Re: New benchmarks for th 8350 and 3570k/3770k. Weird results.

Ether that or swapped out the cpu and mobo, possibly ram too. Ether way, just why would one do that?

He's cutting corners, I guess.

I could see pulling out the GPU, as that would make no difference, but he shouldn't be moving the SSD between systems--I'm surprised the OS install even worked and didn't detect new hardware and shut down and ask for a new license key.

If he is going to cut corners, he has no business making claims or publishing benchmarks. The goal is in testing is to remove as many variables as possible. That usually means a fully-functioning, fully-patched system running the latest stable version of drivers.

Shifting hardware around like that only increases the entropy he's introducing into his systems.

If he wasn't using a legit copy of windows 7 it may not have asked him for new key.

That's speculation at this point. I'll just mark these results as "suspect" and move along.

I'm not trying to say he was, I'm just saying that some cracked copies don't ask.
