    Points per person challenge?
    Or team points? I'm lost here but to dam tired to read.. If its per person points then IMO the man with the most computers wins. I like the team points but whatever I'll sit back and wait till all is figured out

    Team with most points wins. Person on team with most points is awesome for leading the team.

    @fullinfusion we sure would love to borrow your rig (or at least your down time) for the Challenge if you can swing it. :respect:


    As regards team members and points, usually there is a minimum to be eligible for whatever prizes, but it's set as a very attainable limit that everyone should have no problem hitting.

    That's NP my man. I'm in and I let bill know to give me two weeks notice. My two weeks = about 3 days to prep the system as work is driving me over the edge. Just going to wash the rad clean and button it up and start it and go and watch its progress from the road and hope its back to its normal stable self.

    Well I popped the block off the cpu and used my ArctiClean on block and cpu and put on my new favorite TIM...

    That dam MX4 is giving me a 8-10c drop in temps under full OCCT stress test vs the AS5 :wtf: . I ran the stress for a few hours this afternoon and been playing swap you gpu bioses all day on the gpu and I cant believe it.

    Anyways Phaze one of two is done and ready to WCG this bitch for all she can do + ;)

    OK Team(s)* here's the news on the special challenge prize......

    the54thvoid has stepped up yet again and has offered to donate his GTX Titan with EK full cover waterblock and backplate to a dedicated and active TPU crunching/folding Team member :eek:-:rockout:-:respect:
    [​IMG]

    *Note- We are still working on the details on eligibility requirements for this prize.... However, we can state that the winner will need to be active on both the crunching AND folding Teams

    Thanks again to @the54thvoid for his continued support of our Teams!!! :toast:

    Was it worth taking a peek? :D

    If anyone else wants to donate an item or a game to the Challenge giveaway(s) please post in this thread or drop me a PM

    NO! Not worth the peak at all lol... can I cross fire it with a few 290's :roll:

    Id fold for you all, but on a single income.... bill's are hard enough without the added hydro bill.

    But like I said I do offer something well worthy but I wont spoil it till it's a for sure thing.
