so far Gomeler is in the lead, but 75mins out of 120 minutes is still available.

That is because they are special VIP's that are going to the championships no matter what...

Chris ended up getting second place in Super PI... The benchmark is run in seconds, so the lower the score the faster the system.

Who did Gomeler finish behind and by how much?
I know who the famous Fugger is, Vapor not so much!
Second place, what does that mean for Gomeler?

Hey guys. For SPi 8M I managed a score of 1:32.178 which was good for 2nd place but I forgot the screenshot so it was disqualified after the event and I ended up in 3rd for SPi 8M. I was furious but what can I do :evil: After that it went downhill, for 3D06 my system just wouldn't run stable. Stock was fine but past 4GHz and it would lock up. For comparison I was benching 5GHz for SPi 8M, so I think I had some bad condensation forming.

I had a lot of fun, ended up 5th overall, I'm happy with the winners, and I look forward to the final in Taipei. Each year I compete much better, last year I was 7th/12, this year 5th/14, next year 3rd/16 maybe?

Now that this is finished and school finishes up next week I'll be back to writing some reviews, can't wait as I have a hardware wishlist that forms most of Newegg 8)

Thanks guys. I had a blast out there this year and Gigabyte has continued to improve how they run this event. I've got a stack of suggestions for them to digest for next year and I hope I get invited out again. Hopefully next year I'll crack top 3 :supz:
