  1. Used to do water all the time and still could TBH, I haven't forgotten how (Yet).
  2. Agreed - No dogshiite stage, too much trouble and not enough TIM for all that.
  3. Yes, nothing I can do about that since the chip's IMC is damaged and it hurts but at least it's still alive (For now). 😁
  4. Thanks guys. To answer a question asked; Yes, I use BD Conditioner.
  5. If you can do it, it ain't bragging. Had to try it and see what this chip can really do with the right tweaks. It may have more left in it yet and only one way to find out. 😁
  6. 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.
  7. My thought is with some benches like Super PI, it doesn't matter since it's single threaded - The result will still be the same without as much stress on the hardware or the cost in Ln2 used just to get it done. I do understand the thing about all cores active for a CPU-Z validation but again, it's not like some are capable of doing it and some are not. Anyone can do it that way if they want so it's really more of a personal preference to bench it that way than anything else (To me). I too don't care how many cores are used for a validation, we've been doing it that way for a long time

    Hey guys......

    When will some of you be getting one of these to test? Can't wait to see what you guys can do with it. https://youtu.be/0frNP0qzxQc.
  9. I'm thinking is an issue with newer versions of CPU-Z vs SetFSB itself, like it is with older Socket A systems locking up when you open CPU-Z with any CPU-Z version 1.60 and later. Although it doesn't happen with all Socket A's it occurs on alot of them, I've ran into that too many times myself. Also; Do bear in mind SetFSB is an older tweaking util and I seriously doubt it's been updated for a VERY long time now. If the guys working with CPU-Z can solve all that it would be great.
  10. Possibly - I can't really "Name" the color you're using but it's been said using the Olive theme in XP helps. If you're already using it, then you're fine.
  11. Thanks - I believe I could have got even more from it but was running low on Ln2 and the system was acting buggy so shut it down. I even came close to doing a run around 8250 but it locked up on iteration 0. Thats how it goes sometimes. I'll give it another go later.
