Things i would do different..for sure i would take a other power supply..where i have the exhaust from the psu to the back..now the warm air blows into the case!
And he can simple at two fan's more to get a push pull configuration..win a few degrees!
>PC Pr0n photos
Now at 4.2Ghz ... Sorry pics are not to great had to take em with a camera
Zap Mex at over 10500 KNS
Rybka 4 without large pages
Wow, 917. What do you get in Rybka 3?
Would be interesting to compare it with Sedat's benchmark. Seems like the 40-core cluster is still a ways away but these cpus are catching up all the time.
Yes I am aware of Lukas' upgrades since then..
and with Zappa 4.800 kN/s
It seems the new computer will be 3 times as fast as a skully, that's the equivalent of 24 cores! So each core is like twice the speed
>I get 536 with my 980 at 4.02
I get 710 at 4.5Ghz with my 980
The first one is ~0.13333 kn/s per mhz, and next one is ~0.16 kn/s per mhz. An increasing return on clockspeed? Well I suppose the cpu clock isn't the only factor.
That's ~0.025 kn/s per mhz every increase of 480 mhz. At this rate 9300 mhz (over 9000) will yield a whopping 3813 kn/s!
Surely there are no serious hurdles in overclocking a 980 that far? :o)
Not sure what you are saying? the only other thing I can add is that I had LP running although I must admit that tends to be hit or miss for me whether the KNS goes up or down
> Not sure what you are saying?
He's saying that the nodes per second don't increase linearly with hertz added, they increase higher than that, so that if you doubled the computer speed, the nodes would multiply by 5.
It could be an error on Vas's node recalculation, but there is evidence that the stronger the computer is, the higher Rybka overperforms (i.e. also not linear, I think it's a bug that weakens Rybka at slow hardware, it has yet to be tested).
>Hmmm, I need to try 4.5 looks like
When I get back from Cuba I am gonna try 5Ghz
>What mobo are you useing
For the 980X a Asus Rampage Extreme 3
>the best in my opinion yet, not to many use it in the engine room..why is that?
That is a tough one to answer, it may simply be that others (and I assume we are talking about the Asus Rampage Extreme 3) bought there motherboards before the ARE3 hit the market. I have not played in the engine room for some 2 years so am not in a position to know what setups people are running
>Because you can kibitz just as well with your macro running on a P4 machine!
I wish I could kibitz (I think) the decent games with a macro but sadly I have to collect chess games like everyone else, unless you have a macro and instructions on how to use it you want to send me
On another note as I am a Chessbase 10 user the makers certainly don`t help owners with large databases ... The new CB11 seems to have a some new fluffy bits but no news on speeding up of database searches, sorting, removal of doubles etc etc etc
even with my lesser hardware i can still play good chess.
By the way if you are using Win 7 you can use the built in utility to clip an image of the screen (it is the pair of scissors). Otherwise you have Hypersnap which is also very good.
>Have you tried testing the motherboard on phase? If these processors + motherboard combo can get to 5 Ghz then it might become irresistible.
It is not my comp I am only building it for Paul (NATIONAL12) but personally I believe 5Ghz is more than poss on phase maybe even on a waterchiller.
You have to remember this is Pauls comp and I will not go crazy with the voltages especially on air. I use snagit 10 on my comp to do screen captures but i am still on XP64, I really ought to get up to date with windows 7
>Well if you can handle and not think to much as a chess player..run this test for me and see if you can compare with the big guys
with the talk of big guys I thought you meant down the gym deadlifting 300Kg lol ....Give me a little time to finish tweaking the memory the latencies are still poor the BIOS does not have the options of my Asus Rampage 3 Extreme http://www.hiarcs.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=3619
2 or 4 of those should be sweet.
Your reasons for moving away from phase cooling are basically the same as mine .... I updated the BIOS to the A47 one which added a few new options and is supposed to help memory OC ...
An option in the BIOS is EXTREME COOLING which has 2 modes, the first for below 0C and the second for below -50C but that is all it says and does not give any clues t what it does, maybe it increases voltages across the board? it was like having a red button in front of you with `do not press` printed on it and you know you want to press it lmao but I resisted ... I did test that Arena2+cyclone xtreme bench thingy but the result was the same at stock speed as it was at 4.2Ghz I must have done something wrong I may return to that problem later all other benchies increase dramatically.
The new BIOS has the option to play with UNCORE which I hope will get rid off the poor memory latencies
The main problem with the Skulltrail was that it was using FBDIMMS which get incredibly hot. I mean you can singe your fingers if you touch the memory and it is not actively cooled. I did have a plan to super cool the memory and MCH, but got interested in other things. My guess is I could have pulled in another .4 Ghz out of the system and gotten 5.2 Ghz stable. I could get it to 5.2 Ghz but it would crash Prime 95 although it could run the Fritzmark test successfully. With non FBDIMMS I think a large limiting factor is gone. You have to remember that when you vapor cool a CPU, you are actually reducing dramatically the pathways of electrons. That means much less "friction" when electrons move around as they have much more theoretical space. So at default voltages you should find that you can run the system at dramatically faster speeds simply because there is less resistance for the electrons. Of course you can push things to a higher level by pushing voltages, but then you have to keep an eye on heat. Maybe if you watercool the MCH (if it has something like that) and the memory you can get better performance, but then things start to get quite complicated. I think watercooling in general is quite robust if you have the right parts, but you really have to have experience in setting it up properly and have proper ingredients in the coolant and the proper piping and HS (avoid acrylic at all costs) to avoid eventual fouling.
What is your memory setup? 6x2 GB?.
>What did you use for thermal paste? No mouse pad ? : )
Thermal paste is Artic Silver 5 ... No need for a mouse pad as it works fine and I am only testing.
Got to tweak the memory as the latencies are poor ATM and although I have not put any pics up the Everest CPU benchmarks are staggering
The Fritz benchmark prg is totally out of date and only benchies upto 8 cores
>What is your memory setup? 6x2 GB?.
It is not mine but NATIONAL12`s (aka Paul) machine and yes at the moment Paul has 6x2GB with 6 more mem slots free
i would like to have a result with HT and without HT !!
Then you have no problem anymore with this Fritz benchmark.
was getting old and would be the last hardware you would buy in your life.
Congratulations, long life to you, Paul!
