yes! I might be get my hands on a 57x cpu validation I should just order my WC parts

This is what I was thinking, DICE/LN2 is the way to go for the highest scores but if you are new to benching you should really try it out for a while & see if it's something you really like & will stick with before buying specialized equipment & hardware like pots that are useful only for benchmarking.
Water cooling is a good start & will still be useful for the 1155 & future rigs whatever you're using a rig for.

Water Cooling parts -
CPU freq gain over high end air stability wise - 150-200Mhz on SB, 50-100 Mhz benching
Cost over air - $300 to 450...

Nice used CPU pot-
$125-150
CPU gain over high end air benching? A LOT less voltage... and 100-200 Mhz. (Still wont solve max multi though)
Insulation - $15
DICE/LN2 - $15-20 dice, 20-50 LN2
There is no use killing a chip that needs 1.6v+ on water to do 5.6 in 32M when you can do it at considerably safer voltages (or even the same voltage, but safer) cold...

is there a happy medium between freezing a cpu as well as using it for 24/7?

hmmm, so I have a chip that can do supierpi 32 and 1m at 54x, if I get a new chip that does better do my points add up?

Yes, each time you improve your score you will move up in the ranks, thus giving you more points. They will add to your previous points.

This is the way that I go, I don't even own a Sandybridge setup. I don't even own anything better than my trusty e8600. I get a much greater kick out of destroying old hardware that I pick up for dollars on Kijiji and eBay. Right now benching for the June HWBOT challenge, but the old AMD 462 platform is giving me trouble. I got the board free from a guy looking to get rid of it and I'm pretty sure I blew up a Sempron 3000+ last night that I got for $5. I'm know I wouldn't laugh as hard as I did last night when the chip booted, then died and wouldn't boot again, if it had been a 2600K.

Although there is nowhere near the point available but they also don't leak away when new platforms arrive.

Just my two cents.

so is the point system like say my max multi on my chip is 55x and i submit a score for 50x then up my multi at 55x and submit the score again. Will I get a better score that way or is it the same as it would be if I just submit my 55x score only?
post #30 of 40
You can never have a two scores inside the same benchmark for the same hardware. So if you submit say a SuperPi score using your 50x multi and grab some points but then redo the benchmark using 55x and it comes out better. When you submit the new score your old score is zeroed and only your new (better) score is counted towards your total.
