MSI Afterburner Overclocking Competition coming up - GPU overclocking.


MSI will launch a worldwide “pure VGA overclocking competition” from 2009/11/18 to 2009/12/18. It will be only for MSI N9000/N200/R4000/R5000 graphics card + afterburner, so almost every MSI customer can join this event.

This event is totally different from the other VGA competition. We don’t focus on “highest performance”, but this time we focus on the “highest overclocking percentage”. So winner may not use the best card like GTX 295 or HD 4870x2, but 9400GT or HD 4350 if they can squeeze the biggest overclocking capability from it….

If MSI would send me a card that would run for more than 5 minutes, I'd enter.:roll:

Third time's the charm?

No MSI card to partake for me, which is a pity because I love afterburner, and have gotten some sweet overclocks out of my current cards using it because the custom fan profiles are so easy to use and effective, not to mention voltage control.

I think the creator of RivaTuner helped MSI develop Afterburner, so that's probably where the goodness comes from. :)

Look familiar?
