Neither do I. I really only did them out of courtesy to the people on the forum. Up until 3 months ago, I never ran one. I figure if it does what I want, at the level I want, it works for me.
I guess it could come in handy if you think you are having some problems to determine if something has drastically changed. Other than that, I ran them the first day I had the computer, and will hopefully never have to do so again. They were deleted off my laptop the following day. I also never plan to OC anything on my computer as long as I can continue to run everything.
That was the main reason I didn't respond when El Franco started spamming every benchmark thread. I figured I didn't want to get in a pissin' match about something I really know nothing about, and up until a few months ago, didn't care much about. I'll leave that to guys that know something about benchmarking.
I do still smell the smoke coming over the forum
