AMD 955 is on fire :: round 1

· by fabio · Read in about 2 min · (263 Words)

After the small prologue of 3 weeks ago, here is the first round with my new uber cheapo and uber flucking crazy AMD stuff.
Past weekend I and my HwProject.net fellows had 48 hours no stop benching.
While they were focused on their HD5870 lightning + Sandy rig I was testing my new AMD stuff (much more fun than Sandy TBH).
Despite the huge amount of time wasted cause of the ice and moisture I managed to get some good results too, and if the HD with 2k3 server wouldn’t had decided to die there would have been something more…

rig:

Phenom II x4 955 B.E.
MSI 990FXA-GD80 – bios 11.2
KHX 2k cas8 MGH-E-Hyper
PCP&C 1200 Watt
6200 LE PCI-E
WD scorpio 160 GB sata
XP 32bit
Guglio’s CPU pot rev 2.0

super-pi 1M is far to be efficient, by the way looks like it’s the Italian record with AMD – wooooooooot

1M :: 10.359 s

Other than super-pi 1M I did some preparation run for 3dmark 01, tested another GTX280 that on air was way better than my first one but had cold slow bug around -85/-90° C and went for the max CPU freq.
Also appear that the following CPUZ shot is the italian WR…so woot ^ 2.

6840.2 MHz

This MSI is a nice board but have some trouble with Elpida Hyper RAMs and is damn slow in super-pi.
I hope that with the next BIOS release MSI will address these issues.
Round two should be in the next few days.
