    This has been asnwered before, you have to use the Athlons.
  9. Damn very nice chip, I guess I have a lot more binning to do!
  10. ObscureParadox

    Pls add new GPU (GTS 450 144 shader)

    Pop the cooler off and check if it's actually a GF106 under there

    Official HWBOT TEAM CUP 2018 Thread

    I've not had the time to check this further, but it looks as if the team cup might be killing some of the rankings pages, Allens facebook post made me look up 32M rankings and all I see is a wall of cbjausts scores. http://hwbot.org/benchmark/superpi_-_32m/rankings?start=0&hardwareTypeId=processor_1256#start=0#interval=20
  12. This is sandbagging on a whole other level
  13. Was the score obtained without a license key? If so then under the HWBot rules for 3DMark 11 - Without Key: Benchmark window Web browser with link, score and run details visible

    Cost of buying an old system with a bunch of CPU's to test = $150 Cost of buying 1 Titan V = $3K It's not really a fair comparison is it really..... I'm sure you'll get a lot more out of an old system and learn a lot more too. I would suggest more new users buy older gear to be honest as it gives them a cheaper platform to learn on.

    Even though it would probably benefit my team if it were to stay with Venice only, I can agree that the stage might be a bit challenging and expensive for people who might be purchasing the platform for the first time just for the team cup, or even members who are experienced with 754 but do not have those venice CPUs to get hold of them. I am in agreement for looking at another CPU arch BTW awesome work on this team cup, I am really looking forward to this one!!!

    I'm just double checking in case of typo, we're using AM3 on the DDR2 cinebench stage or AM2? Both work just making sure there wasn't a typo

    I can put a random E2160 in as a socket protector, I should have some binned CPUs I can sell somewhere too if you're interested. I also have plenty of good DDR2 ram kits I was going to put up here tomorrow

    Sandbagging is not the be all and end all, you can even screw yourself over by sandbagging since the server doesn't do too well with people submitting hundreds of scores at the same time
  24. ObscureParadox

    Official HWBOT TEAM CUP 2018 Thread

    Sandbagging is just part of the game, you guys need to learn to push to the max and nothing else, if you're holding back or thinking a score is "good enough" then it's your own problem and nobody else's.
