XtremeLabs.org Primus Inter Pares III

XtremeLabs.org benching team was founded in late 2008. Less than a year later it became #1 in Ukraine and managed to get into HWBOT's TOP-20 Team League. Currently this community contains of 19 participants only. Entrance to XtremeLabs.org is open only to the strongest ones and most addicted.

Every year during summer-autumn season the team runs it's insider competition, 'Primus Inter Pares' Challenge ('The First among the Equal'). The challenge is for fun mostly and for affordable benching of popular hardware. Team gains boints, members gain boints and souvenirs, everybody gets as much fun as he wants to. E.g. during the 2009 'Primus Inter Pares' Challenge TiN's first Frankenstein was born . We appreciate crazy benching ideas.

Time for the new challenge has come! This year we want to involve as much people in the game as possible. That's why XtremeLabs.org together with HWBOT launches 'Primus Inter Pares III' Challenge.

These cards are quite cheap and popular to have real fun, the category is really strong!
