The official GIGABYTE BIG XTU Challenge Round 1: Z97 2 cores thread.

Recommended Posts

So for this round, all the 10 stages is only 2 core CPU's only with air/watercooling with temps above 25C??

 

just need some clarification please :)

I am having this issue when trying to submit my score :( ==> Invalid data file: Data file does not contain an XTU Profile authentication.

15-45.??

 

And I thought running XTU on 2 Cores @ 4.5Ghz was slow & time consuming.

This is going to be like watching paint dry.

pro tip, score as low as you can in current stage

 

Damn that last one drove me crazy. Managed to get 81.77Mhz but result didnt lower. Relaxing Ram timings resulted in "benchmarking process has failed" also the same with playing with Clock Modulation.

What was we supposed to hit in last one?

my setup don't like low BLCK.

was abel to run one time at 88.9 and never agen.so traid other strategie ,xtu whit other progs to slow system down but xtu don't like this.

XTU 5.1 is very picky, it seems 4.4 is far better. I assumed its not allowed, because its outdated but apparently it works. Just finished a Run with 87,75% clock modulation which results in 18 Points.

grrr

Why not run several programs at once guys :)

 

That was the first thing I thought of but running a second program side by side is crashing the benchmark process. You really have to extremely reduce bclk and tweak to steal some cpu cycles with programs without letting XTU crash. Taking into account that one run takes up to one hour this was for sure the hardest stage of the competition.

Well its over. One hour after dead time I also got 18 points. But too late. Congrats to Coldest for winning this.

Yup, this was it what I talked about. Really wondered how I could win that stage. I knew that Coldest made his entries earlier than me. Though, I didnt understand the rules correctly. I always thought in case of a tie, submission in first stage would determine who wins.

 

Anyway, thx Gigabyte for this great Competition.
