  1. Well... I can't take alot of credit.

    Good Hardware and Good Help. Thats where those scores came from. :)

    Plus a healthy disrespect for the hardware... Sebas would have slapped me if he could have when he saw the NB at 1.85v.
    That is a special chip, but you'll find that if you know what you are doing basically and listen to the team's guidance... You tend to have good luck with chips. A lot of it is making sure you are getting all the chip has to offer. :salute:
    Someone we know is listed 3 times on the hwbot homepage for top submissions in the past 24 hours. :thup:

    It might also help that everyone has quit benching 580's while they wait to scramble and purchase 7970's, usually all the 580 submissions are clogging up the top scores.
    If you don't know the rest are really solid chips it can be a bit of a crap shoot that another e6400 would do better to which you would waste LN2 testing for their top speeds (and thus the insulation time, etc). If you have another model of CPU I would give it a shot, but make sure to pre-test it so you know where to start versus starting from scratch with a chip.
    LOL... Yeah... It was getting late.

    I actually noticed once I finally got inside that I also had the shakes from low blood sugar cause I forgot to eat my dinner... Being diabetic is a pain... So the chances that I was making some kind of simple mistake are actually pretty decent.

    Gonna take the evening off, figure out a new plan of attack... Then probably hit up the LN2 store for another benching session.

    Just trying to decide if I want to try to get just a bit more out of that chip, or try one of the other untested 6400's I've got. I think that chip will be a pretty tough act to follow though, so maybe it's time to forget about E6400 and move onto something else.
    That's what he was doing. Which makes it more confusing. It was 4AM however (my time at least), and he was low on LN2 when doing it... So maybe a silly mistake was made? Could have been hitting F8 or F6 by accident, not sure. haha
    I believe he got to 612 at one point, via vcore and NB voltage increases. (as well as everything else he kept increasing on whim) :D

    We aren't sure what happened with the CPUz captures, for some reason his higher validations didn't save, or were lost.
    I.M.O.G.
    (and I expect you'll be fixing those scores when you get the chance)


    Thanks... I appreciate all the guys who stopped in to help. Couldn't have pulled it off without ya'll.

    Especially Sebas... That guy is a big help.

    And yes... Those are the thorns in my side for today... And I'll be fixing those ASAP. :)
