Re: Max GFX with $750
So it's all up and running, but OCing has been very hard; the FSB seems to really be messing with us. We can't hit 1600, but we can hit 1700, etc.
We managed to boot up and run a full bench of Crysis @ 3.4GHz, but reboots were hit or miss. Amazingly the temps were very low (30C) with 1.45V on the core.
He only got 10,500 in 3DM06 at 2.66GHz though. Low for SLI GT's. It crashed (BSOD) when we tried at 3.4GHz.
A bios update is definitely in need, but overall the whole system seems underpowered for dual 8800GT's.
