With CPUz being free, the link for the validation being free, the validation taking less than a couple seconds to do, why wouldn't you do it
If I don't see some sort of validation, I ignore the damned post. It's worthless bullshit if it isn't validated and this thread isn't titled:
"Tell us what your CPU speed is!"
"CPU speed brag time!"
The standards for this thread were set out early on. Not only that, but when talking about any overclocking bragging, it's the norm to provide valid proof of your overclock. It's the exception that allows people to post speeds without verification. The reason behind that is to keep good natured competition honest and the little brats from posting stupid shit.
You ain't nothin. I got me a E8400 at 8.2GHz on a 650i.
Anyone can make that claim. But there aren't any who can back it up with good, solid proof.
So I'll ask one time. Why WOULDN'T you provide a CPUz link to remove all question of your claims?
IMHO, in a sticky thread at MaximumPC's Overclocking section, all these bullshit posts (including this one of mine) should be removed and "validated only" posts should remain.
Posts like this:
I rather stick with my default clock speeds. Longer life span is what I like.
Are worthless and irritate the living piss out of me when I'm going through, looking to see what others are getting on like systems.
BTW, thought I would do the validation myself for my Q6600 @ 3.2GHz
on my 780i mobo.
