In a flurry of air cooled i3 mhz, sno.lcn dethrones one of his idols from #1 on the benching team! Top 20 Top 20

Jumping from 3rd to 1st, in one night is no easy task, especially when you’re benching for the elusive Global HWBot points (or boints, as they’re known).  But he did it, using WPrime alone, securing over 38 points with just two benchmarks.

Who’s going to strike next?  Will Ross retaliate, will Maxi decide he wants to be #1 again… stay tuned to find out!  I know sno.lcn won’t go down without a fight though, and he’s got something up his sleeve.  Straight from his keyboard just yesterday, “I ordered a new cpu pot last night, hopefully it’ll be here in a few weeks. Then I can start benching like I mean it again.”  Lookout world… someone’s on a mission.

  1. If you're talking about on the i3 runs, I have no idea, I haven't been able to replicate it. It was some bugged ass combination of BIOS settings left over from a combination of my i7 860 settings and flashing the new BIOS. After clearing cmos, no more high RMA frequencies.
