    Quiet/Effective CPU Cooling Fan

    Any tower-type cooler that has a few copper heatpipes and a 120mm fan will run circles around the stock OEM cooler in both thermal performance and noise. You can get one starting around 25$ and when the fan gets noisy you can just swap it. Just my two cents.

    Last Man Standing OC Competition

    Just so you guys know, players can submit a link to a valid HWBot submission (as long as it has been done within the competition dates), meaning you can play in Last Man Standing while contributing to personal and/or team HWBot stats.
  11. The Raptor Pit presents: The Raptor Pit is proud to present you with the 3rd annual edition of The Raptor Bowl.

    People that entered the Bowl.... Don't forget to submit your scores. Deadline has been extended to Sunday January 17th 11:59PM CST to compensate for the technical problems we had last weekend. I hope everybody can get a score in! Especially you, The Smith... AMD Dual-Core class should pretty much be yours if you can make that 550BE sub-zero. It would guarantee you a prize!

    The Smith signed-up with a 550BE only. I got no request for a TWKR, so I guess he'll be benching it either for another event, or just for fun!

    Sorry about that. Working on it for you! We have problems with the email system this past week. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. We're working on it. Meanwhile, anybody that wants to join but doesn't receive the activation email, please say so here and we'll get you activated. Cheers!

    Everyone's Invited to The Raptor Bowl!!!

    No, you can still join! We extended the sign-up deadline to January 5th 11:59PM Central Time because we had issues with the activation emails and many people couldn't join us. It's fixed now and you can join! See you there! http://www.theraptorpit.com/forum/index.ph...ost&p=84261

    You can enter both classes if you feel like it, Smith! You may sign-up your 965 for the X4 class and at the same time, enter the 550 for the X2 class. This year, we even have a player who entered 4 classes with 4 different CPUs... I don't think having many hard drives installed will hurt your score. You can set Crystal Mark to bench the partition of your choice. This way you can choose your fastest drive and it will not bench another drive or partition. Cheers!

    That would create a 3.4Ghz Phenom II X2... What does CPU-Z say when you lock two cores in the BIOS and boot in Windows? What I fear is that it won't compare to anything that is currently selling on the market and may result in an unfair advantage over retail parts. Anyhow, we still need you to in the AMD Quad-Core Class to show Equinox and RawZ how it is done.

    What part(s) were you looking to enter?

    Everyone's Invited to The Raptor Bowl!!!

    Hi Mr. Smith! We'll keep it to core unlocking for now. Core unlocking is pretty simple, just unlock everything on the CPU and you end up with a Phenom II X4. That is a no brainer. Core "locking", on the other hand, is much trickier and harder to implement in a competition. We hope to see you there, Smith! And all of you guys here at OCC, come over and join us!

    Hi Smith, We are currently working very hard with hardware companies to provide prizes for this competition but at this point, we cannot confirm any sponsors and therefore, any prizes. As soon as we get confirmation, we'll let everybody know. Thanks, and hoping to see you there for the competition!
