Forgot 3dmark01 and Aquamark.

llwyd 27-05-06 08:29 PM

forgot aquamark, cheers. have left 01 off intentionally as i dont really think 01 scores are relevant anymore. tbh i thought 03 was pushing it. i only use 03 for a laugh now.

01 added. just for nol ;) and now apparently kempez lol

NoL 27-05-06 08:32 PM

Actually 3dmark01 is still quite relevent.

01 is heavily cpu

03 is medium cpu, more gpu

05 is heavy cpu and gpu

06 is heavily cpu

Since 06 is general crap IMO, 01 is still quite relevent.

FarFarAway 27-05-06 08:36 PM

Yep 01's a good one to use for more general overall system performance :)

glocktodahead 27-05-06 08:46 PM

Thanks for taking the time to do this :worship:

NoL 27-05-06 09:00 PM

Asus AI Booster as well.

Phnom_Penh 27-05-06 09:05 PM

Add Videolan Client (VLC) and Sygate. Ad-Aware I'd remove, they took bribes from spyware companies or something iirc.

Well, for AMD boards at least, ASUS AI Booster is considered to be one of the most evil things as it can't really do jack and just causes system instability. Dunno bout intel though. I suppose it would do something as ASUS Intel boards are considered some of the best.

FarFarAway 27-05-06 09:21 PM

Ad-Aware is excellent. I don't think your thinking of the right program

llwyd 27-05-06 09:22 PM

@NoL still working on AI Booster, the links i have found are all broken

@phnom ill put a warning with ad-aware although i think youre thinking of another program. added videoLAN. im weary about adding Sygate as its owned by Symantec, the people who royaly screw over pcs with norton. i shall add it anyway as you know your stuff

@glock thanks :)

NoL 27-05-06 09:23 PM

Oh I just realized those are all links

Great job!!!

EDIT: How bout SysTool.

WC Annihilus 27-05-06 09:24 PM

I think those things about Ad-Aware were more like rumors than anything else. I do remember hearing about that stuff though.

And Clockgen. I know normally we suggest only OCing in the BIOS, but I like having Windows testing to make prelim OC testing easier.

O, and rthdribl too

O, add A64Tweaker. Good thing for seeing your mem settings in windows

PV5150 05-06-06 01:50 PM

I do believe that you may be thinking of Spyware Eliminator from Aluria Software Llwyd. I wrote about it in a guide a while back Removing browser hijacks, Virus's and Spyware

Btw Ad-Aware is a great little program.

Nah, Lavasoft also removed WhenU from their database ;).

Homer 26-06-06 02:27 PM

Anyway forget about windows media player plz, its a bs... this soft try to connect to internet when u watch a movie or listen or poor mp3. Prefer windows media player classic or bsplayer for examples.

A little soft called activeports is usefull to survey currently connections to internet.

And kill process software help u to close strange/dangerous process.

Homer.

mrbeef 28-06-06 12:04 AM

Thanks.
