How to post a submission to HWbot

12 Attachments

Recommended Posts

Greetings! I decided to make this guide to help our members along when submitting to the bot. It is a work in progress and if there are any details you think should be added, please let me know. 


I will be using TimeSpy as our example as it was the run that sparked the idea for this guide. 


Finding our benchmark/rules


     1) We head to the benchmarks section of HWbot to locate the benchmark we want to run and to also read the rules/submission guidelines for that bench. It can be found HERE. Note: Not all benchmarking software is freeware. All of the most modern 3D Mark benches require purchase.




     2) When we click the RULES link for TimeSpy we can see it states we MUST use the latest version of TimeSpy & Systeminfo (Download HERE). There is no OS limitation and we will need a screenshot and 3D mark validation link. It requires a CPUz tab for CPU and Memory. It requires a GPUz tab for the GPU. There are NO level of detail adjustments allowed (Default only). The windows taskbar MUST be visible and we can't submit cropped images. 




     3) VERY IMPORTANT - Click the "Compare result online" button, this is your verification link and you will need this to make your submission valid. 




     4) Avoid the link glitch that occurs with the link that ends in a ?. Login to the UL website and click "My results". There you should find the last run you completed at the top. Click "Details", The details link is the link you want to insert in the validation box on HWbot. Keep this tab open. 




Beginning to submit score


     1) After running your benchmark, minimize your benchmark window to allow for room to place all required CPUz/GPUz tabs. I prefer to place the window on the left most portion of my desktop. Feel free to put extras in if you so wish. Such as a CPUz Mainboard tab or the GPUz sensor information window. Once you have all of the required tabs, save your screenshot and proceed to HWbot.




     2) Once on HWbot you will be faced with two options. If you are NOT submitting a result for a tournament or competition, you can click the blue "Submit Score" button at the top right of the screen. If you are submitting for a competition, you will need to navigate to the specific round that you are competing in and submit your score from that page. See below.




     3) If you are submitting for a competition, the website will automatically know which benchmark you are submitting for because you clicked submit from within that specific page. If you are NOT subbing for a competition, you will need to find and select your benchmark from the drop down menu's. See below.





Entering details/attaching proof


Part 1




     1) Sometimes a benchmark will ask for a specific save file from the benchmark. TimeSpy does not. We start by entering our OVERALL score from our run. 14244. Listing the sub tests is usually optional. They can be found within the details of your run on the 3D mark results area. It is very important that your run says "Valid Result" in green. If it does not, you may have a driver conflict or other issue. 




     2) Proceed to enter in all of your hardware. Pay close attention to the cooling solutions. If you accidentally put chilled or other forms of sub-ambient cooling, you will be placed in the apprentice league. Your speeds should mirror what is in CPUz for CPU frequency and GPUz for GPU clock and mem speeds.  Do the same for your DRAM, Motherboard, SSD and PSU. 




Part 2




     1) Click "Choose File" and upload the screenshot we did previously. Copy and paste the link for your "My Results" tab that you should have left open in the "Compare URL".


     2) You may choose to attach a picture of your working system on the four additional "Choose File" tabs. Take note that if your image resolution is too large, you will get an error when trying to submit the result. I tend to resize the image by 50%.


     3) Click the last box agreeing to the rules and click the blue "Submit benchmark result". When done, you should be taken to the page below. Take a moment to verify all your settings and results.
