It's not always about the clock speeds...depending on the bench, that's secondary. Main thing is tweaking and selecting the proper os.
I got the ucbench2011 wr with less clocks than the second guy for example. (with a G620)

No, I was just willing to push them harder than most people. I spent many hours outdoors bundled up like an eskimo on the cold nights spending 6 hours to get a good 8 second superpi time, etc.
It is a money game too, that top of the line memory kit for a good pi time doesn't come cheap.

^^ Is there really any secret sauce to winning? Every time I read about a record being set there's some mention of "he didn't give all the details". Like he wrote a custom BIOS with access to a secret CPU voltage rail rolleyes.gif

You need to know how to tweak the software, what driver version is best, specific details of each benchmark program, of each piece of hardware...a whole bunch of stuff.

This, it's a game of time & patience. Not too hard to OC the cpu to the max, or the gpu, memory takes more time but it gets there. Finding all the tweaks & doing the testing to get the most out of a benchmark with the hardware being used can take a long time
Then trying to tie it all together for one great bench score is the real challenge.

Basically hardware plays it obvious part, but software does a lot too, yea I get that.

Fair enough. Although I thought it was a little warmer down in Vancouver than compared to Ontario?

It usually is warmer here, but we do get some cold nights in the winter. Before starting with extreme cooling I looked forward to them very much, although it usually didn't get colder than -10° or so. I still bench outdoors in winter when air cooling cards
At my old place I chopped a hole in the living room wall after a while so I could put the rig outside, running the cables through the hole so I could sit inside with the monitor, mouse & keyboard. Just had to go outside when I had to clear the cmos.

I benched some outside winter 2011 and a little bit early last winter. When running cables, clearing the CMOS is just an extra 2 wires to run and then you never have to be cold. Just keep the PSU on its own switchable socket.

I guess it wasn't really outside, but the rig was in the garage.

Interesting man. It does sound like fun though. Over here down in Florida, barely ever get to see cool days.
