2013 Autumn Folly



Caps Off Bonus

28791

Two day burn - there is no cap limit at all for this special 2 day part of the contest. Just push your hardware as hard as it can go and show us what you could have done if there had not been such a mean cap. Set by the wicked witch of the South. That is me if you are not sure.

Cooling restrictions still apply of course.





Summer is well and truly behind us and time to start using the cooler weather and get benching.

This time round it is going to be slightly different.

To compete in this contest you need to form a team. One Intel CPU and one AMD CPU. The choice is there to bench solo if you own or have access to both. But the idea is to have a benching buddy and bench as a team.

http://www.pclaunches.com/entry_images/1109/12/intel-love-amd.jpg

Both CPU's have to run each of the benchmarks. The two scores are submitted and the points or times are combined.

Benchmarks

Wprime 1024 mil

Super Pi 4mil

ROG Realbench

Futuremark


As always there are limitations. This time it is no different.

Rules


Air or Water cooling only - no sub ambient.
Same CPU for all benchmarks
Screenshot to include CPUz main tab, memory tab and motherboard tab
Offical background to be used
Intel CPU cap
Sandybridge 5000
Ivybridge 4700
Haswell 4400
SB-E 4900
IVY-E 4600
AMD CPU cap
990FX 5000
FM2 No limit
Weekly 5 points bonus for submissions (and a bonus bench week 2 and 4)



Challenge Wallpaper courtesy of Chris as always.

Contest starts 1st October and end 31st October.


Due to forum being down for a few hours last night the contest will close 9am 1 November 2013 London time.


Important notice: i5 Processors get an additional 100MHz extra to the cap.

Hey guys, I would like to join. I am looking for an AMD accomplish.... Real shame I just sold of my AMD rigged. System wise I can use my maximus v extreme with, 3770K, or maximus vi extreme with 4770K, or even i7 940 on Asus sabertooth X58.Easiest would be a European partner, since illeminating the time difference makes is easier to communicate. Let me know if you are interested

Indeed sir, at our age and with the stuff we have done in our lives we do understand the meaning of folly. Good to have you playing Chris. And I echo the thanks for another top challenge wallpaper.


I know I need new glasses but it just reads Futuremark but any way

Do you want to team up with this fool Chrsplmr?

All I can say is that there will be a bonus bench or two, that will be revealed on the Sunday night. Those bonus will be for one week only and will take a form that few of you have ever benched before. Trust me on that one. :D :D :D


Ok sorry my missbake

1 cpu per person.. ok

One CPU per Class. So Zoltan can be in one team for AMD and in another team for Intel.


I get it Swedish chef - missbake - AMD partner, good luck

Hi guys! Nice to see a bunch of extraordinary gentlemen again. As usual, I would love to participate. Since, May Madness I got lot more of experience and met lots of worthy guys. Vizman thanks for the new one (can't wait for the surprises), Chris thanks for the desktop (melancholic and romantic, reminds me of myself, light years ago :)). Few questions though. Never benched 3dMark11 before. Do I have to buy it, or I can download a free version of this? IVY capped to 4700 and SB E to 4900? Did I see right or not? Another thing is to find an AMD partner and then I have no idea, if I will be a good partner because of lack of time (I bench only after hours :)). Too many challenges, looks like corporate annual targets. I 'll pass. ......Nop I am gonna give it a try :D .....So AMDers who wants a Greek delidded but not corrupted IVY? Please apply with PM to my Human Resources Department.

HiVizMan
09-28-2013, 03:40 PM
You will not need to buy any benchmarks in my contests. A freeware version will be just fine.

And I understand what you say about SBE and IVy but hey it will balance out in the benchmarks I can promise you.

Sleep ??? You don't need no stink'n Sleep. Sleep in the next life.
Crank up the juice and make 'heater dogs' .. that will cut down on
eat'n cook'n time. Skip showers. Put a 'honey bucket' next to your bench.
You can do this Myk .. and NO Women.
Put up a cam and bench nude .. freaks will pay.

Myk I would want to be "stuck" with you anyday mate! It takes a pair of huge "spheres" to be able to tackle everything life drops at your feet! And that makes a pure winner in my book..why wouldn't I want a winner as my partner in benching or crime? :p Hope you'll be able to compete but if you can't I'm sure Viz will give you a honorary position just cause you're a fighter!

I do have some liquid gear coming my way soon that was donated to me by a good friend and if any of you guys remember the little build I did earlier in the year "Silent Server" i've broken it down, put in the RIVF and my Pi RAM and when I get the gear i'm gonna load it all up and if I can, I may do some unofficial benching with you guys, just to see how i go with the 3820...oh and I got a Gigabyte GTX 280 to go with it :D

Same CPU frequency for each processor class for all benchmarks..

ok, sorry my mistake again

nikosa43
09-30-2013, 09:14 PM
lol, you managed to confuse me :). 3570k of course is IVY. That's why I said that to Nodens. And according to Viz, IVYs are capped to 4700. Same clock has to be used to all benchmarks. So if u run 3570k, you have to run all benches up to 4700. That was my question to Viz. How is that possible, to cap IVY to 4700 and SB E to 4900. This is like taking the cane from the blind turtle and feeding steroids to the rabbit :D. But as always, we have confidence to Viz and his Buhahaha voice from the dark :D

HiVizMan

Thank you Paw - I like to think I do listen to folks and take what they have to say on board and then do what ever I was going to do in the first place.

I would like you to stay inside please, and not freeze your POV's off (Arne and Paw will understand) - yes I know it is going to be winter but this is fun not freezing to death. :D


WhitePaw is free, if anyone with a AMD want to team up..

Just drop me a PM

There are a couple of AMD people who have responded to me, I will post up a list later in the day. I think that if I match up systems and abilities the contest will work well. If you guys agree of course....


And as you have worked out you need to use the same CPU for all the benchmarks, so that means the same Intel CPU for all the bench, and the same AMD CPU for all the bench. You can change CPU when ever you like, as long as your final set of results are all done with the same CPU.

UPDATE

All participants are welcome to start submitting scores. The contest has been pushed back a week due to AMD partners getting cold feet. :p


I wish to clear up some misinformation that is doing the rounds.


1 You have to use the same CPU for all your submitted benchmarks, so if you decide to go for a SB-e you must use only that CPU for all benchymarks submitted. If you decide two or three weeks into the contest you wish to change CPU then all good, but you need to have used the new CPU for ALL benchmarks, and that includes the bonus benchmarks.

2 Bonus benchmarks - No one knows what they are. No one. So please do not read into the Futuremark 11 on the bench as being an indicator of what the bonus benchmark will be.

3 SLi or ChrossfireX - easy enough to disable so lets keep it single card for now please.

4 Contest will offically start 8 October so that we can get enough AMD guys on board.

Don't need to research that:p It's the maximum value of php integer variables (32bit signed), so it's 2^31 :p

EDIT: Which I'm pretty sure Viz can reach in about 15 years or so..at that point his post count will turn negative unless vb code is provisioning for sign bit flipping on post count which I doubt considering they must have thought the idea of 2bil posts to be quite ludicrous. Hohoho! :p

Chris, I didn't try to say anything more, than the thing I said. Maybe u missunderstood something or I didn't put it in the right way because English is not my native language. By saying that, I didn't try to discriminate AMDrs FROM guys by no means. I mean it's nice to see new guys which also have AMD systems, to come to Vizman's challenges, (especially now that we have to make teams). I would be the last guy making that kind of jokes. Never felt inferior because I didn't have the best system or superior because I had a better system. I am sorry mate if I didn't put it down right. I hope I 've made that clear now.

I do not want to scare away guys who are starting for the first time. If the AMD guys are all happy to have higher clocks I am willing to change the rules.

Number six will be revealed in the next few hours.

I have a plan that will work for the other teams if no additional AMD benchers come forward.

Guys I think and so does PAW that each team needs to come up with their own name, and they must start their own thread. For the duration of the contest I will sticky each of the teams threads. Use that team thread to post your scores.

What do you think about that idea.

Yes makes sense for the score keeping...maybe each team thread could start with one post from each team member that we can edit with our highest scores so it's easy to see....

HiVizMan
10-03-2013, 05:51 PM
Yeah that is a good idea Arne, post up scores and edit first post with the best. But still post up new scores as a new post in that thread as I subscribe to threads or else I do not know they have been updated.

Am I to be reviled? I think he got it right actually...

Here is what you do. Use the download links at HWBOT for each of the benchmarks I listed for the contest. Do not use any other download links, with the one exception of ROG RB of course.

You can remove the Futuremark install as Zoltan has said you do not know which benchmark as yet.

After you downloaded it and want to start, you will choose the option 4M

Hey jpotlacek!...funny given your avatar...:)

Yeah it's a bit confusing but Super Pi is super Pi....you have options to run it at various calculation lengths....1m to 32m with steps in between so 4m is one of those steps it's just that HWBOT score 1m and 32m.....

Goodevening there,
I also don't mind 5 as limit, but if older AMDs are participating they be disappointed by the large gap. I doubt that there are any, tho.

solaufein_gr, congrats to your new AMD record in RRB! :cool:
But don't stop tweaking just yet... I'm after you with my FX8350... :D

HiVizMan, as I said before, for me the most important is to learn AMD tweaking - for me does not matter the CPU cap right now...
But, I think, it would give more satisfaction to most of the AMD users if the scores would approach the Intel scores...

The back-side of higher clocks will be the higher temps... - so pretty much every participating AMD guy should try their cooling capacity... Set your CPU at 5GHZ and monitor the temps during the RRB run... specially the second half of the second part, where the CPU is running at 100%... then you can decide if you're comfortable with those temps (I don't think any other benchmark from this Challenge will reach higher temps than that)

Thos who are on water, it should not be a problem... bot those on air should really double-check the temps...

Goodevening there,
I also don't mind 5 as limit, but if older AMDs are participating they be disappointed by the large gap. I doubt that there are any, tho.
As for comfortable, i don't know about your 9370 but i got mine at 5300 before my water cooling shake a white flag. Ohh well.

Runn'n a Phenom right now, RB, is ran @ 3.8. You can see that other running higher are equally under as over.
I have no objection to not have a 'cap' on AMD's.
But for competition the point was a level playing field, I humbly believe,
Don't want to give an advantage over another, Learning Skill.c.

I like the 4600 tbh, on 5ghz i didnt made it stable yet, and chip goes 70+ on temps :(

OK here is what we do, for the first two weeks of competition we run at 4.6GHz. That will give the guys the opportunity to learn about the benchmarks and not have to fight their systems. That time will also give the guys the opportunity to find out what their systems are able to do temp wise at 4.6 - so like Zka said if the systems are able to go hight then maybe we have an open no cap last two weeks. So technically the contest will be in two parts, with cap and without cap. Twice the chance to win and twice as much fun.

I totally agree !

All tweaks will be shared in open forum so that all the guys both now and in the future can learn. :)

There is a thread about RB tweaking by the way.

But let me give you the best tip of all, look to your ram and see what ram straps or dividers (same thing) work best for the RB Bench.

Can you enlighten further Ogreat1 ?? I find little online, well in understandable speak, on the subject. I found some stuff from 2008 .. lost me in a half a blink. Can you or another do a primer for the technically disadvantaged ???

HiVizMan
10-05-2013, 03:42 PM
What I mean here is simple. To change the frequency of your ram in bios the system changes strap/memory dividers, now test which strap is the most efficient and see where it takes you.

For me it seems that they're downloaded... are you getting that error when double-clicking on those .exe files in the bottom?

Have you tried to go to your Download folder copy those .exe files and paste them into the root of your C (system) drive? From there right click on them and send to desktop...

If that document is the same as the Word one I have, I can link Myk and Chris to it. Please confirm if it's the same one.

Here's an excerpt of it.


This is singularly the most difficult, frustrating, near incomprehensible yet also the most satisfying
and rewarding benchmark out of all that we do. A contradiction of terms I would agree but the more
you learn about this benchmark the more you will come to agree with my view.

I had a look to the Pi document and it seems like rocket science :p. I guess Wazza is something that is loaded to RAM, to make the proccess run faster? My, that's scary. Needs lots of time investment to understand what is going on. What fsutil command doing and do we have to run it through command line? Sorry, first time touching the totally unknown.

HiVizMan
10-05-2013, 08:07 PM
You do not have to use Wazza for 4mil. You can if you like. That is part of the entire learning process.

Yes you need to use the command line.

Fsutil is a command-line utility that you can use to perform many FAT and NTFS file system related tasks, such as managing reparse points, managing sparse files, dismounting a volume, or extending a volume. Because fsutil is quite powerful, it should only be used by advanced users who have a thorough knowledge of Windows XP. In addition, you must be logged on as an administrator or a member of the Administrators group in order to use fsutil.

nikosa43
10-05-2013, 08:14 PM
Hmmm, I really want to try this, but from a quick view, I believe that needs lots of time. Also from the first posts of the guys, 2 out of 3 benches are lost without fight for IVY (RB and wPrime) :confused:

Nodens
10-05-2013, 09:55 PM
Copy Wazza is a method to flush the system file cache prior to launching the benchmark. By completely filling up the cache with the file copied, when the copy is done the cache is flushed. So SuperPi gets faster access to the RAM. Without doing Wazza, system file cache may have to be flushed during the SuperPi 32M run which incurs a performance penalty. It may or may not have a big effect depending on the current state of the system file cache. If you do it anyway though, you guarantee the cache is flushed.

As a sidenote, there's no point using it with any benchmark that can benefit from system file cache (eg RealBench on second/third runs..those runs are faster than the first because several of the files read during the benchmark are now cached and not read from disk) or any benchmark that barely uses any RAM (or uses something like small algos that fit entirely in CPU cache). :)

nikosa43
10-06-2013, 12:12 AM
Thanks for the explanation Nodens. The good thing, as Vizman says, we don't need to use it for 4M. When I got some time, I want to give it a try to see how much gain gives.
