  1. Hey , thank you ! I decided to spend some time with the board and my opinion is that I don't like this platform to be honest . :D I also made a better score with the same CPU and strangely both are up . I'll try to block this one or recalculate it and maybe it will disappear from the top scores .
  2. Kotori-san , P3C-D has the ability to use 100 to 180 FSB with 3 Mhz steps . Maybe a different crystal is enough , but i don't know if USB would continue to work properly . I have a turbo-PLL solution almost ready to be used , but zafiropo didn't want to mess with his board! I can also tell that board is slow . I tried some Spi1M runs but it's very slow compared to the BX chipset , so it just doesn't worth it (except for the benches that are not bandwidth hungry) .
  3. Thank you Griff ! Once again your team produced some very strong results ! You have some very capable guys in your team
  4. I remember seeing an error while installing the version 8 , but you just have to continue the installation ignoring the error . To be honest , i'm not sure VIA is faster . I have seen dozen of benchmarks from the old days till today . Also , wprime doesn't care about memory speed and cache (L2 or L3) . The benefit of the L3 was very small (Just a few points if my memory serves me right .
  5. Thank you Stermy ! Your last run was very strong ! I tried to reach it with the same board (440bx) but couldn't . I managed to run the rage128 pro card up to 185/205
  6. Can AIDA really tell if your rage card is 64bit or 128bit ? To be honest i'm not sure . I have tested 10+ cards and only one of them was reported as 128bit by AIDA . Of course i couldn't see any performance difference from the other 64bit cards (as reported by AIDA) . I believe the best way is to read the core letters after removing the heatsing ( GL & VR revision )
  7. Java was jre-8u65-windows-i586 But to be honest , looking at "Dead things" score , his run was way more efficient . Dead Things`s HWBOT Prime score: 683.23 pps with a K6-2+ 550MHz Thank you both !
  8. Thank you both Considering it's a dual CPU board it did great . I wasn't expecting to max-out the PLL at 180MHz to be honest . Kotori-san , as i can tell by looking at your score , our runs were pretty close in efficiency . RDRAM doesn't help Pentium-III CPUs and performs close to SD-RAM . I believe the main reason i got to 12K was because of the CPU . If i had your SH6 board i'm sure i would have scored way higher . The 1000EB CPU was only at 2.05V & -30C . It was enough for booting , entering windows and running the benches . Totally stable at 180MHz FSB . Thank you again for your kind words !
  9. For me is pretty simple . Either you follow the rules , or you are not . There are not grey areas . That's the way I work/play/live . At the end of the day , clean conscience is all that matters to me . Quadro2 pro cards are NV15GL are able to overclock a bit better from the ultra cards . Especially regarding memory clocks . I tested at least a dozen of various cards during last year . There are some very few exceptions of course . Geforce2 cards are starving for memory bandwidth , so even a small raise in memory clocks can skyrocket the score . And as you can see the retail GF2 ultra's are pretty consistent and they max out at around 275Mhz . Even a 50Mhz core o/c can't reach a 10-15Mhz memory raise . @TAGG , there are still quadro2 pro scores posted . The topic wasn't only for you . PS . I'm not a bad guy . Please don't make me feel like i'm doing something wrong here .
  10. I feel sad seeing people posting with quadro2 pro cards modded & flashed with ultra bios . The rules were clear and it was also asked about a month ago . http://forum.hwbot.org/showthread.php?t=166808&page=4
  11. Amazing CPU GRIFF ! Congratulations for the efficient run Can you please write the stepping and date details of that CPU ? Is it a Malaysian ? I'm pretty sure that Northwood efficiency is due to the shorter pipeline stages (20 northwood - 30 prescott)
  12. Thanks ! I was really impressed with that Matrox . Tha scaling was great ! 5 Mhz in RAM would give around 50 points overall . Temperature was around -120C . Colder and it would ruin the score . Thank you everyone
  13. Regarding this : Stage-1: Wprime 1024M (divided by core count) S478 P4s have one core , but many of them have also HT . Please clarify if the score is divided by cores or by threads .
  14. That's right . No magic trick except binning for cold . My first test is under SS (-50C) . For example , the Opteron 180 I used for this round is able to sit idle at -55C and 350-355 Mhz FSB , while at -75C can reach up to -330-335 Mhz FSB . I'm pretty sure it can bench every benchmark at 3600+ Mhz , but I didn't have time to find all the correct values ( Even drive strength values help with coldbug and stability at high clocks & low temps ) On the other hand , I have a question . I am 99.9% sure that the specific FX57 I benched is able to run 3dmarks at 3800+ Mhz and 32bit OS . It's the exact same one I used during the teamcup 2014 3dmark01 round . For some reason I couldn't bench cinebench even at 3700 Mhz . Anyone else noticed this difference ? I didn't have time to test my other 3 FX's and I'm still wondering what went wrong .
  15. I don't have an issue with the adapters . It would be interesting to see which benchmarks can be helped .
  16. Hello my friend Scotty ! Apologies for not replying earlier . I'm glad to see you're still around Thank you !
  17. It was a pleasure to bench with s939 ! I haven't benched ANYTHING AT ALL since last year's old school , but zafiropo persuaded me to try and have some fun ! There are some very nice & efficient runs there ! Congratulations to all the participants ! I just love to see some respected members & friends of mine still being active and doing fine . Regarding realbench , I also agree it was a bit hard for this platform . @lanbonden , I don't care at all about the points at all ! I just participated in order to bench with my friend zafiropo . It's an honest truth . So , your runs were more efficient than mine because you had tighter timings . I realized about 2 hours ago . Today I couldn't bench with the 183 divider for some reason , so I tried the lower 166 . After the first run I asked myself ... "Can they also run 1T ?" . At 255+ Mhz they couldn't , but at 233 it was OK .
  18. Looks like GT2 gets a nice boost with this driver . Can anyone else try it and tell us ??
  19. :D:D But ... I have a feeling that the driver was wrong . Just saw Remarc's run ! I was at Zafiropo's place till 6:30AM . After reaching 9000 marks , i called it and went back home to sleep . I woke up about 30minutes before the stage ends . It wasn't sandbagging ! I was "time limited" . Thank you man ! Appreciate it !
  20. It was nice to have so many teams ! Congratulations to I.nfraR.ed , ZFess , Gumanoid ,macsbeach98 !
  21. You are right ! Win2k is more efficient for 3dmark2001 with these platforms . I knew it before this competition started ! Agp 8x scored a bit higher . 100-200 points max from what i remember.
