HWBOT 2020 Make it great again Thread:


Recommended Posts

  • Crew

So for those that slept the last months under a rock, it is sort off official that HWBOT ownership has passed on from the original developper Frederik to the Thermal Grizzly company. 

Before continuing I would like to thank Frederik and the staff ( or whats left of it ) to have kept the Bot up and running, especially for the last year. 

I've had several phonecalls with the new owners and they stressed the Bot will remain a free service to the OC community. The main goal is to preserve the database, fix initially some major bugs and revise the current point calculation.

Now everything will take time and there will prolly not be a huge overhaul but we would like to hear your input on things. 

These discussions have been held before, but some of the previous decision makers are no longer amongst us and maybe time to revise some stuff.


UPDATE 09/01/2020: Full Transfer is not yet completed. Hopefully the new programmer has full access to the code soon!

Update 27/10/2020: Time to get stuff fixed :)

Definitely most of the 'about' hwbot needs updating, from benchmark rules to who the 'staff' are etc.

Now seems like the time to implement/change the way the leagues work since there's already going to be some confusion, just get it all done with at once ? (single league or rookie/general/elite ftw)

Make achievments happen. First to hit 9 ghz, first to hit 5 ghz on mems etc

Like feats of strenght on the profile. Better than you made 100 subs with g.skill, buhuu.

Will love to see who the first to hit 9 ghz lol, just imagine that there is an fx chip somewhere rotting away in an OEM machine that's never been cleaned but if given some lhe and an expert touch could hit 9001

Yep mate, the old ones are no longer cutting it. I would love to have one how to bench at HWBot. Analysis first of what hardware are we benching, which benchmark then choosing the right OS and co... But we need some sort of script to follow to make sure everything has been mentioned

  • Joe will do one with how to use and submit with Benchmate

Just let me know @Leeghoofd I can record and upload to youtube, record and send to whomever, or just live stream and link the vod. Just DM me either here or on Discord and I will do what I can

Thats a great Idea! I can edit those vids of you. I also planed to record x-oc or maybe stream.

Thx great job so far, 

some typos left and right: (verion, samample,...)

  • I would only talk about the big version with included Matt approved bench set
  • The "With benchmate categories" will dissapear because they will be merged with the exisiting ones, as it is too confusing for the users.
  • Submissions will still require 2 - 3 (for compos)  CPU-Z windows to make moderation and comparison easier
  • Thus show them manual submission by the benchmate made screenshot only  (as I have no clue when full integration by datafile will be done)

Thx heaps!!

^ I know I'm being slow -> Have had the Nvidia Cards for 2 yrs -> I would still like to get my " Have Benched 25 Different ATI/AMD or Nvidia GPU's cookie ? 

- To add to the wish list :  When I first started, I did not fill out the submission forms correctly :( Now looking back at my list of Hardware that I have Benched/Submitted, I have found several errors. I would like to fix these errors but I can only view/change the last 20 submissions with a __________.

^ This is the only place (Specially made just for ME ? ) that you will find a EVGA R9-280x submission.

Thank You
