  1. hehe. am now in Philippines which is not like Sweden except .... no OC-ers also. yeah maybe join the Team Canada as long as i can switch back in time for Icehockey world Cup hehe.
  2. Think so far all group/team stages i have been part of have been ok and generated interest in the Team even looking among members to see if they could join a stage as they had a complement in hardware. I do though think the Country cup need to be wider on newer hardware to get the right appeal.
  3. having joined Hwbot in 2014 i never even saw the "golden years" of OC thus the time before the Intel K processors. And yes the average joe now can get to 5G quite easily. Even so with help of profiles made by select users of HWbot. But then even with reaching 5G Oc and even if it was 50% more than regular clockspeed the score on Hwbot will still be 0.1 points. So if the average joe just did that across the CPU benchers he would amass the staggering amount of 2 points. Yet he has actually still overclocked the CPU quite some atleast for a beginner. it would probably have taken him some time as setting the XMP auto would probably have crashed the system more than the CPU oc if he invested in some higher speed ones. Meanwhile the system would surely not be optimized at that stage. Overall i like the point system except we should probably add a 0 more on the scores. to spend maybe 1 or 2 weeks going through all benchers on starting level and reach maybe 2 points is probably a not so good incentive to keep OC-ing for someone just testing it out. Meanwhile it seems that the competition scoring works better in that regard. I like the challenge and keep checking if the guys are catching me during a competition then i get back into it to see what did they do better. I already know the super good guys will be subbing 5 minutes before the competition closes to take all the big points and leave me with less learning in the process of what they did. As long as all who takes part in the competition get points for the yearly score thats fine. That also means that the guys why would otherwise be looking at their normal 2 point never grow atleast get some more in competition to trigger more interest. When I started OC was just looking how to optimize my new build at the time. I was over at overclocker.net and some guys were competing in the forum on unigine valley all using the GTX 780 and we just posted the screen shots of the scores and tried to get a better one. Think i did that for a week before i found HWbot. So far i think this year has been the most interesting as i like the concept of starting from 0 while also having an overall career score. I also think that concept can generate more interest (except maybe not son on 0.1 pointers) this is a long way to say no OC is surely not dead nor dying.and maybe now with AMD closing in Intel will have the incentive to open up more processors to OC. Meanwhile the two above points might help to retain some who actually joins in first time.
  4. am cross reading the thread on is OCing dead thread which is interesting and then looking at this country cup. The last few months i have spent collecting hardware 1156, 1155, 1150 that to add to my 1151 v1 1151v2, 2011-v3, 2066. Today I bought an AMD 5700XT so I atleast could have a decent score in the pro section just closing as there is so much locking between AMD and Nvidia GPU's in stages. To get hardware for me means ordering from abroad normally china. among those 1156, 1155,1150 i have now around 25 odd CPU's that i have not even started playing with yet. If i kept all hardware i had since i got introduced to computers in 1980 i could have had all the old legacy but simply dont. Meanwhile to go back in time makes it more complicated with the operating systems. Hmm i cant even find a Ps/2 keyboard around here. If I then look at the amount of Swedes taking part in any OC its probably only Rauf more or less active besides me and am not sure he will take part in a country cup. Meanwhile there could probably be some newcomers/oc-gamers that could join in if there were more opportunities in the newer hardware areas. Then I look at the below country cup list and see that I cant take part in more than half of the overall country cup stages while having 7 different platforms and anything from 2- 14 Cores. I think that is a bit of a challenge when we then discuss the level of participation. I would probably propose to have a country cup more focused on the Win 7, win 10 platforms and then have a proper legacy cup. I do very much appreciate what the team is spending in time and effort putting these competitions together and it has helped me learn a lot about my hardware as well as software in optimizations. Pifast: LGA1366 - Bloomfield core (Xeons allowed) (4 scores) Wprime 1024: AMD Deneb - (4 scores) Superpi 32M LGA775 - 7x multiplier - (4 scores) HWBOT X265 1080P AMD 1-3-4-5 cores - (4 scores) BCLCK INTEL per socket (socket 1151V2 = V3) - (4 scores) CB R15 CPU (Single core test) - (AMD only) (4 scores) Y-cruncher 1B - per socket (4 scores) 3DMark06: AGP/PCI/PCIe & Hybrid GPUs - (4 scores) 3DMark03: Intel Integrated graphics - Sandy/Ivy/Haswell/Skylake/Kabylake & Coffeelake CPUs - (4 scores) 3DMark 11 Performance - SLI or Crossfire - AMD FX Bulldozer/Vishera CPUs - (4 scores) CATZILLA 576P AMD GPUs & AM3/4 CPUs --> win7 only - (4 scores) Cloud Gate GTX 470/570/670/770/970/1070 GPUs only - (6 scores) 3DMark Skydiver - (4 scores) 3DMark Firestrike Ultra - Dual GPU cards only - (4 scores)
  5. does this mean we can use 9900K for 3d2001se or not? not sure what to consider HEDT in this scenario also seeing an AMD processor in the mix.
  6. Thanks for very good explanation and for taking on the challenge to actually make an even playing field without dubious clocks. Indeed we cant assume shit. Then ofcourse it does not help that some Motherboard manufacturer create pause button to freeze a run so parameters can be changed mid way in a benchmark run....
  7. bclk is what i have seen never 100% steady on any motherboard. and it is I assume based on the RTC. The crystal used is for this is old style and has never been 100% stable. to have a stable clock you would need a more expensive temperature controlled oscillator circuit that simply is never used on motherboards but on certain high specked radio transceivers/receivers. Cheaper MBs thus most often end up with a bclk just below 100 Mhz as i guess they select even cheaper crystals. The frequency 32768 Hz (32.768 KHz) is commonly used, because it is a power of 2 (215) value. And, you can get a precise 1 second period (1 Hz frequency) by using a 15 stage binary counter. which is not so precise compared to what the HPET solution gives. I assumed the HPET will make sure to keep the scoring correct despite such clock variations? both BCLK and Cores varies if using all the intel turbo features. Or do I understand this completely wrong?
  8. are we allowed to use the AMD 5700XT cards in this stage or what is the latest AMD gpu allowable
  9. Fully agree with the original post by Splave. lets have Benchmate formalized for submissions with win10. trying to get new hardware to run Win 7 is seemingly not going to work. Spent enough time trying.
  10. ahh my old trusty maximus Viii extreme can only run single channel memory.. sighhh.
  11. 🙂 no worries.. The team putting together the competitions are creative 🙂 Meanwhile getting a few more CPU's
  12. My team team rankings tab don't work. It shows the initial intended page when loaded but instantly then jump to My team my wall tab instead. Tested in Chrome and Brave.
  13. would be fun if we had some separation between threads and cores in some stages so we could use the true CPUs that dont use the threads also. i got a few of 4,6,8 cores to add to the mix .
  14. Great Score. Would appreciate if you could mention what kind cooling you run for this.
  15. Thanks for another great competition. I think the benchmate is a great tool and to finally be able to use Win 10 for some submissions are great. Meanwhile some scores will still be better on win 7 as win 10 is inherently more bloated. Dry ice finished and need to focus on work :-)
  16. Hehe i hate these galax 4000 mem.. there is no way to do T1 to start with. Meanwhile one of my g.skils have gone to greener pastures in memory heaven sigh. and i cant buy fast ram in manila..... they are stuck on 3200 mhz in shops. so do what might work hehe
  17. Yes i edited manufacturer Galax in those subs immediately but it did not trigger a change to show mem freq. as you explain. It however does on other sub screens.
  18. I just ran some memory Frequency subs. When uploading the sub there is no way to actually set the memory frequency in the memory section. thus it can only be entered in the score field. It then looks weird as all my memory speeds show up as 4202 Mhz for some reason.
  19. Geek bench starts as 32 bit but I select 64 bit inside. The problem i had was anything listed as 32 bit in benchmate would not start. now they do. Thus I believe the service will capture it right. I believe my issue is gone as i cant replicate it anymore even after now 4 reboots. Meanwhile if i run Geekbench4 in 32 bit more i loose about 600 or so points on single core performance.
  20. No, i run it just like its set up 🙂 meanwhile after 2 re-boots the behaviour is gone?! no win update in between i like this benchmate though. kudos to Matt 🙂
  21. The 0.8 version works to run all tests but 0.8.1 i can not start geekbench3 nor geekbench4 as it only show 32 bit versions and says its starting service which never start. Get same issue if trying to start cpuz 32 bit.. Works fine in 0.8 so can we please use 0.8 version also? or we will need a fix Im running on my standard 7940x setup with normal watercooling and updated Win 10
  22. thanks for great competition :-) cant do more with my dry ice.
  23. 3dmark has issues on their score page. it validates scores but you cant see the scores after thus cant get the link for upload.
