Erodov Overclocking Contest 2011 - Sponsored By Coolermaster and MSI


Overclocking computers is a fascinating science, art and hobby. We have a lot of overclocking enthusiasts here on the Erodov forums so we are pleased to bring to you the the Erodov.com Overclocking Contest 2011 in collaboration with Choiix and MSI.

We will be having five contest categories and a total of twelve prizes. The categories are divided by the types of processors being used. Your processor can be overclocked to only the maximum specified clock speed for each category. The rest of the gains are expected to come from operating system optimisations.




The categories for the contest are as follows:

1. i7/i5/i3 2nd Generation (Eg. 2600K, 2500K, 2400, 2300) - The clock limit on these CPU's should not to exceed 4000MHz or 4GHz. This means 4000.1MHz is over the clock limit and not allowed. Do not allow your CPU clocks to exceed this limit at any point during the running of these benches.

2. i7/i5/i3 (Eg. 980X, 950, 920, 860, 661) - The clock limit on these CPU's should not to exceed 4000MHz or 4GHz. This means 4000.1MHz is over the clock limit and not allowed. Do not allow your CPU clocks to exceed this limit at any point during the running of these benches.

3. Bulldozer/Llano/Phenom II/Athlon II series CPU - The clock limit on these CPU's should not to exceed 3600 MHz or 3.6GHz. This means 3600.1MHz is over the clock limit and not allowed. Do not allow your cpu clocks to exceed this limit at any point during the running of these benches.

4. Intel Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Quad CPU's - - The clock limit on these CPU's should not to exceed 3600 MHz or 3.6GHz. This means 3600.1MHz is over the clock limit and not allowed. Do not allow your cpu clocks to exceed this limit at any point during the running of these benches.

5. Legacy (e.g. Phenom/Athlon/P4)/ Best Effort - The clock limit on these CPU's should not to exceed 3200 MHz or 3.2GHz. This means 3200.1MHz is over the clock limit and not allowed. Non-categorized winners will be decided on best effort/efficiency basis.



The Prizes For The Contest Will Be



Ten Choiix Power Fort 10Whrs Rechargeable Power Backup Battery Packs
The top two winners in each category will get one Battery pack each. More details of the power pack can be had from here

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In addition the top winner of the i7/i5/i3 2nd Generation category will get



One MSI P67A-GD65 Motherboard


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Also the top winner of the Bulldozer/Phenom II/Athlon II series CPU category will get



One MSI 890FX-GD70 Motherboard

Please note that these mainboards have been used as review samples but are fully functional with warranty.



The rules are of the contest are as follows:

  • The contest is open for to all members from 16th October 2011 to Wednesday, 30th November 2011. If you are not already an registered member, you must first register as a member on Erodov.com. Registration is free and can be done here.

  • You can submit multiple results in the contest. Only your best run will be considered as the contest entry.
  • To submit your results you must post a image screenshots of the SuperPi 8 million run and the Pifast run along with the current CPUZ CPU, Memory, Mainboard tabs and temperatures showing in Real Temp or Core Temp in this thread. The results will be updated in the second post of this thread. The images can be in JPEG, GIF or PNG format. Here are examples of a ideal screenshots :-
oc_comp.jpg oc_comp1.jpg
Example Superpi 8m and Hexus Pifast run screenshots

And can somebody who has 2 setups at home articipate in two catagory's?
And only the best will count ?

Like i have X5550 and 2600K computer.

EDIT :



Ok got it.

Re: Erodov Overclocking Contest 2011 - Sponsored By Coolermaster and MSI


ok guys....found a few new settings in my board which makes me touch 450 FSB, but its very unstable...Tried a lot and managed 2 runs, but both were SIGNIFICANTLY slower than that at 400MHz...the difference is that at 400, i had 6-5-4-12 timings...and at 450 it was 6-6-6-18 (anything lower was completely unstable)...

also, I increased the FSB voltage by 0.3v, is it safe??

@Darkstar : Dude I cant overclock my A8 3850 by even 1MHz, what am I doing wrong? I am using DVI port for video out..HDD running in IDE mode..
also, the BIOS settings are very different from what I have used....so so many voltages...what all should I touch and what all is not required? Whats the NB multi? Please link to a nice guide...

i don't understand why you all get such effiency???

I did all the pi tweaks, regedit systemcache tweaks, maxmem, copy wazza you name it, and did run all evening on fresh install xp performance pi, and don't get that effiency !!!

Even with 1.52 Bclock i didn't get it, even with better memory CPU-Z Validator 3.1

even @ 4030Mhz cpu with 106+ Bclock still i didn't get you're time or even close : CPU-Z Validator 3.1

Here's my best time for now on 2600K

Superpi8m : 1m42.859sec
Pifast : 18.31 sec

total 2m1.169sec

Yup, this time around its not even a Mhz above 4Ghz and I will add your score to the leaderboard, and I must congratulate you for the awesome efficiency but I would require a video of your superpi and pifast run with a CPUz window constantly open.

Infact on second thought that pifast score is way out of line for the clocks.......
