HTPC/WHS ..... AMD 1090T, 16GB Ram @ 1600Mhz, with Win7 64Bit for HTPC with a GTX580 and SBS2011 VM with Dual Gigbit LAN for data xfer/streaming.
Wifewillcutmynutsoff Rig.... Asus C6H, Ryzen 1700x, 16GB-3200Mhz G-Skill, Asus Strix GTX1080Ti, EVGA SuperNova 1300W-PSU, CoolerMaster HAF-X 942 case, Custom Water Cooling, Asus 27" 165Hz 1440p gaming display.
This is going to be a fun one! Unlimited CPU choices and nearly unlimited HD5000 series GPU's, there are alot of options. The cool thing about Cinebench R15 divided by core is that all CPU's can compete but there is no huge advantage to the big HEDT CPU's. What I have seen, after looking at lots of hwbot submissions and doing some calculations, is that the calculated scores are close between 2, 4, and 6 core Intel CPU's. This offers a huge range for everyone to be competitive with.
I am so looking forward to this one

...No idea if I'll be able to participate with GPU stuff though, as that requires FINDING one of those cards first o_O
Awesome to see you pop in here and say hello, I really hope you can join us man!!
Dave will it be allowed to participate in both categories?
You cannot participate in both categories. You can change midway, but your scores will be only ambient or extreme. Many people started out in ambient, just to make sure they had legal submissions, then changed over to extreme later on.
