I dont really think a single run down the drag strip should be used to rank computers that are overclocked. This seems to be main tactic alot of OCers are persuing. One thing I like alot about the readers on THIS forum is their persuit of STABILITY and SPEED.. Not just speed. Other Forums on the net place alot of status with being the fastest on 3dmark2001.. But lets face it.. Those runs are made much in the same way a funny car is run.. GO GO GO hope the engine doesnt blow!

Nay I think there should be a new online benchmark that runs for at least 12 hours. This will ensure that the machine not only cooks, but is stable. Really, what good is a machine that runs 3dmark2001 1 in 4 tries?
