    Well.....not an oc challenge per se.......but here goes:
    Since Win8 Release preview Came out,am sure everybody got a test of it..so how good is it for us..overclockers?
    let find it... shall we?
    Rules are simple...
    1.Keep at stock speed...
    2.run once in Windows seven..no tweaks..and then run in Win 8.
    lo suficientemente claro?

    lets see if we get some more performance out of this new OS.

    list of benches..
    SuperPi 1M and 32M
    Wprime 1.55 32M and 1024M
    Pifast
    PCMark 2004
    PCMark 2005
    PCMark Vantage
    UCBench 2011
    3DMark2001 SE

    3DMark06
    Aquamark

    I have no issue as well. Just make sure those on the other forums have no issue with it as well.

    hmmm its a nice idea but 90% guys don't have win8 or are not interested in it because its not meant for all this, its a bad bad os :p
    moreover my bandwidth is so low that i can't even think of downloading it now !

    Hehe. I think this is a great initiative, but to be honest, I did not like windows 8 so much. How it favors clockers is a different story altogether ( I am guessing it should be better, since its optimized for various platforms ).

    I have a windows 8 test install on one of my laptops at home, and after installing, I never went back to it, lol.

    Ill have to do a custom install on my rig to bench this, however scores from a lowly E8400 wont really interest anyone.

    Will do this on Sunday if I absolutely get time, since this is atleast a 10 hr + session.

    hahah sure my predictions beg to differ, this os is multi platform, with x86-64 and arm support so probably it won't be as good as win 7 for benchers.
    moreover its a tab os as i like to call it, definitely not suited to hardcore desktop users and gamers.

    still could be interesting to see my prediction being turned around. :p

    why not simply ask to join the forum and post it as a raider once we go Live!. It won't take much time right?.
