Yes,but i am not stupid.
quick question, does the "3DMARK 03 'BUDGET' CARD COMP" allow sli?
only it says card, not cards?
just wondered you know
Count me in! Hoping to win this
nice to see a new face, get in and join techpowerup! hwbot team and bench on!
the 3dmark01 and 'budget' card stage is single gpu only!
Thanks for the welcome, however, I already have my team and we are good this way Nothing personal, but I'm more patriottic than you could believe
The nice thing is that I already have good scores laying around and that I can repeat if necessary, and all of them were made on W8, so I have to do them again, and they'll be even better
heres a link to the rules - http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showpost.php?p=2984380&postcount=1
the comp page should get updated soon enough, apologies for any confusion!
and the competition prizes is only for tpu hwbot members.
the aim was to get techpowerup members benching and back on the map of overclocking!
I read them all, no worries! I was talking about the Windows 8 fact:
all of my scores are made on W8, so in order to be valid, I'll have to reinstall another OS so that I can bench and apply for the competition
that's cool, but I believe the competition/prizes will only be for tpu hwbot members, to encourage people on this site and people not in teams etc to join and bench.
Oh, damn, there's the limitation that states:
You must be member of TechPowerUp!.
If the comp needs people to join the HWBot TPU team, nobody keeps someone from joining the team, winning the comp and leaving the team...got my point?
Yup, but its a really dirtbag thing to do and its easy enough to get banned on hwbot if you wanted to be a dirtbag
the majority of people on tpu hwbot are members of this site, also a lot of those members are in different extreme/pro teams as well.
if people want to join, try to win and leave. im not stopping them! but they still got to try and win!
the whole point is to get people interested, get tpu members benching, improve our ranking and have fun!
also I bet theres a few techpowerup members here that will try and stop them people from winning
Yup, I agree, but if limitations are so tight, I doubt there will be many people benching for this comp :\
I'd really love to bench for this comp, but I'm in my team since 3 years and moreover I'm the team leader, if rules don't change, well, good luck and have fun guys
Thanks for being honest, but I prefer 10 participants who will stay and help rather than 20 who will just join to win without limitations of being tpu! members
This competition isnt for the oc community, it is for the oc community of techpowerup, we are trying to help others to start overclocking and enjoy their benching time by organizing such competitions.
Got the point, yes I hope there'll be a bigger competition with less limitations, TPU is the leader for IT news in the world, so yea, it deserves a great OC team, sorry for not being part of it However, be sure, you just earned a new user on this forum
This competition is really long so I'm holding out. Benching for 1-4 hours every few days just not submitting because so far stuff either doesn't work, doesn't run fast enough or I'm not able to participate.
boilerhog and bartleby could you resubmit with single cards on the 3d01 and 'budget' stage, thanks!
just submitted my i5 3570k super pi results....can't seem to break 4.7ghz even with an offset of .300
So I take it SLi is not allowed? because that takes a lot of worry out of me because I can only access a single gts 250(It belongs to a friend) at best.
yeaaahhh i'll submit wit my E6600
could always bench whats in ya sig as well!
I'm assuming new registrants aren't allowed to enter?
Nope go for it.
I was looking to maybe join another team besides my Pro team..
I would definitely like to help out and hopefully get some guys into the pro league eventually
How can I help?
Anyways I joined, so lets get benching
this is exactly what we are after, some people with experience and that will stick around helping out!
thanks for joining!
Wonder if these settings will be enough to take the AMD top spot...I know I can break out my 2x4GB kit of sammy low profile and really push the memory speed up, but if these will work
