First place 3rd stage Hwbot “October rush”

This month Hwbot.org’s competition is called “October rush”, it consists in 7 or 8 stages each one lasting only three days.
Because of my last year or so in which I was close to completely inactive I don’t have anymore much hardware, one of the few things I still have is my socket 939 setup and a bunch of single core A64 CPUs.
The third stage of the competition was 3DMark 01 with the limitation of using a socket 939 CPU, which is exactly what I have.

.:. SETUP:
CPU: FX-55 Clawhammer cabrio @1.5*123% volt – CAA2C 0442GPMW
cooling: Single Stage 1.2 HP
MB: DFI nForce 4 Ultra-D – bios 623-2
RAM: Corsair PC3500C2 2×256 MB :: Winbond BH-5 – yellow slots
VGA: GTX 280 VGPU and CAPs mod
HDD: Maxtor DMAX 200 GB sata2
PSU: PCP&C 1200
OS: Windows XP sp3

The real issue of having a competition with such a tight schedule is that quite likely people will not have the time to pick up LN2.
Luckily looks like I wasn’t the only one affected by this issue, so at the end of the story the Single Stage was enough to take the lead and hold it for the whole competition.

Despite being 78 years old stuff, AMD socket 939 is still one of my favorite platform and I always enjoy playing with it.
