  1. That's just what I did without realizing the order was important. Thanks.
  2. The latest versions of 3dm11 and systeminfo have to be used together. I got that message when trying to install the latest 3dm11 with systeminfo 5.25. I didn't try 3dm11 v 1.0.132 in combination with SystemInfo v 5.26. The versions that work together are 3dm11 v1.0.179 (or later available now at UL/Futuremark) and System Info 5.26 (or later presumably). Edit: The rules for the Cheapaz 3dm11 stage mention this pairing.
  3. Mats: HEVC h.265 needs a boatload of memory in absolute mode. With my 7980XE cut back to 32 threads, it takes around 14GB of available memory before the benchmark will even offer absolute mode. Fewer cores probably take less memory than that, but still a lot. If there is too little installed or too much is truncated, the absolute box can't be checked. The increase in cores from 7640X to 9960X and likely a difference in truncating between Win7 and Win10 BCDs could account for exactly what you are seeing.
  4. Looks like a heat pipe just like on most air coolers. This one seems to have large enough radiator or such in the box that the total power capacity is more than an air cooler that fits on the CPU. From their claims, Polarbox can carry more power than any water cooler. The downside is the long fluid and gas lines. The clue is "circulates the refrigerant, using evaporation and gravity" which is the description of a near-room-temperature phase change cooler, in other words a head pipe. No heat pipe without active cooling can put the CPU to a temperature below the vaporization temperature of the refrigerant, which has to be above room temperature for the gas to condense and recirculate. It might carry a lot of power, but the CPU won't be cold.
  5. As predicted, the no-league crusaders are out in force. They're entitled to their opinion and to express them. Personally, I agree with Don Dan - we should keep the leagues. This speaks to the need for a vote with wide participation. Note that one of the features of Benchmate is monitoring CPU temperature during the benchmark run. Perhaps temperature achieved - above/below 0C - could be used to place members in the proper league?
  6. I support all the things on the todo list, especially point revisions and integrating Benchmate. I'd like to help where I can. Please let me know.
  7. We need further clarification of allowed CPU in Div I. There are 12-core Ryzen and 16-core skt 2066 represented in the current submissions. Are these DT or HEDT?
  8. I wouldn't mind the 1030 again. Didn't mod it properly the first time, so I'd like to try the stuff I learned last year. Of course, doing that with another card would work as well.
  9. I favor seasonal points as they were last year - global, hardware and competition included. Year of a run can be confirmed by one of: (any one is sufficient) Benchmate 0.10.5 or later CPU-z 1.91+ CPU-z vintage version with a new skin a 2020 non-competition wallpaper the wallpaper prescribed for a 2020 contest
  10. I'm liking Benchmate better and better. The major thing I'd like to see is support of more benchmark programs. I've seen mention of x.265 and y-Cruncher and I'm a fan of both. I had run most of the benchmarks in 0.10.2 and wrote up a bug report, mostly about memory management. By the time I got here to post, there was 0.10.5 with the fixes. You must be really addicted to this. There is one thing I'm still seeing with 0.10.5: Start SuperPi, options and tweeks don't matter. Run - I did 1M and 32M both with the same results. Save results or not - no difference. First run everything works and the SuperPi window survives. After the second run in a given SuperPi window the score can still be saved or not - no difference. A saved score is done properly and I even submitted the one from the pictured run. When the "completed" popup is closed the error shown in the attachment shows up and the SuperPi window crashes when the error is closed. Happens every time at the second run in a given SuperPi window under Benchmate. Running SuperPi from the .../apps/SuperPiMod folder without Benchmate does not crash in that way. Operating system is Win 7 Pro 64 SP1. Enabled services are severely trimmed, so a missing service might have something to do with it.
  11. Also seems to be missing the rendered picture
  12. The crash on save in 3.2 happens when hwinfo has not been initialized. It needs to be initialized just once each time a GPUPI window is opened. After that once, hwinfo can be turned off for slightly faster runs. That score difference with high thread count could be fun to try to figure out.
  13. Is an audio channel operating? I got the same until it ran with an audio driver installed and the windows audio services running.
  14. Congrats to macsbeach98. Great job. It's been a good learning experience for me as I know it has been for others. Looking forward to a re-run next year.
  15. 5980X and others that use X99 chipset use socket 2011-1, which is not socket 2011. Ivy Bridge are the latest CPUs for socket 2011.
