    That is what I'm talking about.

    One thing that I love about over clocking is that people of all ages can enjoy it.

    this should be one hell of an OC Competition, some of the best names in overclocking in that lineup!
    EDIT: frankly i'm a little surprised that Shamino isn't going to be there with Yama representing Asus.

    the only one I recognize is Kingpin. the others I'm not familair with. You really would expect Shamino to be included.

    Meh, he's obviously busy.

    HiCookie has been posting some good scores as of late with IVY and TridentX, so I am most interested to see what he does.

    What's concerning is that...it's not like a car motor where there's different schools of thought and engineering in deciding what parts to use with it and how to run them out down into the exhaust or drive train.
    This is a finite and very limited range of hardware(obviously the fastest and most current) given to a handful of guys whom will undoubtedly all end up with the same conclusion.

    How can there be any competition except maybe in measuring the amount of time it takes to reach an overclock objective?


    I managed to get over 5ghz on my chip on air. Because I got the 2600k early before it hit most store shelves, does that mean I was one of the first in the world. Am I professional overclocker?

    I will call myself "Fred the Young Pro, ate a Duck while riding a Dinos22 and watching Kingpin. My friend HiCookie was drawing anime in Hiwa when uncle Elmor took him home to Yama to see his brother Shamino, whom has now grown up and gotten a real job thanks to Newconroer"
