How did this happen...

Go to solution Solved by Lurick,

Because you used medium settings, they used extreme settings

I don't know how, but my 1060 3 GB beat a bunch of 2080s in Unigine Superposition. Specs:

Ryzen 5 2600 at 4.1 GHz

Cooler Master MasterLiquid 240 that I got for like $50

16 GB DDR4-2400 overclocked to 2800 MHz

Thermaltake 500W

Ass Rock AB350M

EVGA GTX 1060 3 GB SC

 

What I think made this happen:

- I replaced the thermal paste on the CPU and GPU with Arctic Silver 5, which has a thermal conductivity of 8.9 W/MK.

- I ran this benchmark right after the PC started up, meaning the GPU was at 39 degrees at the start of the benchmark and ended at 65 degrees.

- The cooler is pretty T H I C C for a 1060, so it never fell below 1900 MHz.

- The case has five 120 mm fans, not including the PSU and GPU fans.

 

So, what do you think happened?

I have no idea what I'm doing and no one can stop me.

Why does your bench say that your CPU is 4ghz actual?

That CPU is stock 3.4?

Yes then shouldn't the benchmark say that it's not stock CPU?

No, he ran it on medium instead of extreme.
