    Now up to 8M 19s will post a screenshot tomorrow. With more tweaking I can do 8M 04 I'm sure or under 8M (my goal)

    8m 25 a long way from sub 8m Jimba,little tip use only XP run Robbos guide very easy to follow,use waza. Build the base then work on bios and memory

    Knowing your OS and your bios well will help with 2D and 3D

    Hey Bull, I've never run 32M on Win7 and only on XP. I assume you've run it on both and was just a little curious as to the time savings on XP. Jaime just grab an old 36gb Raptor for a few $$ and load up XP or even any old drive then really.

    iirc its like 10seconds+ gain straight up, nothing else changed.
    forget what config it was i tested that on but its about what you'd expect really.


    low 8mins should be possible with enough playing around, my SB times were essentially junk as i had not put in the time to learn the timings and waza side of things back then, only started to perfect my OS setup, get waza right and really learn memory timings at around ivy bridge launch, and took until haswell launched to get even close to competitive :eek:

    so yeah, based on my own experience with 32M,
    dont expect that sub 8mins anytime tooo soon, jimba :lol:

    Yeah I haven't really tried it Scott but have sort of seen enough to know,prob what t8y says 10s not sure tho ,was going to load up a 32bit W7 and tweak it and see what sort of times I get.Not expecting anything great but everything you do try is something else you learn :)

    My fault mate and I don't think I've updated my time either. Also thanks t8y/Bull for the replies.

    I'm working on learning the bios as it's all new to me. Good tips bull.

    I'm trying to find another 36gb raptor for XP 2D and 3D stuff. I don't have any spare drives that don't have important data on them. So does anyone have a spare raptor they want to flick?


    No time soon but I'll keep trying!! This is all new to me. I just want the record for top 2500K and I'll be happy. :leet: current best is 8M 19s (in 7)

    Blame Scott.. Its wasn't me! :p

    :lol: Oh now I get it. Whoops, forgot this was 4Ghz thread. It's too early in the morning. Need more coffee.

    The word 'record' gets used far to freely.

    True to an extent really and Jimba your still 10s off and once you get XP going and follow Robs guide you could get close mate. Just get another drive for benching buddy and not an SSD as it's usually a bitch for XP.

    Just some quick testing at full freq no waza or OS tweaks really,having few moisture problems and should get this to pass when I test again

    KingPin Gemini -130 and EK Memory pot -165, and Z97 OCf that has seen 50 cold memory sessions,with some tuned PSC

    still looking for another drive for XP (anyone got a cheap 74GB raptor or two?) so still on win 7.

    testing these new GTX3 sticks I got. 2 sticks and still need to test the third.

    Almost at personal best of 8M 19s.

    Jimba86 - 8M 20.168 {i5-2500K}, Ram @ 1066 ~ 8-11-7-28

    For those that want to try cold memory benching with dice :)
    I am not responsible for anyone trying this and damaging their hardware, is @ your own risk and going cold can sometimes damage hardware if not fully prepped motherboard

    Couple of quick -60c stability memory test Ive just done for anyone interested,is a really great way for those getting into cold memory.The KP Ney pro is a great memory pot suited for this as you can leave the HS on while you practice your craft @ these manageable temps,both of these runs only required about 700mls of LN2.Depending on bin quality of your memory and imc also help in how much you can push your memorys

    Just to note depending on your memory they will hit a dram volts wall @ -60c,going over this wall will cause 32m to fail quite quickly as is the case when running full pot -170+ temps.Basically find your wall of dram volts @ at your current temps.

    Will push the memory a little more later and post few more results


    CPU- retail Pentium -SS @ -25
    Motherboard - retail Z97 OCF
    Memory -some Gskill Pi average bin 2.0volts -60c
    Memory pot- KP Ney Pro


    8-12-8-28 @ 2856Mhz -60 ,2.0v rtls,iols 40-41-4-4

    7-11-7-28 @ 2800Mhz -60,2.0v rtls ,iols 38-39-4-4
