August 2016 TC category winners

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So ends a very hot Team Competition for August 2016 – Yeah for a cooler September.
There were two changes for the category top spot, so here we go.
Let’s say congrats to the category winners for this month.

@irda123 of The PPD Police on winning I7 (1,690,669 points). Excellent folding thumb.gif
@giganews35 of Still in Beta on winning GPU-O (22,663,328 points), way to go thumb.gif
@4thKor TBBT on winning GPU-L and beating his last month’s score (16,718,576 points), dominating gunner2.gif
@QuietGamer of The PPD Police on winning Nvidia and breaking through 8 million points barrier (8,013,481 points) – Again, dominating sonic.gif
@tictoc of Infinity on dominating the AMD once again (10,160,511 points) - nice sonic.gif
And a new name to the winning circle with @Rayce185 of Still in Beta on winning GPU-Wild (4,270,061 points). applaud.gif




Last months were questions answered:-


How will tictoc’s mighty 290 fare now that that some big AMD GPU’s are allowed into the AMD category? – Well his 290 is still the mightiest AMD GPU by far
Will the Maxwell ‘Big Boys’ roll over and yield to the new Pascal new GPU’s on the block? Nope, they still dominated, but @1337LutZ got pretty close with a 1070 with a 4th place finish.
Will 1337LutZ GTX 1070 take down @Panther Al 1080 – YES, and by a considerable margin – I am guessing Panther had heat and stability issues
Will the 390X of @DarthBaggins beat out the 290X of @superericla? NO, not sure why not, both these folders know how to get the most out of a GPU, but superericla wins the bout this month.
Can @scgeek12 come back into TC and pick up where he left off? NO, in fact he left GPU-O. So sad, but he does remain in I7 with a 6700, so lets see how that does thumb.gif
Can @RushiMP Titan X make it into the top 3 this month? No, alas this was not the case – 5th place , not bad.
Will @Simmons572 sign up @hertz9753 early warning Hertzalert system, because we all know it Hertzalot when your GPU crashes tongue.gif – YUP, but it does not help as you will require 100% stability to take on that MIGHTY 290 of tictoc.


Questions for September:

Will Rayce185 continue his winning ways? going to be hard with 4thkor rocking that 950 again biggrin.gif
Will Darthbaggins get his 390X folding stable and into the top 4 of the cat? - come on Mr Baggins!.
Will Panther Al get the most out of the 1080 place in the top 5?
Will @IXcrispyXI win the battle of the 970’s in GPU-L and also take down Hertz9753 980 in the process?


And now for September, with cooler temperatures, we should see a little more stability.


Can we really end on that note:
The main question on everyone’s mind – Will The PPD Police recover from the shocking defeat in August and take back the #1 spot from The Big Bang Theorists in September……..Or will Still in Beta sneak in for the win?


OK TC folders - Let's do this thumb.gif

Can I post the pug singing Bat Man again? tongue.gif

I have wondered about why @Panther Al wants the best card for his category but it looks like he folds it stock. Maybe we should give him some tips. smile.gif

Not so much that at the moment: the last card I ran was a lemon, and until I get this back in a proper case - running everything in a S8 case I have spare with everything laying about as I can't be bothered to do it proper for just a few weeks (My BH2 will be here Tuesday), and don't want to fail everything in till I am good to go.

But yeah.. once it is, all for help in getting the most out of it, considering it will be on air for the foreseeable future.
