P4 550 ([email protected]) 266mhz cpu bus 1066mhz memory bus default voltage 1.375v
Cooling ==> Thermaltake Silentower with stock 92mm 2500rpm fan 52cfm.
2gB Kingston hyperx2 ddr2 pc670
Superpie 1M ==> 32seconds
2 instances of Superpie ==> 43 seconds.
Btw Next weekend I'll find the max fsb and overclock I can reach and see if I can break the 29sec barrier.
PS I would like to see how an AMD64 fares while running 2 instances of Superpie.
Managed to squeeze a little more performance out of mine by redlining all the voltages, cranking the fans to full & taking out the stops! Got my little P2.4C up to 3.31GHz, and my fsb to 278MHZ, boo-yah! Actually, it surprised me how little head-room I really have on this rig, but then again, I DID push her as far as I possibly could
Edit: ROFL!! I was wondering how the hell you managed to get a PIII to run superpi in 48 seconds, Paul, until I realized it was 4 minutes and 48 seconds, hehehe...
Clock that is 100% stable and does not get through the test, only to lockup the second after you get the SS of the results saved
No fresh loading of the OS or shutting down stuff that is running in the background
That is what I call "not rigging for better performance/results". Oh and I just shaved off another second (down to 42s) while remaining 100% stable and not rigging my system for better performance/results (see SS)
