    Default MadOnion's New PCMark2002

    Has anybody tried this system benchmark yet? I didn't restart or do anything of the proper benchmarking procedures, but I wound up with a CPU score of 4560, a memory score of 3132, and an HDD score of 497. Haven't been able to connect to their site yet to compare.

    Yeah, probably about that time for me as well. I almost have all of my programs installed! Time to wipe it clean!

    Heh, at first I was amazed at how a format boosted your memory scrore by so much, but replacing the modules explains it. Nice scores there. I'll have to tweak around a little bit to see how much more I can boost mine.

    Well, I must say that I am still having problems over here... I think that one of the memory pipelines on my motherboard has gone kaput, so Im in the market for a new dual Athlon mobo...

    So you don't think that those modules were bad in the first place? Wow, I thought that those dual Athlon motherboards were incredibly reliable because they're normally used in server situations.

    Needles to say I'm pissed... It turns out the only way I could get my computer to work is to reformat, then install the mobo drivers, reboot & install the video drivers, then reboot & install the very first release of the SB Live! drivers.. anything after the first will cause the BSoD.

    I am toing to go ahead & get another Thunder K7 ordered & wait for it to arrive before i RMA this one... Then I will have a Dual 1.2ghz & a Dual (1.53ghz) 1800+ machine... Woo hoo...

    There should be rules against that many high-performance CPUs in one place
