  1. Core unlocking = OK Core disabling = Not OK ...at least that's the way it's always been.
  2. Yes, Socket F is what I had in mind. Thanks! edit - oh, and one more question, sorry - for the purpose of this stage, do AM2 and AM2+ count as 2 sockets?
  3. Hello my friends - nice to "see" you all again! Question about Stage 12 MathBenchmark... are MP server sockets allowed as long as they use desktop DDR2?
  4. I understand it's not required by the rules. But the presence of German rig pics in every other stage makes it look suspicious. And I'm sure Germany would love to avoid any suspicion.
  5. I just wanted to pop in and make note of the fact that Germany doesn't have any rig pics for Stage 10. Meanwhile, they have rig pics for literally every other stage. Now I'm not accusing anyone of anything here, just wanted to suggest that Germany might want to upload a rig pic or two for Stage 10 to avoid any potential questions later. Cheers!
  6. What about mobile chips in mobile sockets on desktop boards? Along the lines of an Aopen i975Xa-YDG, for example?
  7. And everywhere else for that matter. Speaking only for myself, I know I sure learned a heckuva lot from observing havli at work over the years.
  8. Rule of thumb is that Xeons aren't allowed unless explicitly stated. May I humbly request you put "Xeons allowed" into the rules for Stage 7: https://hwbot.org/competition/CountryCup2019/stage/4805_y-cruncher_-_pi-1b_-_per_socket_-_6_scores Thanks!
  9. If you're gonna go rogue, @Matsglobetrotter, just remember what Greta said:
  10. I kinda feel like 16 stages is too many. CC shouldn't be the TC Pt. 2.
  11. This is a valuable resource for comps: https://benchmarks.ul.com/support/approved-drivers
  12. Love the idea of reprising one stage from each previous year. Don't love the dogpile for CC. For TC it's fine - but I'd rather be able to spend a little more time on each score and have time to go cold on each than just dumping ambient score after ambient score into the comp just to cover enough ground.
  13. Another truly fun Team Cup - thanks to Leeghoofd for putting it all together and to everyone who participated! And congrats to the big winners!
  14. FWIW, I also noticed that only one score per user per real CPU is allowed at Stages 2.6 and 3.7 - so unlocked cores does not count as a second CPU for those stages.
  15. Holy crap, just did a quick click-through of some scores in that stage, and if not covering the picture is still a rule, it looks like most of those scores will have to be moderated, including *all* of the current first place team's. Yikes!
  16. Can anybody point me in the right direction to download and old version of Benchmate with Geekbench for Stage 4.1?
  17. Okay - thanks for confirming my suspicions, gentlemen. Looks like there's gonna be a lot of scores moderated in those stages. Cheers!
  18. What's the deal with Stage 4.3 and Windows 10? I know Superposition can run on Win7, but when I look at all the scores in the comp so far and most of the scores across the bot, they've all been done with Win10. So - Win10 allowed here? And, I guess the same question for Stage 4.7. I know Win10 is allowed for Stage 4.5 because it's IGPU plus a valid link is needed anyway - but I'd like to get some clarity on the other two stages. Thanks!
