HWBOT declares Overclock.net 2015 OC-ESPORTS Champion

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

As many are already aware, HWBOT.org, is essentially a massive database housing overclocking records, first places and bragging rights for just about any CPU, GPU, RAM or motherboard you could imagine.  You can find records on old, new, modern, and obsolete hardware.  Thousands of pieces of hardware are ranked against each other in the greatest online database of overclocking achievements that can be found on the 'net.

 

Every year, HWBOT.org begins its search for the greatest overclockers and overclocking teams in the entire world.  Teams and individuals can accumulate points for this total by competing in a wide variety of official competitions that are offered during the course of the year.

 

This year, 450 teams competed against each other for the top spot as 2015 OC-ESPORTS Champion.  After one entire year of competitions, Overclock.net managed to live up to its motto of "The Pursuit of Performance" by taking the title.

 

HWBOT.org has highlighted the win with an article on the competition site, OC-ESPORTS.  (You can find the article here).  Just to emphasize some of the hard work and incredible achievements over this year of overclocking at Overclock.net here is the best of 'pursuits of performance' for 2015.

 

1 - Noxinite takes on Novice Nimbles

 

The Novice Nimbles are dedicated to the up-and-coming overclockers at HWBOT.org.  Once they leave the Rookie status behind, overclockers are able to compete in the Novice Nimbles.

 

Noxinite missed the inaugural Novice Nimble but was front and center for Novice Nimble #2.  OCN novices managed to take 3rd place in the 2nd Novice Nimble with the help of @nifnat and @TheN00bBuilder and others.  Just a warm up for the real scores to come.

 

 

Overclock.net continued to impress through Novice Nimble #3 and #4, not only Noxinite bringing some top scores but others like @Hilderman and @WhiteWulfe and @Wiggles5289.  Everyone contributing to put OCN closer and closer to finally overtaking the reigning champion that was Cowcutland of France.

 

Unfortunately, you only remain a Novice for one year.  When your year is up you are automatically promoted to one of the higher leagues.  Despite not even being able to compete, Noxinite still took on a leadership role, creating popular threads for the Nimble #5 and #6.  With a great deal of organization, pushing, advising, cajoling and motivating the Novices managed to put up some pretty substantial scores.  It resulted in two straight competition wins and a vibrant novice community of overclockers at OCN that are constantly showing why this forum continues to be the place to land for rookie overclockers.

 

2 - Rasparthe wins World Tour stop at LanETS Montreal.

 

 

2015 saw the introduction of a new series of live events held all across the world. Each stop featured a three stage live competition centered around an unlimited supply of LN2. The lone North American stop was in Montreal Canada at the massive 1000+ gamer LanETS.

 

After three days of almost non-stop overclocking, it became apparent that the first stage was the one to focus on. It required the participants to use the SuperPi 1M benchmark to gather the most hardware points they could get for one single piece of hardware. It was an interesting stage since it required not just a good score among all the World Tour participants, but it must be a great score compared to every other score ever submitted to the HWBOT.org database.

 

Since you could choose any piece of hardware to focus on, the second stage was perfect for one of the most popular sockets to date, Socket LGA775. The secret was to find a piece of hardware that was popular enough to allow for a large amount of points, but not so popular that an incredible score would be needed to rank highly.

 

Rasparthe chose to tackle this stage using a Pentium e5200 which matched this criteria perfectly. Popular enough that top score would net nearly 50 points, but compared to the 22,000 submissions using the e8600, had a measly 4700 submissions. Pairing the e5200 with an Asus Rampage Extreme motherboard and a set of OCZ Elpida Hypers was the right combination. His score managed to take 2nd place in the category, for 39.7 points, and pushed him into the win in the first 2015 World Tour event.

 

 

3 - Overclock.net places 2nd in Team Cup

 

You can find a detailed write-up on the Team Cup in which Overclock.net managed a 2nd place finish in a field of 75 other competitive teams here.  The effort spanned over 30 different stages all requiring unique hardware and benchmarks.

 

There were a couple of impressive scores that supplied top points for OCN and really made the difference when the dust settled.

 

@xxbassplayerxx pushes QX9650 to 5459Mhz to win the Socket 775 Cinebench stage.

 

 

@Noxinite pushes Crucial Ballistix DDR2 to 827.3Mhz , 6th fastest ever recorded, and wins the DDR2 Frequency Stage.

 

 

4 - Overclock.net on the Road to Pro

 

One of the defining themes of the HWBOT.org competition season is the "Road to Pro". The idea is simple. Provide a roadmap from normal benchmarking for points to a competition series that points to the upper echelons of overclocking. That pathway is called the Challenger Series. Recognizing that interests, and bank accounts, vary greatly, there are 7 different divisions, each with 3 rounds that cumulate into a Division winner.

 


 

 

@Noxinite - 9th Place - 156 pts

 

Division 2 is limited to Core i5 and mid-level GPUs and Noxinite bested 178 other competitors.  Adding to the achievement, he was competing from the Enthusiast League, which requires overclockers to run their setups on water or air, and makes your tuning all the more important.

 

 


 

 

 

@QuantumX - 11th Place - 169 pts

 

Division 3 is all about the low power systems, and specifically highlighted the Pentium G3258.  QuantumX took the unlocked Pentium all the way to 6 Ghz to move into 11th place during the Division 3 season.

 

 


 

 

@cssorkinman - 7th Place - 176 Pts

 

Division 4 is limited to all AMD gear and cssorkinman pushed a water-cooled FX8370E over 5Ghz.  A strong placement considering cssorkinman didn't even put up any scores for the 3rd round of the 2015 season.  

 

 


 

 

 

@rt123 - 10th Place - 136 Pts

 

Division 6 challenges the relatively new field of mobile device overclocking.  The Qualcomm Snapdragon is among the most popular ARM chips and RT moved his up to 2880 Mhz for the 2015 Division 6 season.  Rooted OnePlus One + custom kernel + fridge = 10th overall.

 

 

 


 

 

Rasparthe - 1st Place - 514 Pts

 

Division 7 is all about the legacy hardware, Socket LGA775 to Socket A.  Rasparthe took first place in Round 1 and 2, and second place in Round 3, enough to grab the Division 7 title for 2015.

 

 

 


 

Not only did Overclock.net do well as a team during the 2015 season of competition overclocking but there were quite a few individual achievements in past year.  

 

One such achievement happened during one of the forum competitions here at Overclock.net.  During the 8800 Destruction Competition, OCN overclocker and Benchmarks Editor @strong island 1 did an incredible mod of his 8800 GTS 512MB card that included zombie modding a 3rd party voltage regulation card onto the stock, and weaker, 8800 one.  The resulting stable power and LN2 cooling allowed him to push the card to new heights as he displayed the very fastest Geforce 8800 card the world has ever seen.

 

 

Another Overclock.net bencher, Dhenzjhen, had an eventful year when he revealed to the world that the new Skylake processors could be overclocked.  Normally, only Intel's "K" series were given the option to allow overclocking but Dhenzjhen proved that you could overclock the locked Pentiums and Core i3s through BCLK adjustments.  He managed the feat using a Supermicro C7H170-M and an Core i3 6320, perhaps creating the highest-demand feature in the last 5 years and putting the normal enthusiast motherboard manufacturers, like Asus, MSI, Gigabyte and Asrock, at a loss and racing to catch up.

 

 

2015 proved to be an incredible year in the 'pursuit of performance' at Overclock.net.  The 2015 competition title at HWBOT is just more proof that the overclock in overclock.net is still alive and well.  

 

Keep on pushing in 2016.

2015 was quite good, but I'm looking forward to 2016 with me finally going subzero! wheee.gif

Thanks @PizzaMan!

Wow... what a year. I was absent for a good part of it so I completely missed @rasparthe cleaning things up!

Great job everyone thumb.gif
