This benchmark is tweakable beyond your imagination. In our lounge, we have a whole recipe still good for HW points IIRC

Did you mean to say broken beyond imagining haha? I know there were some good reasons Hwbot killed this bench, but it was all before my time. I was going to run on X570 with some new stuff, but it looks like it won't run.

Re-ran the test with an Overclockers wallpaper.


I was going to install Win7 on my i5 4670k rig, but it failed the other day. Not sure what's up yet, either a PSU or video card problem.

I enlisted the help of one of the most famous PCM05 benchers out there, MikeCDM. He's logged years running this bench and even had the global WR a few times. I spent nearly half the day just trying to get this bench to produce even 1 score, but after some serious head-scratching, I got it working. I cannot take credit for any of the 'efficiency' as Mike walked me through the tweaks and setup. I need to work on my mouse skills :rofl:

I tried to convince Mike to come here and drop a score here, not sure if he will or not...

Been some years since i've ran this bench. I forgot most of the stuff and had to relearn most of it as i went. mllrkllr88 asked me to participate and figured it'd be fun to try this out again. It's a lot easier without having to worry about slowing down xp startup. This was doing using an areca 1882ix with two samsung 840 pro in raid 0.

Well after trying to get the laptop to work .... fail I put this together tonight I didn't even know what was in it for a CPU till 5 min ago. Just a quick run as I need some sleep. If I'm off work early enough tomorrow I will improve this a bit.

Some nice results there guys, I was starting to think this one was a bust!
it was concerning my main rig! At least I got a miniscule run in on the NUC
