You are too kind sir

Truth is you did almost all the work, and deserve the credit.

Thanks Slots! Obviously, you played a huge role in our success! Talking about which - I could prolly bring your 580 back this Saturday if you're around...

Awesome work guys. Barely squeaked into 5th place, but damn that is good. Good job everyone, and a big time thanks to Dead Things, we all know that you did most of the work!!!

Congrats!!!

Question

I must say I feel uneasy to even thinking about joining a team, witch is lead by guy using nick Dead Things

That suggest too much that hardware will die in the process

Anyway, since you are bunch of cool people - is there any possible benefit from me, joining the team? Some of the sub-competitions looks like that I can use and utilize my ancient HW, like:

Quote:
#1: 2000: Coppermine
#2: 2000: Thunderbird
#4: 2002: Thoroughbred
#5: 2004: Gallatin, Prescott (non-64 bit)
There I could be somewhat helpfull. It is long time, but I dreamed about scoring some interesting records, like having fastest FX5600XT - I got somewhat special card, that was pretty close to some WR, when run like that:


So maybe with some help and faster CPU (AXP Barton 242x11 was used on the picture) I can score some better.

But can that help the team?


At one point in history I was 2nd in the world - but with underclocking


Now these suxxkas moved me on 5th place:
CPU-Z Highest Records ! (V1.01)
CPU-Z Validator 3.1
...and I'm not even listed there... But I have plans how to get to 1st place


...but hey, that is underclocking Not exactly making the machine faster, so... dunno if I could help HWC HWbot team somehow?

Trodas - you are MOST welcome to join our little team. As this year's Team Cup showed, it's a real asset to have somebody who has access to older gear. But it's GREAT to have somebody who has the kind of experience and expertise with the older gear that you can bring to the table - that's pretty rare these days, as I'm sure you know.

If it makes you feel any better, I was originally named after a hockey team, not all my dead gear. Did I say dead gear? I meant happy gear!
