  1. As above, get to testing different GTL levels, ram timings, performance levels and straps etc to find what effect it has on your board. This will be a chipset issue and not a ram one. Good luck
  2. There's not that much left though Don't forget too that it's almost impossible to run good memory speeds with an L3014, the boards just don't like it, hence Luumi was only running single channel memory for his runs.
  3. No it's a very fair point. When I made my initial statement I forgot that this wasn't run at max multiplier, so there is a lot more wiggle room. Maybe I should get out my AM3 boards and get some testing done too. But for sure first things first is to maximize what I already have
  4. You can still get around 3500 with an L3014 if you maximise everything. This for sure isn't game over for the Xeon It's also almost impossible to get much faster than this with a Sempron on DDR3 because of the IMC limitations. All the same I'm really glad someone managed to get this fast with a Sempron, it for sure makes the game really intersting. I'm looking forward to the battle
  5. urgh..... Time to boot up the Rex again...

    The Official Country Cup 2018 thread

    Sorry if this was answered but I couldn't see a definitive answer. For the motherboard frequency stage we are ranking by what socket the motherboard is right and not the CPU used? Reason I ask is for the AMD issue with 2+ through to 3+. I believe it should be motherboards socket but am fine with either.
  7. No it's the correct screenshot, as said we've worked off a 5% difference in past competitions so this is more than acceptable :)

    [WTB] CPU DICE Pot

    We don't really touch DimasTech items anymore

    MSI X58 PRO-E + Xeon E5649

    The 8F bios should work really, are you 100% sure that the CPU itself isn't dead?
  10. Not too bad for a dumpster diving bencher ;)
  11. I'm pretty sure Luumi will be back with something very soon, if not a sandbag then a fresh result for sure
  12. Yup result would probably be a lot better with hypers, was having issues at the start of the bench session and I wasn't sure if it was Ram or NB related. Since my Hyper kit is really new to me and I've done very little testing on it, I decided to switch to a tried and tested kit to eliminate any doubt I had. I'll be switching back to Hypers for the next run as well as using a new OS and actually optimising my runs instead of just pressing start
  13. Thanks for the kind words guys The trick to this benchmark is to break the OS so bad it doesn't know which CPU it is anymore.
  14. @richba5tard thanks so much for getting this done, I don't think people thank you enough when you take the time to get these small fixes done
  15. Was just thinking about this, on the old forum you could click on a link in the result discussion page and it would take you to the actual result page. Is it possible to have this added again or if this is already a thing can someone point out to me where it is as I don't see it Going to the bot and manually searching for it is a bit of a pain...

    Money wasn't taken no since I never even got the details to send the payment too.

    Just to keep everyone up to date, the seller has not been online since the 16th of October so I suppose the sale is no longer going through?

    Well no it's not because Fermi is 400/500, Kepler 600/700 etc etc

    The Official Country Cup 2018 thread

    This would probably make it very interesting for the 775 socket as multiple different CPU's suddenly become viable...
  20. hmm, maybe I'm mixing wPrime and Super Pi up, I remember I tried to run a really slow score for a comp once and it would throw up an error after 24 hours, there is a very good chance it was wPrime then.

    Official HWBOT TEAM CUP 2018 Thread

    Yeah that's completely fine Again it's a real tough situation for the guys with only 3 members etc, I just see this as being a way that people could easily manipulate their leaderboard rankings by only submitting a score in each "DDR catagory" without them really contributing to the final score. They would still get the full points for the stage and overall win. I do want to reiterate that this conversation was never meant to be against yourself, Tagg or anyone else that might have moved before or during the comp, it was just a thought I had about potential points manipulation is all.

    Official HWBOT TEAM CUP 2018 Thread

    Sure so kinda have it like they do in football, if you switch after the cup has started then you can only contribute to the league and not the Cups. Or just set some kind of transfer deadline and ban. So two weeks before the comp starts being the transfer deadline and you can't switch again thereafter for another couple of months or something. Or if we want to go real football style, reopen the transfer window in January?
  23. @Casanova You can't run super Pi for more than 24 hours or it will throw up an error, so I don't think you'll be able to complete a run

    It is a very fair point, I'm not sure what the solution to that is.
