hmm, interesting idea.
just a couple of thoughts here.
While I applaud all those with OCDB entries I don't think they should be automatically included. My reasoning on this. Old benchmarks
Everyone should need to use the latest benchmarks.
Latest Everest Ultimate 2.80 (Even if it's the trial version) www.lavalys.com
Latest CPU-Z 1.34-1 (must be validated) www.cpuid.com
Latest SP2004 (Beta) at http://sp2004.fre3.com/download.htm
It's virtually impossible to cheat on and it should be run with a priority of 9.
I just don't believe you are actually priming if you are working on the computer at the same time.
I also believe that Prime 95 ver 2.38 is much easier that ver 2.414.
I'd also like to see the new A64 Info program used instead of A64 tweaker as it gives more information
And of course NO Aquamark requirements.
If we are running Futuremark 01-03-05 why not include 06.
Gives all the dual core owners a chance to show off their higher scores to us single core users.
Still not sure what is so "magic" about the "8 hour" Priming number.
I mean why not 4, or 6, or 12 or hell 24 hours!
If it's gonna be a "special" club, make it hard. Real Hard.
With Opty's the number of people hitting 3G has increased like 100 fold.
That's why I bought mine I know, to hit 3G.
I'm not trying to rain on anyone's parade.
but if it isn't harder, everyone should just get off their asses and post in the OCDB like "Happy" has been begging for ages.
Wheh he gets enough posts in there (as it currently exists with same requirements), I am sure "Happy" will decide on a logo for it.
(It's not like he hasn't been asking those with Photoshop skills for ideas for a hell of a long time.)
Want a "special" club? Then show me what is so special about the club.
Otherwize just complete the OCDB and await the logo.
