    man ln2 benching is tougher than you think.

    killed my ivy bridge at 6.8ghz, nothing was wet and was always half a pot or more. crashed and never came back.

    got a 2700k to throw in to test mobo and that borked my bios.

    6.8Ghz on ivy is pretty high. Especially on a CPU that you didn't choose through a binning process. Did you get a frequency validation shot before it died? Because our team record is 6678Mhz so you could have raised us up the HWbot rankings a couple places.
    I also got an LN2 pot but I plan to use it for doing some research into CPU power consumption scaling and if the CPU and Mobo survive I'm gonna see how far I can push my Athlon X2 370K.

    Nice. Your competition is much tougher than mine there is one guy in the CZ who managed to get me out of 1st place but once I noticed I got myself back to the top. I currently have a 4.2 point lead on him so hopefully I'll be safe until autumn comes

    Overall I'm 224th in Enthusiat League world wide I managed to get into top 200 but then the summer hit so I'm not benching my GPUs. I think I could get back to top 200 but it's way too damn hot.

    Excuse my ignorance but I clicked the link but still I make no sense of it besides winning dodgcoins.

    What is this hwbot thing anyways?

    hwbot.org is where everyone posts/submits benchmarking scores, in order to gain points and compete.

    The competition is to raise awareness and a little thanks to all those that help on forums.

    Hey just have a quick question should I:
    Build a 1200W TEC cooler capable of cooling a 500W load to bellow -5C° and a 400W load to bellow -10C°. You can tell from the wattage I designed this to cool Haswell-e but if I make it I won't have a Haswell-e CPU to cool only an Athlon X370K, FX6350 and my 3960X(which everyone knows doesn't scale with cold).
    Get X99

    If you buy my WCed RIVE + 3960X + 16GB ram I could probably do both.
    About the RIVE I don't have the stock heatsinks for it. I cut one of the ram slots in half by accident and one of the PCI-e slots is missing the little clip. And the water blocks look like they need a cleaning but everything works and there are zero issues with the board the blocks keep my 3960X sub 70 even at 5Ghz and 1.55V running IBT. I'll even include the CPU block you'll just need a pump res and radiator(360mm is enough). The only real complaint you could have is that yours truly was the owner of said 3960X and I did not treat it very kindly taking it all the way to 1.725V for a few minutes and used it for several years at or above 1.5V so it might need a little bit of work to get running at 5Ghz again because something is definitely unstable when I try to run 5Ghz + 2400 10-12-12-34 I just can't be bothered figuring out what it is(I suspect the BIOS because I recently switched to a more up to date one when I always used the launch day BIOS and was fine).

    There's a certain OC4DOGE low budget competition running right now. A low clocked intel Haswell a good winXP copy wazza and well clocked PSC memory could certainly win you that.

    Tried to fit a memory stick in the wrong way round. I didn't even use much force and the DIMM went through the little plastic ridge that is supposed to stop you from putting the RAM in wrong. I was seriously surprised and horrified by what I did but the slots still works so I don't think it's much of a problem. If that stick of ram ever dies I'm gonna use it instead of a knife.

    Oh, ok, so the slot itself is fine, you just crushed down the little orientation notch? No biggie there.
    The way you worded it, I had thought you physically broke the slot in half, like only half of it was still on the board or something.
