    so what do you think w1z and urlyin have said some stuff about it w1z thinks its a good idea and urlyin said to make this thread so HERE YOU GO.

    what do you think TPU? what should we giveaway and how should it be givenaway?


    i was thinking a raffle like system based off the number of entries you make to HWBOT would work but this may become unfair as ppl may have more systems thatn others so what do you think suggestions would be nice.

    Here's a easy way to do it CD ... lets just say to enter you must have a HWbot entry using the TPU as the site ... post your info or your hwbot bench format( forgot the format ) ... to enter and we'll draw the post number like the Mushkin PSU giveaway ..


    I have some Ultra Products to giveaway as well as a Xigmatek cooler

    Click the sig :)

    It's a database of benchmarks. You get awarded points based on performance against the same spec'd hardware. You should join, help TPU :toast:

    sounds like a good idea! I think there should be a minimum total points though to qualify...at least 5
    and how the heck do you get those sigs with your stats? I want one :)

    Nice go crazy, I need to get my hands on my grandparents P3 @ 600 mhz. I can push it up to like 120 some...giving me 700-800 mhz I forget how much. The only problem was I couldn't unlink the processor from the ram, and their ram is only rated for 100 mhz. Otherwise a bump to 133 would be pretty easy. I also got a old socket 7 533 mhz amd with integrated graphics, just need to get a new fuse for that. We have a p4 with integrated graphics, but I can't place because p4-> no overclocking (dell) integrated graphics-> no overclocking, and the p4 isn't fast enough to place.

    np ... not a competition ... more of just running a benchmark and posting under Team Techpowerup ... so you don't need a monster machine
