Sponsored = benching hardware that is not always my own
or
sponsored = being paid and expected of getting good results?

AFAIK it doesn't have anything to do with being sponsored or not.
Vince mentioned something about a new HWbot team almost a year ago in a PM, and as far as I can tell this is it.

Sponsors are welcomed anytime... :)
They give you some kind of "breath" when you need it some times, they don't give you World Records - YOU make the WRs.... ;)

I - for example - have paid SO MUCH hardware out of my pocket that you can't even imagine.
There were times in the past (and yes I'm ashamed to confess it) that I didn't have to buy food to eat or cigarettes to smoke, ONLY because I have spent my money to buy a CPU/VGA/etc... :(
It's like drugs or gambling... :(

So let k|ngp|n alone to move on with his life/dreams and you all keep on benching... :)

I dont disagree that there is pressure or that I wish I was sponsored. I for one enjoy not having to post "look how great my gigabyte board is" or take binned memory and show "you too can break the ddr3 world record" threads.

So how much money do I have to spend before I get free stuff or paid? How is it a level playing field if anyone is getting any help from any source other than their own pockets? This brings up ES chips as well, on HWbot you have to own the hardware and people posting with ES chips are breaking the rules as intel/AMD are the owners of those chips. This also why they cant be sold legally.

Half the people that have hammered me in this thread have in the past or currently get free stuff etc :rofl:

Exactly, hence I don't bench anymore. HWbot bend's the rules when it's favorable to them. It's a paid/sponsored sport now. It generates revenue. I still have fun benching for myself, but I have lost all interest in HWbot and Futuremark rankings. I don't even compete in the threads anymore. But I'm still having my fun.:D

07-16-2009, 06:07 AM
Bobby, a wise man told me "It's not who you know, it's who you blow". Now that doesn't mean that people have to start blowing other people for hardware, but greased palms are greased palms.

As for the KP starting his own bot team....can't blame him. His nick name is attached to a product and is a product, and working the bot under XS didn't get his name out there. If anything KP is learning to be aggressive in marketing and that's what needs to be done to be successful as a company and as a product.

To the sponsored lads harping on Bobby for his frustrations; think what it would have been like if you were 100% self funded in these economic times, being forced to compete against the guys who get the good stuff on a silver platter. Take a look at this guys bot progress (under splave for Team NBOC), he's the real deal and his point has merit.

Cheers and all the best to KP and XS.

It isn't a matter of spending XXX amount of dollars in order to receive YYY amount of free stuff.. it is about spending enormous amounts of time developing a brand out of your own pocket. Then you move on to the PR departments and hope that all your work is enough for them to warrant chucking a board or video card your way.

I am a college student who makes several hundreds of dollars a month at most. In order to afford my hobby I review hardware on the side making what is the equivalent to less than minimum wage in order to be able to play with nice toys. After dumping in all this time you damn well know I'll be knocking out some hwbot points with a combination of earned and seeded gear in an attempt to acquire more seeded gear. Competitive benching is a business, the moment you realize that doors start to open.

Splave
07-16-2009, 06:22 AM
I hear ya gomeler, just saying if you enjoy messing with hardware, is getting paid minimum wage to play with it a bad thing as you go to school? Hell if I could get paid to get lap dances at 7.50 and hour I would for sure be down for that, on the side that is ;)

king is obviously smart for starting his own team as reverend stated, gets his name and product out there.

Its like a guy that likes to squeeze the last drop of horsepower out of his car racing a nascar. I get that the nascar guy probably started as a little known guy spending all his cash and using skillz to become what he is now but he certainly isnt going to be racing against a nascar guy with his little pinto from the beginning rofl.

No need to argue about sponsors, we all welcome any support we can get.

For sure. Xs is still my number one place, how can it not be..


There is no special reason for this nor does it have anything to do with XS. If I disapointed or let any XS guys down, I'm really sorry for that. I've benched as hard as I could and made HUGE personal sacrifices over last two-three years of my life benching for XS and just benching in general. I have been wanting to form my own COMPETITIVE benching team for a long time now. The eventual goal is worldwide domination, but it may take some time to get there.

Right now the team isn't "open", and to be on it you need to be willing to dedicate time and effort into making the team succesful.
You dont have to be some super duper sponsored guy or a known name to be on the team at all, only have the PROVEN KNOWLEDGE, COMPETENCE, WORK ETHIC and the DRIVE to be able to get it done. I am willing to try and help guys out with cooling HW and other misc. pieces of HW through manuf I work with that need it

As for the sponsored thing that comes up often, yah I have good manuf connections, but I have worked so HARD for so long for those hookups guys. Again, I have made huge personal sacrifices in my life for overclocking that I may or may not regret one day when I look back on all of this :shakes:
The pressure and stress that comes with the territory has been at times nearly unbearable. People expect things out of you at one point, and any less is just not enough. This goes for any of the guys with "hookups".When manuf gives you a new platform or product, they expect you to not only make it work but set records with it. Any less is failure. Doesn't matter if the bios's suck, components are incompatible, hw needs 100 mods to run right, or the competitors product is flat out better. You have to find a way to make it happen PERIOD or it is failure. It's alot to deal with I'm tellin ya.
I am a big sponsor now as well though..ya know I have given out more $$$ in containers and also spent more money on LN2 developing units and benching than maybe 95% of every overclocker out there has ever spent on HW alone.
There is major ebb & flow that most don't see.

No doubt that King made a wise business decision starting his own team.

I think what Splave is saying, and I totally agree with, if the racing circuit is goin to be like nascar, those teams are required to use similar equipment. This way, the driver's skill makes all the difference in winning. Our racing teams don't even have access to these products to increase our point standings in nascar to race in the final field of cars, even if we were willing to spend the money.

The same argument holds true for the guys destroying wprime with the servers where they work, wth? Once again, do they own these components?

Maybe majors and minors or pro and novice for the bot?

In an overclocking community that has opened up and broken down so many traditional world barriers and territorial lines to come together, it only makes sense to think as one global community and reset the cosmos. :ROTF:

On the other hand "I'm proud to be an American" and represent the Red White and Blue Region. But I think this can be done with individual user flags whilst the team flag is non-discriminate or alienating to a multi-national team.

Frankly, hwbot does an excellent job catering to the "little" guy by offering the huge amount hardware categories that pretty much anyone can get points in. Just look at the #4 US Team, ClassicPlatforms. They get all of their points from old hardware. Stuff you can buy off ebay or craigslist for pocket change. The only way you could do better for the little guys is to remove the 300 hardware point cap. It's just a fact of life, the guy with the connections and the cash is going to have a leg up; that's the way it is in every aspect of life.

I get that as well, but when i call something sponsorship is when you paid less then retail or nothing for it.

That is what sponsorship means... they help you in acquiring it. Not wait in line holding your hand.

People come and go from hwbot teams all the time. It's unfortunate to lose some high profile members but I wish them all the best. As to massman's comment, I hope you don't forget XS still has a team and I look at this as an opportunity for those remaining to step up and remind everyone we are still here. :D

Not like I've left XtremeSystems, XS has always and still is my home forum. The problem is there isn't much of a benching team here at XS, just a group of guys who bench under the same name. Benching with the group that Vince has collected under his name will help propel me forward and encourage me to push hardware with in-team challenges. Now I've got people to catch, it was hard on XS due to the fact that Vince was the next person ahead of me with a lofty 1000 points in between us x_x Now I've got a handful of guys to catch and this should make me much happier :) Now I'd say it is time for all the guys below where I was sitting to step up their game and start bashing some records :up:
