  1. I was reading this thread and became curious. Every time I run Parallel pi, my 8700k jumps to 100% or high 90's load, no matter the priority. Perhaps a bios setting would allow it to run at half load that I'm not aware of. Leeghoofd would understand this better than me, but this does show the beauty of software like Bench Mate for competitions with restrictions. Very nice indeed, IMO
  2. Not yet. Haven't been able to find any time this past year but hopefully real soon. That nice pot you gave me is still waiting.
  3. Strong Island, was just browsing for fun, nothing in my budget right now. Posting to say hope all is well with you. Surprised to see you selling all your stuff. You are one of the best imo - killing it whenever you put your mind to it from all the subs I saw.
  4. Ya, really was nice of him. A great example of "pay it forward" and the camaraderie sometimes found here at HWbot. I'm thinking Jason deserves some great karma to fall his way.
  5. After a grueling day at work (ok, it wasn't that bad), I stumbled upon a beautiful package at my front door, sent to me by that class guy you all know as GtiJason. Thanks again Jason, found the little goodie package inside along with the EK pot as well. Like Christmas here. Three cheers to you.
  6. That's fantastic and packed up like new. Very much appreciated Jason
  7. That would be awesome and much appreciated. Pm incoming
  8. My condolences on the 7700k and hope you are able to purchase another one just as good. I can relate as many of us are on a tight budget with regards to our love of benching but we push the bunny extraction out of them anyway. I'm looking forward to *attempting* to delid mine, as I think its a decent sample - (50/45 1.85 - 52/45 1.29 cb 15 ??) and learn how to use dry ice. Should be fun. I'll see you in Apprentice when you get there.
  9. Come over from the dark side Luke. You will find peace
  10. Hello Fasttrack and other Apprentice peeps. Hope you don't mind me joining you guys. Glad to be aboard. Hilderman`s HWBOT Prime score: 7491.75 pps with a Core i7 7700K
  11. Just stumbled on this thread last night. Read all 14 pages and was reminded of the sour taste this whole ambient debate brought out in me last fall during the MSI Ambient contest. I spent way to much time at my keyboard trying to get the mods to clear away the grey area to no avail, and in the process forgot the pure enjoyment that benching had brought me in the past. The prizes were big $, based on my budget, but the grey area involved in ambient destroyed the enjoyment and brought out a side of me I didn't like. The result of that debacle was a ruined cpu and a very negative attitude, although I did win an MSI hat, keychain, notebook and an open bench table - (open bench table is great, thank you MSI). I haven't bothered to compete since, other than the Geekbench memory challenge, which was a lot of fun, and the Country Cup in Dec. Maybe I'm just a whiney, sore loser, and clearly need to eat a few more Snickers. Whatever the case, that was my experience. After reading this thread, I'd like to remove myself from the Enthusiast class and challenge any of my "class-mates" to move to Apprentice as well. Perhaps there should be a time limit of some sort to stay in Enthusiast. Anyways, Websmile, or Christian, what is the process to change to Apprentice, and can anyone recommend a budget friendly pot for purchase? It's time for me to learn about cold. Please excuse my lengthy post.
  12. Great job, you've got the non-k xtu mastered. Keep up the good work.
  13. Late to the party, but happy to have picked up this card to experiment with. Has an ASIC value of 83.1%. Thank you to Xtreme Addict, Elmor, and many others for this wealth of knowledge that you have passed on. I'm having errors attempting to flash to the ln2 bios you recommend (version 3 or 4) using nvflash latest version. LN2 pad is soldered/shorted. Can you pass on any thoughts or tips to what I may be doing wrong? Windows 10 64
  14. Wow, cant wait to find one on the store shelves. Looks fantastic
