So here goes the first post in this section, . MSI had an Overclocking competition going on, mentioned here because of which started testing MSI motherboards alongwith MSI graphic cards, had a hectic few weeks where nothing seemed to be cooperating but still got some decent results. Shivam was a great support all this while and traveled daily to my place and even when I had lost energy kept on pushing me. Thanks a lot mavihs and I hope you learnt quite a bit about benching on LN2 and the issues that come up, . I sure did, Though next few weeks I would be benching again to better the 2D scores, . By the way just for the folks who might think I get stuff for free, only the motherboard are samples from MSI, everything else is bought with my own money, CPU : Intel IB i7 3770K capable of running 6589 Mhz on Liquid Nitrogen. Will be pushing it further in the coming weeks. I guess do not have to praise the CPU much, everyone knows Ivybridge is in a league of its own, Motherboard : MSI Z77A-GD80 - Awesome board, all the issues I had were related to the graphic card not playing nice but the board was amazingly stable and did not create any issues. Highly recommended. Infact we were running at - 180C constantly for the superpi and pifast runs. GPU : MSI HD7970 Lightning - Star of the show, very strong graphic card, though the clocks we were trying to achieve was quite high, and the AMD drivers are really horrible I say. Was able to run it at 1600/1790 Mhz on LN2 at around -90C to -130C. PSU : CORSAIR AX1200 - Not an expert on PSU's, all I can do is put them on their knees to see how much further they can go. Have not budged yet this PSU, RAM : Transcend Axeram 2400Mhz : Was running these considerably cheap ram kit at 2600Mhz on its stock timing of 10-12-10, cannot ask more from them. SSD : 2 x Corsair Force 3 120GB SSD CoolerMaster Benchtable - An inseparable part of my bench sessions, CoolerMaster Quick Fire Mechanical Keyboard - Small and a very function Mechanical Keyboard, . Love it Razer Naga Now lets get on with the results. For the lazy geeks, who would not like to scroll down, here is a summary of the session : 1) 3D Mark 11 : 14593 Marks, ranked #39 in the World globally2) Wprime : 3.765s, ranked #54 Globally 3) Superpi : 5.601s : CPU@6589Mhz 4) Pifast : 11.22s : CPU@6481Mhz, 1) First up 3D Mark 11 : 14593 Marks, ranked #39 in the World globally 2) Next up Wprime : 3.765s, ranked #54 Globally 3) And now we are below 6 second, Superpi : 5.601s : CPU@6589Mhz 4) And last Pifast : 11.22s : CPU@6481Mhz, And just for tradition sake a few frosty pics. Bear with me just for a shortwhile more while I thank all the companies who support/have supported me which makes me keep going further.
