dunno how to start...after several eventful days...we've lost the legend and a few good benchers...

its pure against the greeks and the mighty hipro5 2003 and aquamark gold member :)

on another thought...

i4memory is less than 100pts away in overtaking us... 7-24-09

bench my XS brothers :)

i'll do some dice tomorrow. maybe i can get 1pt :D

No, we didn't lose Kingpin - he's gone ahead to pave the way for us :)

I have some quadsli and HD4830 benching coming on, maybe even some pi on an i7-975. So little time, so little ln2 and dice :(

i might be from another team but i do feel for you guys its been a tough week for you all

but one thing i do know about xs forums is you have numbers on your side

maybe you could run some competitions with prizes based on hwbot submissions and get the ball rolling again

any way good luck with the team lads

and remember there is over 200 teams behind you but only 9 in front

This may be a funny contest in forums, but once you add points, people will start cheating, and the problem is you can't verify which cooling was used.

i see the classified have lower QPI multi than the bloodrage it's probably really handy for those high clocking session, i'm @ 4ghz QPI with the lowest multi @ 4.7ghz with the BR.

w00t i found a place carrying dice, about 20min from home!!!
now i need to volt mod my BR, volt mod my 4870, get a temp sensor for my DMM and get a CPU pot :D

mkultra, you won't need a temp probe for dice, just shove dice into the pot and keep it full :D common DMMs can only measure as low as -40 degrees so it would be useless anyway.

@ Hondacity: needs moar uncore clock!

don't tempt me hondacity :D

if only if wasn't that expensive, but i'm really close to say :banana::banana::banana::banana: it and buy a classified and a w3540 :D

Exactly! :up:

I have PM'd Charles asking for a team section under the Xtremesystems Teams subforum, just like WCG and F@H, he didn't answer yet, maybe some of you could PM about how badly we need it to form a real benching team. :stick:
( The team section should only be visible for a new user group of course )

Then we could also discuss tweaks and such and show off our own backups if we ever have some without having to worry that someone else is able to read it.

There is a section but not visible to the regular user groups, I am trying to bring some reform to how we have our team set up and kickign around ideas, so please a little patients is needed as I want to get things squared away and have a smooth ride with it... Everything you have stated is already being discussed or has been brought up... So please sit tight as backroom talks are afoot and we have some decent ideas on this ...

Its not just XIPs FYI - the user groups that the person is in makes a difference with visibility in XS...

Right now I am runnign aitr on my stuff but I was looking to go with DICE to start but I was not really looking to start out with DICE with my i7 setup. Maybe an old rig and try it that way. Anyone have some suggestions or any ideas to offer to the new guy.

I am a new member that just joined the team. I am into benchmarking but I do not have any idea where to start when it comes to Xtreme cooling. Right now I am runnign aitr on my stuff but I was looking to go with DICE to start but I was not really looking to start out with DICE with my i7 setup. Maybe an old rig and try it that way. Anyone have some suggestions or any ideas to offer to the new guy.

excellent to have you...

1. cpu pot... koolance has one.
2. bookstore get all the kneaded eraser they have...or any artstore..
3. ac ceramique get like 5 tubes remounts are necessary..
4. some tube insulators kingpincooling has some tube insulators
5. dice and ventilation in your place..you don't want breathing most of it..its poison ...1 big beach towel to wrap it..and a cooler to store it..it lasts 2-4days if the towel and cooler is good. a hammer too.. and some paper towels...

that sums up what i usually do

what is your mobo? the mobo is key here...i have the gb extreme x58 and it sucks donkey balls...

I have a gigabyet ud5 I enjoy mine but the hard mod is needed for 230+ bclk. So that is why i am looking to go with a classified if I can sell this one.

Hondacity
08-09-2009, 09:34 PM
yeah i'm not into hardmods myslef..sell sell sell :)

or buy my gb mobo...:rofl:

don't forget the acetone :)

what kind of store carries acetone?
i gave a deposit on my dice today, they said they've been screwed in the past and don't want to end up with dice and no one to buy it. I,ll be picking it up friday to bench friday night saturday.
Can't believe i'll loose my subzero virginity :D
but with my lack of experience at subzero temps and without my Dom GT i don't expect much, It will be more a learning session the classified have some issue with my g-skill i think, i cannot boot in decent timings over ~1300/1400, i'll have to look into this.
But i'm sure i can rank up some point in pcmark05 and wprime

using the classified makes me love my BR more everyday, man that board can be picky.

i'd really appreciate it hondacity, i haven't reached more than 240 in my limited time i tried with a low multi, those cpu or ram bsods are making me crazy and i'm about to murder some silicon

Hondacity
08-11-2009, 12:25 AM
one thing i've noticed...

cpu crash is..instant bsods...

ram crash is...when the screen freezes then bsods...

here are my quick settings..i use this for most of my runs...ht off and ht on

not really loose, but ummmm just change the em to 8-8-8 or 9-9-9

yesssssss i need help with the 32m.... man my runs are stable but my tweak is soooo bad... i know the classy and my ram and my cpu are very very good..

my os and technique is bad... HELP HELP HELP

Thanks dude :)

08-11-2009, 05:17 PM
thanks
lol yeah i've run memory timings MUCH looser than this :)
like 11-11-11-24(trfc103) LOL
i was expecting you used more subtimings tweaks :)

i'll try to use 2way/1way
also what does memory low gap do?

cpu clock skew 100 is interesting tho, i've tried to play with it a bit for getting my 229.5x21 validation, but i guess it was hopeless from the start

Hondacity
08-11-2009, 06:56 PM
i see you have an a batch it might be the limiter...what voltages do you use?

Hondacity
08-11-2009, 09:53 PM
well a bencher said that...wprime runs faster on vista.....i have no data on it...vista is installing :)

Hondacity
08-12-2009, 01:11 AM
well as i suspected...vista sucks....LOL

it adds like 4seconds over my same max bclk... 13$ worth of dice wasted...

mk-ultra
08-12-2009, 05:18 PM
i tried lots of different voltages i based my volts on anandtech classy review and start from there
but heat might be the biggest issue too, i'll see how it performs under cold and i got another w3520 on the way to compare

hc
did you tried win7 ?

Hondacity
08-12-2009, 06:17 PM
i tried the eval version..i think my license for that is expired..i'll prolly get the upgrade for my vista ulitmate...

with watercooling and good ambients i'd go 1.55v maxx on vcore :) its suicide...

i got an a revision too...i can't go ever 225bclk...it sucks but it can do 4.4ghz easy..

did some validations ;)

2nd w3520 on hwbot, not bad for first try

i mainly played with wprime, but i'll beat those scores away once i found out how to get e-leet working in diagnostic start

i still got lots of dice left for tommorow,
i weighted the whole box when i got it and it was ~45lbs :D and i still have like 2/3 left

Hondacity
08-14-2009, 08:15 PM
wooooooooooooooo get gold :D disable ht :D

what is your vcore?

xtreme indeed :up:

mk-ultra
08-14-2009, 08:25 PM
i stayed within e-leet 1.6 max vcore, i tried disabling HT and couldn't get 250 either, i guess it just need more juice or the higher QPI multi from the xeon will stop me from going further

i just saw you used much more vcore than this, what's the max you used?

Hondacity
08-14-2009, 09:19 PM
1.74v on the vcore
and 1.7 volts on the ummm i forgot the term...LOL

i'm all out of dice :(

i did score some points this weekend, but i'm very limited by my ram. I'll wait to get my Dominator GT to make another session it was fun and frustating weekend overall.

the instability from the ram or imc killed a lot of seemingly good runs. I beated a few of my scores posted on hwbot but i didn't had time to take a screenie.

i experienced something very wierd when setting 248blck x21 the qpi/uncore/core speed jumps around forth and back and i can't barely move my mouse or do anything, really wierd.

Hondacity
08-16-2009, 09:53 AM
yes i have the same problem...the multiplier jumps..thats the problem with high vcore....(turbo is actually no stable with high vcore)

solution:

..go thru the voltage increments.....example like vcore...1.4..then raise it to 1.45..then raise it to 1.55...then increase bclk..by 1mhz..then adjust vcore again...don't do 1.8v :D

mk-ultra
08-16-2009, 09:58 AM

i did scared the HELL out of me
i sawpped my new w3520 and no POST, just FF on the debug led. I though ok the cpu is DOA, put the old ones into the socket, boot...FF again.
OMG i killed my classified, removed the old cpu take a look at the pins and one of them seem a bit out of place, use a tiny screwdriver to pry it a bit put the new w3520 and f3-f6-f8 that's better :D

moral of the story, take care when installing a cpu into a vertical mobo :)
so far so good with the new CPU, i can install stuff i couldn't before like gpu drivers DOH!, also mkvtoolnix don't ask me why this one but each time i tried to install this app i had a BSOD. Now fingers crossed to see the bsod go away, i'm so tired of that :banana::banana::banana::banana:.

you're right it might be a good thing at least i know what to expect if it's close to the other one, i just have high expectation i guess i know it's not a bad chip. but that silver medal is killing me :D
i couldn't boot with QPI in slow mode it was staying on windows boot screen forever

I'll wait a few days to be 100% sure it was the cause of my bsod and i can sell it for very little money, it still clock good i did all my run this weekend with it, you just ignore ny bsod saying bad pool caller/fileinfo.sys/apc index mismatch

or i'll try to expose the die, either by removing the ihs or sanding it :D

i have my theory on what killed it or i should say damaged the IMC, on the bloodrage before g25 bios when you enabled XMP profile it was setting 1.85v vdimm automatically and I've booted like this a few times without noticing it. If all the warnings about the .5v difference between vdimm and vtt are true it might the cause.

new one "000012967 045BE 00010"
old one "000012967 040B7 00030"

EDIT:

when on auto, vcore of the new w3520
1.10 bios -1.080 DMM turbo off
bios = 1.15 with turbo on
old one was set to 1.2 by bios on auto, interesting, seems to run a bit hot tho for this voltage or i screw up when installing my CPU block(which might be highly possible seeing what i did earlier :D )

what is LOD tweak? LOL i'm noob :D



For nVidia cards.

Open RivaTuner>>Power User tab>>Rivatuner\nVidia\Global>>LODBiasRange, 15 is the highest value that will do anything using higher has no effect but lower can help with selecting the number you want.

After you enter the desired value in LODBiasRange go back to the tab labeled "Main". Under "Driver settings" click the expand arrow thing and select the green X with a purple background(DirectDraw and Direct 3d settings).

The slider labeled as Mipmap LOD bias adjustment is the one you want to play with. Before the changes under Power User it would only go up to 3 it should go to 15 now.:up:

never knew there was a thread where you keep up with new entries :up:

I guess I pretty much rocked wprime huh? Thanks to nn_step and his wonderful XSOS on the X5570's - no other tweaks whatsoever ;)

Lol, I got 84 points and all are from wprime - guess I should start benching some 3D eh :wasntme:

Unfortunately I don't run on phase atm, or I could put up some 3D06 with 3x 4870.. the 975 ain't the best but it was/is good for 4,7 3D. Oh well, I'll try to go 3D someday.

dual x5570 is brutal jcool!

i got 8th place and 5ish points for 1x 4870 in 3DMV, not bad for stock cooling :), i settled for 4.5 for 3d bench. I don't think i'll be able to go higher on water and with the high temps
i wish i had some decent GPUs to bench

i received an email from corsair today, they shipped my DOM GT 1866...can't wait to get it back and to see how those "new" hyper elpida performs, then i'll put my new w3520 under dice with it.

but that chip is crazy, it hits 95/100oC on water @ 1.45vcore when encoding with x264, very bad chip for 24/7

welcome aboard m8,

yeah your prime sucks! LOL

you gettin a gulftown soon? 16cores? :D or was it 12?:confused:

Haha yeah, probably ;)
Gulftown is 6 cores / 12 threads, and will run on both single and dual LGA1366 mobos. So depending on how many I can get, we may see some even better wprime :rofl:

Are there any real tweaks for wprime BTW, apart from using the right OS? Server 08 and esp. XSOS seem to be real fast already (the Quad Opteron is on server 08). Unfortunately I can't get a gold cup for the 5570's, they are early B0 step and have no working Turbo mode (otherwise I'd get a +2 multi boost and destroy the 2 minute mark :eek: )

Oh well, some day soon :D

Anyway, what other benches give some decent points? Should I try for PC Mark or something? I do have an SSD etc, but IIRC PCMark is too stupid to use multipe CPU cores and GPUs right?

mk-ultra

most effective tweak and easiest for wprime i think is to boot into diagnostic mode

many thanks thebluemeanie1

thebluemeanie explained it pretty good, are you interested in LOD for ATI too?



Unfortunately I don't run on phase atm, or I could put up some 3D06 with 3x 4870.. the 975 ain't the best but it was/is good for 4,7 3D. Oh well, I'll try to go 3D someday.


Hey jcool,
it's nice to have you aboard! :)
Yeah, some 3D would be very cool, you could get some serious points with your setup! Since you have an SSD you could test PCMark 05 and Vantage too. They use more cores, but I'm not sure if they use more than 4 cores. Besides WPrime, there is nothing that would profit from 8 cores unfortunately...

Nice, will try if that gives me any boost soon. Edit: You mean safe mode, right? :confused:

Hey mate,

nice to see I'm not the only German tired of German forums :D
Will give PC Mark a shot these days, if it doesn't use 8 threads I can disable HT on the 975. Not sure how high I can bench with water tho, my water setup is total crap (loop was designed for the GPU only...), and with the 30+C ambients we're seeing at the moment it's gonna be hard.

You guys got any links to tweaking guides/lists for PCmark, 3Dmark etc?

I really don't care that much about benching but figured I'd help out the team gain a few ranks when I can. Plus it's been fun so far :up:

You can't imagine how right you are... :D
It would be cool if you could do some damage for the team, we need to get over the 7000 points again at least. We don't have a tweaking thread yet, but you can PM if you have any questions, but for PCMark 05 there isn't much to do besides running it with a SSD and in Vista.
I'm glad you like benching! :up:

maybe i should have waited for amd/ati new line of GPU but i have doubts about their supremacy on hwbot, i brought it used tho it wasn't a bad price, especially if you compare to what those cards are selling here in Canada, they are still 550$+(cnd)
some people says the 5870 will beat a 4870x2 or a gtx295 but i'll have to see it to believe it.

but there's something that bothers me, i lost my defective w3520 in my room. i was sanding it Saturday night and i haven't seen it since. i've looked everywhere and can't find it, that sux

Yeah, bench PCMark05 again with some SSDs, that will increase your score very much, and don't run XP, it's too slow for the Transparent Window test.
Run Vista or Win7 which might give even better scores.

Gpu @ 1.5v and mem is between 2.2 and 2.3v(not sure of excact figure without putting `em back on board. I could have more scores to submit, haven`t checked thru all my old files yet. Lost a lot of backups when a drive went belly up. My fault for not not backing up regularly. Just got a new 7900GS but when i opened it a small part fell off. it still runs but doesn`t clock very well. Pretty sure it can be soldered back on. not sure what it does though.

below zero the classified is the king without any question
why? because of the high blocks it can reach and it was designed with subzero cooling in mind.

but i really want to do the pcie mod for the bloodrage and see if i can get close to what the classi can do.
or i'll just sell it and buy a gpu or something in place

Don't know, I ran a 4870 512mb with a 4870X2 about a year ago with the 8.10 drivers or something close and it was fine... It had trouble when I was trying to overclock them...

Solved that by synching the clock rates with rivatuner (single card ran 50mhz higher ram).

Still I didn't have much luck overall. System kept shutting down for no apparent reason, I am blaming the pretty new 900W OCZ GameXstream.

Anyway, I did 03 and 06 runs, and while both scores aren't good they are a start. Unfortunately I can't seem to use the 03 result - no matter how often I click on "make public" in the ORB, it just won't do it. Wtf? :(

I think you can only make a certain number of results public for the free version of each 3DMark benchmark then you can't make it public any more. :( You'd have to buy the advanced version...

Hehe, then you have to bench harder! :D

The most important tweak for 3DMark 03 is in my opinion to run it directly after a reboot, the second run is always worse. When you've found new settings, reboot, and run the test, this will always give you a better score.

hey bud only the classifieds are non hard mod required to run 250mhz bclk... with the 920/w3520 you need high bclk to have fun...if you have the i950/w3540 asus and dfi and msi will be ok with 220-230mhz bclks

How high did you run PCIe frequency? I've seen people use as high as 150MHz in single card mode without problems.

i ACTUALLY did 29k :D thanks

http://www.hwbot.org/result.do?resultId=893237

i was 1mark away from a guy @ 28940, couldn't sleep with that result :p:


btw mem oc doesn't do :banana::banana::banana::banana:, same score with 1050 and 1200 :shrug:

that score and the vantage run is the best i can do today, i'll be away all weekend. No more playing with my new toy until monday ;(.
Can't wait to put my new cpu under dice and do some 3d with that beast of gpu.

Hey guys, just got in here! Sorry the delay. This is an awesome thread, made me very happy to be on-board. Loved to see the hard work and nice results you guys are putting in.

I did update some of my Q9650 results but to consolidate the Q9650 ranking and get us some more points I need to knock scooter.jay from Bench Tek UK on PCMark05. He is currently in 1st with 24.4k.

It will be my first time benching with PCMark so any pointers will be much appreciated.

Go XsHWbotTeam!

Today, Hondacity has run his GTX 285 SLI setup through 01 getting close to 95k.
lionel57000 has achieved two gold medals in both WPrime categories for Opteron 8354, thus gaining enough points to steal my 19th place in the team... :mad:

j/k

Goooooood work! :up:


You are all getting new stuff, that's cool, I wish Simon would send me my stuff a bit faster, I want something new too. :)

I figured out how to OC this thing a little further ;)
Still only 138Mhz BCLK, imagine what this could do @150-160.. grml.

Today was full of good scores:
Of course loonym already mentioned it, jcool was able to complete the WPrime 32m benchmark in 4s and 460ms with his 2x Xeon X5570 system running at 3038MHz.
Hondacity has posted a new personal best in 06, reaching 31858 marks.
Last but not least, mk-ultra is still playing with his new toy and he is posting scores in 05, 06, Vantage and AM3.

EDIT: I just noticed we passed 6600 points today!!! :up: :up: :up:

chispy, you could have taken this to PM or to HWBot instead of coming and crapping all over the thread. Very poor form. :down:

look at mk_ulta..his 295s are runing at 775mhz and his card is aircooled...mine can do high clocks on stock air as well
i've benched everything at 756MHz linked with RAM at 1215; and some tests at 774MHz linked :)
with water i think 850 would be doable on mine too....

Nail polish works wonder on DI guys.....I wouldn't use it for close relation to cpu socket on ln2 but for DI it's :up: you can bench with a pool on the board.

It cleans up with acetone easy if your worried about the board looking umm "clean"

Today jcool posted his score for WPrime 1024m, his system is still running at ~3GHz and he was able to complete the benchmark in 2min 7sec and 50ms, which means his score made in into the top 20 of WPrime 1024m! Congrats! :up:
mk-ultra is posting his scores for GTX 295 in 03 and 05!
The last two are members who did not post that much up to now, but maybe it changes now: MassiveOverkill has posted a 06 score for GTX 275 SLI, powered by his i7 at 4GHz, and Xtreme_Solid is already pushing the new i5 platform in SPi 32m!

Good job to all!

i just ordered half a block of dice for friday :D
can't wait to see what this hot chip does under cold

at thegoateater request, i don't think i can get 4.5 uncore stable under water
http://img143.imageshack.us/img143/6168/3dmark0539352.th.jpg (http://img143.imageshack.us/img143/6168/3dmark0539352.jpg)

i did a good thing rmaing my ram for the "new" dom gt. 1097@8-8-8-20 is not bad at all i think, i know the old set couldn't do such things
i'll look more closely to what it can do in 3d/2d benchs before this friday
maybe i can tighten those timings a bit more for 3d but i don't count on it to pass spi32m like that

the uncore should scale with cold - as mine stops at 4200 under water but goes to 4800 on DICE - and up the voltage on the DOMs and go for broke at 7-8-7-20 1nLOL

damn HC you can just walk in and buy dice?
i have to order it 1 day in advance and last time i had to make a deposit LOL

Goat
i don't think it will do it in cas7 LOL, but i haven't tried a lot of stuff
we'll see soon enough :D

also i noticed i get the weird multi/frequency jumping around @ 222blck wonder why it happens so soon, but i need to test some more
If that cpu don't do at least 4.9 3d on cold i'll throw it out of the window :), joke, but i'm selling it for sure maybe for a bigger multi who knows!
i still have my damaged cpu as a backup for benching if this one doesn't want to cooperate

mk-ultra, go for CL7! :D
What VDIMM are you using for 1097MHz 8-8-8-20?
