Trying to submit to HWBot and I get this error.  Tried switching between my username and email as a login. Firewall is not blocking.

Submission thread running: 0x00000000000009F8
New submission update status: Connecting to hwbot.org (5%)
Could not connect to HWBOT for user authentication: SSL connect error
Authentication failed with error: Connection error => SSL connect error
Submission update error: Could not authenticate with hwbot.org!

Error:Connection error => SSL connect error

How do I get my submissiong through?

Did you try to sub manually ? Via the Submit score and afterwards selecting the benchmark at HWBOT page ?

Yes, there is a problem with the hwbot certificate on your system. It has a fairly new root or intermediate certificate from their certificate provider, iirc.

Normally this happens if the bench os has not been updated in a long time, or hasn't had an internet connection in a while. Many certificates in the Windows certificate store won't be valid anymore and that breaks the certificate chains. The easiest way is to update.

I tried to solve it in the manual BenchMate installation but failed to fix it. I will try again soon.

Easiest way to fix this is to install updates.

I can submit manually, but I would prefer through the BenchMate. Is there any idea on what the error might be? Is there maybe some problem with my SSL certificates?

Definately broken om W7. You can also just copy paste the results folder to another system which is up to date

FYI: New BenchMate 11 Beta version is ready, but it will take 3 to 5 business days to release it. Microsoft has added a mandatory additional account verification to sign drivers and is now vetting my business. As soon as that's done it will be available for download.

This is the changelog for the new version:


    - You can finally bench AMD RX 6x00 series graphics cards and hopefully RX 7x00 cards as well. The Reduction Size needs to be set to 256, because these cards have limited shared memory available.
    - GPUPI for CPU now works with Intel OpenCL 3.0 runtime. It's the latest runtime that can be downloaded without registration: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/developer/articles/technical/intel-cpu-runtime-for-opencl-applications-with-sycl-support.html
    - Added multiple tweak options:
        - OpenCL Math Optimizations: Disabled, Safe, Unsafe, Fast - if you encounter a precision error, the OpenCL runtime does not work with that level of optimization.
        - Intel OpenCL Vectorizer: Enabled (Default), Disabled - gives you control over the automatic loop vectorization for CPUs (you will be surprised that Intel's default is actually slower)
        - Intel OpenCL Vectorizer Mode - fine-grained control of the width for the vectorization, if enabled
        - Intel OpenCL Instruction Set: Auto (Default), SSE4.2, AVX, AVX2, AVX512 - Auto will set the highest possible set, be sure to select Auto or at least AVX if you have enabled the Vectorizer
        - Intel OpenCL Loop Unroll Factor - higher value might be better
    - BenchMate now hooks the underlying Intel Embree raytracing framework for better error detection. If the raytracing workload reports an error, the run will correctly be flagged as invalid. This fixes the long-time CB bug that shows very high scores when the workload was not completely rendered due to an error (mostly because of a maxmem setting).
    - Added new options to apply a selected Instruction Set Architecture (ISA) and the Frequency Level. This allows to make use of a specific instruction set like AVX, SSE 4.2 etc.
    - BenchMate's internal run measurement now starts closer to the workload for better average measurements (ie: wattage)
    - Added an option for a run confirmation dialog like in Super PI
    - Improved anti-tampering support by verifying all loaded plugin dlls
- y-cruncher
    - Support for version 0.8.1
    - Added thread count to CLI wrapper options: All Threads (BenchMate), All Threads (y-cruncher), 1 Thread.
      It defaults to BenchMate's thread count detection to utilize all threads. This automatically fixes a y-cruncher bug that detects 48 threads on 7900X resulting in slower runs. This might affect other AM5 CPUs as well (not the 7950X though).
    - Experimental bugfix for several warnings that need user input to continue
- Super PI now validates the number of loops that are calculated
- Added AMD Unsafe tweaks for Vermeer to wPrime and all CINEBENCH versions

Features & Improvements

- Improved installer speed
- Added new result dialog theme: Noctua
- Various visual improvements for result dialogs
    - Improved text readability by using Lato as list text font
    - Added validation/warning icons for detected CPU name and bus-dependent frequencies
    - Added black icon set for ASRock AQUA and Noctua theme
    - Improved rendering of benchmark names
    - Improved rendering of Options/Tweaks by using multiple lines, if necessary
- Added SMBIOS support to improve security with spoofing of CPUID brand strings. If data from CPUID and SMBIOS is different, both will be displayed in the result dialog to help with moderation.
- Added CPU architecture and CPUID family, model and stepping to result dialog to help with the identification of CPUs
- Using SMBIOS to supply full core and thread count on CPUs with disabled cores
- Implemented new NUMA Windows API to support new multi-group node-affinity of Sapphire Rapids (Windows 11 only)
- Improved error message for HWBOT uploads that respond with HTTP error code 403 due to the CPU or GPU missing in the HWBOT Submission API database
- Removed F7 hotkey (flush cache) in favor of CPU-Z's hotkey to save a validation file
- Improved detection of unknown Windows 10 and 11 versions
- Updated HWiNFO to version 7.51 (fixes Command Rate detection on AM5, improved support for RTX 40x0 GPUs, ...)
- Updated tools: HWiNFO 7.50, CPU-Z 2.0.6, GPU-Z 2.54

Internal changes

- Added support to detect AMD Meltdown/Spectre mitigation flags and log them to client.log (or the Debug Console in BenchMate). This will be useful in an upcoming version of BenchMate.
- Improved detection of CPU models higher than Skylake to determine if QPC/LAPIC timer is a safe option
- Detect Hygon Dhyana as Zen-based CPU


- Fixed bug with missing cpu short names of Ryzen ES CPUs in the result list
- Fixed GPUPI frozen on startup with Korean language setting (thx safedisk)
- Fixed detection of Windows Server 2022

opencl 2023 is no longer available. where can I find the link
