Another potential option for this might be attempting to OC an Arrandale with something like SetFSB. So if anybody has an i3-330M to 390M - that could work.

I do have an i3-380M now that you mention it so worse case scenario we'll have all the required subs.

I went through some of the hardware I have on hand to help the Cause.

LGA775 2.8 Northy
LGA775 Celly 2.66
LGA775 Celly E1200
LGA1156 i3 540
LGA1366 Xeon W3503
LGA1366 X5650s (Twins)

Unfortunately I'm missing boards to handle them chips. If any of you guys have them on hand, the chips are yours for the Cup. It dies? Well, the chip shall have a National monument, having given its Life to the Canadian Cause.

'xept the Twins. I'd like to see those back. Then again, in DT's filthy fingers, I ain't sure anymore...
Let me know if they help.

I do have an i5 3570k wc'ed that I would not mind hearing scream... only have a single 580 though, but wouldn't mind buying a second / or a Team Red card for the Team.

ive got an i3 540 rig at a friends place. Ive been meaning to jump into this as ive almost got all stages covered, just been working like a dog and finished moving as of recent. Only thing im really lacking is the lower gpus. Might have access to a 470 and an apu setup as well.

The more they merrier, even if someone has spoken up for a stage please feel free to put up scores. Sometimes a submission can help free up another overclocker to put up another set of hardware in the stage. On top of that, submissions have been disqualified before so a backup score is never a bad idea.
