  1. I see no rules detailing the number of GPUs we are permitted to use. Is CrossFireX permitted?
  2. Just figure out the threading on the retention mechanism holes for the stock cooling and use those holes to mount pots to LGA2011. Will have to take a look at it in the future but I'm sure there's a way we can mount pots to that thing.
  3. Retired all my X58 boards and CPUs to crunching/bitcoin operations. My LGA1156 boards are only a few months from being there too. I don't care if Bulldozer performance positively blows, I just want a different experience.
  4. Shame to see that startup limit still in place. Hopefully the new rules will yield a revival of PCM05. Now.. PCM 7? We need moar system benches.
  5. Except for those with 180L dewars dumping into their pots
  6. I'm all for opening this benchmark up. It is a given that pro will hack the shit out of windows to maximize the scores but isn't that the goal of benchmarking? Most performance possible regardless? If that isn't then we might want to reconsider our unhealthy LN2 consumption habits. I think you are mistaken. Encoder tweaks(which powertoy just makes easy) is like training at 10,000 feet for a marathon at sea level.
  7. I'd like to see all the caps removed from the benchmark. I have mixed feelings on the HDD tests being run in RAID card cache but they are at least partially limited by the PCIe bus and all the latencies involved with that. All the tweaks I've found/learned from others/heard about are software tweaks that provide greater performance to the subtest. AFAIK nobody is outright circumventing a test. They're just providing more efficient or faster ways to perform something. Also, why haven't we brought PCM7 into the fold yet? It is a fun benchmark and we need more system benchmarks that don't completely depend on a cherry CPU/GPU.
  8. Good luck guys. Look forward to seeing how the chips fall. *grumble* Had to calculate your GPU clocks. Looks like you found some nice tweaks with a GPU at 1350/1200. Next time just don't show the GPU-Z tab
  9. Then I'd say you should recognize the uselessness of complaining about the Expander. It sucks that it is effectively a limited production part but if something as game changing as ES CPUs isn't handled then why would the Expander be addressed? There's an 800 lb gorilla relaxing in the corner while the spider monkey is having poo flung at it
  10. You guys are making your teams look bad. Last I checked our hobby is not MMA. Stay classy guys. I feel like of all the issues that we could be getting up in arms about the ASUS ROG Expander is the least of our problems. So what, someone can use their RIIIE in quad-SLI with the introduction of a pair of NF-200 switches and another PCB. Compared to the other quad-SLI options on the market there is no performance difference. However, how about the fucking monster 990X ES chips being used? 1-2% performance difference due to BIOS has got nothing on a 10% frequency difference on the processor. Just a thought.. perhaps we're all rabble rabble rabbling about the wrong issue?
  11. Sandybridge flexing a little muscle. Oh, nice GPU also You know how they say it isn't the size that counts? I think they are incorrect.
