Running Aquamark3

post #1 of 39
Thread Starter 
There have been a few questions around and about regarding Aquamark3 - what to run it on and how to get it to work. So here is my guide.

Aquamark3 can be run in WindowsXP 32-bit or Windows7 64-bit (these tend to give the best results). It is primarily a CPU/Memory benchmark, and on the GPU having fast memory is paramount.

Things you will need:

Aquamark3 Download: http://91.121.148.119/downloads/benchmarks/HWBOT-aquamark3-1.0-Setup.exe (includes 64-bit patch and wrapper)

Step by step:

a) download and install the file above
b) Goto C:\Program Files (x86)\Aquamark3
c) Delete direcpl.dll
d) rename Aquamark.exe to Aquaman.exe
e) Goto C:\Program Files (x86)\HWBot Aquamark3
f) Run wrapper.exe, click 'Run Benchmark'
g) A popup will come up asking where aquamark.exe is. Goto C:\Program Files (x86)\Aquamark3 and select Aquaman.exe
h) run benchmark
i) exit benchmark
j) Open up 3x CPU-Z (CPU, Memory, Motherboard)
k) Open up 1x GPU-Z
l) Press 'Take Screenshot' in the wrapper
m) Press 'Save result' in the wrapper

Don't forget tweaks!

XP: Set Affinity
Level of Detail (LOD)
AMD Performance settings (using ATi Tools)
Sometimes BenchTec Toolbox, disabling services works in XP but not always

Thanks, was wondering how the wrapper was going to work on the name change, sometimes it’s less complicated than your mind wants to make it.
