Well... There goes your warranty presumably...
I hope EVGA will accept these for RMA's if they break down in the future despite you replacing the TM which I think goes against their warranty policy.
EDIT: Now that you've got it set up; when are you going to benchmark the 560Ti's with programs other then Furmark? Don't get me wrong, the results look very good but seeing your Unigine benchmarks just makes me wonder what'd happen if you do the same thing but with your brand new 560Ti's.
presumably Taylor there are plenty of threads all over at Evga forums regarding the end users the ability to replace TIM with out voiding your warranty..
if you are looking at the posts of Furmark recently I have been using it to burn-in and stabilize the system at this time ..don't worry there will be Heaven benchmarks / scores posted for single and SLI ...& coming very soon !
***None of them are any final efforts for high scores just something to keep this thread moving along that user noticeable and productive.
The pic above with all of the results on it showed it running at the slower speed. And I like that you keep bumping the thread.
I recently read elsewhere about a guy who had bought two Radeon HD6990's to run Crossfire in his system.
He he was putting it together, and he knocked part of one of his cooling fans off. The Mfg. refused to replace the fan, and wouldn't even give/sell him a fan. He had to buy two aftermarket coolers for both of his cards so they would cool properly. They were around $80.00 each.
I would have cried,.......[:'(]
OK here is what I'll do I rerun it with the exact same setting and add the above mem screenie to it to clarify hang on .....
well as you can see replacing the TIM was a good idea. as long as you don't break anything yourself your ok with EVGA .Not all that sure about the warranty with Evga with the cards the only receipt I have is the announcements of me being the winner
any how I rerun the above and repost with the mem tab of CPU-Z to clarify before running some Heaven and see what we got ! in a little bit [:)]
here it is not as long of a run and did not need to. Just added the mem tab screen of CPU-Z with the same clocks for cpu/gpu
Should be a bit clearer ! thanks for keeping an eye out Neil pretty sure I may 'pooch' a few more from time to time ....
*** The above GPU OC is a working reference at this time and not intended to be a final OC !
Future ongoing changes will always be noted ! <whenever possible>
After updating the vid bios,on each card separately updating the drivers and switching to MSI Afterburner to pump just a little more Voltage into the card for a bit higher clock speed with-out the slight artifacts in Heaven here are some screen shots with some benches showing the changes. Easier to see & lot less to type
Heaven 2.5 Evga 560 Ti Stock ...Test 1 normal 16x
Heaven 2.5 Evga 560 Ti OC
*** Notes:The slight bump in voltage smooth out the higher core speeds artifacts especially in the Heaven Benchmark .The artifacts were not apparent in the any of the other stress and burn temps.Actually the little bit of V boost seemed to smooth out some of the graphs overall and I have some pretty good temps in Heaven I think they are in the 60sC & each of the cards running very smoothly.Well worth the effort taking the time to replace TIM as needed as well as updating the Vid Bios since it was available and felt very comfortable in doing so.More head room to OC further.
More to come with some other tests game demo benchmarks fps that are available in single gpu and SLi..
'got some of your own stuff to share ?? ~~...then post away guys [:)]

A bit of fun to get the MSI Target scores to enter [:)]
*** More MSI Kombustor Fun can be found here
Thanks Again MSI Have Fun and Good Luck ! [:)]
nice update rrplay
I have to agree. Messing around with the settings in an attempt to get target scores can be interesting, and there are just so many ways you can do it. Lowering the clocks, messing around with NVIDIA settings; the possibilities are just endless! And it's certainly exciting when you reach the target score.
Good luck rrplay, hope you manage to hit the target scores that MSI has set. And nice update!
yep a bit of fun for sure and the scores can be bit different on the X & P runs which takes about 2 minutes to run each time
Thought to update & pop MSI a bit yesterday ..after all they sponsored the HH Giveaway with yesterdays prizes
got pretty close with a bit tweaking &. Almost got one ! [:O]
Congrats again to Cdeeter omgadraco & Taylor >> you guys all make this community what it is [:)]
Just an update with the MSI Kombuster target contest
single card for the X score of 1234 3rd run hit the target score with the below core & mem clock speeds [underclock]
1st run was 1233 >> 2nd 1236 3rd 1234 [:P]
OK so it Underclocking and locking in stability & hitting the target scores .Still a bit of fun.[:)]
Hmmm. So, I see you can enter your e-mail (black-out) and password in the Kombustor dialog box, but are you able to enter you Nickname in that text box? I can't. ...
I blacked out my email for the HH post only ..just enter my email and passwd and my X Score 1234 and it is posted here as rrplay
the first runs I did with Der meister in the other thread were simply to check the post entry on the website an NOT and OC or target run attempt.
had the P Score of 4319 but it is not close enough or target score also had P Score 4323 no good :( should be on target page but not oh well must be that pesky 4321 target score to be there. anyhooo
you sure you have the the December contest edition of Kombustor ? what is you name you go for your account ? maybe some one will spot it or its got to be your account setting or something like that. reinstall ?? apps ??
***FreeJet may run the x score on a hd 6850 on the other rig to hit both targets and post back in here if either target is hit .
