    Interesting....shows that 3DMark2001 seems to be more reflective of CPU performance than 2003 scores. There was considerably more gain in 2001 by clocking the CPU than in 2003.

    This is the same for me. At 3200+ CPU speeds I'm getting 16526 in 2001 with the default ATi9700 settings but when I clock the video card out I only get a modest increase to 16891. In my 2003 scores there was a much more significant increase in performance by clocking the 9700Pro...up to 5507 from 5199.

    The most I was able to clock the 9700Pro was 360/320 up from 324/310 default speeds....not quite up to the 9800Pro's stock speeds.

    Are you running a 2500 cpu overclocked to 3200+ or am I mistaking?

    When you ran a standard 2001 score of 16891 then you should be able to come real close to me !

    Which program do you use to overclock your 9700pro, because when I first tried it with rivatuner, I could not get further than
    400/370, later on with the help of powerstrip, I clocked mine at
    403/384. (the 484 was a typing error)

    By the way were do you come from and what did you mean on another forum about 2-2-2.5-2 or something or is that only important on Amd cpu's?

    Yeah my 2500 is overclocked to the same FSB and multiplier as a stock 3200. With the same L2 cache and chip core the performance should be identical to a stock 3200.

    I'm using Powerstrip to overclock my 9700Pro. Those are good numbers you said...are you adding any cooling to the graphics card to get it to run that high? It's likely that my 9700Pro simply isn't as clockable as others.

    You are currently running a 9800Pro now aren't you?

    The 2,2,2,5 is my memory latency timings. Those are pretty low settings that give my memory excellent speed scores. A tech from Corsair actually recommended that I try those settings to improve performance.

    :drool:

    "OH MY GOD"

    If I had scores like that in stock speed I would be like WOW games must fly on your PC. Those scores are GODS scores, Zeus would be proud of that and GOD himself would tremble under the might of your PC.

    I've doing a little work here.....remember this is still with an ATi 9700Pro, not a 9800.

    That's a very impressive benchmark, especially because you 'only' have a AMD 2500.

    Although my scores are higher, I suppose I have spend a little more money than you, so my compliments with that benchmark.

    To get to your point of additional cooling for my 9800,
    No I do not use additional cooling, but since I have a watercooled system in it (coolance EPOX) combined with a aluminium case of Thermaltake, I suppose I do not need that.

    My normal 'working' temperature is only 32 degrees celcius,
    and when I am benchmarking it will rise to 37 at most.

    The temperature of my case is also 32 degrees.

    By the way, I still do not know where you come from (just curiousity, I come from Holland)

    I must admit that reactions such as MAUSER, the tweaker and AZE^ give me a lot of satisfaction, I think that a lot of overclockers just do it for higher framerates, but for me it is more like 'I just want to have one of the fastest computers possible' (under normal conditions), It does not matter if I use it or not

    See you

    Well you definately have the fastest system of anyone I've talked to anywhere.

    I'm from New York. I'm not running my system at these speeds normally because it's pretty close to the edge and its not really worth it. My normal settings are in my signature but to reach these top speeds I managed to clock my 2500 to just over 2.3GHz with a 210MHz FSB and syncronized DDR RAM at 420MHz. I also clocked the 9700Pro up to 360/320 which isn't alot but I probably don't have the best sample for overclocking. Although it was stable and cool at this speed I'd rather back off slightly for everyday use.

    With my 2500+ running at stock Athlon 3200+ speeds I'm getting about 16500 3DMarks (5100 in 2003) but I'm very comfortable running the system 24/7 at that speed and certainly it's fast enough for any current games or other applications. I just like the satisfaction of reaching higher than normal speeds.

    In any case we each have built a system that is likely faster than any stock production PC available today (short of the newest 800fsb P4 systems when we see them). We have to enjoy it while we can because in just a few months we will no longer be running top of the line hardware as the AMD 64s and the 800FSB P4s hit the market. :D

    One more thing. I pointed out earlier in this thread that I think 3DMark2001 responds better to clocking the CPU rather than the graphics card and 2003 scores respond better to a clocked graphics card. I achieved this significant increase in my 2001 scores by clocking the CPU with the same graphics card settings but my 3DMark2003 scores actually dropped slightly. Interesting huh? I need to test this more to figure out why.

    maybe it has something to do with the way the benchmark is configured.
    I think it is easier to increase our performance at the 2001 benchmark (15%!!) because the 2003 ('only 8% increase) has some more complicated measurements in it, so the graphic card is the bottleneck, instead of the cpu (I Guess?)

    Now something else:
    Perhaps we should print out this forum and keep is on a safe place, so later in time we can say that we had one of the fastest systems available (at the moment), because what you said was true, when the new AMD processors will come and the 800fsb pentiums will arrive at faster speeds, all will be in the past.

    On the other hand, I said, and in your replie you admitted it too, We both have the same idea, It must have the capabilities of a monster pc, but in regular use it is running under normal conditions.

    Well in Holland it is Weekend, so Let's Party.

    The town I live in, Spakenburg, Holland has only 20.000 citizens, but it is fun anyway. By the way, we can still leave our doors open at night.
    I think that will be a little different than your New York.

    Have a Nice Weekend.

    Well I live pretty far from New York City and we don't leave our doors unlocked but we don't really have any trouble here either. New York is becoming a safer city and there are many parts of Manhatten I feel perfectly comfortable walking around at night on quiet streets (if you can find a quiet street in NY).

    Just like anyplace I guess, you avoid the nasty areas.
