If you have a stick, try mismatching the gear speeds sometime. Shift quickly and without releasing the gas. The car will jerk. If you remove your foot from the gas it shifts fine, this is because your car is synchronized, a truck is not synchronized, the drivers have to manually do it's job. Give them some respect, it isn't as easy as you say it is.
As for drag racing? Even with a street car it is not that simple either. Learn to launch a car. It's hard. Even the best are inconsistent at time, and the method greatly varies depending on both the car and conditions. Two corvettes will not launch the same, just as how two processors aren't guaranteed to OC the same. You have to know how to do it and you have to actually be good at it. Prep work goes into a race too. You need to have the right tire pressures for optimal grip in the back with minimal friction in the front. Sound familiar? Prep work is an awful lot like prepping for a bench, you need to have enough knowledge and the right materials to get the job done. If you try to drag an auto you can just slam the gas and the car will do the best it can, but 99% of the time you will lose by quite a large margin. The car won't start off as fast and won't shift at the proper times to maximize acceleration. Do I physically drag race? No, but I did play Forza quite often in the past, and I frequently drag raced within the game. I tuned all of my vehicles myself and was pretty good at it with the cars I ran. I can tell you that even with my cars properly tuned, I had never won a race with automatic shifting while just holding down the gas. When I shifted manually and launched properly, I won 3/4 of all of my races. In a real drag race, no matter how perfect an auto transmission shifts(in terms of acceleration), it would still rarely win, as manual gearboxes are much lighter than automatic ones. It takes a lot of knowledge to prep a car and a lot of skill to drive one just right, where a regular race takes more luck(what cars people have, how they tune them, and how they drive are all factors that can affect you, and this is random).
I don't bench and have little interest in benching(because I can't afford it), but I respect the art. It's similar to drag racing, and sure, drag racing is just going in a straight line. But it's going in a straight line very fast. Benching is making a processor go very fast. It doesn't do much and it may not be at that speed for long, but a lot of work goes into that short burst of speed. There's a reason why nobody does 6+ ghz stable overclocks on LN2 or Liquid Helium. A processor honestly can't handle it. It's a short suicide run, similar to when people run top fuel dragsters on straight Nitrous and the engines pretty much destroy themselves.
Now you are free to return to regular discussion. I have offered my opinion on Benching and how it is similar to racing(and that both require a decent amount of skill) but you are still free to holds your own opinions.

drag racing is not closely comparable to the difficulty of gt racing, rally, or f1 though. There are just way more factors to take into consideration in those forms of racing

Sorry, I don't think we overclock cars in this forum..

And regarding that... I can guarantee you that if we took a sampling of 100 people here on OCN, gave each one of them $10K worth of motherboards, CPUs, RAM, PSUs, and all the "secrets" you speak off.... The chances of someone hitting 7GHz on one of the chips would be less than 1%... I'd be willing to bet money that not a single person gets past 6GHz... These guys that you saw on that video aren't just "PR chomps for Asus"... The skinny kid holding the LHe hose is a legend in his own right. If you have used any of the top tier EVGA motherboards in the past (X58 socket) and/or any of the high end Asus boards (Rampage, Maximus, etc).. You have him to thank for them. Same goes for the other guys; they're not just "Joe from the corner" brought in to move a mouse; they're all experts on their field; it just so happens that their field is probably computer/processor engineering.
As for people that buy their own hardware getting more respect than those getting it for free... Think of these guys as "major leaguers"... Once you make it to the "Show"; you're golden... But they too had to go through all the "bus rides and crappy motels" during their time in the minors. That's one thing people don't seem to realize. These guys didn't just show up last month; they've been at this for ten, fifteen years; they've put in the "grunt work" and are now enjoying the benefits.
Tell that to the guys running top fuel cars at the nearest drag strip and see how they react. Extreme overclocking is like top-fuel/funny car racing... There really is no practical use for a car that can go from 0 to 200 mph in 5 seconds and yet there are thousands of people that spend thousands of dollars on their rigs so that they can go out to the drag strip on weekends and see if their "tricked out" Civic SI can do the quarter mile in under 10s. We are the same kind of people; only difference is we like to "trick out" our PCs instead of our cars.

Of course not, but absence of obvious instabilities is easy enough to check for, and reasonable long term stability can be expected with the right kind of stability testing.

I never forgot. Nor am I discounting it's significance or the skill required to achieve such a feat.

I'm aware it's a frequency record and a suicide run. I'm simply agreeing with those that frequency records and suicide runs have little practical relevance for most, even most OCers.

No.

Helium boils at ~4 Kelvin (the lowest of any element), and there is no practical way to cool any significant collection of matter further. It's several degrees colder than interstellar space.

It's hard for me to argue that the means is somehow more relevant than the reason I bother with it.

As for the OCs themselves, a significant OC can get work done faster and make games more enjoyable (by providing better smoothness, or allowing more detailed settings). The difference between stock and OCed in my work can shave hours or days off longer jobs. The difference between stock and OCed in my games can be the difference between ugly jaggies and no jaggies, or 45 and 60 fps, or being able to stream my games comfortably, or not being able to stream at all.

There's no need to make it that complicated and it'd probably be good to note that I wasn't talking about OCing in general but OCing as a hobby and as entertainment. Extreme OCing and benching, not normal "I'll-oc-my-chip-so-it-runs-games-faster" OCing.

in the end:

Extreme OCing = entertainment
gaming = entertainment

which one you like more is completely up to you but to say that one form of entertainment is more useful than another just seems weird to me.

Not really - those are all extreme operational stress tests - this is more like revving an engine in neutral until it explodes.

Except it won't. It get's its butt handed to it in the 1/4 mile by a Mclaren F1 - a car with 60% the total power. Only in a full mile race does it pull ahead. Just ask top gear.

Now you are free to return to regular discussion. I have offered my opinion on Benching and how it is similar to racing(and that both require a decent amount of skill) but you are still free to holds your own opinions.

Don't think I've ever seen an NHRA top fuel dragster run on anything but nitromethane and a bazillion tons of boost... side note engine cooling is achieved by the fuel itself - nothing like burning 20 gallons of fuel in 4 seconds, and putting out more power than a locomotive can.



For the record, I do think it's pretty sweet that they got a chip to remotely function at 7GHz - But what would really impress me is the whole chip running at that speed, not just one core. Stability at that speed would be mind blowing.

I never forgot. Nor am I discounting it's significance or the skill required to achieve such a feat.
I'm aware it's a frequency record and a suicide run. I'm simply agreeing with those that frequency records and suicide runs have little practical relevance for most, even most OCers.
No.
Helium boils at ~4 Kelvin (the lowest of any element), and there is no practical way to cool any significant collection of matter further. It's several degrees colder than interstellar space.
To express an opinion. If it happens to be a dissenting opinion, so much the better...they provoke more dialog.
I completely and totally disagree.
While I do use my systems for real work, I do not automatically consider such uses to be any more valid than entertainment. Indeed, the work is simply a means to and end, and that end is keeping me comfortable and entertained. It's hard for me to argue that the means is somehow more relevant than the reason I bother with it.
As for the OCs themselves, a significant OC can get work done faster and make games more enjoyable (by providing better smoothness, or allowing more detailed settings). The difference between stock and OCed in my work can shave hours or days off longer jobs. The difference between stock and OCed in my games can be the difference between ugly jaggies and no jaggies, or 45 and 60 fps, or being able to stream my games comfortably, or not being able to stream at all.

Good point, bit of conflicting opinion does make for a more interesting read. Less discussion, thread gets buried, I might not have even seen it. I'll keep it in mind!
