  1. 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
  2. When will Road to Pro points be added to profiles? Thanks
  3. Ok thanks everyone, I'll have to do some re benching then. Is it the same for Cinebench 15 & 2003?
  4. 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.
  5. 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?
  6. The scene is clearly visable, perhaps Leeghoofd should block all the other road to pro submissions who's screenshots are the same as mine.
  7. Get a Sabretooth as a backup board, they are cheap and nearly as good as the Crosshair.
  8. 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.
  9. Looks like I will have to re-bench it when the new X265 which goes to an extra decimal place comes out.
  10. Bit harsh, the threads that I have started have all been answered reasonably quickly. Considering HwBot is free I think it does a great job as do the people running it. There is the ability to create your own competitions so you can tailor the rules to suit enthusiasts. Thinking of organising one myself which I will call the "Quad thread open". Any non Xeon or Opteron CPU's with quad threads except Skylake & Kaby Lake i5 and Coffee Lake i3 with clock speed lmit of 5ghz. Benches would be Cinebench 15, X265 4K & Firestrike Ultra with any non Titan GPU. Will discuss it with fellow overclockers at UK bench meet beginning of March. I feel revision 7 has taken into account points I've raised on here in the past even if they weren't agreed with at the time. Overclocking as a thing hasn't matured yet like the gaming scene so need to be a bit patient.
