    Software optimizations like shutting down as many services as possible, using windows XP or testing different compatibility modes, shutting down as many tasks as possible, setting high priority and running it on the fastest core. With all these(on win 7) you can shave up to 2 seconds of your time and if you switch to xp you can get an even bigger boost.

    WCG Birthday Challenge.

    Hey guys!

    I know most of you know about our WCG Team here on TPU, so, it should come as no surprise that we, the Team and I, would really love it if some of You, HWBot benchers, would find it your hearts, and CPU's, to help make TPU the absolute winner in this current challenge, that we came in 2nd for last year.

    Here's the News: http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?t=194391

    Here's our Thread: http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?p=3015383#post3015383

    There are Prizes!

    Now, WE all know that TPU is the best, right?

    Help us show the rest of the World we are the best. Combining our resources, Crunchers and Benchers, we will undoubtedly win!

    Crunching is the way we cruncher's test for stability. Most of us, maybe not most but a large percent, have multiple systems crunching in this Challenge. We almost took it last year, on our lonesome. We, combined, can crush them!

    Do it for TPU. Do it for Science. Do it to test your computer. Do it to win!!!

    :lovetpu: Show your love.

    Thanks for listening! Hope to see you, over there. :D

    One, being me, is planning on it. I have a 4770k and 2500k I plan on using. Might even get around to it today.

    Of course. I don't crunch at my highest overclocks. Right now I find crunching on my i7 4770K @ 4.4GHz in my comfort zone.

    cool :)

    you have some cool hardware which would net you some impressive boints if you ran a full suite hammer :)

    i plan on retesting my pc tonight with slower ram speeds to see how/if it changes anything but will set it up tomorrow night when i get home from work and join in for the last week.

    looking at the scores if a few more do the same we have a chance of catching up :D

    I would love to but, currently I only have an i5 laptop. I have plans to get my farm back and running but, even those would be a bit lame at benching (See system link). Although I have O/Ced each of them, except for this laptop...can't. :cry:

    Someday, I plan to bench a bit. But, need to find a place to live, first!

    Meanwhile, I Crunch with my i5-er and try to help as best I currently can. As do my teammates, many of whom have decent stuff but, won't take time off of Crunching to tweak their systems for a Bench. Some do, as is evident in the last couple of posts.

    As I said before, together we can dominate this challenge. Only 5000 points qualifies for all of the prizes. I figure most of you could do that in a day!

    Crunching helps promote the fight on Aids, cures for Cancer and the advancement of biological solar energy (much cleaner than the silicone used in most grids). Plus many more projects to come and are finished.

    Help TPU win! Help make the world a better place. Win, Win, right?
