    Obviously the best benchmarks to compare CPUs with are real-world tests, but in terms of those benchmarking utilities (like 3DMark and Passmark and stuff), which do you guys trust the most?

    Because I really love Passmark's CPU charts on their website and how you can search through and find scores, prices, and the calculated "value" based upon that. It's the holy grail for any budget builder. But how telling are Passmark scores?

    Not a big benchmarker

    I run prime 95 and furmark together when testing overclocks see if anything fails and run memtest a few times

    I've ran cpc bench a few times but since it doesn't use the graphics card it's not really the most accurate for total system. And it only uses about 20% CPU usage so it's not even close to pushing it.

    Just have a look at a bit-tech CPU review. These guys know their stuff.

    I see Cinebench, WPrime, Gimp Image Editing, Handbrake H.264 Video Encoding, ...
