The chatter in the team capt' thread is split. Basically finding 20 more X6/2500k folders might be a challenge...what do you guys think?
Also this is the latest from Arvidab:
"I agree with what is said in that thread. You have to have a golden X6 to be able to get a 6904-OC and sustain it, I've only seen two of the TC X6ers being able to do it. elo and gboeds, elos was at 4.2 and I believe gboeds's @4 and he's really really close to deadline (something like 3h). I have had three different X6s of which only one were able to hit 4G and fast RAM 6904-stable and that was also really close to deadline and pushing a little to much voltage through it.
I've only had the one 2500K but it was a breeze clocking to 4.9 and not going crazy with voltage, I believe that 4.7-4.8 would be the absolute minimum for it to complete a 6904. And that shouldn't be hard to achieve on a majority of 2500Ks.
Looking at the X6/2500K cat for this month top six runs 2500K, then elo and gb X6s comes in as 7th and 8th. Though they are pretty close to no6 there's quite a jump up to 5th. I know that it also is down to luck of the draw with WUs, so you can't solely look at these numbers. But as an indication.
Personally I'm not a fan of artificially limit output, forbidding BA-12 in that cat, but I think it has worked out pretty good for the i7-2 slot. On one hand it would be better to split them up in two different cat and them it would come down to who could clock the highest and being the most consistent rather than who happen to have the preferred hardware. Butt then again variety in competition makes it more interesting. The biggest problem I see with splitting them up is to find enough people to fill all openings as Lutz points out, finding 20 more X6/2500K is a tall order.
Basically I'd rather see a split if all positions could be filled."
