  1. don't mind 0+0 he has a particular sense of humour that very few people understand.

    MARS/2DI/4GD3 is a GTX295 or not?

    I'm fairly certain we agreed it was a different card, but for the life of me I can't find the card listed..... @Strunkenbold Any ideas?

    HWBOT Prime 1.0.0 released

    Well we at least need some sort of clean up on the results already on the system if we are to eventually give the benchmark points again. So making it a seperate benchmark at least is the easiest and cleanest way of doing it imho.

    HWBOT Prime 1.0.0 released

    Can I suggest we reopen the upload page for HWBot prime as a seperate v 1.0+ benchmark and have it as a finite beta period. After which time all results are removed the database. This would allow for people to run the benchmark and for us to upload results to better find bugs and abnormalities. Also being clear up front that all results from the beta period will be cleared means we won't have any potentially bugged runs in the database after such time is over and people can't complain when the results are removed. Just my 2c anyway

    Why no Cinnebench on win 10 with I7 4790K?

    Compatibility mode makes absolutely no difference to the timing issue, so unfortunately no you can't run it with compatibility mode :(

    The Official Country Cup 2018 thread

    Reference clock is based off the motherboard socket and all CPU benchmarks are based off the CPUs intended socket. As simple as that

    No the L3014 counts as a 771 CPU as it's based off the socket of the CPU itself

    Garrrhh Leeg you still didn't answer the question though, I understand we can only use one socket once, but is socket determined by the CPU itself or the motherboard itself for the reference frequency stage only. All others are really clear because they are either CPU or VGA benchmark. Reference is a motherboard benchmark and I trying to determine if we are basing it off motherboard or CPU

    The Official Country Cup 2018 thread

    It's not a case of it being confusing to me, I literally couldn't give 2 about whether it was motherboard or CPU it's based off, only that I got an official answer as it would determine what I'll be benching.

    The Official Country Cup 2018 thread

    Nope because that's totally unrelated because it's refering to a CPU benchmark and not a motherboard benchmark

    The Official Country Cup 2018 thread

    But this is my point and where both myself and others get confused. The reference frequency is a motherboard category, so in essence surely it should be defined by what socket the motherboard is and not the CPU used? I really don't mind which way the competition is formatted, only that I get an official ruling on it as it will determine what board I need to run etc.

    What about using a sempron 150 for AM2+ through to AM3+ for the ref clock? I didn't get a clarification on this
