Überclok Reactor: “Überperformance” Gaming?

Benchmarks - Synthetics, Continued

uberclok reactor

PC Mark 2005’s system test gives the Überclok Reactor a 31% lead, which seems a little small considering its superior hardware and clock speeds.

The Überclok Reactor takes a much larger 57% lead in PC Mark’s CPU test.

A higher FSB has as much of an effect on memory access as higher memory speed, and the Überclok Reactor’s 445MHz FSB clock has certainly contributed to its 43% memory performance lead in PC Mark 2005.

The 8800GTX is only moderately faster than the 8800GT, but we still expected a bit more than the 17% PC Mark 2005 graphics test lead from Überclok’s overclocked cards.

A 31% hard drive performance lead by the Überclok Reactor in PC Mark 2005 is far more than we expected from its 1TB Hitachi drive.

    Crysis benchmark is where?
  • retro77
    Wow...pricey!
  • Hazzzaa
    Exactly my thoughts rtfm.
    with the exception of Supreme Commander and Warhammer. The games tested are clearly last generation. Why are you still running DX9 games to benchmark a DX10 system? get something there to actually stress the system a little bit.

    Wow, I bet solitare would have over 200 fps with the Uber. Where are the benchmarks for games that folks actually play?

    I just want to know what the CPU voltage is, I have the e8400 and have it a 3.6 but would love to go to 4.0 if I knew more on how to set it. I have DDR2 800 ram though (Gskill)

    Two DVD burners would have been better choice than a DVD reader and a DVD burner. You can launch two copies of most writer software (i.e. Nero Essentials that's included with LG drives) and burn two DVD's simultaneously, good for making quick rapid copies of photo albums and home videos for friends at a party. Even worthwhile in the budget $1500 gaming rig. I have two of the same DVD writers and writing to both simultaneously is not a problem for modern dual core systems (less than 5% CPU to burn to two drives at once), and you still have enough CPU headroom left to play HD video simultaneously on a mid-range graphics card.

    ap90033, I also have the E8400, DDR2 800 ram and have it at 4.0 stable. My settings:

    Unlinked
    FSB - 1779
    RAM - 800
    CPU core - 1.50v
    CPU VVT - 1.35v
    Nothbridge - 1.43v
    LTD - 3x (Under Advanced Chipset Features)
    Memory Timing - Auto

    Would like to go higher than 4 but my abit FP-IN9 mobo refuses. The same with everyone else who has this board. Point is, you should get your e8400 up to 4.4 at least with a OC friendly board.
  • ap90033
    isnt that voltage to high? I thought 1.4 was the highest you could go safely?
  • spekkies2
    which voltage do you mean: cpu core or northbridge? some people go even higher:

    Check out those settings. Apparently raising the cpu vvt voltage quite high can help a lot with stability.

    extra cooling for the northbridge would be a good idea though.
