I'm with Bones. Its only fun if your goals fit your approach. I've been playing in AM3 (cold friendly)  posted more than a few 0.2 pointers just because I felt good about them and that is al

Yes, let us muddy the waters even more by dividing up leagues even further when we can't even positively prove the temp or type of cooling used as it is now. Want to see better score and stats? 

First bench hard on LN2 and come back.... LN2 is way more frustrating at moments as usually all of your pretesting on air/water makes no sense under extreme cold... also you don't have hours of time t

That's your way of interpretation... and it will not be correct for many... believe me...

So my room ambient is 21°C, my setup is inside but my radiator is outside at -15°c... Ambient temp or not ? How to judge?

Overclockers will bend rules to get any advantage.... it will never work as not everyone plays nice

When I was new to competitive overclocking I had s775 setup that was doing 3.75 ghz in summer and 4.1ghz in winter with open windows - exact same hardware and placement in the room. So what is air cooling?) Single stage actually gives much less spread in temperatures.

No-one will voluntarily have a -20C room which they have to live in

In the hottest days of last summer, when I run both single stage units and something hot, I had easy +40C in the room even with ventilation:) So discomfort is not an argument:)

Come on people, ambient = room ambient. Not external ambient - that doesn't make any sense. No-one will voluntarily have a -20C room which they have to live in. :P

Actually that's exactly what I did when I started out benching. A bunch of my Socket 478 scores on water are done in winter, at night, with the window wide open in my room. Ambient probably about - 5c in my room. Even in Wales we don't get the chilly - 20c I dreamed of.

Okay. You changed my opinion. I was not aware of the extreme measures, that are used to "enhance" ambient coolers.

Ouch. what parameters do you use to consider an inactive participant. 1-2 years ?

I have to add to this (I'm the Yand to your Yin, Your other cup of Tea, Ect, Ect). If you set a Time Limit, you must also set a submission limit. Do you need to sub 1, 2 - 10 scores a year to be considered active?

What if :

Your new score is lower than 2 years ago, does it still count for being active?

You only submit scores for Competitions, Challenger Series, Ect, Ect. Theses do not always give points and are limited (Less than 5 ) submissions.

Thank You 🙂

Personally, I wouldn't be harsh on this. 1 sub per year would be enough to keep you active.

Whether it gets points or not, I could care less. Just something to show that you're still interested.

I'm very interested. But unfortunately while I'm doing something else, maybe in 4 months there will be time to do a little bit of CPU selection. And it will take 15 months from the last submission of the result. Let's expand it for 2 years for inactivity.

One day I was benching actually on the street in the winter night. "Room" ambient was -20°C.

Reminds me of when I did the same, had to keep going inside because my hands didn't want to work and warm gloves were too big for keyboard
