The ASUS M2N32 SLI AM2 Motherboard supports up to 1.6v CPU core voltage and 2.5v Memory voltage. For those who crave for more, here are some simple pencil voltage modifications you can do. Take Note that warranty is void when you modify the voltages!
It is a very very rare opportunity for 4 overclockers from all over the globe to be able to gather together and overclock together. This year at Computex 2006, we did just that over at DFI Booth…
We have done some hardcore overclocking with the new AMD AM2 FX62 and Foxconn NForce 590 SLI + Corsair 8500C5 DDR2 Combo! Check here for details and results!
Based around the NVIDIA G73 GPU built on 90 nm process, the Inno3D 7600GS promised much headroom for overclocking. Most 7600GS hits a wall early at around 470MHz Core. This is largely a cap due to limited voltage so we tweaked the voltage up and saw a massive clock increase from 470MHz to 720MHz! That
Tyrou has started overclocking the Intel Yonah Core Duo T2600 and has done some tests with ATi X1900XT Cross-Fire on the AOpen i975x motherboard. Together with Corsair 5400UL low latency DDR2 Memory, he has obtained some really impressive results: Over 19,000 3D Mark 05 with just aircooling on the Video cards! More details here.
China, Beijing, 14th of April – Held over a period of several weeks with the final showdown held in Beijing, heroic and courageous overclockers gathered at the Beijing University’s Memorial Hall for ATi’s DIY Overclocking Heroes’ Summit. The Competition blasted off with 3 levels of tournaments, the low-end, mid-range and High-end categories. VR-Zone gives you
In one of the biggest Overclocking Competitions in China, Beijing, held by ATi just 2 days ago on Sunday, our VR-Zone Team-Mate Xu Gang emerged the champion , acheiving a score of 17777 3D Marks within a very limited time frame. His winning setup consisted of an AMD Opteron 175 clocked at 3.4GHz, DFI’s latest
We have done up a new setup consisting of an AMD FX60, DFI Venus motherboard, NVIDIA 7900GTX & Silverstone Zeus ST75ZF power supply. We tried -92C cooling on the GPU core and brought it up to 1GHz through 3D Mark 06! More details, head right this way.
A little late in posting this, but our forum member Jason, going by the nick of Qwerty57 has taken the 3D Mark 05 crown with a score of 19,886 with an ATi X1900XT Cross-Fire setup. A huge congratulations to the world-class overclocker! For more details on his record and setup, please refer to this forum
VR-Zone held it’s first live Dry-Ice Overclocking Session at Singapore’s most popular IT Mall Sim Lim Square at DAT, #05-58 during a relaxed Saturday afternoon. It was the first time such an interesting event has been held over there and VR-Zone’s Youth Overclock Team gave us a good show, and pulled a huge crowd behind
VR-Zone will be holding a LIVE Dry Ice Overclocking Session this coming Saturday, 25th of Feb at Sim Lim Square, DAT #05-58! Hardware on show: Presler 955XE, X1900XT Cross-Fire, etc… Be there as SimplyAdvanced, Yantronic and guys cook up something crunchy!
A while back, we reviewed the Gigabyte 6600 DDR2 and found it to be a pretty interesting overclocker. We decided that the overclocking we did was a little too mild, so we are going to do some soldering work and blast things up the ORB.
Our FX57 hit a new high after being stripped of its heat spreader! With a good mount, it does 3860Mhz through 3D Mark 05…. and cracks the 17.4K barrier! All cooled by my new portable Cascade. We have uploaded video clips of the full run. Drop by this thread to pick up the videos and
DFI, together with Chinese Media Beareyes.com and GZeasy.com, organized an overclocking competition in China, Bei Jing on the 3rd of september. It attracted a huge crowd of overclockers all over China. After making it through the semi-finals which was held online, 10 top-notch overclockers all made it down to one of Bei Jing’s busiest IT
Inno3D 6800Ultra was the first card to break the 17K barrier in 3D Mark 03 last year when we benchmarked with it: Full thread here. This year…. Inno3D 7800GTXes Break the 17K barrier again, this time on 3d Mark 05 on DFI nForce 4 board modded to SLI!! More details, step right here.
I have put the XFX 6800 Ultra and ASUS 6800 Ultra together to run in SLI, under some extreme overclocking fun! With it a new world record in 3DMark 03 and 3DMark 05 is achieved! 13356 in 05 and 29463 in 03 with 66.93 FM Approved drivers! More details and pictures right here!
First night of benching 3D with the Pentium 4 3.73Ghz Extreme Edition and ABIT AA8XE at 400Mhz FSB : 19345 points on 3D Mark 03 with 1 card and 5600Mhz CPU. More info here
A while back, some of VR-Zone members got together for a LN2 session. Here is a short 2 meg video of it.
I managed to put the 3.73 P4 EE under some -98C cooling. Hit the 400FSB ceiling of the Abit AA8XE quite easily with -50C cooling on the Northbridge. More info here
Gainward has recently come up with a very unique PCI Express Graphics card, the 6600GT PCIE GLH. Lets see how the card fares at overclocking.
