    I will try to get that going before 22:00GMT (6pm Eastern) tomorrow


    Same as xvi- can do a run with my water cooled 7970 if that helps :)

    this is what I like about this forum and the reason I put a lot of effort into doing something for it!

    tbh any benchmark you know how to run or if you think you are capable at scoring good with something then do a run, submit for techpowerup! and have fun.

    Norton what cpu is that 7970 paired with?
    xvi - what you got to play with?

    I wish I had thought about that before. I just took my 7970s out of my rig yesterday... :mad:

    I'll be PMing you d1nky for some insight as to what is good and how I should do it. I should be ready by Sunday.

    Wonder if I can run Cinebench on the 48 core Opty server @2.83Ghz? Will it scale correctly?

    The 7970 is running with an FX-8350.... I also have an i7-970 I can try some runs on but it's only air cooled and probably won't run it over 4Ghz

    I'll look into it over the weekend and post in your thread when ready or if I have any questions :cool:

    Looks like Cinebench runs better in Win 7, so I'll try that as well.

    *Note- I will be out for a few hours and will respond to any posts/PM's when I return.

    Thanks!!!!

    the list is for ppl he was unsure about and anyone on that list that wants to be eligible for prizes needs to pm him. It isn't the drawing list if thats what you thought.

    @Norton I just had a talk with the Deake guy, He said He would like to pass on this (a chatlog from steam)

    Code:
    18:53 - ギガリンブレーカ〜!: G'day!
    18:53 - ギガリンブレーカ〜!: The TPU Team captain is asking whether You are entering for the HW / paypal gift / etc. Give-away
    18:54 - ギガリンブレーカ〜!: as You do qualify
    18:54 - ギガリンブレーカ〜!: =]
    18:54 - ギガリンブレーカ〜!: but since He did not see You post anything, He is unsure if You are entering or not
    18:55 - DennisR is now Online.
    18:55 - DennisR: negative, i pass up for that :)
    18:55 - ギガリンブレーカ〜!: Okay, will inform Him :]
    When I directed Him to the giveaway threads when He joined us, He did tell me the same thing, too. Except in much more implicit manner. *shrug*

    Hey Team

    *this is NOT related to the first list

    I have started sorting out the list(s) of crunchers so we can do the prize drawings this evening and have a question for these members from Canada and Mexico:

    See the list (below)

    [​IMG]
    If you're on this list- you need to post here or PM me to let me know if you will be participating in the hardware portion of the prize drawing and agree to pay the shipping difference (US vs Canada/Mexico) on the prize if you happen to win or if you would like just participate in the non-hardware prizes.

    If anyone knows someone on the list- please try to contact them with a link to this post.


    *Note- I will be out for a few hours and will respond to any posts/PM's when I return.... I know I said that an hour ago but will actually be heading out the door in about 20 minutes :p

    Thanks!!!!
