I had done all my optimizations, tested many times and everything was absolutely stable and first time I felt that I had total control on the scores. I had find the golden setup for my H/W and I got 415000 points all the time -/+ some points, if I made some minor tweaks. I was ready to give up, because I couldn't imagine what was the extra thing that can give me 5000 extra points. Then I decided to go for a walk in BIOS, just to check everything again.
    This settings are of them, that my mind never gave second thought. I was saying, Ok it's some Intel stuff that do something but who knows, what really do. After that, I had a second thought. I thought that this thing, maybe it serves as a buffer to optimize some functions. Maybe in our case that we need something like fast streaming of DATA, acts as a brake.
    So, I disabled Hardware prefetcher, Adjacent cash line prefetch and something above them which serves as a protection for malicious code. Reboot, loaded tweaked driver, adjusted GPU OC and I gave it a run. First splash screen and my jaw hitted the floor. 420200 points!!! That was 5000 bonus by just turning one button. From that floor, yes, I could reach somehow 1000 points.... I used that to run one 3dmark also. Gave some extra points and I felt it flow better but nothing like Aqua. I didnt used it for wPrime, so I do not know if there is an effect there.

    Nice job to all - congrats to flexnl, nikosa43 and Menthol!

    Special thanks to HiVizMan for organizing this Challenge! I'm sure, we learned a lot from this one too and also sure that in couple weeks we all will be able to have high scores in these benchmarks...

    Nikos yeah that makes a huge difference in 2D benching too.

    With 3D benching and especially 2001SE benching you need to find a motherboard that is the most efficient at the benchmark. I do not think that the Maximus V Extreme is that good for this benchmark. I have way better scores with other boards, the gene is very good for 2001 I found. And I test maybe 5 of each board to see what board is the most efficient.

    Another thing you can do is disable all the services in BIOS that you do not need. So no lan no sound no USB3 stuff like that. You want the bare minimum working. That is why cheap no frill boards are often more efficient than the expensive enthusiast boards. BUT they do not last long. The Extreme lasts really long under Sub-Zero conditions. So too the Gene by the way.


    Pleased you all enjoyed yourselves.

    And you have to provide a photo to support your benching claim you in your mankini and your hardwear (pun intended) in one photo. So lads start looking on eBay on Amazon for those mankini's the only way to sizzle.
