Hivizman - Brazilian Carnival Challenge

HiVizMan
Level 40
Roll up roll up it is Brazilian Carnival Time at ROG


37526


Beautiful Rio and on the 12th June the Beautiful Game will kick off. Yes it is time for World Cup 2014 Brazil.




So many reasons to love Brazil and football.




But we are Benchers not overpaid footballers. So lets get benching.


This challenge will run during the entire World Cup 2014 and end at the final whistle.





The Benchmarks

3Dmark05

3DMark FireStrike

Super Pi 1 & 32mil

ROG Realbench V2


Each bencher must choose a participating team as their playing partner, select a number between 1 and 31 and post up that number when you indicate you are going to be doing the Samba with us here on ROG. First come first serve this is a blind selection and no swapping out allowed. Brazil is taken as that is the Challenge Partner. The reason why will become apparent as you keep reading.

Well done Arne it is your effort and talent that have made that possible. UK has a large base of bencher's and it is quite an achievement to get to the top.

Arne I have seen that, Catzilla grabs my attention but I do not own any motherboards that are not ASUS, I did however just preorder two 290X Matrix Platinum's, finally some became available, I just recently purchased two 290X DCUII's because I didn't think I was ever going to get my hands on any Platinums and I need to familiarize myself with AMD I assume the chances of getting any of those booster card things is not a reality, are there plans for them to become commercially available? has anyone used the ones they have received? do they only help is using LN2? Does anyone know and will anyone tell? The older geezer needs answers
