    The contest includes two benchmarks: CPU-Z and 3DMark11. The scores will be reviewed on a weekly basis and the highest scores will be the week's winner. The participant who submits the highest score within these four weeks will be the final champion for each group respectively.

    ASRock's latest FM2+ series motherboards are based on AMD's most high end A88X chipset, and the socket will support both FM2+ and FM2 APUs.

    Although the new FM2+ "Kaveri" APUs will not be available until next year, AMD fans can still get the latest ASRock FM2+ motherboards that also support FM2 APUs first right now, and then wait for the upcoming FM2+ APUs. Moreover, the easy single click overclocking technology X-Boost will also be implemented on this motherboard, so that users may receive an extra 15.77% performance boost! With the FM2+ series motherboards, participants can enjoy the OC competition challenge and get the exclusive opportunity to break world records!

    It helps sell mobos and APUs so it's all good fun IMO. People get to see that AMD's APUs as well as their CPUs OC very nicely and more importantly they scale well with the OC.
