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.

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



guys gimme tips...what more can i do?
things tried:
1)I have reached the lowest possible stable timings- have maxed the voltage (2.2v)
2) Tried diff FSB and mem timings, for some reason, 423x8.5 (1025MHz mem) is much slower than 400x9(960Mhz mem)
3)Does not post at 470MHz+ fsb
4)Does not boot into windows at 450 fsb.
5) Waza does not really help.
6) Fresh copy of XP used

1. Dont keep Cpuz and tmonitor open before shooting the video.
2. Start shooting the video, open the task monitor and show all the processes and programs running.
3. Open Cpuz and tmonitor.
4. Run Superpi/pifast.
Yeap, i have a video recorded with a pretty decent score following these guidelines. Will post it later tonight, as the mighty Wolverine has my Pen drive for further runs.

But the the usual way i run Superpi is : Run superpi and hexus and then later on start the other apps.( CPUZ/Coretemp/explorer , etc)

Can i have one or maybe 2 ?? I think i can really make this work here, with better memory sticks.

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


Remember, Waza is one of the those final end game tweaks which you do to extract those last few 100 ms from the setup. It implies that you have already applied all other tweaks 'effectively.'

Read the thread by Banik about tips for SuperPi... They are very much true and work effectively in reducing your score. But remember, these are tweaks. They cannot compensate for the lack of good hardware. But only make up a last few percent points.

Cant seem to improve my score so this is it from me.
Learn a LOT about Mem timings and Os optimization on the past 2-3 weeks... Thank u Erodov

Time to use what I've learnt and post some better scores on HWbot

or Maybe ill w8 for this

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


New best, this is using copy wazza and various windows tweaks - Maxmem/Paging tweaks/some tweaks in the BenchTecUK application.

Im trying to get a video up, but these are the problems i am facing :

1- If i run SuperPi and wazza alone, everything works fine. And i get scores close to this best one.
2- ASA i try and keep CPUz and Coretemp running along with Wazza for the video, i get a "NOT exact in round error"

This has happened around 7 times now.

Also without using Wazza and trying to record the video , following all the guidelines and as requested for, if i start all the required apps before SuperPi or PiFast, the final scores drop by around .5XX-.6XX . Which really is making the difference between standing first and standing 2nd or 3rd.
But when ever i run the benching app first and then start the required applications after the run is complete, the scores are pretty much outstanding.

Well for now, here is the best i could manage tonight :

SuperPi : 1.42.516
Pifast : 18.30

I did manage to score 18.28 again in PiFast, so haven't posted it. Since it the same a my previous score.

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


Please check the bclk.

Secondly just churned out slightly better scores with a slightly lowered bclk than I had been using....WITH VIDEO PROOF.

No, not better than the previous runs... better than your scores.

Common buddy stop being so paranoid and insecure.

You want video proof for the run I posted above? I have that too.
