The Team Cup is back! As announced in the report of the last edition of the Country Cup, from February 1 until May 1 HWBOT is hosting the second edition of the Team Cup. In case you don't remember, the last edition was won by Overclock.net, so they are obviously the big favorites for this edition as well. The main theme of the Team Cup 2013 revolves around high-end performance since the beginning of this millennium. We took the most high-end components available at every second year, starting from 2000, and build a competition around it featuring the benchmarks SuperPi 1M, 3DMark03 and 3DMark Vantage.
The competition format is a little bit different than last year. We have reduced the amount of sub-competitions and stages, but slightly increased the hardware complexity. Even more than last year, it's quite likely you will have to poke your active and inactive community members to help out or even recruit new members! Also, the focus lies with older hardware and not so much the new gear. New this year is also the "Live Performance" stage which is designed as incentive to go out and promote your overclocking team and its activities in the outside world.
For this competition, we're teaming up with new HWBOT partner Cooler Master for the prizes. Both Cooler Master and HWBOT wish all the participating teams the best of luck!
