Thanks for the welcome, however, I already have my team and we are good this way :p Nothing personal, but I'm more patriottic than you could believe :D

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 :D

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?

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.

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 :p
