Hey Team,

It's still pretty chilly around here this time of year so to warm things up we've decided to host a crunching Challenge. :)

We've opened a Team Challenge at WCG starting on 2/23/2018

Details:


Link:
https://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/team/challenge/viewTeamChallenge.do?challengeId=8891

Now to do some planning.

Will there be prizes for Team members who participate?

Absolutely!:cool:
We already have some items coming in with more to come and additional donations are welcome

First prize offered will be a sweet X79 hex core Cruncher Combo :cool:

What else?

We want to hear from you. Post your comments, thoughts, and questions in this thread.

@Norton and @T-Bob, do you know what IC's are on those Corsair rams? I have a 2 sets of 2x4gb. Corsair Dominators with samsung and Mushkin Redline with hynix. Both are nice clocking sets, I'd be willing to add to the cruncher to make it a quad channel set up if they will work with the Corsair LPX.

@Norton the ram kit is a Corsair vengeance LP 2 x 4GB (model CML8GX3M2A1600C9) I have no idea which IC's it uses but I can find out if needed?

Newbie calling ,

How do you join the challenge?

and what do you have to do ?

and When?
I believe all the info needed to join is in the OP. Challenge begins 2-23-2018 and runs through 3-1-2018. All you need to do is run WCG for team TechPowerUp for the duration of the challenge, on any systems that you can donate time on.
