Ill loan you my PI killer mem bro, but if you kill it it will be renamed Soullessone21 killer mem because you will be dead.

There is always a trade off between speed and timings and depending on the platform 2200-2400 at 6-9-6 or 7-9-7 is sometimes better than 2600-2800 with loser timings like 11-13-11 or similar. For example on sandy tighter mem was better (see below) but on ivy mem can clock so high that sometimes raw speed is better.

PI loves mem timing, running your ram at 2200 but 9-11-10-28 and my scores are 5 seconds longer.

Going to try to drop the timing down lots and leave it at 1600mhz and try again as the system gets broken down soon.

Surely you can do better than that with an SR-2 Mr. 3.0, maybe something more like this,

LCB001`s SuperPi - 32M score: 9min 20sec 406ms with a Xeon E5520_

also dual CPU with 1333 ram...

Oh snap! Call out 3.0 on the last day of the contest, and Easter Sunday to boot! Now that's what I call sandbagging!

And yeah, contest closes today at 11:59PM EDT or 8:59PM PDT. Get those entries in if you haven't already! New contest starts tomorrow (tonight). Stay tuned for details!

I was planning on posting that score a little earlier but it slipped what's left of my mind.

In the end I figured it should still be enough time for a Old-timer like 3.0 with his vast experience to whip up something better.

Shouldn't take him more than 10-15 minutes ...

It seems that most any benching takes HOURS if your really trying to push the sand.......
