Yeah, hope can get good result. I will try

I'm going to clear off my workbench when I get home and see if I can make the list. I don't have the hardware selection of some of the competitors, but hopefully we can make a good showing regardless.

For the formula it's limited to Rookie, Novice and Enthusiast.

However have a look at the RealBench Challenge. This one is open to all leagues, but limited to air and water cooling.

Have a look at the forum thread:!

For the Top 3 overall, 3 next-gen motherboard will be up to grab 🙂 By next gen we mean... 7th generation Intel CPU compatible 😄
