    Are we allowed to use any driver version or do we have to stick to the approved FM drivers?

    For now use any driver version that you wish.

    However if we receive any information about driver related dodginess you may be required to re-run!

    Hi guys,

    So i had a chance to go through all the submissions more thoroughly this morning and unfortunately I had to invalidate the following submissions:

    1. Generik @ CG = 26583 http://3dmark.com/3dmv/3043900
    2. Smuffy @ OCAU = 23146 http://3dmark.com/3dmv/3042645

    It's mostly our fault since we didn't make the following things clearer but you must have all of the following in your screenshot:
    3dmark score
    CPU-Z showing CPU and Memory tabs
    GPU-Z showing GPU clocks in your screenshot

    Please visit the following site for an example of a valid screenshot:
    http://www.hwbot.org/rankings/benchmark/3dmark_vantage_-_performance/rules


    You must also use a registered version of 3DMark Vantage, you can use a free version if you want however you will need to submit a video of you doing the benchmark for proof.

    Non FM approved drivers are allowed but they must NOT be modded in any way to improve your 3D score.

    Also any future submissions must use the following image as your wallpaper:

    I apologise that we didn't make things clearer but we will be extending the competition for an extra week to hopefully make up for any inconvenience caused.

    they may already be aware of it, as many are on here (do note dinos22s post), but perhaps posting up at i4memory forums would be a good idea.
    most of the hwbot aussie top 20 are on there, including team.au members

    as it is atm, theres only 2 "OCAU" guys in hwbot aussie top 20.. sadly, im one of them and i know i wont have a chance here lol
    dunno about cybergamers

    anyway, as i know when they get wind of this we wont stand a chance;
    are there by chance runner up prizes?! :p
