HI Gyus.

Wellcome to the second round. 

Before George adds the background on the first page, I add it here.

Have a board (Asus A7V) and ram but no Duron and no Radeon 9100. Closest is a thunderbird athlon 900 that does 1100Mhz and a Radeon 9700 Pro that is similarly unimpressive.

Haven't got any mentionable stuff just wanted to do a submission for fun. I miss this competitions so much, unfortunatelly I haven't got too much oldschool stuff and what I have, those are from the latest "oldschool types".

I don't have time to do the second round. too much work in May-June. maybe I'll do tests after the end, just to compare.

However, I noticed one thing: many people complained in recent years that expensive and top of the line components are used in the cups.
But given the progress of this competition I can say that pulling the balls doesn't want anyone. Or simply because the competition organizes me))))

In the past they also complained about this, that the cups are always made for those who use ln2 or SS.

@GRIFF, so I can't post any 2D without Radeon 9100 which I don't have? Pretty strange limitation...

It's always been CPU+GPU for 3D and CPU for 2D. Tried to post a memory clock result and it says I must use Radeon 9100 for it.

No. Is the error. Is not not real limitation.

@GRIFF, didn't see in detail so I'll ask - video required for all submissions (benchmarks and valids)?

Screenshot required for valids?

Don't need for second round. There are already few participants.  and complicated life further makes no sense. In addition, the link to YouTube does not work on hwbot.

I was going to compete in this round just for fun, but I didn't realise you needed SDRAM. :( Also, the only 9100 I found was the one that Griff was selling.

Yep, socket A with SDRAM is pretty rare. I've found only 3 such boards in my collection.

Strange I have 7 or 8 boards but not all good for OC.
