    5.5Ghz for what, CPU-Z Validation? CInebench stable?

    Help wanted: fixing a Rampage Extreme

    I'd assume that running the board without any capacitor is better than with that long wire due to noise?
  3. They'll be hypers in that kit, super hard to find now.
  4. I forgot to post a link, but this is what I was refering to. https://hwbot.org/search/submissions/permalink?applicationId=21&scoreOperator=more_or_equal&score=&username=&regionCode=&countryId=&teamId=&glPointsOperator=more_or_equal&glPoints=&hwPointsOperator=more_or_equal&hwPoints=&compPointsOperator=more_or_equal&compPoints=&globalTeamPowerPointsOperator=more_or_equal&globalTeamPowerPoints=&hardwareTeamPowerPointsOperator=more_or_equal&hardwareTeamPowerPoints=&totalPointsOperator=more_or_equal&totalPoints=&league=&globalRankOperator=less_or_equal&globalRank=&hardwareRankOperator=less_or_equal&hardwareRank=&cpu=&cpuId=&cpuSubFamily=&cpuSubFamilyId=&cpuFamily=&cpuFamilyId=&cpuBatch=&cpuBatchId=&cpuFreqOperator=less_or_equal&cpuFreq=&numberOfProcessors=&cpuSocketId=&cpuCoolingId=&gpu=&gpuId=&gpuFamily=&gpuFamilyId=&gpuBatch=&gpuBatchId=&gpuCoreFreqOperator=more_or_equal&gpuCoreFreq=&gpuShaderFreqOperator=more_or_equal&gpuShaderFreq=&gpuMemFreqOperator=more_or_equal&gpuMemFreq=&numberOfVideocards=&gpuSocketId=&gpuCoolingId=&mbModel=&mbModelId=&mbChipset=&mbChipsetId=&mbManufacturer=&mbManufacturerId=&mbChipsetBatch=&mbChipsetBatchId=&mbCoolingId=&memType=&memTypeId=&memProduct=Ballistix+Sport&memProductId=165&memManufacturer=&memManufacturerId=&memBatch=&memBatchId=&memFreqOperator=more_or_equal&memFreq=&memTCasOperator=more_or_equal&memTCas=&memCoolingId=&psuWattOperator=more_or_equal&psuWatt=&psuProduct=&psuProductId=&psuManufacturer=&psuManufacturerId=&diskCapacityOperator=more_or_equal&diskCapacity=&diskProduct=&diskProductId=&diskManufacturer=&diskManufacturerId=&dateAfter=&dateBefore=&_bestHardware=on&orderBy=score&limit=20&_imageAttached=on&_videoAttached=on&offset=0 Created using this page : https://hwbot.org/search/submissions
  5. Ok so first off this isn't a bug, it's ranked by memory type/technology i.e. DDR3/4 etc and not the individual ram stick manufacturer, otherwise this would be chaos with GPUs where only MSI Lighnings or Kingpin Classys would face off against each other. Secondly you can use the submission search function to narrow down your results to get a leaderboard with any specific ram stick or GPU or whatever you like, I'll add a link to show you the Crucial Ballistix Sport etc. Finally the database is updated by the moderators at the individual requests of users for non standard hardware, so if you have anything you'd like to add then make a support request at the bottom of the forum. Hope this helps.

    No points are added, no awards are activated.

    you have click on the achievment and try and manually recalculate it to see if that works?

    Submission not ranked

    Have you tried recalculating the submission?

    Use the following links to see which CPU and GPU benchmarks give points. The ones you listed do not give any points. https://hwbot.org/benchmarks/processor https://hwbot.org/benchmarks/videocard

    CPU-Z need help

    yes but if you're doing CPU-Z validations that's no good to anyone

    CPU-Z need help

    I wasn't able to find a fix myself, might be worth asking the CPU-Z developers themselves to try and find a fix for the issue.
  11. May I propose you open your f**king eyes and take a look at the rules you f**king muppet

    Xeon usage in Challenger Intel legacy Round

    There are only up to 6 cores on xeon, but we need to make sure we state 1 socket only so that dual socket 1366 boards are not allowed, that would be a competition breaker.
  14. everyone has the team to do it, just need the willing, 32M is a benchmark that takes a lot of learning of tweaks, ram timings etc. Take a look at this starter guide https://www.overclock.net/forum/282-overclock-net-hwbot-team/1249432-super-pi-32m-tweaking-guide.html
  15. Very nice! I smell a new challenge that I want to try :D

    X48 Ram Advice

    I am really not sure what I'm missing here, basically I can get up to 600FSB and use any ram setting I want with full stability, anything after that an I need to turn ram speeds right down to have the slightest bit of stability. Now I am probably forgetting something basic here but I've seen guys with 700FSB screenshots and over 2K ram clocks. Just a pointer really at what setting I could possibly be missing or forgetting would be really appreciated.

    Xeon usage in Challenger Intel legacy Round

    I think as a general rule of thumb, xeons should be allowed in most legacy comps due to their low price which keeps more in the spirit of what the comps are about. That and the fact there is no real advantage to be had by getting a xeon over a regular mainstream part.
  18. Nicely done! Welcome to the 8GHz club!! :D

    WTB: Highend DDR ram and AGP video card.

    I got a kit of 500MHz that I'd be happy to send you for postage costs honestly. Though it might be cheaper to find something locally due to the low value of the item.

    Cheapaz Chips 2019 Planning Thread

    Good point, I'll do a test on the 3DMarks over the next couple of days with different CPU and GPU speeds etc and post the graphs for others to see

    hwbot "classic" rev8

    @richba5tard Hey rich, looks like the competition points are getting doubled for our seasonal ranking, is this by design or a bug? Ty.
