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.
  • The benchmarks used for the contest will be SuperPi 8 million run using Super PI Mod v1.5 and Hexus Pifast Run. Only results form Super PI Mod v1.5 will be considered and no other version is allowed. You can download it from here. Hexus Pifast can be downloaded from here.
  • You can participate in multiple categories but you are allowed to win only one prize in the contest.
  • 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
  • You must post separate screenshots of both Superpi and Pifast runs. Every participants best score from each bench will be combined for a total time. The lowest combined time overall will be the winner.
  • You must use the official contest desktop wallpaper set in "tile" mode for the contest entries. You can download the wallpaper here. Everything must be plainly visible with no vital information blocked for your result to count.
  • You may use any CPU, RAM and Graphic Card combination on a single socket motherboard you would like.
  • ONLY Air or Ambient Cooled Water are to be used anywhere on your setup for the contest benchmarks. Use of cryogenic coolants and dry ice is prohibited.
  • The winners are expected to disclose the tweaks they used to arrive at their scores at the end of competition so all can benefit from their knowledge.
  • Decisions of the contest judges are final. Any form of cheating can be easily spotted, and strict action will be taken against the members.
  • The prizes are not redeemable in cash and must be accepted as awarded.
  • The prizes will be shipped to people residing in India only. Winners from other countries will have to bear any additional shipping and tax costs.

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


do not go over 1.42v vcore and 1.3(preferably 1.28v) cpunb on any msi board.. their vrm's are the worst in any motherboard class They will fail or worse still blow up!!

the max cpunb for any amd phenom processor is 1.3v.. excluding x6 where it is lower..

also 955 is a BE processor. use multiplier for oc'ing.. dont change FSB.. keep it at default and oc on stock voltage.. it can easily pull 3.5 at 1.35-1.38v

a simple step by step for you

The efficiency of thebanik is also good, but think he need to use a good 2D OS.
Your efficiency is good with you're mem

Also, any tips on how many cores are optimal? I have disabled HT and only enabled 2 cores. But the other scores on this thread seem to be done with HT and all cores on!
Yes number of cores and witch cores you select for affinity are also important.
There are many superpi tweaks and you really need to use them ALL, to maximize you efficiency,
and offcourse trial and error.
Needed 2 day in a row and several fresh installs to get this one, but you see it's possible,
and much better as my and thebanik score it will not get, we pressed everything and all tweaks, because thebanik knows them also,
but you guys really need better memory.

The best thing should be my mem (the mem i have) but then 8Gb, then you can beat my score eassy.
superpi likes 8Gb system mem.

---------- Post added at 12:08 AM ---------- Previous post was at 12:05 AM ----------

hehehehe, so finally took your word, and tried optimizing, would need much more effort to get to Chiller's time, but here are the scores I got,

Superpi : 1m43.546s
Pifast : 18.42s
2m01.966s
Damn nice scores there, but you're short on mem.
Don't touch my scores thebanik, or i need to put you over my knee and slap you're but hahahahahahahahaha
Because now i'm getting scared that you beat my score lol

Yup, I need a 4GB kit which can do similar timings. Though I dont think 8GB will help much.......

Ah, you were keeping tab, I thought you are not looking, and I will sneak and beat your score, and keep the prizes for myself,

Now that u mentioned it... the VRM & Chokes near the top of the motherboard were a bit hot to touch @ 1.35v.
Thanks @mrcool63 for the heads up.

I guess that's the max limit for me .
Lemme c if i can play around with ram timings and Os tweaks to get a better score.

TBH, I do not even remember volts for P55....For CPU it should be more of temps, rather than volts. Till 70C its fine IMO, with a good cooler that would be around 1.4-1.45V but again for 4Ghz, you certainly need not bump that.......Also AFAIR, for IMC/vtt, your mobo should be able to handle till 1.3V. DRAM depending upon the sticks 1.7-1.75V should be fine. PLL, I dont think you would need to increase more that 1.88-1.9V, again AFAIR, instead of increasing you can even try dropping it to around 1.56-1.6V. And PCH around 1.2V
