Just out of curiosity - would RAM caching also have the same, totally-legal benefit with PC Mark 2005? Also - I assume the 'yep' was to setting specific test drives... what about the question about caching SSD arrays? I ask becase I have 2 x Force3 GT's in RAID0 on a SATA3 RAID card that I could potentially use for this.

I guess so yeah. Caching a SSD array? What do you mean, with Z68?

Ugh. I'm going to try to squeeze the most I can out of my system for 3dmark11 asap as I have to RMA my motherboard.

I suppose I don't really know what I mean. I'll just tool around with it some and see what happens.

Simply running PCM on a RAID array will be a big boost. It is really just a lot of experimentation on what will give better scores. Storage optimization is the main thing and CPU / mem clocks definitely help as well. I got a few points from GPU overclock but it was minimal. SLI did not help at all.

I wonder if a 9800 GX2 or a 4870x2 suffer from the same problem? Also I should be able to get the Celeron 450 under DICE tonight so I'm hoping to crack 1000sec with it. First time I have had the REX under DICE so I hope the insulation holds! LOL

Its bloody nerve wracking because you always worry that your insulation won't hold up properly or that you didn't do enough. Really its hard to tell until something happens. Which is why I usually don't sub zero any piece of hardware that I'm not prepared to throw in the trash. Sub zero only helps minimally for SB/E but the new AMD absolutely love the cold.

Hey peoples, eldonko sent me the link to the chat here so I figured I might as well get in & keep up.
Probably wouldn't have benched the 990x for wprime the other night if i knew eldonko was putting up a good score, I would have been better off trying to improve the 4x core score...
I'll have to work the 2600k & see if I can do better than a 2 second improvement there instead, would be better for the overall average.
