Teeehee, sounds good! I'm going to do some SuperPI tomorrow with my Celeron and Pentium D. (Dry Ice )

My Celeron does 4.8Ghz on water, so it should be interesting.

i think we need to fill a team and then do all test, addition the point with their method and submit the score (screenshot to prove our result)

could be cool to have a team on dry ice

what kind of specs would you be looking for? If sli wasnt in the rig would it still be a contender?
