There is two parts to this thread, one for stability and the other for benchmarking. Please don't get the two mixed up!! The benchmarking is just for fun, a bit of healthy competition amongst sandybridge users!! The main purposes of this thread has not and will not be derailed and will continue as it is, primarily focusing on stability. The benchmarking section is open to EVERYONE, not just the stable people
Benchmarking via SiSoftware Sandra
Make sure you run each of the processor benchmarks, Processor Arithmetic, Processor Multi-Media, Cryptography and Multi-Core Efficiency, .
With all four benchmarks you will add up the 'points' and have a total for each, then all four will be added to give you a TOTAL score.
ONE SIMPLE RULE
Make sure two instances of CPU-Z is open, one for RAM and the other for core speed and make sure you have notepad open with your OCN name!!!
All SiSoftware Sandra benching must follow this
If it's not like the above, then it won't be accepted, simple as!!
**System may be unresponsive during the benchmarks, be patient and it will finish.
I have created a sheet for BIOS templates
, it could be a reference point to other's including oneself and a quick 'copy and paste'
whenever required in other threads/posts etc.
Those that have posted their stable systems please
spare a few minutes of your time to do this. One more thing, these are the ones im after:
- Main BIOS page (The advanced settings main page)
- Full AI tweaker Page including DRAM Timing control
- CPU Configuration Page
Spreadsheet contains voltage info, temperature info, cooling info, BIOS templates and seperate sheets hava been created for all of those, including one which filters the i5 and i7. This should be helpful to SB users and those looking to get SB, it also helps provide real world data regarding how the coolers are performing, what temps people are getting with the overclocks and at what kind of votlages, I think that it s a great addition to OCN and one that SB and non SB users can benefit from.
Thanks to all that contributed to this thread and spreadsheet, would not have been possible without you guys
We currently have just over 100 members and we are looking for MORE
SO GET POSTING GUYS BUT REMEMBER TO FOLLOW THE RULES!!!!
And again thanks to all those participated, we have some excellent club members here!!!!
