You guys need to get these rules sorted. I'm about to flag about a 100 subs because Leeghoof decided to remove mine. Benchmate is not allowed, can't even manually run w/benchmate. It makes zero sense to bench in W7 anymore.

If you've read the discussions on this forum you'd know that w10 isn't allowed because it can be timer skewed on non *lake cpus. Win7 can't be timer skewed the same way, although it's not even secure. Geekbench will likely lose all points soon as it's not a secure bench and the dev refuses to allow it to be secured thus no guarentee that any score is legit.

Not with latest benchmate, and afaik the download for older benchmate has or will be taken down.
