  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. @richba5tard Hey rich, looks like the competition points are getting doubled for our seasonal ranking, is this by design or a bug? Ty.
  5. Radeon 5450 is old but easily accessable and very cheap. It's also heaps of fun to overclock once you get some volt mods on it, those things absolutely fly.
  6. Woah the return of Jabski? You came back quicker than Jesus did anyway
  7. We should be selling in euros instead for when our stock market crashes in a few months time
  8. I probably wouldn't advise running hypers at that kinda voltage for too long, it's not going to do the longevity of them any good.
  9. yeah please stop, the minor details such as accidently seleting liquid helium vs liquid nitrogen are not important in the slightest
  10. You're on the right track I think. Maybe we limit the competition to biostar boards only?
  11. It almost certainly a rampage 3 formula because 1. CPU-Z says so and 2. There isn't a Rampage II formula. Also no disrespect but is there any need to constantly necro bumb really old scores like this
  12. even here in the UK, the supply has massively dried out, I'm going to have to try and have a look at pc recycling centers etc
  13. Apply the same fix as GPU-PI with the timer.
  14. Unless I missed something, all Allen did was expose the weakness in the benchmark and how to detect it? Not exactly sure what's rich about that.
  15. Newer members not understand the difference between a legit and an illegal cheat is as much of a fault on those experienced members for not making this clear before hand as it is on the new guys throwing the accusations. My advice for future threads would be to lead with a question instead of accusations if you wish to have dialogue on the issue. Otherwise you're just insulting members who have been here for some time.
  16. There were some flying pigs last night, so I guess that means bench time for me
  17. holy mother of efficiency batman, colour me inspired to give this a go myself.
