We're still getting over the emu war. 

Oh the great emu war, that was messy af

 

Catzilla would be nice to see. GPU GPUpi is also a fab bench imo.

More seriously, cheapaz-style stages would be cool - stuff that forces people to use crap hardware and mod it.  EG a 3D Dx11 stage (sky diver?) specifying a GPU that uses DDR3, a 2D stage specifying Intel G31 chipset, possibly another intel mobile stage like TC a few years ago.  A retro server/workstation hardware stage (or one where it's a viable option) would be good too - for example 3Dmark Vantage with the only restriction being that you have to use DDR2 for system memory could be really interesting.

Yes, this ^^^ 

Please give me a reason for my extensive collection of intel GMA boards. I've got a g31 board that does 520 fsb with almost no voltage control, give me a better reason than the sheer lulz to mod it for 600+.

If you mean AMD Bobcat arch then I'm in. My e2-2000 is itching to go. Does an entire 2 ghz on air! I need an excuse to take it cold.

Yes please! Don't forget 1156 again :( Lonely forgotten Socket

Also how about bclk/fsb across different sockets (like last years Team Cup memory frequency stage DDR1-4, but instead 775-1366-1156-1155-1150-1151 maybe?)?

This would be fun. Maybe leave out 1155 and 1150 though? 100 vs 115 is a big OC on those sockets but wouldn't make an appreciable difference in the overall average for that stage so it wouldn't really add anything to have those sockets in that stage. Maybe replace them with am2/+ or am3/+ where there's actually headroom for bclk OC. Or else just put it as 5 different platforms and also allow server sockets.

Big SP32M stage like last year please, but on AM3/3+/4

Then we will need a longer time for the comp.

 

It's an Intel thing

Yeah it's old, and what?  It's one of the easiest platforms to get decent OC boards for.

One of the best platforms ever. Never was an Intel fan then ... but the core 2 duo are sure alot of fun to OC. 2.4 to 3.6 GHz easy. :)

Cannot say many others enjoy a easy 50% OC

K it will be 10 stages, 5 stages 2D and 5 3D... 3-5 scores per stage

 

my biggest concern is do we allow Titan/RTX series yes or no

Agree. 
Hwbot is about taking hw to its limit, not about limiting hw.

Current OC has taken of who can spend the most to a ridicilous level, this is what I try to keep under control for these competitions like TeamCUp and co from now on...

From what I've seen comps are about both, much more so than just the normal hwbot leagues, that's kind of the point.
