    As hwbot is always lacking in funds and staff, I think it would be a great idea if hwbot introduced micro transactions in an EA style where we can buy a few different items with real money. This would help support the platform financially and I think as gamers love them so much overclockers would too. My suggestions are 1) buying points in different leagues (hw masters points are cheaper than actually league points) 2) buying into the next league. Say I'm a novice who has never used Ln2 but I want the cool elite status, I could just pay to more up, say a set amount per league moved up, with elite being highest price and enthusiast being the cheapest. 3) buying a a submission to be kept in the database even if it slightly broke the rules, but isn't and obvious cheap. Think of it like a fine for accidentally cover the cinebench render window or using windows 10 on sandybridge. 4) early access to a competition so you can put your scores in before anyone else to make sure the right wallpaper is up etc. Gamers love beta and alpha testing so overclockers will do as well. 5) buying extra hours at the end of a competition so you can ensure yours is the last sandbag and nobody can sneakily beat you right at the last second. 6) buying a point boost in a competition to add 100 points to your score so you can just beat out that pesky guy who spent the extra time tweaking his ram!!! Such an annoyance these kids who spend their whole week tweaking ram cos they don't have anything better to do I think with the formula laid out above hwbot will be rolling in it in no time. Hwbot can start up the world tour 2.0 with mega prizes like rolls Royce, rolex watches, holidays, 3175x Xeons. Also they could get faster servers, have a full time dev team working on making the database work more effectively and full time paid mods driving lambos to moderate competition submissions. Would also like to hear any other suggestions people have that we could put micro transactions on! #makehwbotgreatagain

    The intent is to provide overclockers with a sense of pride and accomplishment for unlocking different points. As for cost, we selected initial values based upon data from the Revision 7 Open Beta and other adjustments made to milestone rewards before launch. Among other things, we're looking at average per-player points earn rates on a daily basis, and we'll be making constant adjustments to ensure that players have challenges that are compelling, rewarding, and of course attainable via overclocking. We appreciate the candid feedback, and the passion the community has put forth around the current topics here on HWBOT, our forums and across numerous social media outlets. Our team will continue to make changes and monitor community feedback and update everyone as soon and as often as we can.

    Hi, up for sale are several highend ddr4 kits by G.Skill and some excessive DDR3 kits 1. 2x16GB G.Skill TridentZ RGB DDR4-3866 C18-18-18-38 1.35v In my opinion the best 2x16GB kit you can get at the moment, excellent bin and awesome for daily use at overclocked systems. The kit uses B-die ics, it did 3866 16-16-16-36 1,35v and 4133 c18-18-18-38 1,35v for me rockstable, and beat my old review kit I had 2016 of 3400c16, which were best bin at their time, easily by more than 300 mhz at same volts and timings. In box, like new, only used for some tests, manufacturing date 2018/october 2. 2x8GB G.Skill TridentZ RGB DDR4-4600C18-22-22-45 1,50v Like new, B-die, only used for a review. On Apex X specs and higher frequency were no problem, I also checked various settings for daily oc and 4300 C16 seemed to be sweetspot for my system. The Asus A2 problem with Apex IX and X (and to make this clear, it is an Asus problem when msi, asrock and other brands have boards that can run a2 layout 4000c12 and higher) affected these as well, on MOCF easy 4220 c12-11 xtu and geekbench, not maxed out, and 4133 12-11 tight waza, also not maxed, Impressive kit, like new, in box. Manufacturing date 2018/october 3. 2x8GB G.Skill TridentZ RGB AMD DDR4-3600C18-22-22-38 1,35v AMD optimized ram, as far as I know highest frequency bin for amd on the market. I only tested them on Apex X, 4100C18 worked around 1,35v-1,4v rockstable for me including memtest. Barely used, like new in box, manufacturing date 2018/October 4. 2x8GB G.Gskill TridentZ RGB DDR4-4000 C18-19-19-39 1,35v Solid kit, tested for daily oc on apex and mocf (4500 C19-19-19 1,35v/ 4133 C17-17-17 1T 1,4v MOCF). At a quick test the kit did 4000c12 waza on mocf at around 1,9v BIOS, 4133 failed at first try and I did not check more because I have better mems (like in this thread). In box, excellent condition, manufacturing date 2017/May 5. 2x8GB G.Gskill SniperX DDR4-3600 C19-20-20-40 1,35v Like new, used for a very quick test and ic confirmation, 3866 C16-19 daily worked, but I had problem to get 4K on the apex. Like new, in blister, manufacturing date 2018/october DDR3 6. 2x4GB Corsair XMS DDR3-2000 C9-10-9-27 1,65v Working and in very good, but used condition 8. 2x4GB G.Skill RipjawX DDR3-2133C10 Brand new from rma, no tests. Prices (plus shipping) 1. 400 Euros 2. 400 Euros sold 3. 150 Euros sold 4. 200 Euros sold elsewhere 5. 125 Euros sold elsewhere 6. 35 Euros sold 8. 40 Euros sold elsewhere The prices do not include shipping. Payment is possible with paypal (gift payment or buyer covers fees) or bank transfer in germany Shipping depends on location I have to ship to but should not be higher than 20 Euros worldwide with deutsche Post, cheap stuff I can ship for 7 Euros. No returns, ymmv, but I think people are quite successful at reproducing or even imporving my results mentioned in my threads.

    Appreciate the response. Totally fine if you want to keep private. I simply wanted to know if I need to try again, and seems the "hunt" continues

    How about loot boxes which might include special tweaks (saves user from begging or bending over to versatile ocers who donΒ΄t share) or, maybe as a highlight, which include the rules so many people see something they seem to have never seen before? Gamers like helpful items at lootboxes a lot, so this should sell ez and it also gives a true benefit πŸ˜›

    Yeah writing a plugin is the proper way but it's just too time consuming getting to know the invision pb framework, setting up a dev mode invisionpb to develop and test the plugin, etc etc. I just hacked the theme to include the info into an iframe. It's dirty but it works.

    $1300 fee to be eligible for 3D globals, perhaps? Technically no different to the current system...

    Is this really any different to buying a pot, a dewar, some flasks, current high end/high end for the gen hardware and then buying LN2, you're still basically paying money for it but in a more direct way.... Overclocking largely is pay to win at the high end.
