  1. My 2cents. This team cup has great amount of variety of challenges for DDR types which is great. But the amount of restrictions on CPU platforms/core count included and in combination with that GPUs is simply mind boggling. It alienates just about anyone except the 0.1% in HWbot. Ofcourse i can always take part in the Laptop DDR4 category. Then that teamcup is done and yes one submission on an X99 platform also. I think this is reflective of the amount of participation there seems to be, a few scattered subs her and there . This should not be called a team cup but the "obscure old farts remembering the old days cup" ;-) (mind you im not that young but this is too narrow.)
  2. Yes this is my Hyper X 1600 timing wise they work better than the geil and ripjaws i have on the DDR3
  3. I am using an XP image that works on the Asmedia 1061 SATA ports on the Z390 so that part i think is done. I have both Kabylake-x and Skylake X CPU. I have tried bios 1.21, 1.07, X03. no solution so far. Will give up on that for now but if anyone eventually find a solution please share 🙂
  4. Great Score. What is it you have poured on the Aqua MB.I am still looking for a good solution for my dry ice benching.
  5. Has anyone gotten a WinXP friendly bios for the EVGA X299 Dark? there are no hints on neither the EVGA site nor the xDevs for the same.
  6. I have had the weirdest issue on Heaven basic on the various runs i tried this week but i have not found the workaround yet. I At the beginning it has its difficult staggering as is normal but in the cases i see it simply start going negative in FPS and redo the same first 3 seconds of the run in endless loop. its the same as mentioned above in that if I actually started the heaven software itself it actually works.
  7. Completely agree that we need the different leagues. Yes its difficult to catch a Formula 1 team cheating or the continuous doping cases around the world but the fact is also that being able to compare with people who relatively have a similar setup actually helps build the interest in OC-ing. Noting on day one of a new processor release that all world records are broken by professional teams might have an interest for the core few who then have a target to try take down the next 2 months but it does not encourage the new or general mass of OCers. It probably just mean that their scores will be 0.01 of something never achievable. I joined and took part in the rookie roundups and still remember ending up 3rd place in what 2014. Atleast i could compete with people who had similar skill level. Now i keep checking what cooling the next guy up the rank has on each spot as i know if its LN2 then i have reached the max ( usually as i have taken down some of those too with my Dry ice.) This goes for any sport. The lightning Bolt might have a world record but he sure dont have the Swedish 100 meter record nor the county record or my old school record from grades 3 - 7. Some other guys have beaten those and that is perfectly ok as it was in similar circumstances, though now i am sure they have better surface on the track and shoes that does half the running for them 😉 and i cant call that cheating. The combination of leagues and competitions with frequency set as we have now is great. I use the competitions to see how close i can get to the real guru's in fine tweaking. Especially the ones that submit scores during the competition and not just the last few seconds help me improve my own scores in the competition first and then when i let my hardware loose separately on the chiller or dry ice I can hopefully improve my hardware scores and maybe a global or two after the new found learning in the process. Even more fun when some of the Guru's actually noticed the score and give words of encouragement before showing how its done 🙂 that's what builds and refresh a community. When I cooled my computers with air and basic AIO its one set of limitations and cost and maybe even dunking the pump in ice water. This means rookies and enthusiasts can have fun also take part in the competitions if getting reasonable points for being 50% above the normal hardware settings and getting reasonably higher scores that is a great achievement. With the chiller down to +3 or so its another. I use this most of the time now but the electricity bill looks thereafter 🙂 about 200 USD a month just for my computer stuff. With the dry ice at 70 USD for 20 kg which give me good fun on a weekend on Z390 platform or half that time on the X299 and i might be lucky and get a few 30 pointers here and there. I would have loved to go on LN2 but simple fact is it would be illegal to bring it in to the condo and am sure many others would face same restrictions around the globe. But yes i keep my hardware so maybe one day hehe when i move ill find a more conducive place for exactly that reason. Before that sorry no Formula 1 competing for me. Meanwhile its great that its a global reach on this OC community as so far i have not found any real community in Philippines nor Uganda and it seems the one in Sweden consists of RAUF and....
  8. Hi Maddmutt. i dont know what it is. I keep trying but fail on 4000 and 12 T1 for some reason on all MB's so i guess its the user hehe but if you can send me your other timings and voltages maybe i can test it out. Would love to maximize the efforts
  9. Simply love the Z390 Dark. First ever MB to simply apply XMP 4600 profile and it just works. No special bios. no voltage tweaks no nothing just. XMP and go. I still have several Asus boards including XI Extreme and Z390I gaming and a random selection of Maximus X but still first ever board to just work with 4600 Ram XMP. And indeed as marco.is.not.80 Mention. its a work of engineering art:-) Infact it would also boot XMP profile at 4800 Mhz also thus 200 Mhz higher than Ram spec without doing anything except raising clock. I found the same on the X299 Dark also. that means solid engineering:-)
  10. Hi i have uploaded a lot of scores the last 60 hours. Normally scores refresh atleast every 24 hours. I am not considering the competition scores here as i know it might follow a different pattern. Meanwhile i see it is the same for other users including Elite so i am not alone but its not fun uploading with no change.. Regards,
  11. hi can you confirm no link is needed for the 3dmark06 as then i will stop uploading the same too :-)
  12. just to confirm are we allowed to turn off cores in this division :-)
  13. ? the rules does not specify which fields must be included Max clock/cache speed of 3803Mhz monitored by HWinfo32/64 readout (running in the background during the run) did i miss anything in my subs?
  14. Hi, Since i keep my hardware i keep re-running some old hardware or in the case of my 5960X the first one died before i even got dry ice so bought a used one. Now i have another G3258 that i am playing around with. On several occasions I have seen that i have empty slot when i look at my hardware pages. Thus it looks like i did not run or even submitted scores for benchmarks. Thus i run a bench and then upload only to then be told 0 points by the system as there is an old submission that suddenly appear also with 0 points and no ranking. when i then hit referesh i suddenly get hardware points back on my first submission that was made in 2014 as an example. It has happened to me now about 10 different times which is a bit annoying. Today i had this issue when running wprime1024.. managed to only get a score of 6.55 minutes or something only to find a hidden score of 6 mins 17 seconds that actually should have had a hardware point rating of 3 points. which it now do.. it does not matter which pages i look at in my profile i would never have found it unless i actually submitted a new score in the same bench. is there a solution to fix such?
