  • 2500k 10,000+ OC Club

    I Managed a 10483 Yesterday, (according to the Advanced search using search field: i5/CPU/Descending it is a fairly high score)....Also I ran IBT on maximum single pass to confirm system stability although temps did hit 90oC core while doing so
    Going to try for top spot this weekend, would love to break the 11,000 barrier - without breaking anything else though

    Anyway is anyone else in the club? ........

    I did it, I am now in the 11,000+ Club

    I do believe I have just achieved the highest CPU rating score for an i5 2500k of 11,022, maybe admin can confirm/deny this for me, or advise on the best way to use the advanced search to find out if I am wrong?

      Top 5 CPUMark results for the 2500K CPU at the moment are,

      1st line = File name
      2nd line = Date, Baseline number, CPUMark, Base clock speed, Turbo clock speed.

      I assume your result is the "Asus NarkyMark" one. So yes, the highest 2500K at the moment.

        .....Now what made you think that was me

        Thanks for confirming!

        I have just realised that I am currently 2nd in the highest overall i5 Pass Mark rating too, but TBH I am a little confused as to why I have not made number one spot there also?

        There is no way a Corsair GT SSD is capable of that rediculously high Disk Mark score 37,000+ ? Maybe you can check it out for me? I'm presumming the person in 3rd is the same peron as he also has the same SSD with the same overly high Disk Mark score?

          Might be using a RAM drive. What was the baseline number?

              Yes, it looks like a RAM drive. If you look at his / her's system information you can see they also have a small 7GB exFAT drive (Volume L:\), in addition to the Corsair SSD.

              See also,

                .....So after 12 years of using this software, I finally find the secret of high Pass Mark ratings

                I'll try out your software later then, obviously I will be lower in other areas as a result, but should easily gain 1st place using a Ram Disk....I'll post back again with my outcome!

                Thanks for your time!

                  RAM drives aren't much of a secret. They have been around since the late 70's. So that's about 30 years now.

                  Microsoft added a RAM disk function to MS-DOS V2.0 in 1983. Lookup RAMDRIVE.SYS on Google.

                    .......Yes I know they have been around a while but I have never bothered as they seem a bit of a cheap benchmark boost IMO compared to true OC to the limits, Maybe you could implement a non Ram Drive usage search facility, maybe set a Disk Mark limit threshold of say 5,000 (obviously according to current technology this can be adjusted to be more exact) Maybe put a tick box next to descending or add "Disk (Non Ram Drive)" in the drop down?

                      It is hard to detect a RAM drive with any certainty. They look like a (fast & small) but otherwise normal looking hard drive to the operating system.

                      They don't support 'SMART', but neither do many other real hard drives.

                      Can't easily set a speed limit as the high end SSDs are getting close to low end RAM drive speeds. Especially the PCI-E based SSDs.


                      • #12
                        .....Fair do's, yes I realised just how hard it would be to detect after I had posted my suggestion, IE: a Newer PCIe IODrive or highend SSD v a PC100 (or the likes) Ram Drive....

                        Anyway I have to say I was really impressed with your Ram Drive utility I have now just slaughtered the highest Disk Mark score 73,000+ and the highest i5 Pass Mark result also, plenty of room to spare too as I only did a mild RAM OC and lowered the xMulti' by 1, the rest was made up by the Ram Disk

                          There is no reason that 10 years from now all hard drives will be solid state & as as fast pure RAM drives. The distinction between a hard drive storage and RAM should disappear in future computers.

                            .....Very true, I was looking at a fusion drive, until I saw the cost , but it's like anything non mainstream the cost is always hgh at first, I remember paying over 200GBP for a 1x CD Writer, now 52x drives are ten a penny!
