Overclock.net Freezer Burn 2019 Round 2 – GTX 460
The Results Thread!
Welcome to the results thread for the third Overclock.net Freezer Burn overclocking competition! The aim of this competition was to encourage people to explore overclocking on a level playing field with relatively inexpensive hardware. For this instalment we were fighting it out with NVidia GTX 460 graphics cards following the trend that we have set with the previous Freezer Burn competitions.
The GTX 460 has now passed its 9th birthday and the competition has ended, let us see what the final standings were!
Before we have a look at who has won prizes, let us have a look at the glorious rig pictures of some of the competitors:
Here is a very impressive image of
’s LN2 cooled PC – complete with CPU pot cooling the GPU!
didn’t have access to a GTX 460, so instead decided to bench a GT 430 in an old socket 939 motherboard just for the fun of it! I approve!
I couldn’t help myself and had to put in one of
’s rig pics as they always look so organised. Also, a shoutout for opting to go without prizes despite crushing all four stages in the extreme category:
@masbeach98; proved that crazy stuff happens on ambient as well as extreme by attaching an external powerboard to his GTX 460 with copper plate.
The users who managed to finish the competition in the first, second or third positions in either the Ambient or Extreme categories have won a Paypal prize from OCN as laid out below:
- First position - $75.00 Paypal.
- Second position - $50.00 Paypal.
- Third position – $37.50 Paypal.
So the winners of the 1st/2nd/3rd place prizes are as follows:
Congratulations to all of the winners for pulling ahead of everyone else and claiming victory!
There were also three chances for people to win a $20.00 Paypal prize as well as a chance at a set of TeamGroup Vulcan 2x8GB 2400MHz CL14-16-16-31 1.2V (provided by
, thanks!). The lucky draw has now been completed and the winners are as follows:
The link to the random drawing is given below to ensure that it was carried out in a fair process:
The winners of Paypal payments from OCN will be contacted with instructions on how to claim your prize (please note you must follow the instructions perfectly or else your claim might be rejected, also this process can take an extended period so please be patient). The winner of the DDR4 will be contacted for shipping details to allow the prize to be shipped to them.
I would like to take a moment to thank:
for co-managing this competition.
for volunteering to help moderate the competition and donating the DDR4 to the random draw.
for enabling us to provide cash prizes for these comps.
Hopefully everyone had a good time and enjoyed the comp! Some of the stages were new and required a lot of testing, but I think this is good as it keeps the competitions feeling fresh. For the ambient comp I liked the new temp monitoring tool – it would be interesting to see what other people thought of it though.
Next competition I’ll try to actually submit half-decent scores myself, haha.
