    @Seven Eleven, I replied to the wrong person, It was meant for shawnj11558. He said it was dumb that a 980x@4.3 couldn't get him 7.9 cpu score.:

    Here is my info. I agree its so dumb i cant hit 7.9 on the cpu when i have i7-980x clocked to 4.3ghz
    I merely pointed out that 4.8ghz doesn't either.

    This is a show your wei score thread, every other post is someone saying not to take it seriously, check my posts I've said it doesn't mean anything either.

    The posts you're talking about have one person saying "it's so dumb" and another saying "4.8ghz doesn't either". I think both are on topic and miles away from "obsessing".

    @darknovagamer: 4.3 lol, this is my 980x at 4.8ghz. It takes ln2/dice/phase or 8 cores to get 7.9.

    how is his graphics score relevant to your cpu score?
    Haha.

    Indeed, its nice to get high scores on it though. Makes us feel all warm and dusty inside (like a computer!)

    That was actually unintentional... But I must admit, afterwards I realised the irony of my suggestion.

    The ole 3 GB/s spinners are killing our systems, the bottleneck that hopefully will be a thing of the past, soon.

    Western Digital Caviar Black WD6402AAEX 640GB 64MB cache 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive ... $79.99
    Should be real nice in RAID.

    Or, SSD boot drives 30/32 GB < $100
    40GB for $115

    If you can wait till the end of the year, when 25nm comes out, hopefully there will be a nice price/GB drop.

    Just an interesting piece of info regarding SATA 3.0 (6 gigabits per second) for anybody that's curious, read more of this at Wikipedia's SATA page:
    While even the fastest conventional hard disk drives can barely saturate the original SATA 1.5 Gbit/s bandwidth, Solid State Disk drives have already saturated the SATA 3 Gbit/s limit at 250 MB/s net read speed.

    Not that is matters to us, just thought this was interesting tid-bit of info.

    The Serial ATA International Organization AKA SATA-IO, is kind of picky about what SATA gets called. In fact we have already broken its rules in the paragraphs above more than once.

    When referring to the specification, use "Serial ATA Revision 3.0 specification" for the first reference. For successive references, this can be shortened to "SATA Revision 3.0." Do not use "SATA 3.0." When referring to transfer rates, the technology can be correctly referred to as "SATA 6Gb/s."
    SATA 3 SSDs have just came out, and need some time before they can be viable.
    Not yet able to show the potential of SATA 3 (ah..SATA 6GB/s).

    Ah, yes of course.. I wasn't thinking properly, I do know about the naming protocols used, I just keep forgetting to actually stick to them.

    Then again, this whole naming thing can be just as confusing to some people as GB vs Gb.. And that's not even getting into the differences between a gigabyte and a gibibyte... I really hate computers sometimes. Lol.
