Thank for the comp, GRIFF! As always, didn't have enough time. Running Pi32M. Will post to forum, anyway it's the last place and wouldn't change anything in rankings so just FYI.

I regret no subs from me due to not being able to find a running board anywhere. Ordered 2 off ebay, both arrived in non working state.

Kinda bummed about that. :(

I feel like the Sis board was more efficient somehow...

Might just be that the MSI board was a pain to get working :(

Yep, SiS is a very nice chipset. I've been considering to use one of my SiS 735 boards but found KT266A to be better.

But what did you change the registers for having a boost of performance?

Since you have hot systems, I give you two clues:
register 50 set ED
register 51 set D5
register 52 set 88
register 64,65,66,67 set 13

 

Works on any VIA chipset starting from socket 7

Not KT - 50-52 are not host bus like on others but are S2K, bus disconnect and others things. But yes, on other systems (s7, 370, 478) these are the main ones.

of course. And 1T set as well.

Timings set from BIOS, command rate set via registers. Nothing else - didn't give much boost. KT266A is faster by itself than KT266 and I believe than SiS 735.

Hi everyone.  Quickly checking the results even before the end of the competition I realized that the background of @Skydec is that of the first round.  In theory his results of pifast, super 32M and 3DM01 are not valid.  The problem I encountered is that on the Leaderboard page there is only a background of the first round.  What do you do?

Hi.

Sorry I was not able to rerun my tests, I had a lot of work to do in my free time during last month, thats why I benched and posted my results as soon as the competiton started.

Competition started on 15th, I benched on 17th and 18th and posted results on 18th. The official round 2 background was posted on 19th. I used the available round 1 background as it was the only one available at the time. 

All my results from round 2 are with round 1 background.

Being that it at least had a backround current for the time of the contest, and we all know each other, I don't see this as a problem.

Hope I'm not the only one that see's it like that. We are a very small group, we need to stick together. No need to be cut throat.

Sorry I haven't had a chance to look at this yet. As Scott said this is meant to be a friendly cup, and if it was because I was too slow uploading a 2nd background, happy to treat he results however you guys would like :)

Thank you GRIFF. We should probably proceed with this type of contests (no prizes necessary) :)
