    2nd place.. after some hours of benchmarking. We had issues with s2e and FSB kept lowering back to 400 MHz no matter what we tried. In the end we downgraded the BIOS to older and managed to get the CPU up to 5740 MHz but ran out of time because prize ceremony was about to start.

    Anyway, good attempt with with great guys!

    Nice scores nontheless! Benching with a limited amount of time is always kind of a hassle =/

    1. The first rule of Bench Club is, you do not talk about Bench Club
    2. The second rule of Bench Club is, you do not talk about Bench Club
    3. If someone says stop, goes limp, taps out, the the benching is over
    4. No bummers in the batcave, apart from unkie dave
    5. One Bench at a time
    6. No air, no water
    7. Benching will go on as long as they have to
    8. If this is your first night at Bench Club, you have to Bench
