accidental double post
good luck in that i dont think other programs really have a great impact on it.
They very definitely do. Samurize has a 3% CPU overhead, it makes a difference... around 1.5 seconds actually. Running processes may not.. for instance, Norton, or another background task may have only minimal impact, but something hogging 3% of CPU time definitely does.
ill wait and see the results then
Not even trying here... Like I said, I do all my benches at my every day config.. that includes overclocks. Just whacked up the HTT 10 MHz or so... ran Super-Pi... job done. If I really got into RAM timings, vCore adjustments, cooling improvements etc.. 25 or less.. no problem.
My RAM is limiting me now.. 285 is around max for this stuff. When I get the CE-6 I'll definitely crack 25 secs.
Quite a poor run considering.
edit: the damn RAM is on a divider, now where is the bios option to turn that off.
got a new pr of 31.038 with my 165, my previous before that was in the 34s
I think I could hit sub 30 if I had some better ram and a better power supply because they are the parts in my systm limiting me
will post pics soon
Thats better. Its so tempting to try and get it to 2.7/2.8
Its air cooled with 2GB of G.Skill HZ DDR500.
Well, I'm running my FX at 2.8 GHz on air; too bad my RAM is holding me back, otherwise I know Id be getting better than 36.8 seconds - especially if I could increase the FSB past 200 MHz.
Can't you stick a divider on it? 240 * 12 or 13 with a 166MHz divider will put the RAM at 192MHz. If your board supports a 183Mhz divider, you could put it down to 220 * 13 or 14 for spot-on 200MHz RAM speed. You should still get a better time, even with no gain in memory bandwidth.
Eh not to shabby
Wrong version of SuperPI
Um how? I dl it from this site...first post... so how is it wrong?
No it isn't, it's the correct one! Gonna post an updated version for me today!
Thought it was supposed to be mod 1.4...

Be sure to get all these good times into the hwbot thread. It'll automatically rank you rather than waiting for someone to update a table
unclean what cooling have you got on that badboy? I'm tempted by a high flow fan to see if i can crack 3GHz with mine as i'm only running an akasa amber on my XP-120

Was swapping CPUs about, so was using a Zalman 7700CU (super flower) on it for that benchie
(Was setting up a little LAN at the time in a garage and the heating hadn't really got into action so I'd say idle was about 10 degrees C.)
