Thank you, Menthol!

The good news is that I finally downloaded all the benchmarks (except Futuremark of course) and my AMD system is seemingly running! :cool:

Set the CPU at 4600MHz - LOL, I won't need water for this speed... max temps barely reaching 60C with the Noctua cooler...

For those who want to know more about Chimera: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chimera_(mythology)

Today we're using chimeras in research... - but they're not so brutal like in the mythology... Today we're calling "chimeric organisms" those animals which have cells from multiple ones (like after transplant)

Zka17
10-06-2013, 11:45 AM
Thank you, ganji!

nikosa43, I needed a computer at home for work... and I fall in love in that case... - however I might move the system out of the case if the Noctua will not handle the temps at 5GHz when the time for that cap will come... also, no other memory kit fits there, so if I want change, will have to remove anyway...

I'll bench in your absence, as soon as you get back up and running, you can take it back over

Arne,
Please don't jinx me buddy

Menthol
10-07-2013, 04:55 AM
OK not 100% prepared, my motherboard or CPU one is acting a little funny on the Bus speed, I will lower it if needed, I was trying to get it as close to 4900MHZ without being under but I can take it down, don't believe a couple mhz will hurt me but to late for me to change it and get a submission in. Please check these over and let me know if I made any screw ups, not used to these and ran them quick to get them in

System components:
Mobo: Asus RIVE
CPU: SB-E 3930K - 4902.MHZ changes by a small amount constantly
RAM: Patriot Sector 5 4x2GB - 2400 MHZ / 7-11-7-28 1T
VGA: EVGA GTX 780 Classified
SSD: Corsair Force GT 120GB
PSU: Corsair AX1200
Cooling: Aqua distilled

System looks something like this except only one GPU at this time.

wPrime = 105.253sec

I think, going a little bit over the CPU cap is OK for now... by the time we're getting close to the end we will figure it out to completely stay in limits...

Good to see you Menthol. Nice scores and I think these benches suite your mem sticks. We have to find a way and an AMD guy to slip you in the challenge :)

Menthol
10-08-2013, 07:32 PM
Zka,
Being in second place is our stratagy correct. We'll need to talk about that Cinebench combination score thing, I have no idea how Viz dreams these things up but it doesn't sound to hard, I may need a few hints on the other benchmarks to increase my scores a little.

Det,
Hope you get your system back up soon buddy, if there is something I can help you with don't heasitate to ask, honestly, if you need to borrow a M/B or something just let me know, anything

Menthol
10-08-2013, 07:47 PM
Us old guys are slow, but we are crafty mate. The bonus is not tied to the others correct, in the other 3 we bench at the same CPU speed

HiVizMan
10-08-2013, 07:57 PM
LOL nice try Menthol CPU cap is CPU cap across the entire contest so sadly the cap still stands even for the bonus benchmarks.

I wondered who would pounce on that false dawn...

Zka17
10-08-2013, 08:20 PM
I don't think we want to reach the cap for the Cinebench... actually we will need to go well below the cap for get that number as a sum of the Intel + AMD run... - for a single CPU it would be pretty much impossible to reach that CB result (with these caps), but for two is too small... have to see how my FX8350 does in that benchmark!

Zka17
10-08-2013, 08:23 PM
Us old guys are slow, but we are crafty mate. The bonus is not tied to the others correct, in the other 3 we bench at the same CPU speed

In the other benchmarks you need to use the same CPU, but you can choose the speed for each benchmark - below the cap limits, of course! I assume that each benchmark will like different bus and CPU ratio combination, but that's OK, just don't go over the cap with any of those combinations...

HiVizMan
10-08-2013, 08:23 PM
8350 will get between 6 and 8 for the benchmark at the cap. :D

Zka17
10-08-2013, 08:27 PM
8350 will get between 6 and 8 for the benchmark at the cap. :D

Don't brake my joy! I want to find out by myself... :D

But yes, that will be too high in combination with Menthol's 3930k at the cap... we will just lower our frequencies, shake certain times our CPUs in one side, then whirl couple times in the other - and we will get right there! :D

HiVizMan
10-08-2013, 08:40 PM
My bad sorry. :(

:p

Menthol
10-09-2013, 12:35 AM
Lower my CPU freq, not if I have to run the other benchmarks at the same speed. Unless I misunderstand. I am sure there are other ways to lower the score, I could watch an episode of Breaking Bad on netflicks or something and run Cinebench in the background

Menthol
10-09-2013, 12:58 AM
Zka,
I still ave a 4930K and the system I am trolling on, my lil Haswell, I haven't really benched either as there not good chips but both will hit the cap.
What would be the difference between a 3930k with memory at 2400 cl7 compared to a 4930K with memory at 2666 to 3000 cl10?

Zka17
10-09-2013, 05:26 AM
Each of us has to use the same CPU, but we can have different clocks... - so, lowering the clocks is OK

I really don't know the 4930k... but if you have started with the 3930k, then I would stick to it a little bit longer... - there is still time to change it during the CHallenge, if it has to be changed...

HiVizMan
10-09-2013, 07:03 AM
Zka = AMD
Menthol = Intel

Same CPU for all submitted benchmarks. You can change CPU within your class at will. However all the contest benchmarks have to be on the same CPU. So that means if you change from a Haswell to a IVY-e then you must redo ALL the benchmarks that were submitted with the Haswell.

And do remember the bonus bench is only open for submissions this week. So in effect you have to have decided what is your optimal CPU in each class by the end of this week, there after technically you are not able to change CPU. :)

zka17 what temps you have on 5ghz on your chip ? while doing benches?

Zka17
10-13-2013, 01:21 AM
The hottest core temps reach 66C during the RB second test... all others are below... I'm on Noctua NH D14...

Looking at your signature, I see that you have the Antec Kuhler 920... - what are your temps?

I'm on Noctua NH D14... - thinking to change it as it blocks the memory slots... it's a pain in the arse to flip memory modules...

jpotlacek
10-13-2013, 10:58 AM
I still didint OC my baby to 5ghz, tried 1s with 1.5 V but it crashed. When i am running 4.8Ghz on 1.48V on realbench my core is around 54 and Chip is 60. What are the higest the chip can go? On google most i found ppl said 62 ?

Zka17
10-13-2013, 11:17 AM
Yes, the recommended temps for 24/7 are between 60C and 65C... it's up to you if you want/dare to go above... - you do understand that there are no guaranties there, right?

I'm not so familiar with that Antec Kuhler... Where the fans on the rad are connected? Are they running at full blast?

BTW, your SP 4M run is amazing! Along with Chris' wPrime... - those are my target scores... but I'm still far away from them...

jpotlacek
10-13-2013, 11:25 AM
From watter block of Antec there is Y PWM cable where you connect your FANS. If the fans are PWN then you can control them trought Antec software. ( There is another cable going out that you need to connect to usb on Motherboard ). I have double SP120 High performance, as they are not PWN they cannot be controled trought antec software, and when they are running on 2400 they are loud, so i putted silencer ( diode ) , so they are running at 1860 or something. I had Corsair h80i but it broke, but i can say its 1 or 2 degree difrence. I like it, when i am on 4.6 my chip is not going over 48.
Hope i gave you enuff of information mate :D

Zka17
10-13-2013, 01:27 PM
Sorry for delay, jpotlacek, I've been busy with modding my system...

So, one advice... - connect those fans directly to the PSU while benching! Let them run a at their max... and don't use any silencer, you will need all the air they can push/pull through that rad...

Yes, they will be loud, but you gonna need to deal with that...

Zka17

Indeed but you love it.

It's true, I love both: modding and benching! :D

One question though... I'm changing the memory modules too - until now I've had 2x4GB, from now on would like to use 2GB modules... but then RB needs 4x2GB, while for the SP and WP 2x2GB is more than enough...

Nope you can use what ever memory configuration, amount or sticks that you like.

This AMD system did amazed me a lot - it definitely deserves better cooling! Now I'm making plans how to fit a custom loop in the HAF XB... or two loops, one separate for the mobo and one for the CPU...

For a nice AMD build, will need to find proper graphics card(s) too... even only on air-cooling - does not make too much sense to OC graphics on this platform for HWBOT... looking for some nice red and black card(s) which aren't too long (need the space for the rad)...
