Hah! Very good, an all time classic.

I'm going to push this 6950 a little harder with the support of my biggest fans.

I've done a little research to find that 6970 runs 1.175V stock and have pushed a little beyond that.

Small form dry ice is proving difficult to get out here in the boonies. I may have to buy a block and smash it up with a hammer in a pillow case or something........(the dry ice in the pillow case, not the hammer....)

The old hammer in a pillow case method...yeah....

The legs are a little skinny, but that's pretty much me forty years ago.

I'm going to have to work on my sentence structure.

There is a place literally five minutes walk from me that sells dry ice blocks. The closest place I've found that sells the "nugget" size is in Surrey, which is in relative terms, like going to the moon. Darn old relativity. EINSTEIN....................

Is diagnostic mode really necessary for benching if that's the only thing the PC is doing? I'm using the AMD Ryzen Balanced power plan, and it's a fairly slim install (no Asus AI suite or crap like that). I'm killing the Sonic Studio app prior to benching too, and haven't installed much else, other than benching software (CPUZ, OCCT, HWinfo64, MSI Afterburner). No Steam running either.
Lol - did we scare you away Bartacus with all of our so-called "tips"? Just run it & submit it. Any score is infinitely better than no score at all!

In other news, I'm benching i3 7350K right now for Stage 1.1. So somebody better have an i7 7700K!

LOL, I haven't had a chance to run numbers yet. If I do this, I want it done right, which will take time I'm kinda lacking at the moment.

If you are able to get in a run and you have time to post it, generally it is easier to submit on the HWBot.org site. Just put in the minimum requirements for the sub as adding a lot of system details usually results in frustration. At the end of the process there will be a pop up inviting you to participate in Team Cup.

You shoulda heard me giggling like a lunatic while I was putting together that little gif of the Valkyrie Method, as it is now known.

You are not using a compatible version of GPUPI for CPU - 100M: 2.2. You can download the latest version here: http://url.hwbot.org/1BRK3ky

EDIT: I take that back... PEBCAK and poorly designed website LOL
