    This is to put a steak in the ground before I start overclocking this system. As you may have read in other parts of the forum I have been having my battles with this rig. I'm still stability testing and will be for a little while yet. Once I'm completely happy that the prevouse months instability issues are behind me I'll then embark on justifying the current cooling setup One day I will make a computer fly! well at least hover...

    Let's reiterate the settings!

    This is not one of my benches, but it's a fun one for measuring DX11 tesselation ability and not very processor dependent.
    http://unigine.com/products/heaven/

    Settings are Moderate, 16XAF (anisotropic) and 4XAA @ 1920X1080 as used by Hexus in their testing:



    Normal tessellation, 16xAF, 4xAA @1920x1080:



    Quite important to identify the graphics card and any overclocks if you care to share. Accuracy is EVERYTHING!

    Current version: 2.5 (2011-03-02)
    Overview
    Heaven Benchmark is a DirectX 11 GPU benchmark based on advanced Unigine™ engine from Unigine Corp. It reveals the enchanting magic of floating islands with a tiny village hidden in the cloudy skies. Interactive mode provides emerging experience of exploring the intricate world of steampunk.

    It the first DirectX 11 benchmark in the world, the original version was released at the moment of Microsoft Windows 7 launch in October, 2009.


    Features
    Support of DirectX 9, DirectX 10, DirectX 11 and OpenGL 4.0
    Heavy GPU load
    Comprehensive use of tessellation technology
    Advanced ambient occlusion
    Dynamic global illumination
    Volumetric cumulonimbus clouds of high physical fidelity
    Simulation of day-night shift and changing light conditions
    Dynamic sky with light scattering
    Interactive experience with fly/walk-through modes
    Support of NVIDIA SLI and ATI CrossFire technologies
    Stereo 3D modes:
    Anaglyph
    Separate images
    3D Vision
    iZ3D


    Professional Edition
    The professional version is primarily targeted to companies, hardware reviewers and all enthusiasts who need to perform a robust and thorough GPU performance and/or stress testing in the convenient way.

    Heaven Pro version features include:

    Command line automation
    Reports in CSV format
    Stress testing mode (benchmark looping)
    Technical support
    Licensed for commercial use
    Heaven DX11 Benchmark Pro is available for purchase in the official Unigine online store.


    Changes in version 2.5
    Added Professional edition
    Improved support of various GPUs
    Added support of indirect occlusion (SSDO) to simulate real-time global illumination
    Improved stability on multi-hour runs
    Fixed Windows GUI launcher compatibility issues
    Improved quality of ambient occlusion
    Fixed minor content glitches
    Added user manual
    Improved Windows installer

    Hardware Tessellation
    The distinguishing feature of the benchmark is hardware tessellation, a scalable technology aimed for automatic subdivision of polygons into smaller and finer pieces, so that games gain drastically detailed and more elaborated look.

    There are three tessellation modes available in this version of the benchmark:

    Moderate Mode
    This mode is targeted to provide reasonable performance on a wide range of DX11 hardware.
    Normal Mode
    Default mode available in the benchmark shows optimal quality-to-performance ratio. That's the way to achieve prominent visual difference with hardware tessellation technology.
    Extreme Mode
    It is designed to meet the perspectives of the next series of DX11-capable hardware pushing up the tessellation level to the extreme in the next 1-2 years.


    System Requirements
    Graphics card: ATI Radeon HD 2xxx and higher or NVIDIA GeForce 7xxx and higher.

    Installed OpenAL library (included into Windows installer), .NET framework 2.0 (Windows version only, optional).

    Tessellation feature REQUIRES both video card with DirectX 11 support and MS Windows Vista/7!


    Download
    Heaven DX11 Benchmark Pro is available for purchase in the official Unigine online store.

    Basic edition of this product is distributed completely free of charge, please visit downloads section of the website.


    Known Issues
    Crash on Creative SB X-Fi cards
    Please switch your sound card in gaming mode to get correct work with OpenAL library.

    Crash in wireframe mode on ATI Radeon HD 5xxx
    Please don't use wireframe mode on this hardware with tessellation enabled.

    Alternating white frames on NVIDIA 7xxx
    Video driver bug.

    Extremely low performance in OpenGL with AA on NVIDIA hardware
    Video driver bug.

    SLI flickering on NVIDIA hardware
    Video driver bug.

    I ran the same default test with a soft CPU overclock to see how much affect it has on the Heaven benchmark. The CPU is now running stable at 3.9GHz the RAM is still underclocked due to all four slots being used. I still have some work to do with system...

    Which proves this bench/game is not CPU limited. In other words, the CPU clock matters little here, and OCing graphics will make the real difference. Upping the memory frequency/bandwidth might affect things too, but I doubt it matters in this particular bench.

    It would appear that the greater impact is to lift the bottom end. In real world gaming situation you would never notice a spike in max fps but sure as **** a dip would be noticed. If Heaven was a game lifting the worse fps from 9.4 to 33.4 would make the world of difference.

    With some of the simpler games like CoD:BLOPS I fix the fps at 60. My rig barely gets warm playing Black Ops, the fans only just noticeably louder than normal. But then Black Ops is a very simple game. My quest, if you can all it that, was to build a rig capable of running ArmA:2 at max settings. You know what, I have still not achieved it. The only person that I know of that can run that game completely maxed out was running a 2Gb G/Card. Even then it stuttered some. I am still unsure quite what it takes to max that game with good frame rate...

    That Minimum FPS of 9.4 looks like a glitch to me. Try FRAPS to see if it is consistent. IIRC, the lowest framerate is when you go up the castle steps to the battlements.

    A little overclock shouldn't make that much difference!

    Extremely impressive results there {SAS}TB, my selection of G/Cards wasn't planed. As I have stated elsewhere on the forum my PC was somewhat hastily selected due to misfortune rather than any planing. If I could go back in time she would have been put together differently. The main difference would have been a single more powerful G/Card. The Crossfire setup has caused me no end of issues with the PSU configuration. This said I'm more than happy with what I have ended up with. I would be interested to see your results with Cinebench.

    Why thank you Pendragonuk - I'm sure I can eek some more out but just haven't got the time to sit and play much at the mo :s

    The thing with GPUs us after a short while there is always something else tonyempt you (well me :P) but your scores are more than respectable

    My rig does "struggle" against newer CPUs (Sandybridge) on CPU benchmarks and I simply can't justify another upgrade for a few benchmarks (maybe later in the year ) but I get around 7.7 CPU score on Ciniebench 11.5

    Keep the scores coming chaps ......

    EDIT here's a screenie from a recent run:

    surprised you haven't grabbed a sandy bridge with those PCIe lane splitter chip to run your setup. TB

    On the discussion of upgrades, If I had not buggered up my system I would still be running my old Q6700! It was still more than powerful enough for gaming. After all that's why I run a fast PC. Putting a screw driver into your motherboard is a life changing event! Word of warning, never work on your computer with a heavy cold!

    The highest score I ever got on Heaven with my old set up was 2000, I had to overclock the heck out of everything to get it.

    I have upgraded my system in the last few days.

    I'm now running a AMD FX 8150 and 16GB of RAM on a AM3+ Motherboard.

    I have bought a pair of XFX R7970, right now I have only one fitted because I'm waiting for the new more powerful PSU to come in.


    So this result is completely stock clocks with just the one card...



    PS Heaven is now Ver 3 and you have to turn on Tessellation before you start your run.

    what's this? Intel CPU?

    that's a massive jump. must be awesome having 12 threads at your disposal.

    I have turned to the darkside... i7-3930K

    The Cinebench score is chuffing ridiculous, 10 something or other, blooming double figures!

    I'll be uploading a video in a bit...
