Got some new toys today. Athlon x2 370K and an R7 260X.
And I must say I'm very impressed with the Athlon x2 370K it get 3100pps in HWbot prime @ stock that's only 42% behind an A10 6800K @ 4.6ghz. So I suspect AMD is cutting a core from each module not an entire module because if they did this should be scoring a lot worse in the 2300pps area.

Ok so I'm running into a problem. I can't get the Athlon above 3300pps even though I increase core frequency by 20% from 4ghz to 4.8ghz I'm still getting 3100-3250pps. So I was wondering if anyone has any tips for me to get it to score higher.

yeah that's the submission I found when looking around for someone else without a 3Dmark11 license
Could be but I gotta pull my G.skills from my main rig to test that because these corsair vengeance stick are some of the worst ram I ever tried to OC it won't do more than 1600mhz on 9-9-9-24 even at 1.8V.

HWbot prime likes low latency and High CPU frequency. I went from 4.8GHz and 1600 9-9-9-24 to 4.9GHz and 1412 7-8-7-25 which got me from 3100-3280 to 3389pps. I'm gonna see if I can run 1100 5-6-5-16. It also helps to set the java.exe priority to high and all other tasks to low priority. Currently benching on Win7 using 700MB of RAM with no Mobo drivers and no GPU drivers.

5-6-5-16 doesn't work gonna see 5-6-5-21 might.

OK 5-6-5-21 doesn't work either damn this is terrible ram.

Got 3416pps without OS optimizations optimized score coming.
OS optimizations got me 3460.81pps so my 60$(CZ price converted) athlon is basically on par with a 150$(CZ price converted) i3 3220.
Also 10.3 Global Points YAY.
Dammit I had the wrong version of HWbot Prime had to redo with 0.8.3 to get the exact same score.

I got a picture of my water cooled GTX 590 up on my blog with a guide on how to mount the coolers I used. Unfortunately the 30C drop of load temperatures did nothing for the cards overclock ability so I still have to get the E-powers if I want to OC at all.
Here's a link to the post.

I need to get myself organized right now. I'm finally gonna be doing my hard drive re organization this weekend(move OS from 5400RPM drive to 7200RPM drive, Install 2 copies of XP, Install 2 copies of 7). After all that I'm gonna do Cinebench Wprime and SuperPi Aquamark 3Dmark 2001, 2003, Vantage, 2011 and Fire strike.
Unfortunately I spent a rather significant portion of my money on music(Pig Destroyer is just soooo good) so v modding the GTX 590 is getting delayed. I did however figure out how to add Vcore check points to the cheap A88X board I have so that should help with OCing the 370K I have.

BTW how do you install XP and 7 on the same HDD because If I remember correctly one of them breaks the other.

Im doing a few installs this weekend as well lol

Always XP first as the bootloader is different to the others. win7 and 8 can recognize xp's but xp's can't recognize theres.

Also always all the vital drivers and display drivers. dont worry about updates.

In msconfig, services tab. Disable all. Then select/enable WMI, log event, futuremark sys, windows installer, intel management, drivers, plugnplay, (themes for spi32)

(ill probably remember more later)

Im doing a few installs this weekend as well lol

Always XP first as the bootloader is different to the others. win7 and 8 can recognize xp's but xp's can't recognize theres.

Also always all the vital drivers and display drivers. dont worry about updates.

In msconfig, services tab. Disable all. Then select/enable WMI, log event, futuremark sys, windows installer, intel management, drivers, plugnplay, (themes for spi32)

(ill probably remember more later)
I run 2 install of each OS to have 1 for 3D and 1 for 2D. Since the 2D doesn't actually need any display drivers I stick with the stock windows ones.

i thought that, but 2D definitely needs gfx drivers. not sure why but it improves the scores. especially superpi

2x 290x's on hwbot on stock, the best firestrike was a touch over that score. you should score 2nd. nice run man!

if you need any other tips or advice, just ask!
