    hwbot "classic" rev8

    These spamming results make categories popular bringing more points for the first place.

    HWBOT does not work?

    I wouldn't do this. UAT uses a database taken from original hwbot and I don't think syncing this "outdated" (let it be 2-3 days older before hwbot went offline) to the main db is a good idea etc. They will have a lot of issues when rev8 goes to public so another syncing task should be avoided if possible. Anyway, why can't you wait a day or two?

    A7N8X-E Deluxe as an alternative for socket 462

    Okay, I have tested this mod. Setup is as follows: Corsair XMS3200LL, 2x256MB BH-5 based - capable of 268MHz with my FX57. Random A-XP 2500+ A7N8X-E Deluxe (3.5Vdimm via hardmod, 1.9Vnb via hardmod, 2.1Vcpu via hardmod) - ceramics/tantals added to socket and nb (this was needed to enhance stability a bit), small radiators are on top of cpu mosfets as they got hot (not extreme temperatures though). Air cooling for NB and ram. Bios used is 1013-1T from Trats with dfi 4-19 romsips. I wasn't yet able to get full stability above 260MHz FSB with 1T bios but the board still performs strong and I believe is on par with tweaked NF7/AN7 on same settings.
  5. Shouldn't work - I remember R15 requires something like SSE3 or AMD64 compatible hardware - so even Northwood won't run it.

    Which socket 370 motherboard?

    TUSL2-C is natively compatible with tualatin core, CUSL2 requires mods to hardware to run tualatins. On the other hand, TUSL2 won't run mendocino celerons. I would pick TUSL2 of these two boards. Mendocino celerons are not that popular. Another challenge will be to get the following 2 things: IDE-SATA adaptor (to allow high fsb overclocks - native IDE drives won't let you overclock more than 20-30% in a lot of cases) and good memory that is able to go >200MHz CL2-2-2 (that is Quimonda chips of >2007 production - memory performance is crucial with s370). And probably you should also have several AGP cards as it also may limit your overclock (however, most simple agp cards as GF2MX, GF4MX should allow agp overclocking over 100MHz from stock 66MHz and the problem may be overclocking of AGP over 127-130MHz). You can look for Gigabyte 6OXET as alternative - these are rather difficult to find but they should be cheaper being considered garbage by many second hand resellers. I was able to hit even more stable overclocks with it but killed it during research.

    Will try to do that with cheap 200Khz osc. Should also go with SS this weekend as all other mods (except cap replacement) are now in place.
  8. I like the idea that we share OS info but it would be nice not to have another app/window to show OS info. Maybe cpu-z may have another textbox on main window to meet this requirement?
  9. Hi all I wasn't lucky with Abit for sA benchmarking - they never survived more than a few days (had several ones, ones I remember were fully modded from moose83 and stock one from Ananerbe). I also had no luck with Epox boards. Many other boards either don't have mounting holes near socket or miss good/custom bioses. The board that was almost flawless for me is Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe - it has a bunch of modded bioses (thanks Scotty!) and I never had bios corruption issues with it. But it has a major flaw that is killing this board for most of the benchers - no 12V cpu power connector, so it uses 5V rail for cpu vrm. I was using external vrm to avoid this problem but this approach also have certain problems and is not always available for many of us. Anyway, with NB mod, this board is able to hit >250MHz fsb with tight timings which makes it strong alternative for NF7/AN7. Yesterday I made a simple mod to power cpu vrm from 12V. All you need is to remove/replace stock 6.3v capacitors and coil, solder 12V rail from PSU to the input of VRM: I have used 12V connector desoldered from the dead mobo and made a ground connection from connector as well: I have tested it to boot 200x11 yesterday and the mosfets are cool (and it should be quite easy to cover these with radiator). Further steps are NB/SB cooling, Vcore mod, Vnb mod, Vdimm mod which are well known. I will also resolder a 12V connector to a different location as the above shown version was just the fastest one for testing purposes. Although the board is 2-phase design, mosfets are powerful enough (I was benching stock board with 2700MHz 2V barton and the weak point was the 5V rail of my PSU) so current should not be an issue even with higher overclocks. Anyway, A7N8X-E should be WAY easier to find and 5V rail issues will no longer be a limit. Good luck with this nice board :)
  10. Let's keep xtu as intel-friendly global points benchmark and keep globals for amd only in x265:) PS. I was never happy with intel-only xtu getting globals.
  11. What a mess is with all those "new" benchmarks Thanks Noxinite, will rebench it tomorrow.
  12. What version of GPUPI is allowed? I just got 6.37.987 in stage 3 but is this because of my wrong use of 3.3.2?
