I'm gonna keep my 4670K. I thought about it and 4770K isn't worth it. It's almost the same thing as 4670K and I am pretty sure, there's no bottleneck @ 4.4GHz. I think, I'd be fine @ 4.2GHz.

#1149 Posted by Horgen (109953 posts) -

That's the kinda score I would like to see from a single GPU when I upgrade...

Your CPU voltage is lower than mine for 4.5. My 3570K requires 1.312 according to HWmonitor to be stable at 4.5. Well at least stable enough for my use. I bumped the offset up another notch after it failed at the two hours mark in OCCT. But haven't tested with the increased voltage yet.
