  1. A very over complicated HWBot the past few years. Can we add points if I OC with a hat on please?
  2. I use Tap to drain liquid cooling with a water delta that's usually under 10c all year round. I'm honest and make submissions under the "chilled" category.... as it should be.... However, I do run a TEC sometimes and haven't a cooling category for submitting, so I think the last time I did it, posted it as stock on an air cooler. WELL I LIED!!!! HAHAHAA...... But I'm already extreme league. Should it matter then?? The Athlon 220gewas done with a TEC for cpu-z and was running roughly -15c with some idle temps as low or lower than -30c. I've asked before about a category for TECs so I can submit properly, but am forced to LIE about it unintentionally. Yes.... I use TECs. Help me help you help others help HWBot get it straightened out. 👊 EDIT: That's TEC to Cpu.... Not TEC chilling water FTWs.
  3. Im in. Hope you fellas don't mind if I cuss like a sailor. haha
  4. Go to forums and at the bottom, request HW. Give all requested info, screen shot, cpu-z validation (stock) vender links.
  5. Wango Tango I Overclocko!! We should rock the HWBot forums more often. Good tunes!
  6. When I joined there was no such thing as cooling categories. It should have stayed that way. Liquid on the rocks any one? I prefer whiskey.... but hey who's chilling that cold anyways.
  7. Perhaps the hwbot forum should create content of it's own to attract readers. New content at least daily. Heck ANY type of electronics content would bring readers to this forum. Stagnant it remains without HWBot being actually active. Reviews write ups, comparisons, testing, modding pictures, videos, eye candies.... Most popular thread..... "Is overclocking dead or dying." That's no good at all. I don't wanna read threads like this in the worlds overclocking database forums to be frank. Yea, that's right. Just hit that little like button down there.
  8. OK thank you Mat sir!!! Your answers really help me to understand how Benchmate works, and I think it will be a good thing. Keep up the good work!
  9. That's pretty sweet. I'd like to see the old Aquamark wrapper removed. Didn't like it then, don't like it now, especially when my driver crashes mid bench!! lol. So on that note, being a wrapper as it is, when a benchmark fails, how will the wrapper handle it? Will it automatically close itself if errors are found such as a driver crash ect?
  10. Of course I use W7. (or earlier). I have a much better understanding of benchmate and it's implementations now. Thank you for the explanation. I am wondering about Aquamark for example. Is the old wrapper going to be removed or doubled up by benchmate? Assuming I am running W10 and AMD for example?
  11. @bolc This is still in the works. Meaning not finished yet. It's worked on everyday. Give them some time friend. Rome wasn't built in a day you know.........
  12. Benching is like a career. It takes a certain person to be a police man. A certain kind of person to be a surgeon. and... It takes a special kind of person to get into competitive benching. Since kids are born with mobile computing, PCs are just not popular any more. Console gaming is bigger than PC ever was. Mobile computing is bigger than PC overclocking ever was. The hay days are gone fellas. Overclocking is still here, but no longer needed. Performance gains for average users is gone. Run cpu stock, get max performance. With tweaking gain some.... but not like the old days with 50-100% possible overclocking on an air cooler. Benchmarks are getting more and more complicated. We are going to wrap even the legacy benchmarks? What for? Make it more difficult or automate hwbot? Ah well, I'll bench until the benchmate is implemented and then my benching days will probably go down hill with the rest of it. I'm in for the ride HWBot!! Just leave me an open cup holder and an "oh shit handle" and let's keep on benching.
  13. Adding it to HWBot History page would be a good start. It hasn't been updated since 2011 in fact.
  14. Welcome back. Sorry for my big mouth... Some content here, that I was part of, had really nothing to do with you, but some back and forth from another member and myself. It was unprofessional, and I'll choose to seek information and think before speaking. That said, my apologies, I'll be sure it doesn't happen again. So moving on.... How can we as individuals and teams help?? Help in growth of the community? Help in gathering sponsors and making it worth while for them to come and stay? What can we do to help YOU guys achieve the goals you're after?
  15. Hobby. I do it to help fill the data base.
  16. Maybe an idea is Alby doesnt have to mod forums and concentrate on everything else. Then find a respectable user to moderate the disccusions here. Would something like that work for hwbot forums? Just an idea here. Im sure the forum stress can get crazy.... Which is strange cause its not like theres some super heavy user base here... Even though I think there should be. Go HWBot admin and mods. All do a great job yea? Scott is right, should be appreciation for all admin and mods.
  17. Really the finances of HWBot is nobodies business and some people take wild stabs at blank targets. Here's a small link to when HWbot started and has names you seek. https://hwbot.org/article/history This link only puts history up to the date of 2011, and there's been changes and shifts since then. So I cannot get you the inbetween from 2011 to 2015 when you started. I remember when HWBot started. From rev 1 to 2 was a vast change. Every revision since some changes for good some, not so good, but has always been the number one spot to submit a benchmark and it was/is still fun. Oh how this community grew in the mid 2000's. I remember when ALL the overclock forums thrived. watched many tank pretty hard for a variety of reasons.
  18. Let me fill you in on something. I shouldn't but, I will. Some of the crap that happens here gets filtered into our private section on our team forum. As we discuss some of this (I mostly read it) it seems that turmoil trickles down to my team from here. We analyze it and do the best to work with what changes are made, discussion of possible changes and other such matters. The problem is people take stuff personal. Even down to my team members..... What you guys do and say effects teams all the way down to individual members. So HWBot does it's best. As a whole. As a team. You guys really need to focus on positive even with the roughest of issues. It's Linux. You're going to have what.... maybe 1-5% of submissions on this Operating system? Will it really need to be an issue how it's moderated? By the way, that would be about the same percentage of cheaters, if not less than 1% at this point. So, don't take it personal. It's not your fault entirely. You can't MAKE somebody leave over something as silly as a conversation over an operating system. I find it hard to believe. In fact, I'd bet he's been thinking on leaving for quite some time now. Just needed a scape goat. Perhaps you was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.
  19. I don't think you're a "cock"... Don't even really know you man. So..... Don't beat yourself up. Integrity, Optimism, Team before self, and customer focus.
