It's time for a little friendly competition!



HWBOT is a 100% FREE to use online benchmarking repository.
The rules are simple:
1. Create an account.
2. Join the team.
3. Run benchmarks.
4. Submit your results.

Link to the team: http://hwbot.org/team/smallformfactor.net/#Members

Why should I run benchmarks?
- Your contribution(s) earn points for the smallformfactor.net team.
- It starts some friendly competition with other members of the Small Form Factor community.
- Competition helps to optimize builds and eek out performance that would otherwise go unnoticed.
- Teammates help each other by finding ways to improve their scores.
- The more points our team earns, the higher we rank among other teams worldwide.

As a lot of our builds share similar hardware inside various SFF chassis, this helps to ensure that our hardware is running at its best.

What is HWBot?
It's a website were you can browse processor and videocard specifications, and compare your performance based on thousands of submitted results. It's also an overclocking competition site. If you like tweaking your computer, you can send in your results and be handed out awards for best performing videocard / processor, etc.
- HWBOT is the official website for benchmarking/ overclocking enthusiasts.
- It's been around since 2006 as the gold standard in benchmark result submissions.
- Every record that has even been, was submitted to HWBOT for accuracy and validation.

How do I join the Smallformfactor.net team?
Step 1. Visit the website hwbot.org/

Step 2. Select the option to register


Step 3. Enter your username at it appears on the Small Form Factor Forums.


Step 4. Select the team.


Step 5. Complete your registration


Now what?
Run benchmarks and submit your scores to help the team.
You can benchmark your CPU, GPU, RAM, and HDD.

3DMark submissions will require a 3DMark account, you can make one here: http://www.3dmark.com/login

Well i also tried intel xtu on my ryzen setup and it didn't install also..
Im going to be putting some more time into this tomorrow w/ the goal of submitting a fat cinebench run. Waiting for Amazon to approve a service limit increase before i can go further though.

Good thing I tried this on a free tier first. So much for smashing out a 64 core run on an EC2 instance, Intel XTU wouldnt install :(
Click for big


EDIT: Thwarted by HWbot again :\
Lol! That's genius. Smash a few records with the cloud... don't stop at 64 cores :)

Fresh install of Windows 10.
Stock everything: Default ram speed of 2133MHz, GPU is running at SC2 clocks.
I haven't even entered the BIOS once.

The first thing I wanted to do was establish a baseline.
Cinebench R15 - 2374


Don't fret though, this is non-competitive in performance per liter.
If that take that score and divide it by the number of liters this case is consuming, this is what I come up with: 57.11
...just wait until I get my grubby mitts on a Cerberus-X :)

Wouah..cinebench scores from threadripper is so impressive..:)

Do you have a dedicated thread to your build?

At least AMD has very good (if not best) cpu line up right now..:)
In contrary on its gpu....poor vega...

Yea, 180w is how AMD has it listed.
The highest system draw I have seen so far was 540 watts during a Ashes of the Singularity benchmark run.

It's being kept cool with an NZXT Kraken x62 (Asetek-based) with Prolimatech Pk-3 TIM. The 2x140mm fans are the stock NZXT fans which are damn near silent with the motherboard set to "Standard fan profile" (This rig is already 10x quieter than my previous rig, haha). I chose the x62 over a custom loop as EKWB said that their concept fullcover block made little to no difference in temperature on the TR processors so I figured the smaller footprint of the Asetek coolers would be fine- and it is!

I currently have the 1920x overclocked to 4.0GHz on all 12 cores (Core Voltage upped from 1.28v to 1.35v) while I run stability tests on it. Eventually I am going to try and push for 4.1Ghz or 4.2GHz 24/7 stable. So far it's been rock solid at 4.0GHz.

I set all 4 sticks of DDR4 to 3200MHz and tightened the timings down to CL14 from CL16. I'll try dropping the tRC down to 48 later.
So far the process has been incredibly painless, I'm very pleased with its performance.


2656 is the highest Cinebench r15 run.
10,337 is the highest Time Spy score.

I'll be sure to submit a few of these early benchmarks to help the team.

Just catching up on the thread all.
The TR system is Beast @3lfk1ng !

The binning on those is no joke as you are hitting 4.0 on really nice volts for 12 cores. Love to see that the cream of the crop silicon is being used for TR. AMD delivering a premium product at the high end. How bout some solder at least Intel!!? ;)

Haha, thanks!
Not too shabby yourself, congrats on 4.1. The 1700 is the deal of the century as far as I am concerned.

The TR even hit 4.1GHz (all-cores) out of the box but I run it at 4.0GHz to keep voltage under AMD's recommendation of no more than 1.35v.
I haven't tried for 4.2GHz yet but I doubt I will find stability at voltages that I am comfortable with on this 280mm AIO cooler (Kraken x62). The temps are incredible though, idles at 38c, games at 65c, max temp under stress+Furmark 83c

Be careful about t° of ryzen cpu..do not exceed 70°c on t° die, that's the threshold where lifespan of ryzen pu is harmed..:)

Thanks!
I'm loving the x370 Taichi so far.
I can't do much but surf and barely pass CPUz validation at 4.1. But To get that screen cap felt pretty great!

1.4 v in bios with a +.0186 ish ? offset and LLC maxed. To achieve.

Daily I set the 0 P state to 3700 and just the same offset and it is all day stable drawing 1.2v including the offset at LLC3 which is middle of the road on the Taichi.

I want to find the ceiling at a safe 1.35v ,as you mentioned, for my Chip and call it a day now that I have better cooling.

Lucky ones...my r7 1700x is stable at 4.0ghz with vcore of 1.525v...hopefully my cpu cooling is great...and i'm planning to switch to zen 2..:)

Edit : i validated 4.125ghz under cpu z...but it's far to be stable...Intel burn test is a very good indicator of stability..:)
