Great contest. Good result too. Thanks to our very giving sponsors and to HH for putting it all together for us.

Now I have to bow out for the night. Much Tornado activity is likely tonight they say.   See it here. Then, animate the storms in the Super Radar. Yikes!!

I'm in ZIP code 22851 so I should shut the house current down to save the electronics from the Lightening strikes.

Goodnight folks!

I have a 'Wiener Dog' named Milo. He gives everybody hell for coming around the house. He can smell the 'suggestion' of food at three miles away. He's a good watch dog.

how about sharing some of the 'shake and bake ' tests,benches, and burn in stuff included in the binder Drake.? That might be pretty interesting since it was mentioned previously that Maingear 'shakes & bakes' them a heck of a lot harder than most ever will before they get out 'da door.

From what I recall there is just a bench score in that box on the test sheet in the packet, I dont remember reading much about the testing other than it was completed. I'll look when i get home share with you guys for sure though, I was excited and skimmed that section of the manual.

Which benches do you want me to run? pcmark 7? cinebench? I wish autodesk had it's own testing platform, maya 2012 takes advantage of nvidia gpu's so it would be cool to see how much faster it renders than previous versions.

Now you're just mashing it!

Yes, it is, but now, how about some benchmarks Drake?

how about sharing some of the 'shake and bake ' tests,benches, and burn in stuff included in the binder Drake.? That might be pretty interesting since it was mentioned previously that Maingear 'shakes & bakes' them a heck of a lot harder than most ever will before they get out 'da door.

From what I recall there is just a bench score in that box on the test sheet in the packet, I dont remember reading much about the testing other than it was completed. I'll look when i get home share with you guys for sure though, I was excited and skimmed that section of the manual.

Which benches do you want me to run? pcmark 7? cinebench? I wish autodesk had it's own testing platform, maya 2012 takes advantage of nvidia gpu's so it would be cool to see how much faster it renders than previous versions.

Now you're just mashing it!

ooppps sorry Drake about getting back to this one a bit late ...anyhow remembered Marco mentioning something about running the same series of benches with graphic cards in the reviews  Unigine Heaven, 3D Mark etc Lost Planet2  >.whatever you feel comfortable with or have available

would be interesting to see the rigs flex it;'s muscle  as well as temps
