  1. Please delete this thread - this item is sold, thanks!
  2. Tested for one week - way too much video card for 1920x1200 I will probably drop back to a 970. $425. includes priority mail shipping, US shipping only
  3. I don't understand your comment, this run was with four SSDs.
  4. No joy. I tried both .3dmark.com/pcmv/549232 and 3dmark.com/pcmv/549232 Must be doing something weird!
  5. What is wrong with this link? http://www.3dmark.com/pcmv/549232 I get "Validation error: A valid futuremark compare url is required if want to reach the PCMark Vantage Hall Of fame. As only 17 benchmark scores are better than you, you need to provide additional verification" when trying to submit - help!
  6. Good afternoon Sir, With Areca 1880/4GB 15xR0 Acard 9010 when using 1x Sempron my max virus scan score is 300-400, actually I don't think I have ever hit 400 with it. edit - I stayed away from sb950 as it looked to me like raid expert was bugged for pcm05. edit2 - Correction - looks like I did get 408 once
  7. Mr. Moose, yes, agree. Mr. ElGappo, Sir, please delete this submission. I assume this was with (what is now illegal) sector size change?
  8. Please fix - points not correct for 3x and 5x pcm05 - see: http://hwbot.org/benchmark/pcmark_2005/rankings?cores=3#start=0#interval=20 http://hwbot.org/benchmark/pcmark_2005/rankings?start=0#interval=20#cores=5#start=0 Thanks, Steve
  9. HDD sector size >512 bytes can get you VS 9000+ which is (soon to be officially) illegal and all submissions using sector size other than 512 should be deleted due to "altering the perceived speed of the benchmark program, tricking it to believe it ran faster ".
  10. Yes, powertoy (originally introduced to us by Master Pro) has been legal for sometime.
  11. You might want to wait for Master Pro's press release but I will venture a guess (my guess - not official!) - 1. Ramdisk is a no-no (as it always has been). 2. Irst or amd raid expert are fine provided sector size remains at 512 bytes. 3. SetLOD ok 4. Mouse movement ok.
  12. Mr. Moose, The rules say it is illegal when - "altering the perceived speed of the benchmark program, tricking it to believe it ran faster ". If you agree that changing sector size is "altering the perceived speed of the benchmark program, tricking it to believe it ran faster " - than you should delete those scores now, it shouldn't have anything to do with "... December when I rebench with high clocks." _____________________
  13. Agree completely Mr. Moose, so you will delete your non-512 sector submits?
  14. I think that 1812 run was the highest vs I ever had, I doubt I will ever be able to get close to that again. edit - Probably done with Areca4GB/15xAcard but could have been onboard 4xC300
  15. Mr. Pro, Can we at least get an official read on removing scores that are "tricking the benchmark into giving a score thats not real".
  16. "The standard sector size of 512 bytes for magnetic disks was established with the inception of the hard disk drive ..." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disk_sector
  17. Given your oc skill I think you will make quick work of me
  18. Yep, absolutely true, hopefully the wrapper can catch non-512
  19. yes - I have been selling my storage stuff but not all of it - yet!
  20. Completely concur. Also, I recommend we do not preclude folks with pcie controllers (areca, lsi, high point, ...) or pcie SSDs - these should be allowed, provided they all keep sector size to 512.
