    Socket Repair in the US

    Tried writing vendors themselves? Once I wrote Gigabyte about the same issue and they actually repaired my board for free. Great service from them.

    Please fix Aquamark submission (Team Cup)

    I could finally fix this. Thanks richbastard for finding the bug and fixing it.
  3. Quick look at the submissions, all good. Added the Biostar M6VCG which was Jurin using to the db. In future- please drop a message in support section! And somehow we have the MSI 694D / MS-6321 duplicated in the db. Looking forward for next years round.

    The Official Team CUP 2018 DDR2 stage thread:

    We already had a discussion before and in the end, I changed the name to whats written on CPU World. Im not very happy with that though as CPU-Z doesnt detect them properly and users now will have a hard time to find the exact category. But I really wonder what this stage is all about. If its planed as quad core competition, unlocked Zosma will destroy this.
  5. Ah okay, didnt knew that. IMO this doesnt change anything. We still need to stay consistent. Either we allow all platforms on Win10 or we dont.
  6. I cant imagine it will be much different from other AMD platforms... RTC timer, see discussion in the other thread. IMO not very bulletproof, easily cheatable, yet another requirement for a valid screenshot and the question how long should the timer run and what we accept as tolerance. --> in other words way too complicated for what a small moderation team can handle and not safe either. As those monster can run on Win7 too, all Win10 results need to get moderated. But well the chaos is already there. I really give up on this.
  7. Can those monsters boot Windows 7?
  8. Sure here it is: http://hwbot.org/hardware/motherboard/x299_dark_151_sx_e299_kr/ Just for the next time, please fill you requests in the Support section.

    Please add motherboard

    Please remove MemBatchID

    You can do this yourself, just enter the cursor in name of the CPU and the other (hidden) fields appear.

    Xeon S771 CPUs allowed in DDR2 for stage 7 & 8

    QX9775 will also be allowed. But I don't think that matters much.

    HWBOT Rev7.1 point recalculation in progress

    Today I edited an old sub. First I just edited the core count from 2x to 1x and changed the motherboard name. Then I saw that the time on the screenshot was slightly different. So I edited again and this time the sub didnt got proper points to its rank.

    Official HWBOT TEAM CUP 2018 Thread

    I had this already multiple times. Sometimes the server is just unhappy and trying again some hours later helps. Sometimes it has problems because of Ram timings or disk details. I clear all those fields and it usually does the trick. Dont ask me why all of this is working fine when you submit but fails badly once you try to edit something.

    The Official Team CUP 2018 DDR3 stage thread:

    Currently the limitation reads like we just allow Xeon UP (single socket CPU) and forbid Xeon DPs (dual socket capable CPU). But from the above, I guess you mean to just allow one physical CPU regardless if it was intended for a dual CPU system. Or at least it just confused me... Whatever I changed the server limitation and added another limitation for just using a single CPU.
