I propose to make a list of unauthorized motherboards here. I think that those two processors are server / industrial board.

Please follow the general rule guideline , which is 

(Mendocino cores only)

(Non Intel chipset motherboards)

(No server hardware allowed-only desktop products)  <= General rule for all hwbot competitions , and also specifically for osibs to avoid ServerWorks chipset boards

 

What's left ?

Plenty of boards with VIA Apollo Pro133A

I hope i helped you.

Via Apollo Pro266 with DDR is allowed?

Double cpu motherboards with one cpu mounted?

I wish. :)

I took that as falling in the server hardware group.

Dual cpu board is the server board....ok

Via Apollo Pro266 is not server chipset and single cpu boards must be allowed for me.

I proposed to make a list of motherboards or chipsets in particular to avoid problems in the future.

Im not sure Ive got it right, since its the first time I set up a contest but let me know if something need to change.

Edit: You just want s370?

Please  lets stay as close as possible to the Mendocino era !!!

Meaning , lets stick to SDRAM only.

Please adjust the competition page , with the available chipset options for VIA , SIS and Ali

And:

-SDRAM limitation

You can use any board , with VIA , SIS , Ali chipset and SDRAM.

In case you have a hybrid board with both SDRAM and DDR , you can use it with SDRAM only.

 

I hope it's clear enough.

not all dual-processor boards with VIA chip are server (ECS D6VAA, Abit VP6) and Celeron not a server processor. If someone can start system with dual Mendocino I do not see any problems.

If you are lucky to have a dual cpu board (like Abit VP6) which can SMP Mendocino ... you can use it.

Hmm, so far everything with more than one socket and anything caled Xeon / Opteron / Quadro / Firepro was considered "server". This doesn't apply here?

As far as i can remember we had a dual S462 stage last year, so there allways was some server(ish) hardware involved :)

If dualboards are allowed thet would mean that anyone who want's to have a chance in the wprime stage needs one... If that is the case we have to agree on using them as soon as possible, otherwise there will be complaints from people who spent money on such a board and are not allowed to use it...

I agree with you , on the second part of your phrase.

On the first part , no.

Because since the Abit BP6 era , the pc industry created a special product category for home users.

Dual socket boards where not server-workstation only (not anymore).

Boards like BP6 , VP6 , A7M266-D .... up to later models such as EVGA SR-2 , were not server products.

They were dual cpu boards for home users.

Should have left it single processor only as the comp has already started.

 

I'm rather irritated now. 2 rounds in and problems with both of them.

Please bullet proof the rest of the rounds right now before this happens again.

Yes you are correct.

http://oc-esports.io/#!/round/osibs_s3r4/3380/cinebench_2003

All teams started with single cpu , until OnisA from XtremeOverdrive OC team Italy , posted a score with dual cpu's

After that , the teams adjusted their entries.

I havent changed the specs of this round.

There was no mention about cpu count , from the start.

You could have written your opinion in the preparation thread earlier.

Why now ?
