    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

    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.

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

    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
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. urgh..... Time to boot up the Rex again...

    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.
  14. No it's the correct screenshot, as said we've worked off a 5% difference in past competitions so this is more than acceptable :)

    MSI X58 PRO-E + Xeon E5649

    The 8F bios should work really, are you 100% sure that the CPU itself isn't dead?
  17. Not too bad for a dumpster diving bencher ;)
  18. I'm pretty sure Luumi will be back with something very soon, if not a sandbag then a fresh result for sure
  19. 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
  20. 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.
  21. @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
  22. 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?
