Rollback what?
In XP I had trouble submitting too, and both the XP and Vista were fresh installs. Both with and without the patch I have the submitting-problem. I downloaded PCM05 again, installed it again, didn't solve it...

I had the same troubles on my Opteron-on-L1N64 sli runs too. That was a dirty XP. The only common thing is that I use my iRAMs.

rollback of the patch? ;)
but since you have it with/without, nothing much to suggest :/

It's friday and the end of this MSI-contest is getting closer. Benching PCMark05 is fun, but it isn't part of the contest, so it's time to move over to 3DMark03 and SuperPi 1M.

For the moment, my best result in SuperPi 1M is this 11.250 with the QX9650 @ 4117MHz.
This board (Gigabyte GA-X38-DQ6) has quite a lot of Vdroop, and I could only find solder-mods now. The result above is with 1.4Vcore set in the BIOS, rising FSB with setFSB and changing quite a few of RAM-timings with MemSet. It's still aircooled, with a Zalman 9700NT screwed on the backplate of a Thermalright Ultra 120 eXtreme because of the heatsinks on the back of the mainboard.

3DMark03 with an 8800GTX will follow :)

You will notice that up to 1.6 Volt you can "finetune" vcore? Once going higher the steps to select vcore are getting bigger, and vcore drops are getting lower.

As promised my 3DMark03-result so far:
46452 3DMarks, using an air-cooled, unmodded 8800GTX and an aircooled QX9650 @ 4GHz:

Later I had a slightly better score: 46571 marks, but I didn't make a screenshot of it, there's only the ORB-link: http://service.futuremark.com/compare?2k3=5833777.

I also improved my SuperPi 1M-score: With the QX9650 at 4.2GHz, I could squeeze out a time of 11.046s:

I hope to improve these results tonight, when it gets a bit colder again :rolleyes:

But 1.6V is quite a lot for a 45nm-part... The highest I used up to now is 1.475V, but if the CPU stays cool enough, I'll rise the Vcore offcourse.

48C in my veranda ;)

45nm wil have no problem swallowing 1.65V on air. I can even say that at certain speeds cpu temp wil be lower due the more juice you give it.

I'm now around 4.4GHz @ 1.55V ;)
