24min 45.123secs

POW! Ninja'd for first place!
Hey Rasparthe! I can't recall if we specifically decided about team-ony subs, so I'll let DT field that one...keep posting times, we can always delete you later

You got it right about Wazza, I'll see what I can do about a guide. In the meantime, anyone interested can have a look at one of the best at work,

You guys are awesome! As an added bonus, you can use superpi as a timer for baking cakes or something

This is what you get when playing with MPs and 1333 ram, and beer.

N/A ZZ, you're over the 4GHz limit.

I'm a bit perplexed here.... I thought superpi was a single threaded app.... how does running an MP rig improve crunching 4 fold?

Anyway just thought I'd add that the easy way to waza is to google "OCX SPi Tweaker." One other thing I'd like to mention that with eXPerience's MicroXP, Olive is not the default theme, classic is. So you'll generally get better scores with classic if you use MicroXP or Micro2003.

I'll also share this (attached), just because Eldonko was kind enough to share it with me a couple years ago. Add this to your registry (by double clicking on it) to auto enable Large System Cache and a few other helpful tweaks. Don't add this if you're using a daily driver OS, though - only for tweaked benching OS's!

Standings will be updated later tonight. I just wanna enjoy being in first for a little bit longer...

No added value going MP for benching with spi. That board is my new / old sandbox for the time being.

Honestly I was unsure whether to include PCIlock, in my testing it seemed to have no or negative effect... perhaps it works in different set ups.

A few tools I uploaded for those who want to try them out:

BenchTec toolbox BenchTec_Toolbox.exe

Ocxspi tweaker ocxspitweaker_v1.0.8.zip

GTL(GigabyteTweakLauncher) gtlsetup.exe

MemTweakIt MemtweakIt-1017-setup.exe

Cpu tweaker CPU-Tweaker.zip

You're most welcome to participate Rasparthe, and we certainly appreciate having you join us. Unfortunately, it's going to have to be on an exhibition basis only. We'll include your score in the leaderboard, but you won't earn points towards the Championship Cup Series.

Unless of course...
