It's time for the AMD X4 Battle Royale Geekbench 3 round!
Benchmark for this round - Geekbench 3 , we will use the 32 bit version as it is the only one available without purchasing the software.
Linky - http://www.primatelabs.com/geekbench/
The general Idea is to give the average overclocking enthusiast a chance to compete without being trounced by the big leaguer's that run extreme cooling etc. I'm hoping this will be a low-key good natured competition , fun for the members that don't usually participate. I think it will be a good opportunity for some members to learn how to get a little more oomph out of their system or maybe it will whet someone's appetite for competitive overclocking. On that note I would encourage anyone who is interested to join OCN's hwbot team - I've had a lot of fun particularly in the team cup competitions.
Eligible hardware :
Any AMD quad core cpu. X2 and X3's unlocked to X4's are legal , however native X6 and X8 with disabled cores will not be allowed.
Cooling: No extreme cooling methods allowed - LN2, Dry ice, etc is forbidden. Air cooling and water cooling are allowed. Using cold ambient air or chilled liquid is legal however in the unlimited clockspeed class, proof of core temp during the run of greater than 0C will be required.
Bracket racing with classes for 3 ghz, 4ghz, 4.5 ghz and unlimited maximum clockspeeds.
Participants will be limited to submitting scores for one clockspeed bracket .
2 screenshots, one during the benchmark and one with the final score.:
Cpu-z with cpu and memory tabs open
World clock and windows time/date visible in screenshot.
Windows time/date visible in the screenshot submissions ( final score screenshots must be taken within 2 minutes of the during screen shots)
Must use a competition background.Submission requirement update!
The geekbench scoring window needs to show a timestamp, processor and clockspeeds as shown in the picture below
I intended to include this from the get go, but I goofed. Apologies for any inconveniences
