NN8 subs and The Mexican Riviera
Any time I have had issues, the file was corrupted....
So yep, Aquamark has a convenient "Save to Desktop" option. Auto names/saves a [yourscore].hwbot.
Thankfully, HwBot staff came to my assistance:
It would have been nice to know that, or have it stated in the rules...
If it was, I missed it anyway. The HwBot motto, "Learn the hard way" or "Do it Over"...
So, I am all in on the 5 stages. If I must knock myself out patting me on the back, so be-it...
But it seems I have laid the foundations for a solid run.
I don't know any fancy bb code to show this.
Stage 1 - SuperPi(Intel) 10M - 7.407
I can probably do better but it was a struggle to get here. I have a shakey 49x profile I can run. Not sure about my DDR timing as well.
I had hoped the 6700k would do better than this, but I am just getting the hang of some of the nuances...
Not one I plan to re-run unless necesary.
Stage2 - PiFast(AMD) - 48.840
So ran this at stock on The WhiteElephant with the Athlon 64 X2.
Will try to improve with some FSB magic. Also see how the Sempy does, see Stage3
Stage3 - Reference Clock-FSB -229 Mhz
got up there with not too much effort, can probably squeeze a few more, but I know I can get ~240+ with the sempy.
Stage4- 3DMark01 - 79441 marks
Won't be rerunning this score with the 980ti hydrocopper.
Stage5 - Aquamark(AMD) - 391092 marks
Want to shoot for 400000.
So there you have it. I have made this preemptive maneuver for a number of reasons.
First, I am dealing with a sort of hardware merry-go-round with these comps and it keeps me from finishing FatherTime.
Which is OK, cause all I have is time.
Second, showing an example of a "Good Novice Bencher", and getting my subs in and not leaving anyone hanging ball-sack in a cold wind.
Third, I will be departing the country shorty to take care of, ah, er some business. Yes, that's the ticket...
And will not be around for the last 10 days of the comp.
Check my WhiteElephant subs, the screen saver is what I will be looking at.
And yes, my place, shameless plug here. Discounts for any OCF members, PM me:
My unit is LB7, el nido.
