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

New best with Windows 7 + Wazza : x

SuperPi : 1.43.366

Hexus Pifast : 18.31





Still need to tweak sub timings to get better scores. Can someone please guide me here? Im running completely blind here.

Windows Xp + Wazza Scores soon, for some reason, a BSOD corrupted the fresh Windows XP installation :|
Didn't know XP was so "touchy"!

Another minor update

Super pi 8M : 2m 41.938s
Hexus pi-fast: 25.66s

Net score: 3m 07.598s

@vijayninel, i guess there should be some good prize for the c2d/c2q category as well. you have a mobo for the "Bulldozer/Phenom II/Athlon II" whose highest score till now is 4m07.401s, easily beaten by the c2d/c2q current winner with 3m07.655s

i think you should reconsider the prize, as its c2d/c2q is not negligible, its just few seconds behind the i-series of intel proccys

Well, we would have liked to have had unlimited prizes for a larger range of categories but unfortunately the prizes are limited for this time. We hope to have more prizes the next time around.

@Jasku, LOL price is not the main thing, its fun competing here.

I didn't had a nice proccy to compete here, so got a e8400 few days back.

Any it would be a shame to keep a e8400 idle, without playing with it , so gt some scores, and learnt lots of stuff

Cheers

@krashnburn ♥, how about your config as well.

@JD666 and @Jasku , thanks for your likes, but i am confused what they are for - my score or the post for decent prize

Though I understand you are not competing for prize Knb but still atleast a CPUz screenshot showing the CPU speed would have been appreciated. Without which cannot even put the score on the leaderboard,

If a judge has a doubt he will ask for more proof, regardless of whether it being a winning entry or not. And I do have some doubt about your score, , as Karan earlier said, consider it as a matter of pride, . I do not think shooting a few minutes of video would be a difficult task......

But yes it was not to have the score on the leader board. I remember Man and you had posted a list of people who participated last time but not this time. Just clear that when I have a decent top 3 score I will ensure that all the formalities are in place and I will get that score too.
