I would like to thank each and every one who participated in this challenge, the fact that there were 6 people in the 55000 ER is simply stunning. I had a whole heap of fun with this challenge and I do hope you all did too. New friends were made and new things were learnt.

Congrats, Alex and Myk!

Thank you HiVizMan for organizing this and thank you all, who participated!

Thanks guys, I was expecting Chris to have stepped into high gear and really push things along lol...so hey how do we find out who won the lucky prize? i'm curious to see :p

11-18-2012, 12:21 PM
The link to the list of name and numbers was posted a few days ago. That list was password protected. Now that the challange is over, the password has been revealed.

The overall winner was tasked to select a number from that lists range.

The number is 5.

Now folks can open the archive and see who has the number 5 next to their name. :D

11-18-2012, 12:23 PM
Please do,so i can see who has to give me some beers :))

Please send me your full postal address.

11-18-2012, 02:59 PM
gratz guys)
Alex - outstanding result! I wounder, if this content would last longer, how far could you get?)
Yesterday I've done 32m submission to hwbot just to keep my profile up to date, and I found out that after taking part in this challenge my result is the best among people used the same frequency.
Thank you all, this was a lot of fun and useful experience!

11-18-2012, 04:13 PM
Dartmaul, that is exactly why this challenge was held. Hardware, frequency makes a difference but so does skill. Well done.

11-18-2012, 05:14 PM
Congratulations to all winners and thanks for organizing this contest, it was nice to see how good numbers people got. :P

Dear ROG,

Is there any gaming competions . I wanna join .

11-19-2012, 10:51 AM
Great fun that challenge......still learning from it!

Congrats Alex-Ro and Myk!! and flexnl! and everyone that took part really :D But some seriously good benching from Alex-Ro has to be said!

11-19-2012, 01:09 PM
Thanks:) if you got enquiries about benchi pi or need to improve your score and nned tips you can pm me and ill try to help :)

11-19-2012, 02:16 PM
Congratz to all. & if HiViz was offering a prize for "they that learned the most," I might have been a "contendah"! ;)

11-19-2012, 02:38 PM
Your experience is your price)

11-19-2012, 02:44 PM
It certainly was, Dartmaul. I had a ton of fun while gaining it, too! :D

11-20-2012, 06:04 PM
Oh and i see i have won more haha..... WOEHOEIIIIIIIII :D:D:D:D:D

Congrats to flexnl too! :cool:

11-21-2012, 10:34 AM
tnx!!... i would say, beers all around ..on me :)..:D

Thanks Alex! though I have rather a lot of enquiries:rolleyes: one thing I'd like to know from you or anybody else is if there is a good RAM timings explanation anywhere. The relationship between them etc. For example Raja's guide says that the primary timings should be x y z and the next number the sum of x+y+z at least. But I have not found a good resource on the relationships if any for the rest of the timings and if this changes if for example I run a quad channel kit with out one of the sticks in triple etc.....hope I'm explaining myself.

Even this first "rule" I'm not sure about since I ran my kit 7-8-7-20 at one point...(was it working but working worse?) etc etc.

Also is there a technique for Wazza? are you copying wazza file and then waiting for memory to peak before copying again or copying straight away?

If any of these questions are trade secrets etc. don't feel you have to answer...I tolally get it...I should find out for myself....

For me the challenge continues even if that has to wait until after the 3D challenge:D I am particularly interested in finding out if I have more in my 1600 kit than I got out of it. HiVizMan, you will know a good score when you see one do you think I should be looking for more out of my RAM on X79.

11-21-2012, 04:06 PM

Alex your 990X CPU was sent off this morning.

Flexnl your 2500K CPU was sent off this morning.

Both processors will require a signature and have gone first class recorded air mail.


11-21-2012, 04:24 PM
No one wanted the ram? lol

Arne Saknussemm
11-21-2012, 04:34 PM
That is funny! Maybe these guys already have some ;-)

11-21-2012, 04:48 PM
Thank you sir :)

Arne,different cpu have different memory controller.Alias IMC.Now regarding memory timings,the lower the numbers the better performance is.However if you lower too much and the system is on the edge of stability,your score can be worser.Knowing that,if you have to know what memory suits your IMC the most.If you got a nehalem based system elpida hyper is the king,if you got sandy bridge you use bbse or psc kits as you are limited to 2133-2200 ram freq and you need the best timings as 6-9-6.If you got ivy bridge you need the highest frequency available with not so loose timings.BBSE@2600-2666 8-11-7 can be reached,psc 8-11-8,or samsung@9-11-11.Samsungs chips are very good and the only ones you can find on the market right now.They can do 2800 10-12-12 pretty ease(good biined chips) or even 9-12-12(great kits).

Now i told you before,you got the memories that's fine,but you need to tweak your os and superpi run.I would say tweaking the spi is like 70% and memory is like 30%.YOU WON'T get a great score without maximizing both.

Yes,for wazza you can do manual wazza or use ocxspitweaker.Manual wazza is best if you got a mechanical hard-drive,on ssd the influence is less.

Thanks for that Alex! Good info enjoy the 990X! :)

11-22-2012, 12:00 PM
grats to the leader. normal mobo cant beat the rampage after all...lol

11-28-2012, 02:12 PM
The beast is here :) Thank you again hivizman :)

11-28-2012, 02:15 PM
Thank Goodness I was starting to get worried.

02-14-2013, 03:52 PM
Hi.. I just ran super Pi 32M.. I have the screen shot of it: (Not able to post image :( ) .. Am new to this.. Not sure how it works and, what to do.. :) Any pointers from where to start on Super pi and, image upload?

P.S: I am getting a Database Error whenever I try uploading the image. Image size is 1920x1080 and, type is png, size is 829.9KB..


02-14-2013, 04:06 PM
http://valid.canardpc.com/2693549 CPU-Z Validator link. How do I decrease the time for the super pi to be in the 6sec mark? Thanks again..

02-14-2013, 04:41 PM
What you need to do is save your image as a jpeg. They are a whole lot smaller in KB

To answer your PM question. For 1 mil the only thing that makes any real difference is your clock speed if your system is tweaked.
7.210 is a very good time to aim for at 5GHz.

02-14-2013, 04:47 PM
HVm.. Thanks a lot sir for the reply.. Here is the JPEG.. 17144 Strange! It got uploaded while the png didn't :) Anyways.. How do I get it to the 7.210 Value?? As of now its 7.519.. Average I saw as 7.18 for the 3570k.. Again.. Thanks a lot for the reply.. :)

02-14-2013, 05:03 PM
Also, if you stop the Services and quit explorer during the run (to take off load from your CPU), you may get couple seconds...

02-14-2013, 05:06 PM
The folks who have 5.21 or 5.18 scores are tweaking the heck out of their systems my friend.

To get close you are going to need a fresh OS install. I like to use XP for Super Pi.
No drivers, no chipset inf installed.
Only Super pi

You can try and work out your ram timings to get them as tight as they will go for a successful run of super pi but honestly the size of the onboard cache these days means the entire 1 mil calculation is done on die.

List your hardware and I might be able to offer a few pointers.

02-14-2013, 05:07 PM
Ok.. Gonna try this now.. Thanks Z for the reply.. :) HVM, just saw your reply.. My hardware is in my sig.. nothing except for the CPU and, Mem clock changes.. Will try for the XP run once.. :) Also, will try to tighted the RAM timings (loads to read for this :) ).. Will update if I could do anything.. As of now, my temps are running wild at 83C max reached.. My room temp is 28C even at 10:45 PM :( As of now, will try to stop all services and, run it once.. :)

02-14-2013, 05:14 PM
Also, want to run it to max OC possible and, try the super pi once.. That max oc will be only for the super pi run.. ;D

02-14-2013, 05:37 PM
Wow.. Running the stripped down windows 7 shaved off almost 1mil..! Could get it to 7.394 :) 17145

02-14-2013, 05:40 PM
I think I will try this over the weekend.. :) Thanks again Z n HVM.. You guys rock.. :)

03-07-2013, 01:02 PM
i have a question about the wazza method...
do the drive letters HAVE to be C, D and E ?
or can i install xp on F also and let that be the replacement for C

03-07-2013, 01:16 PM
I think the idea behind the Super Pi benching is to have the simplest system you can have...

Do you have a bigger HDD and trying to use one partition for the XP? A single, small HDD would work better, I think... with all other things disconnected from the mobo...

Te letter used to name the partition is not important. What is important is that you move the Waza files from one partition to another.
