    Update...
    I do not manage the results table myself, so please don't email me regarding the table being updated. If you spot inaccuracies or problems with the results table, please email Fr4nk with your queries/problems.
    Thanks


    The only way to really do any form of results thread, is using screenshots of programs such as CPU-Z and other such programs.

    Rules
    Due some possible flaws in the way this challenge is run, I've had to introduce some rules. Thanks to Jaguar_Infinity for bringing some of these possible flaws to my attention.
    • You must include a screenshot for your result to count, there are many places to upload it, I've offered to host them too... uploadit.org is also available to upload files for free, so there are no excuses!
    • You must use the linked version of SuperPI which is linked in this thread, *nix users: you need to run Wine to get it to work.
    • Take your screenshot before you hit the "OK" button where it says "PI calcluation is done" because it's possible to edit the numbers which are returned in the main program view.
    • Please include the following information about your system:
      • Processor
      • Motherboard
      • Cooling
      • Memory, timings, and dividers (this information can be found out using CPU-Z)

    CPU-Z

    download

    CPU-Z is a freeware that provides some information on your system :
    • Processor name and vendor
    • Core stepping and process
    • Processor package
    • Processor current core voltage
    • Internal and external clocks, clock multiplier
    • Partial overclock detection
    • Processor features, including supported instructions sets.
    • L1 to L3 cache information : location, size, speed, technology.
    • Motherboard information : name, vendor, BIOS, chipset, memory, AGP.
    • Memory information : size, type, timings, specifications.

    Super-PI

    download

    This program tests how fast you can compute pi to x number of decimal places, for the purposes of this thread, we'll use 1M decimal places.

    Run Super-PI and compute PI to 1M decimal places, then start up CPU-Z and take a screenshot of your desktop and trim it down to size so that you still have your desktop in the background make images no larger than 1024x768 please, anything larger please post as a link. Also post some system specs (CPU stock speed, overclocked speed, vcore at that speed & stepping/week number (if known), RAM, fsb, voltage & timings (if known), motherboard, cooling and temps)

    If you get an error in computation of PI, it means your system is not a stable overclock, as it's making computational errors, keep trying til you get it to run without any errors. :)

    I'll shoot away with my latest, stripped XP down to as bare as I could get it, practically all services turned off.

    [​IMG]

    before this, I was hitting 47s with windows not tweaked at all

    specs:
    Barton 2500+ AQXEA 0331UPMW @ 2310 (11x210) 1.775v
    Abit NF7-S
    Alpha PAL8045 with Akasa Nebula Fan
    2 x 256Mb PC3200 Twinmos with winbond, in dual channel @ 210 7-3-3-2, 2.9v
    Temps: delta 14'C idle, delta 16'C load (difference between case and CPU temp)

    It's a huge image I know, I can't seem to do jpg compression right. If some kind soul wants to recompress it for me I'd be most grateful. Anyway, specs in sig.

    edit: I've shrunk it down to around 110k /bigZ :)

    Here's mine :blah: not sure how good it is since nobody's posted a similar speed of cpu, but my system is in need of a format and a good tweak anyway.

    I need a new cpu as well to compete ;), a recent stepping XP2500 would do nicely...need another £60 or so though :waah:

    Hmmmm i dont think i'll post mine!

    It's a similar time to Will's and its a XP2400 lol. Damn this crappy mobo, doesn't allow voltage adjustments. Its a matter of form over function in my case (pun intented!) lol

    It should be better but my power supply has the core voltage jumping from 1.85-1.95 :blah: as well as the cpu being overclocked too much and cannot reach 2511mhz ne more :( Plus the crappy kt400 not being able to reach 200mhz :waah:

    XP2400+ on an Asus A7N8X.

    Could probably get it to do more but never really tried. It wont go higher than that on the FSB though :waah:

    i get 49s with my 2500@ 2.35 gig (205x11.5) when all my apps are running (all the sys tray stuff, AV etc, running irc, mbm, outlook, firebird, watching stargate etc :D)
    i dont really see much point in shutting everything down to benchmark, its never going to be like that :p might as well find out how much 'spare' power i have after running all the other stuff :)
