EVGA SR-2 and Four-way GTX 480 pretesting with Liquid Nitrogen by Deanzo - Results and Final Thoughts

Today I am pretesting and modifying GTX480's before heading off to Japan to assist in some 3DMark Vantage benching on a platform that will require no less than seven liquid nitrogen containers.

Results and Final Thoughts

 

All modded up and ready to go!

 

So far the pretesting of these cards has been somewhat challenging. They certainly don't want to give up the big clocks easily. All four of the cards individually will do 1250+ on the memory, though the core speed has been anything but straight forward. One of the cards at this point in time will simply not complete a run over 1100, which does not bode well when you consider the extra stress on the setup when we are running everything together.

 

On the other hand, while Matt's testing of the motherboard and CPUs started off with a few headaches, in the last few days he has been getting a real feel for the board and has both CPUs booting in at 5.3GHz and able to run Vantage at 217 bclocks, which is right where you would want to be in pretesting before we go the whole hog.

 

I'm getting a real sense of anticipation now and can't wait to get this show on the road and get stuck in giving Matt a hand with his benching. I'll be back in about a week's time with a follow up article on how it all went down.
