Np !

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".

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))))

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

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.
