AOOC 2013 Test Disciplines and Configurations
The overclockers' day of AOOC 2013 will consist of two parts: 2D and 3D. The overclockers will be able to choose one of two 2D benchmarks: maximum CPU frequency overclocking (CPU-Z) or minimum time in Super Pi 32M (at a fixed clock rate of 5500 MHz). In the 3D event, 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme is obligatory for all participants but then they can choose between 3DMark03 and 3DMark11 Performance. Three results will contribute to the final score:
To reach maximum results every team will be provided top-end components from ASUS, Corsair and Intel. The setup will be based on the ASUS Maximus VI Extreme motherboard, which has proved its overclocking worth, by numerous world records. Corsair will provide 2800 MHz Corsair Vengeance Pro memory kits that are known to be able to work at frequencies above 4 GHz.

Each team will earn points for its results. The team to have the highest overall score will become the new ASUS Open Overclocking Cup champion. Besides the honors, each participating team will be awarded two ASUS Maximus VI Extreme mainboards and two ASUS GTX 780 DirectCU II graphics cards whereas the top 3 teams will compete for a prize fund of $5000 and will be additionally awarded with an Intel Core i7-4770K and a Corsair Vengeance Pro 2800MHz memory kit. ASUS Open Overclocking Cup 2013 will be refereed by the world-famous overclockers Semjons "TaPaKaH" Avdejevs and Petri "SF3D" Korhonen.

I only know about ketchup and not mayonaise. Will try it, hope to gain 20-30 MHz against GC Extreme :D

This post is twice as funny now that RCoon posted the graph and mayonnaise tied with GC Extreme! Mayo didn't quite match some of the more popular pastes such as Arctic Silver 5 but it's amazing that it matched stuff like AC MX-4 and GC Extreme. I wonder how it performs after some time has passed. It's clear that the toothpaste dried after a while and wasn't as effective. Maybe mayo doesn't dry up because it's oil-based?

Will have to test many different brands. Hope to find a good cheap OEM mayo for the competition :P
