    The good folks over at BleedinEdge have a nice little contest on the go for overclocking.

    The contest will not be one that can only be won by the latest and the greatest, but rather how well you can overclock your system. There are lots of fabulous prizes and everyone should take a look!

    Dry ice on a old pentium can give over a 100% increase.

    No it's not to late... I talked to Harleybro who is one of the judges and they are or will accept late baseline scores .... easy as running SuperPi ... :toast: But you'd better hurry !

    Heh, no use even trying. One read trough xtremesystems forums and everyone with air/watercooling is out of the game. I can only go for something like 3,3Ghz and some have gone 4,5Ghz on a e4300..

    Now if this would have Air/Water/extreme cooling categories, it would be more interesting. Would swap my 3700+ San Diego back on and go for 3Ghz on air :) (and still be only like 100th or something..)

    It's not an all out oc contest .. read the rules... "You will receive 1 ballot for every 2 second improvement on your time over your baseline score (rounded up)" ... so all your ballots go in the box for the drawings ... kind of simple actually, anyone can win.... so don't count yourself out

    Where can I look for dry-ice? (I know the contest is over but I'm asking just for personal use) Once you have the dry-ice, how do you use it? I've searched the web but found nothing useful. Thanks for any information.
