This is a bit of a trial run for competitions among the X4 AMD cpu owners in these forums.<br><br>
As I'm an amateur at setting up such an endeavor, I thought it would be best to run a short competition to begin with, see what I learn and then make any changes necessary before going forward with the next one.<br>
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.<br><br>
Eligible hardware :<br>
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.<br><br>
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.<br><br>
Competition features:<br>
Bracket racing with classes for 3 ghz, 4ghz, 4.5 ghz and unlimited maximum clockspeeds.<br>
Participants will be limited to submitting scores for one clockspeed bracket .<br><br>
Submission requirements:<br>
Cpu-z with cpu and memory tabs open<br>
World clock and windows time/date visible in screenshot.<br>
Competition background found here
<a class="spoiler-link H-spoiler-toggle" href="#"><strong>Warning: Spoiler!</strong> <span class="spoiler-help">(Click to show)</span></a><div class="spoiler-hidden"><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/2694945/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="2694945" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/2694945/width/350/height/700/flags/LL" style="; width: 350px; height: 197px"></a></div>
<br>
Submissions should be made in this format<br><br>
Forum name - Bracket - Benchmark - score - cpu - clockspeed<br><br>
Example:<br>
cssorkinman - Unlimited - Superpi 1M - 19.354 seconds - FX-8370 - 4816 mhz ( just used my 8370 as an example- no it's not legal for comp <img alt="tongue.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/tongue.gif"> )
<a class="spoiler-link H-spoiler-toggle" href="#"><strong>Warning: Spoiler!</strong> <span class="spoiler-help">(Click to show)</span></a><div class="spoiler-hidden"><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/2694958/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="2694958" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/2694958/width/350/height/700/flags/LL" style="; width: 350px; height: 219px"></a><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/2694959/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="2694959" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/2694959/width/350/height/700/flags/LL" style="; width: 350px; height: 219px"></a></div>
The proof of cpu temp is required for people running in the unlimited clockspeed class. All other clockspeed classes will be required to have a screenshot during the benchmark run with worldclock and cpuz tabs open. ( it was about the only way I could think of to keep people from fudging on clockspeeds lol )<br><br>
The first round of these competitions will be superpi 1M starting today and running through Sunday February 7th at 7pm central standard time.<br><br>
I'll probably make a few mistakes along the way, appreciate the effort , go easy on me <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
Good luck and have fun!<br><br><br>

Is the world clock an absolute requirement? I ask because my test bench isn't connected to the internet.

Same score. Although it was slightly lower without as much crap running. But the rules apply to everyone so whatever.<br>
tried 270x11 with the ram at 719 cl4 but the time was identical.

Have to ask, cause I have never been in one of these and don't know how categories work: is it 4ghz only for that category, or 4 - 4.4ghz ?<br><br>
Will edit my comment with the results.</div>

The 4 ghz bracket is for submissions at 4 ghz and below.<br><br><div class="quote-container" data-huddler-embed="/t/1589348/amd-x4-battle-royale-unofficial#post_24838766" data-huddler-embed-placeholder="false"><span>Quote:</span>

I think you are a natural at this, you set a wonderful example! The only thing I would ask is that the result dialog box be moved to allow us to see all the iterations.<br>
I ... however made the mistake of not posting the proper version of the benchmark in the op... <img alt="redface.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/redface.gif"> we will be running the version currently being used on HWBOT which is 1.5 I believe.<br>
Here is a link to the download page * I will add it to the op* please accept my apologies, I didn't realize they had a newer version.<br>
<a href="http://hwbot.org/benchmarks" target="_blank">http://hwbot.org/benchmarks</a><br><br>
I'm VERY encouraged by the amount of interest <img alt="thumb.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/thumb.gif">

<p>Any version of SuperPi?  The usual standard is to use 1.55, I think that the newest version doesn't compare well to the older ones.  (One is faster/slower than other, can't remember which way)</p>
<p> </p>

My mistake , one of many to come I'm sure. I didn't realize they had an update to it .<br><br>
I appreciate you keeping an eye on me. For those who don't know, Rasparthe has been a great coach and resource ( among others) for people trying their hand at competitive benching here at OCN.

<p>Nothing to worry about, and not keeping an eye on you can't wait to see how this goes, I have a 965 here that hasn't been fired up in quite some time!  Probably getting lonely in the closet. <img alt=":thumb:" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style=""></p>

The 4GHz bracket I think, 3.5-3.8GHz falls into that category correct?

That's part of why I thought perhaps this would have a fairly good reception - so many people have them.<br>
I see it as generally being a good platform to learn on too. Fairly forgiving to voltage and temps and the older ones having FSB , NB and memory tweaks yielding performance gains, it can keep you busy for a long time looking for the best combo. Also quite affordable <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/smile.gif"><br>
I'm interested to see how the older chips can stack up given a good tune-up.<br><br>
EDIT:<a data-huddler-embed="href" href="/u/428484/DR4G00N">@DR4G00N</a> yes that is the bracket you would be running in - 4ghz if your clockspeed was 3.8ghz

Heya CSS, cool competition! <img alt="biggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
If I may make a suggestion--since you're doing Super Pi 1M, allowing higher core counts to enter will help the level of participation without skewing the results as 1M is a single threaded benchmark!<br><br>
No worries either way, just a thought <img alt="thumb.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/thumb.gif">

Great to see you here <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/smile.gif">.<br>
I thought about that too as it won't effect a superpi score much at all having it open to X6's etc. but I was hoping to limit it to an X4 battle with several rounds that will have multi-core elements later on - perhaps even having an overall winner as a total of all scores.<br>
I chose superpi 1 m because it's quick and actually a very good tool for tuning up a rig and it's fairly simple for the newcomers . I might switch things up if we need more competitors or need to generate more interest.<br><br>
I might open the brackets to different chips from the same forum members if there aren't enough subs coming in for them.<br><br>
Always appreciate your input, Thankyou !<br><br>
Edit: Aleslammer World clock is a website <a href="http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/" target="_blank">http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/</a> Just to verify the clockspeed during the run.<br><a data-huddler-embed="href" href="/u/465116/VordaVor">@VordaVor</a> those brackets are maximum clockspeeds allowed for the benchmark. Don't worry that you haven't done this before , you are just the type of forum member I was hoping would participate! Looking forward to seeing you compete!

Just a quick run with my A8-3870K while I was straightening the pins on the FX 8150 I received today (<-- I can't complain since it was free).<br><br>
DR4G00N - 4GHz - Super Pi 1M - 20.078s - A8-3870K - 3675MHz<br>
(1.63V on a 3+1 Phase mobo lol)<br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/2695127/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="2695127" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/2695127/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 281px"></a><br><br>
Not my best score so i'll try for 3.8GHz later.

Aim to overclock your ram too guys, it has a good impact on time!<br><br>
Also, remember, we're aiming for high superpi only stable clocks, not full clocks so don't be too afraid to push your hardware. (stay reasonable though, by all means)

I will be looking for guidance on which version of SuperPi to use as well. Right now I use 1.5 mod XS since it's the fastest one I know of that is not heavily prone to cheating like I think 1.9 is . . .<br><br>
look for me in unlimited speed class. Gonna try to shoot for 4.765 GHz if I can get it stable.

Perhaps I'm being dense... how does the World Clock verify the speed of your processor?

Just a quick run with my A8-3870K while I was straightening the pins on the FX 8150 I received today (<-- I can't complain since it was free).<br><br>
DR4G00N - 4GHz - Super Pi 1M - 20.078s - A8-3870K - 3675MHz<br>
(1.63V on a 3+1 Phase mobo lol)<br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/2695127/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="2695127" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/2695127/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 281px"></a><br><br>
Not my best score so i'll try for 3.8GHz later.</div>

That's a pretty good clock for that chip- I had 2 of them and they are tough to get clockspeed out of . I'll post the score, but it will have to remain unofficial until you can get world clock in the screen shot somehow.

It really doesn't, just makes it harder to cheat. If it's open while you take a screenshot of the benchmark in progress along with the cpu-z and temperature monitoring programs open, it's the best way I could think of to prevent cheating by downclocking after the bench is over to take the SS. Going forward, I'd be open to suggestion on how best to keep people from the temptation of cheating on clockspeeds.
