  1. I learned to overclock in the 2000's because I wasn't into PC's enough to drop a lot money into a rig so just used old cheap ones instead. In 2010 when I finally decided to build one from scratch overclocking performance was paramount importance because I was skint due to the recession. I built an Athlon II x2 on a mid range mobo with a poverty spec HD 4550 GPU and upgraded from there to the i7 8700K setup I've owned for 18 months+. I discovered HwBot while reading online magazine The Overclocker in 2013 when I was recovering from a hernia operation and thinking about upgrading my AMD F
  2. It's been a little while since the last Road to Pro competition ended, when will the points be added to everyone's profiles? Mine has been on zero for ages despite selecting a division in the account settings and I've noticed a lot of others profiles are on zero too. Thanks
  3. When will Road to Pro points be added to profiles? Thanks
  4. Ok thanks everyone, I'll have to do some re benching then. Is it the same for Cinebench 15 & 2003?
  5. I guess that means the first place sub for the 8370 needs taking down then and all my other Cinebench subs. 1000's of them on HwBot have part of the rendering covered. Every cinebench sub I've ever made is invalid, the bench will throw an error anyway if it fails to complete the rendering properly.
  6. This submission has been blocked twice, aparently it isn't the fully rendered scene?? I had to make the window smaller to show the road to pro background but other than that it is fully legit as far as I can see. All the other Road to Pro Division VI subs look exactly the same so no idea why mine keeps being picked on. http://hwbot.org/submission/3806215_ Is there something I am missing here?
  7. The scene is clearly visable, perhaps Leeghoofd should block all the other road to pro submissions who's screenshots are the same as mine.
  8. Get a Sabretooth as a backup board, they are cheap and nearly as good as the Crosshair.
  9. I wouldn't send it anywhere, I RMA'd mine to eBuyer who have sent it back to me with bent pins. You couldn't mash them up so bad if you tried, they are pushed right down to the bottom of the socket. I only RMA'd it because it wouldn't run XMP memory and I don't like the board. They obviously didn't want to give me my money back. The customer support from Gigabyte when I've looked into getting a repair is garbage, no phone numbers or straight forward email address. A questionaire with lots of irrelevant details to fill in.
  10. Looks like I will have to re-bench it when the new X265 which goes to an extra decimal place comes out.
