  1. I guess now the people asking if it helps to remove memory slots have their answer.
  2. Typo in the memory batch? Presumably should be -10B not -01B. Nice score BTW
  3. "I'm required to list a price but just want offers" GLWS, I'd be interested if it was EU
  4. Yeah, personally I don't think such a trivial thing should be a reason to remove a score that isn't claiming a record or getting a significant amount of globals. No-one would think for a minute the score is in any way cheated/fake. Also frankly it wouldn't surprise me if some of my past scores have the same mistake.
  5. I assume he's looking at the fact that the score isn't visible in cinebench's comparison graph
  6. Hahaha yes, this. I'm in favour of all ycruncher stages but this in particular.
  7. Protip: The Powercolor 5770 PCS++ with the memory heatsinks on the back has a Volterra VT1165MF controller (not the PCS+ without the heatsinks, that's not volterra, techspot are clowns), documented to have excellent software voltage control. Full datasheet at https://www.rom.by/files/vt1165m.pdf - check page 20 for SVID codes to over 2V and the SMbus registers, hex edited sapphire trixx might do the job though. Have fun with the modding comp guys.
  8. Restrict it to single channel as well so i can be competitive with my half-broken Fatality F-I90HD rather than having to use an nvidia board 🤣 I hate this suggestion but only on an emotional level, not a logical one, which I think means it's actually a good idea. I'm suspicious that it comes 2 hours after I posted a garbage refclk sub with a comment complaining about my new nvidia board though...
  9. Yeah I think that's sensible. I'm a big fan of there being plenty of options, same as how AMD+DDR1+AGP implies you could run a Duron and that's fine. Simpler rules, more people can enter, people can make silly subs for fun, doesn't mess with the 'meta'. Probably a good idea to ban Xeons though because otherwise it'll turn into an all-Dempsey competition. So the stipulations would be: DDR2 only CPUs from the Netburst (Pentium 4, 65nm), Netburst (Pentium 4, 90nm), Netburst (Pentium 4, 130nm) and Netburst (Pentium 4, 180nm) families No Xeons
  10. Apologies, i misread... we can blame @Noxinite instead
  11. Suggestions from the Cheapaz thread that I think could make sense for team cup: s775 pentium 4 (suggestion from @ObscureParadox) s478+AGP 3D (suggestion from @bigblock990) AMD+AGP 3D (suggestion from @Digg_de) s775 pentium 4 would make sense as a DDR2 stage. IMO there's no need to specify socket, just arch - if someone wants to use one of the 478 DDR2 boards with a 915 chipset, good luck to them. I'd like to suggest HWBOT x265 1080p - it should be sub-20 minutes (shorter than superpi 32M and wprime 1024M on this platform), and while it's beneficial to get the right CPU and OS setup it'll run on anything. It hasn't been benched as extensively as other things on the platform, so there's less chance someone can just load up their old settings to run the stage, but this also means less points for a strong score which is a negative and it's harder to know if your score is good which could be seen as either good or bad. 478+AGP and AMD+AGP 3D sound fun, I'd like to suggest something that's more CPU-heavy on the fastest cards - maybe 01 or aquamark, or perhaps 05...? I don't really know much about 05 other than it's more CPU heavy than 03. Much as I'd like to increase the market value of my 2600XT, 3850 and 4650 DDR2 AGP cards, I think it would be better if teams that don't get hold of top cards aren't completely screwed and teams that do aren't automatically doing well. The AMD option would be a very interesting DDR1 stage because it'd force a non-optimal motherboard for the socket and reward the collectors who already have and know a good 939 AGP board (to be clear: I am not among them, I'm thinking of warp9 guys). It looks like last year there was a 478+AGP stage (3DMark99 Max), so AMD DDR1 + AGP is a good idea.
