Here we are at the end of the Marathon for this year so I thought I would pick a favorite (sarcasm intended). Catzilla can be fussy and is prone to glitches so if you score much better than you thought you should have you probably have a bugged run. There are a few tweaks on this one to help your scores and watch CPU stability as it can have a negative affect. Good luck everyone and thanks for coming out. The Marathon wouldn't exist without you. :thup:

1 of April or this is for real ? ... I just wasn't expecting Catzilla 720p :) ... and sadly everything I have in queue for tests in next days/weeks won't have good enough CPU for this bench :(

No joke Bartman, you still can't read my mind. Tinfoil is awesome.

You know that 720P has been currently banned at HWBot.org

I'm not so sure M_M, if it's been disabled I shouldn't have gotten points for my sub yesterday.

That post is from 2014, and references datafiles which aren't required by current rules as far as I understand it.

Anyway, have a 3x crossfire submission. I've had enough of this... the driver problems are still there, but in a more sneaky way than with Superposition. Here, some of the GPU subscores appear to scale, where others don't, unless you remake the profile, every time you reboot or the driver crashes. Which it does a lot when I'm just using the driver settings! The benchmark seems to be a random number generator. Things that you think will improve score often lowers it. CF scaling for overall score was over 2x so it is doing something with all 3 cards. Anyway, enough ranting, have a not-my-best score which was obtained stock. My OC scores went down.

Thanks Mack, I was just going to say that. Nice to see the board is holding up.

Well NOT completely banned :) Supposedly they disabled any points for : UGP, UHP, GTPP, and HTPP.
My ranting (which fell on deaf ears) about the 576p and the 720p having no point's was unfair. I got 00.00 points for being 2nd with my video card BUT K|ngP|n get's 400 boints for being 1st with a Titan V. No love for older hardware :cry:

I will have to wait before I can post any subs. I had a leak in my cooing system and KILT my board. I have a z170m E4 from chop_wood that I'll be picking up this week. I hope that it's a decent OCer. I should also be getting my 2nd box of video cards from Witchy this week :thup:

Can I toss in a modification to this Months benching:) He HE HE

Take the total Submissions by MEMBER and add them together at the end of the month for the total score. This would encourage more submissions by each member :)
Break the submissions down to :
Only 4 submissions allowed per video card. Example would be GTX-980Ti - 2xGTX-980Ti - 3xGTX-980Ti or 4xGTX-980Ti each would be considered a separate submission.
Have a separate Nvidia and AMD section.
Could also have a separate Intel and AMD section. Considering AMD CPUs are handicapped when it comes to 3D Benching.

Not sure how you would handle Nvidia as there are 980's and 980Ti's

This is just a suggestion :) AS this month I will be celebrating - Having gone 1 year without a cigarette:attn: and will be a turning 49

Thank You :)

Welcome to HWBot, their field their rules. You have to pay for th BM to get HW points in 1080 and up. I'll keep things the way they are M_M same rules from year to year and it's easy for me to keep track of.
The Marathon is done for the year feel free to start a competition on your own anytime.

May have to give it a try with my R9 380X and see what happens.
I'll also be goofing off with a couple of older cards too for comparison, since I'll have it on my new build/DD machine it won't be clocked too high (On air) but would be enough for a laugh compared to the runs done already.

Nice one M_R, looks like water doesn't give it that much more headroom but enough
