5x5x5 Cube: Blindfolded
17 minutes 51.56 secondsVille SeppänenFinally sub8. My accuracy is still bad, I've had many DNFs faster than this. And still using Eastsheen 5x5.20090507
214 minutes 10 secondsRowe Hesslerthis 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! :D20080310

725 minutes 47 secondsMarcus StuhrMemorization 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

1237 minutes 28.64 secondsJosh BergYAY!! 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

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.
