    Bobnova benched DIce THEN! (Over)

    I am! Testing a chip out, mostly for it's 3d capabilities.
    Going to see if I can crank my (and our) best 4670 scores up a notch or fifteen while I'm at it.

    Also testing some g.skill 2400-9-11-9 ram, too.



    Come join me and listen to truly terrible music!

    I was testing a chip and some ram for Kyle, so nothing I can submit.
    Chip does 5540, ram does 1112-7-9-8.

    SB is annoying compared to other systems, I'd forgotten how much so.
    On the plus side, I think I found the OC profile save functionality in my ud4!

    anytime that you can learn something during a bench session, it was a good session.

    OC profiles are huge too, when you're cranking ram the bios often has to be reset as it can't even get far enough into POST to detect that it isn't POSTing.
    Really, things should be set up differently.
    Left to my own devices I'd set it up so that the entire BIOS (EFI, sorry) code was loaded into CPU cache, there's plenty of room in L3 after all. Then it can check the ram without acquiring a large pile of fail if the ram is out to lunch.

    Actually I'd love to run win3.1 on CPU cache alone. Don't need >8mb for 3.1!

    Definitely. That's the best way to go about it. Make every session productive by learning at least one thing.
