PC Gamers Benchmark/E-Peen Competition - Spring Edition (Prizes/Scores Updated)


It's that time of year again! In this thread you can show off your new/modified builds and show off how massive your E-Peen is. I know many of you have the same builds as last time, but go ahead and join for fun. We will have prizes again this year!

Please help contribute to the prize list! I will be donating a steam game set, but if you have other parts, or something of the sort you don't use, DONATE IT!

Rules
1. Download 3DMark 11, CPU-Z, and GPU-Z
2. Run 3DMark 11 on the basic settings in Centered (not stretched, centered should be default)
3. Take a screenshot of your results with GPU-Z and CPU-Z open next to it and your TigerDroppings name somewhere in the screenshot. Like this (PLEASE DON'T MAKE THE PICTURE SMALL LIKE BELOW):

4. Post your Cpu overclocks, Motherboard, video cards and overclocks. Looks a little something like this:
quote:

a) i5 3570k @ 4.4 @ 1.224v
b) ASRock z77e-itx
c) Sapphire Vapor-x 7970ghz @ 1050/1500

5. Link to your 3DMark 11 score. Make it look like this: 3DMark 11: P9484
6. *OPTIONAL* Post up your full build so people can see it (don't be afraid to include pics)!

Prizes
1. Bluebarracuda Steam Game Set - Portal, Trine 2, Space Pirates and Zombies, Frozen Synapse, and Nuclear Dawn
2. $60 in Steam Cash from DoUrden
3. Bioshock Infinite game key courtesy of ILikeLSUToo

How Prize Winners Will Be Decided
This might be confusing and hard to understand but hang with me. Say you get a score on 3DMark 11 of P9750, you will divide that by 250 and you will receive that many ballots for the drawing. Basically, for every 250 points in 3DMark 11, you will get 1 ballot in the drawing. I still haven't decided the most fair way to do the drawing yet, so if anyone has any ideas, or better ideas in general about the way the prizes should be decided, discuss in this thread!


EDIT- If you're banned from TD, send me an invite on steam and I can work you into the competition. My name is Bluebarracuda. Tell me your TD name and such when you add me so I know who you are

CPU is stock, GPU is overclocked from 750 to 775 MHz core clock and from 900 to 950 MHz core clock. Video card is an AMD Radeon HD 7690M XT 1GB. CPU is a Core i7 2760QM Sandy Bridge at a stock 2.40 GHz. Laptop is a 1 year and 2 month old HP Envy 17-3000 CTO with a 180GB SSD, and 8GB 1600MHz RAM. Pretty sure I was over a 2,000 score a few months ago, seems like it runs worse on the 13.3 beta catalyst.

It will last a while. The last one hung around for over a month before the drawing IIRC.

-AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition AM3 CPU (3.4 stock OC'd upto 3.6)
-8 gb 1333 ram
-GIGABYTE AM3+ AMD 760G Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
-EVGA GeForce GTX 550 Ti 1GB GDDR5

Built it about 11 months ago. Only thing ive upgraded is ive added a 128 GB SSD

ive learned a lot, since then. My next build will be a bit more ambitious

Considering going to an AM3+ processor, and adding another 8gb of system RAM.

Cant SLI the 550ti cause its discontinued. would have to buy used from someone and i dont like buying used electronics. bah. Or find an unopened one on ebay or craigslist... HMMM

Really not sure of my upgrade routes. May just sell this off and build entire new one when the time is right.

OC the RAM to 1600 and the CPU to 4.0 with NB @ 250.

Any OC on the GPU?

ETA: That PhenomX4 II is a great CPU. Still awesome budget chips.
