Why are this many people so busy with trying to convince others windows 8 is bad :wtf:

Seriously, this isnt even a thread about windows 8, but still it feels like people come at it to bash win8 like flies are attracted to shi.. Poo!

I mean, its not a bad OS to use(seriously), it was actually really cheap(30 dollar/euro when it came out), and technically one of the most advanced OS-es ever made.

Noone comes to linux or old windows related threads to bash those OS-es because of their worse support or worse user friendliness now do they.



If you don't own windows 8, and didn't ever bother to properly test/use it for like a month of daily use, then imho you simply don't have a lot of right to say stuff about it.
So quit posting stuff about windows 8 already!





On topic: Has anyone heard anything about if this has been found on any platform besides Haswell yet? Looks to me atm that the problem is confined to users combining Haswell overclocking during the running of windows 8.

And we complain so that the vendors hear us and understand that whatever they may think is good, isn't necessarily so. Your opinion matters, so do ours. It's important that opinions are made known, so that it benefits us all in the future.

Maybe it would not be a problem if it's accurately wrong , just add or subtract ...or not .
If it can be predicted, the scores might be able to be adjusted, but that's a bit like someone winning a race and then saying "We'll just measure your legs to adjust your final time" and then taking the medal back. Slightly unfair and not precise enough for benchmarks.

I think it's more like using steroids to win the race.

Sort of...

Bottom line is, its no big deal. Its so easy to fudge. For example, lower the bclk, run a bench, raise bclk and mutli to match. So say you can't get a bench to run at 5.5GHz but can capture SS there, but can run it at 5.2Ghz. Lower the bclk, run it, then back up to 5.5 with 5.5Ghz type scores.

You have 14 posts in this thread and have been the cause of the thread going of topic on a couple occasions. I think that is plenty to get your point across. Time to let others discuss the actual topic.

Thank you.
