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.

  • 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

@thebanik update the ledger board NAa...
That will help us understand the idea of the two scores added for the big prize & the indivisual scores for the power pack.

Yeah, turn off like 4 cores (will help to have low temp and less stress for power design), and don't be scared to raise the voltage up to 1.5v (1.4 will be fine imo).

^ i thought we are considering the clock speed as displayed by cpu-z. Real temp shows clock speeds which are funny. But anyway I will submit once more but please clear it out which info are we considering cpu-z or real temp cause core temp shows a different clock speed to real temp too.

Though yes CPUz but realtemp clocks does show that your clocks were jumping higher than 4.0 Ghz which is not acceptable according to the rules.
