Post your specs and your benchmarks

Hey

I thought it could be fun to see how well peoples systems actually performs in various tests. The purpose of this thread is not to rate systems, but to get a better understanding of the differences in performance. This will give an idea of price/performance ratios in various price ranges and perhaps even help some users when deciding how much to spend on a build.
Especially OC benchmarks can help people realize how much the performance of specific parts can be improved.

If people have suggestions please send me a PM to keep the thread clean. If I get good suggestions I will update OP and include them (if the thread has any activity).

As of now the format is as follows;

SPECS:

CPU: Intel Core i5 2500 3.33GHz 6MB Box S1155

MOBO: Asus P8H61-M LE/USB3 Intel H61 mATX DDR3 S1155

RAM: Kingston HyperX RAM DDR3 8GB 1333MHz kit CL9

GPU: MSI Radeon PCI-E HD7850 OC 2GB DDR5 TWIN FROZR III (900/1200)

SSD: -

HDD: WD Caviar Blue WD5000AAKX 500GB SATA6 16MB 7200 RPM

ODD: Samsung SH-222BB DVDRW SATA 22x black

PSU: Corsair TX650M 80+ Bronze certified, semi-modular

BENCHMARKS (SCREENSHOTS OF PERFORMED TESTS):

(screenshots are required to avoid fraudulent posts)

Passmark: http://i49.tinypic.com/jt6sz7.jpg
(the "newbaseline" is lower because it was performed with various monitoring programs running)

Furmark (Benchmark preset: 1080): http://i48.tinypic.com/oholt4.jpg

Et cetera.

- Will post more benchmarks later.

Temperatures probably won't be very helpful as these are depending on multiple factors (room temperature, case, fans etc.)

Benchmarks could also include links to gameplay videos (preferably with FPS counter).

LINKS TO SOFTWARE:

Passmark; http://www.passmark.com/download/pt_download.htm

Furmark; http://www.ozone3d.net/benchmarks/fur/

OCCT; http://downloads.guru3d.com/OCCT-%28...load-1880.html

Futuremark; http://www.futuremark.com/benchmarks/

Cinebench; http://www.maxon.net/downloads/cinebench.html

Heaven; http://unigine.com/products/heaven/

- Does anyone like the idea?

EDIT: Heaven added.

This seems like a good idea. Can I post haeven benches?

Both of those just lists specs, it really doens't tell anything about performance and how different systems compare in standardized test.
The first link is just a database and the second is based on subjective ratings. This thread is dedicated to objective stats that can inform about performance.

I searched before posting and didn't find anything similar to my post.

Point being, claims about performance are only meaningful for a short while. Someone with a bigger e-peen will come along eventually.

If you have a nice system, just enjoy it for what it is.

I would appreciate if you could update the quote so my edit is included.

I must admit that I didn't find that thread.

Not sure I understand the e-peen remark. This thread has no ratings and benchmarks are presented as screenshots. This is not a bragging thread. This is more about avoiding to buy an over- or underpowered system and finding the sweetspot. Also this can be used to find the best price/performance parts.

EDIT: This is definitely not about my e-peen, a lot of users here have GPU setups that costs the same as my entire system.

As there is already a thread for benchmarks I can see this getting closed....
Sorry to say I tried a similar post your water cooling setup pictures just to have it moved to the water cooling thread..

I'd ask rot'n if he would allow u to take over the old benchmark thread, and update it with some new benchmarks but you would need to copy all the previous bench mark results to keep in spirit f the original..

I did it with the steam members computer DB witch I need to update btw I been a lil slack..
