Don't insult what you don't understand. Until you can pour LN2 across six different pots and keep each of them within 2-3Â°C of their CB temperature for max clocks, you don't have much position to say anyone could do it. This has very little do with money. Equipment is only some of the battle. Skill is the rest.
I can do what you did with practically anything... For instance, a man hits a target from the longest distance... Anyone could do that with the best rifle... Forget wind, humidity, coriolis effect... It's just money...
Or as mentioned above, cars... I could win the Indy 500... all it takes is the best car. Being a good driver has nothing to do with it!

I felt a bit strange about the CPU-Test1 figure, but I can make the same
score again and again anytime.
I have posted the score under the same status before on the web, and nobody
ever suspected or pointed it out back then.
However, I discussed with the people engaged in SR-2 designing whom I trust,
and I found I was wrong about it.
It turned out to be a possible bug, and it was a impossible score under the
Therefore this score should not be recognized as the record and I believe
the record must be recognized by a third party. :yepp:
But I will not give up and will try again soon. :up:
By the way, this is the second best score I set during the try.
