Old School is Best School: Season 3, Round 2 Kicks Off January 15th - Socket 939 plus GeForce 7

The second round of this year’s Old School is Best School contest kicks off next, inviting old school Overclockers to revisit the classic AMD Socket 939 platform plus Nvidia GeForce 7 series graphics cards. Round 2 runs from January 15th to February 15th with three stages designed specifically to tickle your nostalgic senses.

Old School is Best School Round 2: January 15th to February 15th

Firstly, let me give you a quick rundown on exactly what the Old School is Best School contest is all about. We all know that many older overclockers can get pretty nostalgic and dewey-eyed for the ‘good old days’ of overclocking. We all remember the first PC we built, repaired or overclocked. The truth is that seasoned members on HWBOT and OC-SPORTS enjoy any excuse to revisit hardware platforms from the distant past, digging out boxes of classic hardware that we have stashed away in our attics and garages. An old school overclocker enjoys any kind of retro action, which is exactly the point of the Old School is Best School contest.

The OSiBS contest series spans the Overclocking season with month-long contests that challenge Overclockers to compete on three stages using specific hardware from the past. Here are the stages we have lined up in Round 2 of Season 3.

Sorry, in between switching to a new admin back-end and traveling for CES I haven't been able to finish the limitations on the competition page. They will be done before the competition starts :D

No rest for the oldschoolers :D and for mods :p

Damn it, I just recently sold my 7800 and 939 setup. :( Will enjoy to see how this one turns out! 939 can be both a very fun and hard platform for overclocking. With all the mods out there for 939 boards and gf7xxx cards this should end up being fun to watch.

I'm in this one, have the required gear :p

United States MR. Horse says:

I may just buy some 939 parts. I do have time before this starts. I like 939 but never get around to rely benching it. The parts I sold were not that good for it anyway. So I'm not all that good with it like I am with slot1. EDIT: I'm in on this one. I'll find some parts. I sure I can, only need a mobo. I have a local source for gx2 :D and already have all the other needed parts. I'll probably stick with air, but who knows, I may get back into dice. But Its winter, I'll probably just put the system out side. :p

@ SDOUGAL
ich habe mal eine dumme Frage. Kannst du mich bitte mal aufklären, warum ich dich bei allen Themen mit einem Text sehe?
Bitte nicht böse sein oder falsch verstehen, ich kenne die Hintergünde nicht. Denn Benchen tust du ja nicht sehr viel.

is anyone else having trouble subbing in hwbot realbench, ??? everytime i try it says it wont parse the file, tried click screenshot then upload file, save , then tried just upload file ,save , same answer , ???

Invalid data file: Unable to parse the datafile

websmile says:

You use 2,44 and load directly after submission? Saving file doesnt work, so you need to bench with internet connection until the new version finally will fix this
