Just planting the seeds. HWBOT's annual Country Cup competition is coming up in November. Always a lot of fun, as overclockers all across Canada #ComeTogether to compete for the honour and the glory. Let's show the world that honour is spelled with a 'U'! And they can also spell gloury with a 'U' if they want to! We wouldn't have a problem with that!

Ahem, un-Canadian chest-pounding aside, I'll post more info once more becomes available. Looking forward to it!



Never heard of this, care to explain eh?

If I was still in bc I would have hardware for every tier. This year I'll try and throw some support in where I can.

It's an overclocking / benchmarking competition. What's neat about it, though, is that - in years past at least - it includes an awful lot of different stages for all kinds of different hardware. So whether you're rawking a shiny new system or still keeping it old school, there's usually at least one stage you can compete in.

Hopefully there is something I can compete with too :) It suxx to recieve a K6 only after the competition is done. That is kinda too late...  ;D http://hwbot.org/submission/2996958_

So the number of ties give me some hope that I should compete with at least something. Too bad Soul did not joined the Teamcup 2015 - at least a little help could come a long way there  :)  And I get to work on low AMD clock too.

Trodas is a time Traveler who lives in a post World War III bomb shelter some say, others say he travels between dimensions like Rick and Morty and his Dimension is filled with hardware from the 90s.

Either way his ghetto hardware is awesome :)

True, but I need sponsor for that  ;) Besides, the keyboard is fine and for old-school Socket 7 is 15' CRT monitor fine. If you can throw away some LCD monitors, then I would be catching  ;D  (but shipping will cost somethig, right, Soul?)

Baige is fine. You can quess on what CPU I type this message anyway :) It may surprise you... :) And of course on another baige keyboard... :) They are good for me. The IBM one you talking about I had once. But these keys do click too much and need a long press... impractic. Even my father hrow that crap out  ;)
He moved to old-school Siemens keyboard, which is IMHO also terrible. But when there are many machines running, then I need every keyboard and mouse I can get. I use even some ball mices, as I have shortage of components when many things should be running at once  :P

Nah, things are already getting slowly more modern. While it is true, that my best clocking CPU is the P4 670 ( http://valid.x86.fr/vygery ), then thanks to YOU I can play some modern games too, when I want, so modernization go on :) Currently I waiting on the case fans and then I could finish my Xeon build that will hopefully prove to be usable and more modern machine for daily work and even capable of some gaming, while still running on WinXP  ;)

Yes, there are shortcommings like I need max 1G ram for graphis card, yet still it should have some power - witch is difficut choice - but all it all it should work. It already prove that it can run WinXP, when I modify the install CD (w/o the modification it crash on beginning of the install, regardless of overclocking settings): http://hwbot.org/submission/2936189_

Now the question is only - why when I modify English WinXP install things works, but when I modify Czech WinXP install, things won't work (won't install). I quess that I have to obtain a different WinXP build and perhaps do it manual way, w/o the help of nLite... So I have long way to go, when I did not like Win7 system and noisy computers  ;)
