Just had a read through, there's quite a list of prizes there :thup:

I'll see what I can come up with Scotty. Busy time for me over the next few weeks. Have to get Montreal out of the way before I can concentrate on anything else.

It's more about fun and comradery than anything else. ;)
Not much different than your marathon's. If internet beers were possible, we'd be doing that too. :D

This looks like a fun competition. I have E6600 & X6800 Conroe's, but I don't have any AMD stuff. :(

I can confirm it is. Cuz it kicks the snot outta mine on the bot. LOL

I may throw some subs in the comp. I don't have any 775/771 stuff so no way to win, but I'm here for the beer anyhow.

:cheers:

HAH!! Don't feel bad. I have plenty of AMD stuff, and one s775 board and a celeron D. Woopty Doodah!

But here's the chip that I plan to bench the snot out of. Got it all cleaned up, ready for the Dice pot. If the results aren't good enough... ln2.

Pretty sure it's the one in his sig blaylock. I checked the 6000+ pretty carefully to make sure it was a Windsor and not a Brisbane. The windors tend to clock better.
Which CPU were you referring to Blaylock, your looks like a Windsor. Maybe just the luck of the draw or heat holding you back

Yeah mines a Windsor(here), but doesn't clock well. It's a lottery thing although I haven't dropped it into my Giga 790FX-UD4P. I don't expect it'll do any better that the ASUS did.


EDIT: I apologize Johan, I was mixing up your 3800+

I'm looking forward to this.

Really glad a lot of you guys are interested! Just keep in mind that cooling is only one small part of getting a good or perhaps great benchmarking time. You and I will have issues if we don't spend time tweaking the stripped OS and Ram .... hint hint.
