Updated SuperPI 32M 5G Challenge Thread: Splave King of The Hill, ASRock Powers 22 out of Top-30 Scores

For the memory tweakers and SuperPI enthusiasts we have a special thread in our Haswell overclocking subforum listing the most efficient SuperPI 32M results submitted to HWBOT. The frequency is limited to 5003 MHz. At the top of the ranking we find Splave from the USA, followed suit by Angoholic from Germany and Bullant from Australia. Splave's top score is currently 5 minutes 54.578 seconds with G.SKILL memory kit running DDR3-2820 CL6-10-6.

Based on the top-100 list we also compiled some data and we found out that ASRock is used for 22 of the 30 best SuperPI 32M 5G submissions! In fact, 9 of the top-10 results are done using an ASRock Z87 or Z97 motherboard. Overall in the top-100 we find plenty of ASUS boards too, with the Maximus VI Extreme as the most used board.

You can find the Haswell SuperPI 32M 5G Challenge here. Below you can find the current top 10 scores and four charts which you may find interesting.

1,5 sec between #1 and #10 ... almost like the 100m sprint

Bulgaria I.nfraR.ed says:

Ok, but shouldn't be a user represented with his best score only?

United States Splave says:

Thanks for the recognition of hard work!

I've been thinking about that lately.

A user is only getting points for his best submission, but does that mean only the best results should be shown? Showing all results of a user, also those that don't receive points, would give you more targets no?

Australia Bullant says:

Yes I also think it be good just to have best time up for 32M 5Ghz,when I start updating my time on Z97 ill have more times so be nice to see just best time otherwise we may see a lot of Bullant lol

Showing all results is okay, but from a certain point there's no sense anymore if a user has e.g. 10 scores with the same setup within 1-2 sec interval. Moreover, when talking about rankings, you can't be on more than 1 position at the same time. It would be good to show results of the same user, but with different type of ram, however such info is not provided in the general case. So I would say - it's ok to have a general query to the database, but when talking about rankings, it really should be 1 result per user.

United States steponz says:

Any thoughts to doing a points system for these 5ghz submissions. There should be more payoff for this and I think alot of people pass this up.. I would submit more for these if there were points.

Australia Bullant says:

Oh btw Splave very nice job on your time man,you have left a nice benchmark,ill try to push you and im sure the other guys will try too,I know you really like to battle as this is how we all improve,great job

You would get far too many people cheating, i.e. running at a higher freq and then lowering for a validation screenshot, so it just wouldn't be a viable option.

It will be hard to cheat because most peep that run 5G (with limitation -/+ 2Mhz) 32m knows every cpu/ ram type/mhz/timings/wazza combinations related to min/sec on almost every loop passed

Romania Alex@ro says:

Agreed

Belgium Massman says:

The problem is that there will never be 100% solid proof. Such ranking would only work if we'd agree that all 5G runs need to be validated by a moderator before they get points.

Agreed, or a video of the run from when pi starts and finishes, with cpuz opening at the end to verify actual speed. But really most people that bench enough pi all ready know what is capable and what is not with each ic at 4Ghz/5Ghz.

Romania Alex@ro says:

Have someone moderate that,maybe splave or other addict :)

United States Splave says:

Maybe have to prove mei is not installed haha

So much this, in fact it's the only way to be sure no shadiness is occurring. Easy way to do this open the Timing Configurator and look at the memory speed in the corner. If it lists an exact mhz (i.e. 2722) rather than the the divider (i.e. 2666) then you know mei is installed.

United States steponz says:

Why not make an hwbot wrapper of some sorts...

Australia JJJC says:

Noooooo! Keep the wrapper demons away from our precious 32m! No need to apply points to this and over complicate this I don't feel, right now the people benching low clock 32m do so because they really want to, not because there are points. Add points and it may be seen as a quick and easy way to some hwbot points, which may motivate the cheater in some..

Not for superpi please.

This^,couldn't of said it better myself

Low clock challenge is not only about being the number one effieincy guy but also a place to improve your skills with memory effiency.These skills include setting OS,dialling in bios,tweaking complete bios and OS that in turn helps you in all types of benches

Low clock has been working well on XS for some time now

I have nothing installed at all and my memory configurator reads correct 2736mhz and memory configurator will read the same 2736 ,I believe you are using a old version of memory configurator that Nick has updated and the new version of memory configurator now reads correct,like the one I'm using I believe

Edit,seems you are using same version,I would like to know why mine shows blk and not yours as I have no mei installed,I notice one of splaves results shows blk in memory config also Hiwa run does so maybe something els

I would like to know how to install me so I can change blk within windows

Taiwan NickShih says:

Cpuz read the memory speed by "calcualtion" . timing configurator 2.0.7 reads from Mei. If mei is not installed . Bclk will be read as 100.0 Mhz only . timing configurator 2.0.8 will check if MEI installed or not . If not , it will calculate the bclk frequency by cpu speed . http://picx.xfastest.com/nickshih/asrock/AsrTCSetup(v2.0.8).rar

Australia Bullant says:

Nick has informed me that my version of memory config 2.0.7 is really version 2.0.8 version that he passed to me early on with out updating the name, this is why my 2.0.7 shows blck

Thanks for clearing that up Nick I was confused lol
