  1. I love to see the discussion happening; this is what's great about the community. All are coming together to share insights and opinions with a bit of banter. Looking at both sides of the equation here, we can see both arguments and I want to touch on these. The all-out frequency method that's historical to Overclocking and embodies a core pillar of its meaning and the new world realities of hardware, stability and what happens behind the scenes to make it happen. We have the current method, which is historically accurate to overclocking: Maximum frequency, maximum volts, all th

  3. Just my 2 cents or maybe 4 as the post is longer. not evaluating what has been and what will be but more looking at the hardware aspects as i also commented on a great video made by Buildzoid in the same line of thought. I completely agree with the aspect of simply measuring cpuz and get it validated for a single core. Binned or not it shows a great complexity to be able to overclock up to 7 - 9 Ghz range on any CPU. Congratulations to those who managed and hold the records. I also congratulate the manufacturers of both CPU and Motherboards and memory who made it possible. Having e

  4. After re-binned my P45 mobo and idle E8 CPU for weeks, I found a holy new and amazing world of raw FSB freq. You can refresh your mobo and CPU wish lists after I submit some results and VCRs, just wait a minute :P

  5. @TAGG Thanks TAGG Yes, i have some Links. There are two Kinds of this 5-Digit Voltmeter; the "DC 0-33.000V" shows at every Range 3-Digits after Point. The "DC 0-4.3000-33.000" shows till 4.2999 4-Digits after Point and after hitting 4.300 it switches to 3-Digits after Point. The ebay-Seller "diy-electronic" was the Dealer where i got the 5-Digit LCDs from. But there is another Seller, which sells these Voltmeters; alice-electronic. On Overclock.net i made a own Thread about Voltage Display's (Voltmeter, Voltage Monitoring, LED Panel) Hopefully this Informations are what you as

  6. I hope my post is safe. But so far it seems the community wants things to stay how they are. Max Freq = Max Freq Just an idea, introduce this All Core Max Freq as a Beta, Lord knows there is some not so great benches already in Beta, and see if people actually try or participate in it.

  7. I see no other value in cpuz validation except highest possible frequency for a single core. Too many ways to manipulate/cheat if it will require all cores/HT enabled anyway (priorities, affinity, forced throttling etc). We already have multithreaded benchmarks to evaluate "all cores active" frequency. CPUZ is about the edge of stability and nothing else (well, plus some basic system info).

  8. Hola everyone , as you already know this brand new architecture of AMD RDNA 2 has come in the form of RX 6xxx video cards. I can really say this video cards are fast and can trade blows with the rtx 3090 / rtx 3080 and rtx 3070 as i have tested myself. " Monster in all Firestrike benchmarks - FS/FSE/FSU " and nvidia cannot touch it there. In the wake of this new architecture some things have change in the amd drivers and in the rx 6xxx Bios too. As it stands right now amd has an artificial lock on the max clocks on the core and memory as you already might heard or know. This is the down

  9. Proposal 2 has CPUZ limitations as mentioned in other posts, so that might be something for the future Regarding the memory proposal we have already tried it out in Country and Team Cup and indeed it is more challenging, but again CPUZ is not 100% bulletproof.

  10. Anyone know where I can get the 2kW US Plug x2 XOC bios for this. I recently modded my breaker box with my new tig welder, you know like a shunt mod so I should be able to handle it. Thanks in advance, it would be a shame to let this $10,000 pot go to waste

  11. This. Menu items have been created, but aren't published on CMOS setup pages. You can open these BIOS files with AMIBCP (3.37 or 3.46) and look at the "BIOS strings" tab. There are some strange names over there. I've got a 4CoreDual-SATA2 board but haven't played with it yet.

  13. I'd be glad to see nothing ever change with pre-existing benchmarks and rules. When rules stay the same you can get an apple-to-apples comparison generation after generation. If we're going to change stuff, let's change it all back the way it used to be. No seasons, no sliding scales, points is points, is points, the highest score wins. I see and like the thought behind requiring all cores and HT be enabled. That is a better way and ideally it would have been like that from the start. I don't use my computers with cores disabled or HT disabled. I bench my systems the way I use them. I th

  14. Well..... If this is an arguement that's based on whether a bencher is sponsored or one of the "In-House" guys, it doesn't have alot behind it. There are some here that can get results similar to or even beat these guys while doing it on their own dime like I have to do for anything I do, regardless of how it turns out. Money, although it DOES make alot of difference isn't the only variable in play here, some do have the skill and determination (Insanity?) to make it happen. While it is true those guys have a real, inherent advantage it's not the end-all as some make it out to be.

  15. Thank you for your Input and your Wishes I'm fully aware of the Fact, that there are a lot more Things to do. Especially that you can't force so much Voltage into the vAGP/vNB-Lane when using AGP-Cards. And there is no real Solution to split them so you could adjust both separately. I have got one or two Ideas, but till now i don't know how to accomplish them. The very first EPower-Test was done; and then the 775Dual-VSTA got a Short-Circuit because of leaking Watercooling-Block ...

  16. All this doesn't solve the question "But can it run Crysis at that frequency?", so why bother? I'm all for leaving it as is and don't make things more complicated. CPU-Z doesn't even show what each core is running at, it has to be modified to suit that need and I agree with others that mentioned big.LITTLE and all other complications. PS: I stand corrected, it apparently does now. It shows when I've last "benched" cpuz Technically that's not possible Rest of the cores in the same CCD will have much higher frequency. I think the maximum difference is 800MHz or so

  17. You will need more than cooling , for a proper 3D session. The board needs hardware mods for VRM section and Vdrop (voltage section is too weak). Although , the best solution in an external voltage feed. (epower) Good luck with your future testing and benching. 🙂

  18. Today i have done a few more Benchruns with chilled Fluid on the NB. Just double checked if 402/403 FSB is somehow possible; not today, not really. @GRIFF That was my first Thought, too The "Magical-400" on VIA PT880 Pro. @TASOS Thanks. To be honest; no, i haven't tried any other CPU for max FSB on this Mainboard. I had some Trials with this E8400 on other MBs and i knowed, that it can do easy 500 FSB. So i decided to start with this CPU, to be sure that it isn't the limitation Factor. Maybe i will try a Conroe for Science. @Leeghoofd You asked how high it wou

  19. Roman you're a reasonable guy that makes informed decisions, that's why your NOT going to make CPUZ benchmark all cores/threads 1. the community has voted, you can go against this, but all that stuff you said about HWBOT saying community based goes out the window, you lose the right to say that anymore. regardless if its true or not, this looks like asusbot, thats not good for you, the community or asus 2. this looks really salty on the back of the gigabyte beating asus, regardless if its true or not, that's how everyone is interpreting it and thats fact 3. lets look at this log

  20. Didn't realise this was an issue, it's been allowed for as long as I can remember, it's allowed for other benches so why wouldn't it be for this? Gives people a better chance of needing less binning, instead of 1 core holding back 7 good ones for example. If people really do care then having two categories is reasonable, but don't see any logic getting rid of the current one.

  21. Okay so we had some interesting discussions especially on discord and we can see how this goes and what you guys want. Will give it some more time

  22. 1. Hi. Normally, VTT won't give you any noticable gain - one cpu will do FSB 650 in 32m with 1.44-1.49v vtt, another one will hit the wall at 630 with same voltage and raising vtt to 1.7v won't break that wall. Also, some cpus have a very narrow range between full stability (pi 32m run) and valid - just 10-15mhz, others may have that range extended - like 640mhz 32m and 690mhz barely stable to validate (but yet 50 mhz difference). I would say C1 stepping is first category, E0 is second category. CPUs are also extremely sensitive to GTLs. So I would bin cpus for fsb validation if that is the go
