It's all about keeping it fun. Something that is losing ground in competitive overclocking.

Your P3 750 looks golden chip, did you sell it?

Yes I did. I dumped everything at once. Just wanted the space back.
I do hate selling that 750mhz CPU.

Mr [MENTION=29013]Kotori[/MENTION] in this final round a competition with you, or with your teammates, like [MENTION=11249]Mr.Scott[/MENTION] and the other members of your team,
it is a privilege and honor to be, me and my teammates a part of competitors.
It doesn't matter who is gonna win this stage, of the specific competition.

I belive that:
[MENTION=18651]I.nfraR.ed[/MENTION] for his own reasons didn't play in this competition

Our neighbors and friends Italians, this year,
are very strong as always, especially to 2d benchmarks

Anyway congratulations to every one member,
who took a part in this competition.

Yeah this season has been awesome, tough competition and some new records being set. I always find it a damn sight more fun to see what people can do in this comp than global first being broke every other week :)
