Once you register, login at the top, and entering your username/password in the fields that appear there. If your login doesn't work properly, you will see the "register/login" buttons again at the top - it unfortunately does not give an error messaage yet. Once it logs in correctly, you will see a message at the top indicating you are logged in. Then the first thing to do is create a new system, go to My Systems, add your system data and click Submit at the bottom. Finally, go to Benchmarks and Scenes and find the TG2 benchmark at the bottom, use Download Scene link below the benchmark example image, run the benchmark, and then while still logged-in use the Edit My Benchmarks area on the TG2 scene file page under the "Select from the lists below to filter benchmarks." section on the right, enter your benchmark information and press Save Benchmark.

Thanks Oshyan.  I was blind in one eye and couldn't see out of the other.  I have submitted my benchmark - 20m46s.
So this is Disney World.  Can we live here?

interesting to see that, at the moment, the 4 top results are using vista 64bits. tomorrow i'll test under 8 core macOS, at work.

I guess.  That really doesn't show anything about Vista...yet.  Let's see a Windows XP 64-bit with these specs run it, but with a faster processor than Q6600 - Intel Core 2 Quad and 4G of RAM.  Or with 8G of RAM.  Right now the top 4 have faster than a Q6600 processor.

Maybe tomorrow I'll overclock mine just for the hell of it and see what I can get. I've seen the E8400 clocked to 3.8 to 4.o Ghz.  NTune makes it rather easy.  If you don't see me for awhile you can guess what happened? LOL

I have a Q6600 @ 2.4 GHz and 8 GB RAM and it took 20 minutes.

Added results for my Core 2 Quad with 8GB of RAM on Vista x64. Looks like Vista doesn't provide any benefit. ;D

Just ran another render after bumping my cpu up to 3.5 Ghz.  18min 6sec.... Saved a little time, core temps got up to 46c, of course no problem with memory. See the screen shot with the NVIDIA Monitors and finished scene.  Not sure yet how my machine will run with a larger more demanding scene though. Certainly wouldn't render overnight with this OC without closely watching the temps.

Hey Oshyan, Should I post this time on the site? Or is it setup for overclocked cpu's.

Nice result Buzzzzz. If you want to enter that into the site you'd make a separate system entry for the machine overclocked. Everything would be the same except the CPU frequency would be different. When you select your CPU it will fill in the speed automatically based on the default clock, but you should be able to override that. In the future we'll have better support for overclocking of a single machine, to make the results more easily and directly comparable.

OK, thanks Oshyan, I'll see if I can enter it with the OC.  Cool site BTW!

So 4 more GB of RAM shaves 46 seconds...it seems.  Right?

It's not likely that more RAM (above 4GB especially) would have any significant effect. There are many other factors which may be involved, which is why it's always good to have as many benchmark results as possible.

Maybe the fact I was doing other things at the same time...

nice site, added my results, would be nice if as many as possible added theirs since im considering upgrading cpu  ;)
