|5x5x5 Cube: Blindfolded|
|1||7 minutes 51.56 seconds||Ville Seppänen||Finally sub8. My accuracy is still bad, I've had many DNFs faster than this. And still using Eastsheen 5x5.||20090507|
|2||14 minutes 10 seconds||Rowe Hessler||this is a normal solve for me. i have to work on consistency before i go this fast in compeitiotn. i will get there though thanks to mondo! thank you for the amazing cube! :D||20080310|

I really want a official record.
|4||14 minutes 53.64 seconds||Mike Hughey||Memorization time: 7:36.|
For an online competition. I still can't believe I got a time like this!
|5||16 minutes 33 seconds||Alex Cook||Yeah, nice! Non lucky, memo was around 8:30.||20080723|
|6||20 minutes 54.10 seconds||Mátyás Kuti||Huhh. My second successful solve. Memorization in 8 minutes.||20070213|
|7||25 minutes 47 seconds||Marcus Stuhr||Memorization is key. If you can memorize the cube in terms of efficient cycles and setups using as many methods as possible (I currently use about 10-12 memory methods), you can then execute moves without thinking about how to do something. Rather, you only need to know WHAT to do (it is similar in concept to solving a 3x3x3 speedcube. You don't have to think, just execute) -- you essentially memorize a map of the layout which instructs you on what to do during the move-execution session. Centers still pose a memory problem (and it's the hardest for me to memorize for some reason), but I hope to improve in that area.||20051207|

|12||37 minutes 28.64 seconds||Josh Berg||YAY!! first attempt at a 5x5 and got it on the first try. I was way overcautious and didnt have a set memo, so this is going to be easily beaten next time. around 4 centers solved and nothing else.||20080626|

It's the first scramble of 2009-01 on speedsolving.com
memorization about 26 minutes.

I messed up twice near the start but I realized both times and was able to correct.

I guess it should be told that, to save a lot of time, I used the same scramble multiple times. This was the third try with the same scramble, the fourth counting all. Although this is not competition like circumstances I don't see that you benefit from trying the same scramble several times in any other way than that you save memorization time. Memorization time was 1:20, execution 50:27.
