The Official Country Cup 2018 thread

Recommended Posts

For the Night Raid submission, it says valid UL link. Is unapproved driver an allowed exception? I don't understand why the driver for my board which has been up since August hasn't been tested/approved, it's an official driver, not a beta.

For stage 9 and 10 a Futuremark verification link is required and must be VALID at UL website

Apparently not. Valid link required...

Question 1:  For the reference score, Frrderik has to figure out why it bugs if I select Socket of the motherboard, 

6 different socket types (thus read 6 different mobos) are required...  I hope it will be fixed soon...

 

Night Raid: If it's only a non approved driver I can live with it, but no LOD or other tweaks...

Thanks, that's reasonable. They have always been lax on drivers IMO

Now that it's been over 48hrs since the background change it's worrying me that some buggy "first half" submissions are still up in the air:

  1. My  406 MHz AM3 BCLK sub not counting because of the CPU socket vs. motherboard socket mixup in in that stage. It's a tough one because the rules actually still state the CPU socket counts but @Leeghoofd made the call earlier in this thread that it should be motherboard socket - can we have clarity once and for all on this matter? 👍

 

@unityofsaints, you should try recalc you ref freq score, macs has put up a s754 entry that trumps his AM2+/AM3 score so your AM3 score should count now but last time I checked it wasn't showing even though the score it's still entered in the comp...

Tried that, didn't work.

That's rubbish. I reckon even though macs has a better score on a different socket than his old score with AM2+ board/AM3 CPU, it's blocking yours anyway.

Well that's not how it's actually working at present. I guess it will be fixed before the end. 👍

It's still broken (it seems...).

I just uploaded my AM3-Score (AM3-CPU with AM3-motherboard) and a result with AM3+-motherboard and AM3-CPU dropped out.

 

Did I read it correct that as long as we use an AM3-Board (Gigabyte GA-890FXA-UD5) and an AM3+-Board (ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z) both scores should count for stage 3 even if they both are achieved with an AM3-CPU?!

But they're two different sockets? 1151v1 and 1151v2?

Tell Hwbot that...........

Nope the AMDs are not the same socket... LGA1151 will remain one socket... might make it more interesting...

just to clarify, cpu socket, not motherboard socket, is it right? About AMD AM3/3+ FM2/2+ and so on :)

Depends on the benchmark, reference frequency score is about the mobo socket, all the other 2D stages are about CPU socket... but there's no distinction for 1151 and 1151v2

When did this change? It was discussed many times previously in and out of this thread and we were always told 1151v1 and 1151v2 were separate sockets?

You're going to change the rules halfway through the comp?
I'm done.

Look I can't implement myself  the 1151V2 in the DBase, so my hands are tied to my back... This change has been requested a few times already since the compo started, till now nothing has been added...  so it seems 1151 stays as one CPU socket...

Also the FSB ref is still not properly working as it should... as it crashes the compo totally if Motherboard socket is selected for that stage...sigh...

I really wanna rebench multiple submissions for no reason right around Christmas and New Year's, thanks guys. The problem with this place is that everyone complains about petty things all the time so when actual screwups happen it's like the boy who cried wolf.
