I'm guessing water is gonna be a have to thing to get ok participation. Doesn't bother me any at all if that's what you guys want.

I'm glad I wasn't able to respond when I first read this. At first I was all for it, but now I'm not so sure. I'm kinda 50/50 on capping the uncore too. If we do it, it needs to be atleast 4.2ghz maybe?

Well I think everyone needs to be reasonable here. I mean if you want to pay the power bill to pull your house down to 60f to bench then I don't have a problem with it. I think chilled air/water or pouring ln2 on the hsf kinda goes against the spirit of what we are trying to do here. If this was for some good prizes then I'd say go for it, but the goal here is to have fun and get everybody excited and active benching again; myself included.


Maybe we can add some cheap prizes later, but really I just want to have fun, talk some shit and learn some tweaks for pifast. Now just wait till Kal gets in here. That guy can talk some smack.


@ Honda - what pot is that? Plus how many damn pots do you have? Please don't tell me you have as many pots as you do ram kits

Alrighty guys what do you think about this?

- Air/Water only
- No chilled water, force inducted chilled air cooling. If you want to bench in a 60f house then that's fine.
- CPU mhz cap at 4ghz?
- Uncore mhz cap at 4.2ghz? I'm 50/50 on this. 4.2ghz still leaves room for high ram clocks.

Tell me what you guys want so we can finalize the rules and adjust the dates. It has been discussed to maybe throw in a cheap VGA for HTPC or 2d benching usage. That's not final though.

I think cooling won't matter if it is capped at 4 Ghz

mem timings should be static as well ....

That is true if the uncore is capped too. If it's not then cooling matters a ton. We won't have any non sub-zero guys playing if they gotta go against someone with a ss and pushing 4.8ghz+ uncore.

I don't want to cap timings at all. I am curious what guys can find out about how pifast responds to certain timings. Think of this contest as a massive tweak and test session. I know guys with hypers are going to have an advantage, but I think it could still be close. I'm gonna try finishing up some 32m testing tonight and then start on pifast in between 1156 testing. This month is starting to look like fun for me.
