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

But the authencity of the run will be certified, as cheating is very easy my friend.
Such a thing is not to doubt the intigraty of the participant but when ppl having better ram/optimized systems; are not able to achieve such scores, its better to clarify.

A word of advice to every one making videos, listen to your Admin.

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


here is the video..... the best quality i can provide you guys with. dnt have any video camera, so recorded using my phone. And uploaded that file only without compressing it. There is nothing i can do more than that. If the admin still feels it inadequate, i would recommend to disqualify me then. :-(
In the video the results are:
superPI------> 03m.40.272s
PiFast ------> 28.35s

here is the link : Download VID_20111110_171413.mp4 from Sendspace.com - send big files the easy way

As some of you may know I have a lot of time to spare .
So I did a minor study of the OC contest 2001 & OC contest 2010.
I shows, how some people have learn't stuff in the past year but to my surprise it shows a majority of active members not participating.
WTF guys... I insist all of you come forward, Admin & mod's are NOT excused.

hehehehe, great work Man. Really sad to see that even with much better prizes this time around we are not seeing the kind of participation that we were expecting. This will only change the kind of competition we host at Erodov to Articles and FB Likes or something else other OC contests. Overclocking I guess is dying in India before it even got a chance to grow.

On the other hand we still have around 19 days to go and hopefully some of the members are readying up their rigs to participate.

But yeah, atleast the mods and admins should participate. And so should all other active members. Everyone here has a desktop, and we have categories for all types of processors.

Thanks Banik.. I have just recieved a new PSU from Corsair..
I am entering the competition, just let me setup my system on Sunday !!!!
It would have been better if I had a spare HDD so that I could have installed a strippeed down version of XP but what the heck !!!

I would surely have liked to participate but right now I dont have a half decent rig to be able to meaningfully participate in the contest. I therefore request that members excuse my not taking part.

I will however be providing full organisational and administrative support to the contest. I hope you will accept this limited contribution from my side.
