  1. did you need a different bios for this? it is not on official cpu support list?
  2. 1s out of 1. I see the 9980xe is selling well the top overclockers :P
  3. yes, it could display a meme telling them to read the rules and not to be a noob.
  4. could you rerun this please with the correct info on the screenshot please ?
  5. The os should be in a drop down menu and only show the os's that are allowed to be used with that hardware and benchmark in the drop down. That way you can't choose the wrong one at all.
  6. It still doesnt change the fact that someone can spend more on ambient.
  7. You cant complain the ln2 cooling is not accessible because of money either. Its just a lie, if you benched ln2 on socket 775 chips you could gets loads of points vs an ambient watercooled setup with a 7980xe and a 2080ti. 7980ex water cooled system is going to set you back like £3000 with used parts ? ln2 is cheaper pot £200 dewar £600 2x 775 boards £200 ddr2 binned £50 10 binned cpus £200 a crap tier gpu to display things £10 Thats £1260 so you can get over 1000L of ln2 before its even close to an ambient system which is worth less points, but cost more, so you this is the same price as even a mainstream setup under water with 9900k and half decent modern gpu's like gtx580, hd7970. So you cant use split leagues by cooling because of cost as an excuse. Someone with more money on ambient can beat you just as easily as someone with same or less on LN2. You arent giving yourself and advantage by money, only reducing competition by number of people in league alone.
  8. Not everyone can get a medal, some have to be losers. Unless there is a law in your country saying you cant buy dice or ln2 then you are choosing to be slow. Its as simple as that. Its like turning up to and f1 race and saying, look guys i am only going to run 4cyl even though you are running v8, you should make my own special class so i can be a winner too. Why dont we just have a separate league for everyone, then we can all be 1st
  9. have you got any? they are pretty good compared to the newer cards.
  10. It was elite, extreme and enthusiast originally. Apprentice, rookie and novice were added in later. There are advantages and disadvantages to both systems. 2 leagues Pro's Easier to manage Does not create arguments about who uses what cooling. Has good incentives to move to extreme cooling. Con's People will still argue what is classed as sponsored vs not, so this needs to be very clearly defined. Noobs may be overwhelmed at first with could put them off. 6 league Pro Noobs don't have to compete with extreme or people who have been on for years People who don't have access to extreme cooling can compete in a league with similar levels of cooling. Cons The is no incentive to go up a league, some people will get to the top of enthusiast or apprentice and not want to use better cooling because in there mind they are top and they would go down. Its like being king of the slums vs being the average Joe in the business area. It is also harder to explain and manage. Creates issues of proof of cooling etc. I personally think 3 will be best. Basically 2 league system with a rookie league that they are in for 6 months then automatically move out of. This solves the problem of the noobs feeling like the have been thrown in the deep end and there is just a set time period to move leagues, so nobody can argue about it and they is no questions of proving when someone joined as its in the database and run automatically.
