CHEAPAZ CHIPS SEASON 1

Post #1 by Jumper118 » Sat Jul 23, 2016 11:34 pm

For anyone who wants to enter this. We can use this thread to discuss.

The only restriction is that you use a GT710
So far i have an EVGA GT710 1gb with samsung memory

you can get 1gb cards from cex for £24.50 posted https://uk.webuy.com/product.php?sku=SG ... 5PvoIMrLAQ

http://www.box.co.uk/Palit_GeForce_GT_7 ... oCy-bw_wcB is the cheapest 1gb, its a pny, £21.99+2.95 postage
they also have the 2gb card http://www.box.co.uk/Palit_GeForce_GT_7 ... oCsf7w_wcB £29.99+2.95

bt shop have asus 2gb card http://www.shop.bt.com/products/asus-ge ... oCg6Lw_wcB £29.73+2.98

the asus 2gb was £29.99 on ebuyer the other day as well.

Stage 1 is Catzilla 576p
Its uses the full 1gb of vram on my card

Stage 2 is 3Dmark01
This requires a lot of tweaking and i have never really looked into it.

Stage 3 is GPU Pi
raw core speed is required for this one.

cpu doesnt make much difference in these so its a good competition to do and its quite cheap

Was watching Buildzoid on Youtube the other day doing this. The way he cooled his GT710 was just awesome lol, he used a plastic bottle I think and had a cut out for the heatsink then poured dice in and used a screwdriver to pack the dice into the fins lol Thought that was pretty cool! Actually saw temps down to -50 doing it.

Am thinking about picking one up as they're so cheap, I do have a 3570K just sat here I could bench along with it, but not sure how important CPU would be in 01, I do hate 01 though lol

I am glad to here that! you should get one and give it a go :) i have both a 1gb and 2gb asus model coming from ebuyer soon. your cpu is fine for 3d mark01, the gpu is the bottleneck for most of these benches.

well the memory does seem better than my evga and surprisingly the 2gb is better on mem speed than the 1gb, but both are weaker on the core. i am hoping to use buildzoid's hard mod guide thing to get the voltage up.
