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

I believe you can manipulate the VID pads to give more Vcore to the CPU. But does it need more for 3.6 Ghz?

@thebanik please update the leader board.
As rajan, kiki & jasku have entries not as per the rules guess C2D has rank 2 booked for me 15sec away from no.1 .
& wingzoro has entries above 4ghz so no.2 is booked for me there as well. Too bad you can only win one pi-rize.

Well I'm not sure if I do need more vcore, but the system freezes at 330fsb, could be the ram though. Iassumed it might be cos of vcore as one of the ss shows vcore @ 1.59v in the same/c2d CPU.

I was cleaning up some stuff in the rig, but not sure what i did wrong and i think i may of bent some pins or something happened in the socket

The board is kinda old so no warranty anymore, but I already have a 780i dropped off my house, my water rig is up and running atm so we'll see how that works.....

I am simi alright with overclocking 775 core 2s
