    That will help quite a bit. Also make sure you use the stilts program for 32m..

    I am trying to remember what the voltage setting for that is.. been benching 4770k lately.. i think its nb voltage depending on the board..

    Here's a result with an 8350 from a little while ago.. i have a 9370 to test very soon.

    The gigabyte board was ok, but limited memory quite a bit..

    The Asus cross hair i have is much better.

    Yea I just need to sit and play with it. From the looks of it I will have to push the memory quite a bit to keep ahead may break out the old single sided hcf0's and go for cas 6 clocks.

    Also try higher MHz... with higher cas... different amd boards tend to like different mem settings.

    Yea I am using the psc clocking bios now on mine. I may have to break out one of the others. Although with a 5ghz cap I may just push my b97 and ch3 up with 1800 cas 6.

    Chvf non-z for the 9370 with samsung ram. I have a xp disk I have just not cared enough to try. As a team caption I can't actually win anyway :p

    Do it just for fun.... everybody loves examples and it gives everybody a score to beat :)

    I'll post a quick and dirty Intel score in a bit as a good basis :)

    lapping doesn't make a massive difference unless you are already at optimal temps, I lapped mine and lost about 5*c now I can bench on a standard loop at stupid speeds and keep below 30*c on a coldish day!

    Not sure I agree.. i am seen the heatspreader on some chops way off.. A 4770k I did was so low in the middle the cooler didn't make decent contact at all.. i also delidded it and that made a huge difference. . Can bench 5ghz air all day long :)

    I might just lap my new 9370.. really depends if it's a decent chip.. others I'll rma

    my 8350 was pretty new and flat, you also got to lap both block and IHS.

    but again 5*c or near is a huge difference, no matter the ambients!

    Oh I know I'm not technically competing either just setting a benchmark for people to beat. Xp is installing now on one of my benchmark ssd's so we will see.

    I can't get 3Dmark 2001SE to run in win 7. I tried running it in different compatibility modes and a as admin but neither helped i still keep getting the 128MB of memory not found error.
