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.

^^Phenom II turbo is a dupe. Plus it won't do 4ghz +, max they can do is 3.7g when 3 cores are loaded Phenom II - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

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


Hello peeps!... Its been long since I played around with my system. I am a relative noob when it comes to OCing...so with the basic windows tweaks, here are my scores-

Pi - 2m 48.636s
Hex- 26.46 s

@kris - You have a really good super pi score mate, despite me having higher memory clocks, I am unable to come close to the 2m44s range, what other tweaks did you use? did you use the waza copy tweak?

Other OCing veterans, please guide us with how we can better our scores.

Great contest, keep it Erodov.

Basically much higher fsb and also overall speed is higher in case of kris. Try for higher fsb and lower multiplier and copy waza ofcourse. Should yield you better results.

thanks guys, will definitely try it.

As for the background, I am unable to change it, probably cause its disabled for the performance setting?

Thats why the full model number is needed, without which it becomes difficult to tell which family of processors it will fall in.....
