    Default Woohoo!! Just reached 15000 in 3D Mark 2001!! :D

    Just built a P4 2.5ghz rig and I must say, I'm well impressed.

    So far I've taken it up to 2.7ghz and reached 15023 3dmarks.

    muhahaha....new score

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    For anyway whos interested, here's my bios settings

    FSB @ 152 (2891mhz)
    PCI/AGP locked to 33mhz
    DRAM Ratio H/W Strap set to Low with 3:4 ratio

    1.55 vcore
    2.7 vdimm

    Timings are 2.5-7-3-3

    Those RAM Timings could probably be increased now, should get a even higher score then

    Spike_Uk,

    Any reason you are not using 3Dmark 2002 ?

    I was just wondering, as it is the latest version, and because it's a different benchmark, it's scores are different to 2001 and therefore the 2 can't really be compared.

    Still a blinding score you got in 2001 though. :shock:

    There isn't a 3D Mark 2002, there's PC Mark 2002 but no 3D Mark.

    The next version of 3D Mark will be 2003 and will be DirectX 9 based.

    Exactly, what is the point in buying the latest hardware, and then immediately start overclocking it? The same goes for video cards.....

    Must be the "locker room" syndrome

    i think it's just the challenge more or less the same as tuning your car or bike for more speed it's the same princeple i suppose if you want a faster bike/car go buy a faster one but where's the challenge in that

    if i can buy a p4 2.4 gig cpu for £160 and clock it to 2.8 / 3 gig then a save a pile o money so for me there's a definite advantage in overclocking
    but that's me and everybody has there own way of going about things

    Alright so

    I'd always be worried about breaking things, so definitely not for me this

    well it is a risk you take but if you don't go mad things are usually ok the best thing to do is read what other people have done and at what point they broke there's and don't go that far.

    as long as you overclock in small increases like taking the FSB up 1mhz at a time and by keeping an eye on your temps then you shouldn't get any problems.
