While higher individual stage rankings would have been nice from a prize standpoint, we got THIRD in a huge competition against all the best teams on HWBot. I think this calls for celebration, personally.
Makes me very proud to be part of this team. This is one of the greatest groups of people assembled in this hobby. The level of teamwork here astounds me.
It looks like our memory place got bumped up to 2nd after an AWARDFABRIK score getting kicked out for ES and no screenshot.
This is a list of all that have participated. Please let me know if I missed anyone!!!

This is the prizes that we came up with at the beginning. (Copied from the first post)
If someone could verify the previous posts for me, then I will do the drawings.

There will be at least two random draw prizes for anybody that submits a benchmark. Likely two drawings for $20 ea.
There will be at least two more random draw prizes for the people that have our highest team score in a category. One drawing for $45 and one drawing for a motherboard.
*****we also have another prize to be given away! A Bobnova'd 8800GTS512MB with the reference cooler and vmods!!!!!******

Entries by stage won:
Optytrooper 3
Trekky 1
Bobnova 4
Woomack 5
Nooster 1
Psykoikonov 1
xsuperbgx 8
keny 2
Moz_21 1
SF101 2
gregmacknass 1
Tech Tweaker 1
I.M.O.G. 5
wagex 1
drshivas 1
Janus67 1
TsunamiJuan 2
Dejo 1
xxrabid93 1

I will start with the motherboard, then draw for the $45, then the two $20 prizes. One entry in the drawing for each stage won. One prize per person, so whomever wins the first drawing will not be eligible for the rest of the prizes and the person that wins the second drawing is not eligible for the rest of the prizes. etc.

For the memory contest, it looks like we will get a couple sets of ram. We will have a drawing between the memory stage winners for those. I think it would be best to wait on that until we get a confirmation from hwbot.

Looks correct too me.

The memory clock makes me sad. It sucks knowing that barrring hardware failures I could have done better. I can't help feeling I let the team down..... You should see my CUSL2-C damn thing looks like it literally caught fire which it did.

On a happier note we did damn well considering we only had arouind 20 people benching!
Added another prize: 8800GTS512MB with the reference cooler and vmods.

I will do the drawing tonight or in the a.m. I am just leaving to go out hunting for a while. I will see if I can put a stream up when I do the drawings.
Oohhhh prizes, I also think we did damn good for such a small team :beer:

ya i got alot of points from this!! only need 6 point to get to 20 and i got to run some on my 1100T and have not even started on other CPUs
I haven't done this before, so it may be lame to watch.
I will do the mobo first.
