MSI N280GTX OC HydroGen

3D Benchmarks



3DMark is a popular synthetic gaming benchmark used by many gamers and overclockers to gauge the performance of their PC's. All 3DMark runs were performed a total of 5 times, with the highest and lowest results being removed and an average calculated from the remaining 3 results.
 





 
Results Analysis

3DMark usually gives a good indication of how the remainder of the benchmarks will pan out so on first impressions it appears that, expectedly, the overclocked GTX280 is a better performer than its stock clocked brethren but it is also slightly behind the newer GTX285.

Let's see if this transfers over to our real world gaming benchmarks.

First time I seen a fine machined waterblock from a watercooled ready gpu manufacturer. Looks like it cools well too Quote

Agreed. I'd actually prefer that block (in terms of looks at least) over anything that EK could offer.Quote

Stunning performance. It's so nice to see proper paste instead of that awful white goop too. But wow what a huge performing card and block.

Shame about the bracket. The devil is in the details.
