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

Third Run.. This was interesting, it was an unoptimized run (with many bg processes) but with one OS tweak implemented. Dint expect this much improvement, but here we are...

OCX Tweaker is a program that cleans all you're junk and temp files, and does a copy wazza to.
The other tweaks use google for it, to much to explain, are all superpi tweacks.

therefore even use ALL possible tweacks, i cannot get nr1 scores or get even close !!!!!
That is not normal !!

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


And as i stated before this is impossible to run :

i) Rakesh_sharma23: 1m56.814s
1m39.644
17.17s


Mem only at 800 cl9 , when i run mem at 1095 cl7, on Bclock 100, 102.* or at 105.*, even at Bclock 106 with mem @ 1100 cl7 cpu at 4150 i even don't get that score !!!!
Need to run almost 4200Mhz on cpu to get that with all tweacks on xp performance, win7 is even little slower.

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


need to be realistic, everybody will be as close to 4Ghz not above.
so the scores will be very close to, after the 0.*** sec times.

The only difference you will see is when somebody did tweaking or not.
Can give 1sec maybe 1.5sec profit, not 3 or 4sec, that's way to off.

And that i'm doing all possible tweacks, and have mega better mem as him, and even when i run cpu @ 4.2Ghz i don't get close to him, so that's why i'm saying, show video while running with cpuZ in screen, because what he's running is NOT POSSIBLE !!!

Proof is there but if I were the admin, I would ask for a camera recording of the screen and not a screencast.
