Today i get my Christmas Gift :

;)

Before:



After:






Memory are swaped from Asus V7100 pro, and are 4 ns memories - that means 250 Mhz !

Many thanks to Rolo for providing me the needed cards !

The cooler form the cards must be maybe changed, i'm thinking of using some cooper coollers, witch are far bettter.
Testing and of course hard overclocking will start soon.
Because is the winter Time, i will take full advantage of the natural cooling by opening the window. ;D
A voltmod is also planned, in order to bring the card to the maximum !



Look at the Bandwith and Fillrate values ;)

m14radu, this's a real good work and a Christmas gift for all, starting from RAM modules swap and arriving to great new Bandwith and Fillrate values :)
Now I would know about stability and performance of this "new Voodoo5 revision". Also, I would change VSA-100 coolers with better units to protect hardware: man, these are 3dfx chips!


Compliments.

Nice card! If you're planning to create some more of these "Uber-V5's" ... I'll buy one. But for now: benchmarks please!

i'm guessing with a heatgun or hot air solder station. i'm pretty good with an iron, but even i would cringe at the prospects of doing that 1 pin at a time.

That's the 3DMark2001 result at 200MHz.




CPU work @2075MHz, and 1 GHz RAM.
( i have to overclock the CPU to 2.5Ghz ')
I have to flash the card with the Rainbow Bios.
Something wierd:
If i start the windows with the card @200MHz ( Value changed in Bios ) the 3DMark score is very low ( about 1500 points ). If the windows start with the card at normal speed ( 166 MHz ) and afterthat i rise the clock via VSA OC Tool, the score is Ok.

Unfortunately, i had to bring the board back to his Soldering Master due to some problems. Some pins were not very good soldered, so that some errors appears ....
When the card will come back i will continue the test...

No, unfortunately I send the card back to the "specialist" and he manage to destroy it.... and in addition to make everything worse he throw the card away - without to ask !!!
I was very upset about the result.
