Hey guys and gals,

The next Forum Wars, hosted by TRP, is quickly approaching! The rules have already been published, so I thought I would start recruiting my players. :)

Don't know what Forum Wars is? It's an inter-forum overclocking competition. Each forum forms a team of 18 players, according to a predefined set of rules. There are five benchmarks to run. Also, there are lucky draw prizes for the participants that will be announced later.

For the old timers, one thing I can tell you is that the team limitations changed quite a bit. There are no more cooling restrictions in any of the teams.

Everyone can check the rules here. The official website has not been updated yet since we're a bit early.

So, who wants to be part of the OCC team? :D

Here are the teams:

The Froot Loops team:
cjloki #2
CAINuKe
Flibo

The Cookie Nips team:
Zertz
yuridude
cjloki #1

The Babes of OCC team:
overclocking101
tacohunter52
Water_Hazard

The E-peen team:
gotdamojo06
wildman2
usaweapon777

Please don't take the team names seriously; They are meant to be a joke!

Don't worry, I will explain everything when the time comes. You'll see, it's pretty easy!

Edit: We have two other players also. Frank will be participating again, but most importantly, Bosco will also join the fun!!

Quick and maybe stupid question for you, Class F states Quad (4 thread), will an i7 860 with HTing turned off work or probably not?

Don't think I would be competitive in the C class with only a 860/GTX275 so just curious.

i7 2600K, ASUS P8P67 Deluxe, 16GB DDR-1600, Vertex 3 240, GTX 460 SLI, HWLabs GTX360, HeatKiller 3.0
i7 860, Gigabyte P55-UD4P, 8 GB's G.Skill DDR3-1600, Patriot Torqx 128 GB, EVGA GTX460's
i3 540 , ECS P55H-AK, CM Hyper 212+, 4 GB's HyperX 1600, EVGA GTS450, Corsair 650W, 150 Velociraptor, 640 7200.11
E1500, MSI G31, 4 GB's DDR2-1066 HyperX, EVGA GTX460 1GB, WD 750 GB, Seasonic 525W
Sager NP5165, i7 2630QM, OCZ Vertex 240, GT555M, 1920 X 1080 matte

An i7 with HT turned off should be fine. All screenshots also include CPU-Z so they will be able to see HT was disabled and only 4 threads were being used.

Don't forget not everyone signs up with cutting edge hardware either!
