Hi, I recently did a search for the oldest SP32M hardware golds. One that came up was OnePageBook's X6800 run. Great, I thought, let's try to beat a 12 year old record. When I researched it a little more, I came across this newspost. This brought up a couple of questions in my mind: i If OPB was a notorious cheater, is his 32M run also cheated and therefore possibly unbeatable? In general, should members banned for life because of cheating have all their results purged? I am not sure about 2). On the one hand it's very time-consuming to analyse potentially hundreds of submissions to check whether they are cheated, on the other hand you run the risk of purging legitimate historical records if you simply purge all of them without checking. I'd like to hear other people's opinions on this topic. Edit: relevant XS thread: http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?227198-Onepagebook-Lifetime-Ban-at-HWbot/
General Information The Overclockers League is the most prominent leaderboard at HWBOT. Developed by former staff member Mtzki and introduced in 2006, the League has undergone many updates to accomodate all aspects of overclocking. In its current form, the League is based on three parameters: benchmark rankings, hardware rankings, and competitions. Your Overclockers League score is calculated as follows: OCL = SUM [Top15(benchmark) + Top20(hardware) + Top10(competition)] The League is sub-divided in five categories, depending on your status in the overclocking world. There are: Elite, Extreme, Enthusiast, Novice, and Rookie overclockers. Each class has its own leaderboard, but the points are all based on the same algorithms and points. The classes are defined as follows: Elite: The top crop of the overclocking world â€“ compete with LN2, engineering samples and connected to the hardware industry. Extreme: Compete with all types of extreme cooling and use retail hardware. Not backed by the hardware industry. Enthusiast: Use only ambient cooling Novice: Use ambient cooling and has been at the site less than one year Rookie: Use ambient cooling and has been at the site less than three months You can find the Overclockers League here: Combined: http://hwbot.org/league/ Elite: http://hwbot.org/leagues/elite Extreme: http://hwbot.org/leagues/extreme Enthusiast: http://hwbot.org/leagues/enthusiast Novice: http://hwbot.org/leagues/novice Rookie: http://hwbot.org/leagues/rookie Let's use this topic to chit-chat about what's going on in the leagues!

General Information The Hardware Masters is different from any other ranking at HWBOT. It features the leaderboard based on how you perform in hardware categories only, ranking overclockers by the total sum of hardware points. The calculation of the Hardware Masters is thus as follows: HWM = SUM [All(hardware)] You can find the Overclockers League here: http://hwbot.org/league/hardware_masters Latest Standings Extra: 2D Hardware Masters Extra: 3D Hardware Masters
