Fallout 3:

Fallout 3 takes place after the nuclear holocaust that nearly wipes out civilization and leaves the world an irradiated mess. The vault, or fallout shelter, you are born in is Vault 101, situated in the Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia area. The premise of the game is that the Vault has been sealed for 200 years and now your father has opened the vault and escaped without a trace. The Overseer believes you are involved, so you must escape as well into the wasteland that was once our nation's capital. I find myself looking for landmarks since I am familiar with the streets of Washington DC.

Settings:

  • 4x Anti Aliasing
  • 15x Anisotropic Filtering
  • All other in-game settings to maximum

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I don't have much to say about the stock scores other than the Gigabyte EX58-UD4P is the top performer. I also don't have much to say about the overclocked scores. The boards performed so close together, there isn't a real winner. However, that does not mean there isn't a loser! While Gigabyte's board rocked the charts at stock settings, it performed horribly at the overclocked settings. So badly that the scores actually decreased.
