I've more submissions blocked due to this prehistorical constraint of windows 8/10 limitation with MB that can change their bclk...what a waste of time

At least it will save me time to play instead of benchmarking

Yeah, there is a Windows 10 bug with timing that can allow people to spoof benchmark scores.

It's not a matter of people necessarily reporting you, it's a matter of their team purging some Windows 10 submissions until the bug is fixed by MS to ensure that all submissions are valid.

well, I was aware of these bugs...but as far as I know sleep bug was corrected.

anyway I won't spend much time on benchmark as everything is almost forbidden...it's a pity as I received my new gpu..:D

Gonna have to wait a bit on adding anything more, my motherboard was pulled from an HP Pavilion and wasn't recognized by HW Bot :/

haha, no way! A little friendly competition can be a lot of fun.

I should have a new rig to bench shortly and I believe that it's similarly specced to yours so it should help to ensure that both of our rigs are decently optimized.

haha, me too.

It's actually a gift for my wife but I'm going to abuse it before gifting it to her so she legitimately thinks that it's my new computer.

Well, well, another 8 scores blocked due this stupid windows 10 blockade...I'll finish by hate this hwbot.org...they can stay with their stupid windows 7 and windows XP...hoping there is more wannacry to crush their obsolete os...

By the way...windows 10 is using HPET...that is consuming more ressources than on windows 7 and previous...so, so frustrating!!!!

Nice job on that 1st place. Those are always nice ones to find and own.

Does anyone else ever get that feeling when you're decently proud of a benchmark score only for the HWBot results to show that you're nearly at the bottom of all who have submitted scores with that same hardware.

I must be missing some sort of optimization or something... or perhaps I just need to overclock more.
