No tweaks, hacks, or human interaction that in any way alters or modifies windows timing in any way or tricks the benchmark into thinking it completed faster than it truly did run.
i am not sure i fully understood this part
no tweaks at all? like no wazza or anything like that?

Wazza and all of that are fine. I am referring to tweaks that Trick the os or benchmark from a timing perspective to believe that time was passing slower than it actually did.

In other words cheating. Like using a higher clock frequency and dropping cpu frequency to make the alloted clcok speed minimum.

In normal words, only one of 3 are going to win (we know who they are). As it is all about the tweaks. OCAers dont cheat, it would mean instant expulsion. Tweaking though is shared heavily and expect the top 20 to all be contenders at the bot for that GHz

My goal is to beat Ricks semp140 on my 890GX setup
Hoping he accepts the challenge for a win 7 HTPC ready OS bench. IE whatever you tweak spi for must still work as an HTPC.
whats so bad about the NF200? i keep on hearing it but never understood it

I am confused by this ?? How is changing these two parameters considered cheating Isn't this the reason people buy unlocked procs, to have more options?

Did I read this wrong ?

I could never get that Chinese OS to work so I'm at a disadvantage already.
