    I overclock cpu's since the coming out Intel 200MMX but I never really got into the benchmark softwares. I just learned overclocking many years ago to boost power without having to change computer parts and save money like that. I am far from programming and stuff like that :)

    On the competition page at Hwbot, once the competition starts, youll be able to submit scores.

    keep this link: http://hwbot.org/competition/tpu_comps

    and keep an eye on when the competition starts, btw its for around 7 weeks in total!

    Ok so I will manually enter scores there in a list if i understand? Only one submission for me the one i posted is maxed out and i cant go further without a crash.

    I see nit but since I own an AMD the auto-detect XTU software doesnt work for me. I will need to manually entry all specs as much as I can since I'm new to this thing. at least it makes a good practice. :p

    Yup that could be that! Whoever will win can make good use of that as htpc or other use. Me it would be as main rig and give my current rig to my little cousin who need it for school.

    Would an Zalman 20LQ be accepted? It's basically the same form factor and everything.

    any intel/amd cpu and stock/air/water coolng is accepted.

    just remember frequencies are capped so that people can compete with X cooling.

    I think I'm going to try: 3DMARK 01 COMPETITION and 5ghz. I can get my CPu to 5ghz with 1.42v but with no HT, I could push it more just for the run. xD

    By capped, you mean it can't be 4500.8mhz, right? Must be 4500.0mhz or tiny less?

    So win8 is disabled because it caused some timing mismatch @ 125mhz blck? Well I saw it wasnt affected at normal 100mhz. :)

    Is win 8.1 excluded too?

    Hey man it's a pain in the ass to submit scores! Firs of all the "Benchmark score" we dont receive any with SuperPi32m then after my Athlon X2 64 4600+ is not even listed whatever the way i write it so i cant post except i chosed 5000+ instead. It's really annoying for someone who starts using it and don't make me feel i would start again all the process.


    http://hwbot.org/submission/2444816_junkbear_cpu_frequency_athlon_x2_5000_2580_mhz?recalculate=true


    Thats what it gives but the page is broken in Java somewhere. I tried to enter my submission and it wont until you remove the oc speed in the overclock square they put there. Also the top score is fake because i got none in SuperPi32m so i just entered the cpu sped there.

    johan has me beat by a few seconds, this comp is capped to 5ghz on the superpi and 4.5ghz on the 3dmark benches. its all about the tweaking! but as the FSB fluctuates it will never be exact, so .5 etc is ok

    (4500.5 or 5000.5 is max, anymore and it wont be counted)


    I know that their site is buggy, I always press the compatibility button on IE, its not the best of coding but it works majority of the time.

    anyone that tries, just have some patience.

    the comp isn't for another 14 hours tho
