  1. That's why I think it should be open to anyone with a qualifying board/CPU...and be a random drawing. Rewarding those who can push their hardware the furthest doesn't do anything for anyone.


    I still think you should have been slightly more patient and bought BluePanda's board. :P


    It rewards those who can push their hardware the furthest :P


    I was gonna buy her board, but then I sold my extra llano stuff for exactly the cost of a UD5 and decided I was to impatient to wait. :(

  2. Maybe I'm being stupid...but don't contests like these only award those that already have the best hardware?


    I mean - nobody is going to win with a UD3 board...so what's the point? The guys with the best stuff will win. The guys that could actually use a nice new board get left out...


    It's really hard to have an overclocking competition that's 100% fair to all the hardware possibilities out there. I actually ended up buying a UD5, just so I could play in this competition. Will I win a board, probably not (someone using LN2 will probably kill my scores LMAO), but even if I did it wouldn't make much sense, for practical purposes, to have a UD7 over a UD5, or even a UD7 over a UD3 Unless you really needed the extra PCIe slots.


    Even % increase competitions can be very flawed.


    What it comes down to is if you've got the required hardware and want to enter the competition enter it. If you don't have the hardware, overclock what you've got and just have fun anyway.


    There's no sense in complaining that the people who spent more money on there hardware have.., better hardware. :P

  3. Sorry if this is the wrong place or has been asked before.


    Anyway, I created a new team by leaving my old one and then choosing to create a team after I went back to that page.


    The team was created but I can't access the team account settings.


    Thanks for your help.
