Good scores! I gotta focus on the Feb Challenge this weekend, but I'm really looking forward to trying to catch you! Realistically it's going to take me some time, though, and I probably won't be able to post any scores until around the 10th or 11th. I have zero experience with the hardware I'll be using - it's all new to me.

Well I figure I will be lucky to stay in the points once the pros get into it. But my 7970 and raided force 3s ought to get me into second spot in pcmark for now.

Not sure if you've seen the pcm05 tweaking thread on the bot PCMark05 Tweaking Thread - hwbot.org , there's some great stuff in there.
Not sure if I can get a good raid card in time or not, still debating whether or not to get a dewar of ln2 to get some backup scores. I swore to stop the ln2 for a couple months when I bought the cascade...

Thanks for the info, very interesting stuff there. To be honest, i never do any of these tweaks, my scores are just the way they are installed other than CCC settings.

This is the one I use for pcm05: Newegg.ca - HighPoint RocketRAID 640 PCI-Express 2.0 x4 SATA III (6.0Gb/s) Controller Card

Got it for around $80+tax with free shipping from Amazon a few months ago. Certainly not the best RAID card ever made, but good enough for me and the price was certainly right.

Well. That's all I can do for now. Too lazy to reinstall to a raid array. But second place in all categories isn't too bad for simple water cooling and a single ssd. Gotta get bad to my X79-UD3 review......

Arg! I hate to do this, but... I concede defeat. Work and a sick kid have conspired to sap me of all my spare time. I hoped beyond hope that I might have an opportunity tonight to spend some time on it but alas, I'm stuck at the office.

Good work kirbster. You win this round. Hopefully next time, I'll be able to provide at least some measure of opposition.

Nice job kirbster! Darn good showing using enthusiast cooling, way to go

DT: Hope mini-DT gets better soon, nice to see you're still in the top spot.
