Default Its time to overhaul XTU.....

The pink elephant in the room needs to be addressed. (Even if 99% of the people dont even know what it is)

There are some nefarious tweaks in XTU that make it unfair to the layman bencher.

Here is a 4770k on air for example. 10ghz why not?




Same can be easily achieved on x99.




And here is a step by step way to do it.

1. Download process lasso
2. Open
3. Disable Pro balance garbage File->Pro Balance
4. Next you are going to go to default process priorities
5. Type in p95-bench.exe and select realtime from the drop down and add to list
6. Loop XTU till you get a WR.

You'll notice that the rotation above the XTU process bar will be glitchy fast then slow etc that's how you know its working. Also the Mhz will be super high but you can make them look more normal by under clocking or even using slow mode to get a nice round ln2 able figure.

Better yet you dont need a screen shot so who cares if it says 10 GHZ, your validation file will work just fine.

I can confirm working on z77/z87-z97/x79/x99 in my short testing of this "tweak"


The ones that use this dont even feel shame for they arent doing anything that is classified as a hack, they arent touching files, they arent changing files, they arent even tricking the timer etc. And I wouldnt classify it as a bug as its reproducible easily.


So I think XTU needs an overhaul....maybe now that some smart people know this tweak, they can figure out what causes this to work and help it to be closed. But if you were to ask me I feel all XTU results should loose points for now and if and when its fixed, start fresh with the newest version and require Screenshots as well.

It was time to adress issues on XTU, but this will now bring on some fun

It would be helpful if you can send pm perhaps to christian ney to confirm if new XTU versions are hit by this still
