lol what a milestone, just commented a couple of days ago about the amd s939 being the last time amd beat intel, when the X2's came out being better than the Pentium d's until the core 2's came out. just seen the ryzen beating intel again, soooo good to see! wow can't believe it to be honest!!! woohoooo!!!

Shane41 your older cards don't need Ln2, just something cold like even icy water would get most the points. Make a chilled water setup for about -30 or DICE (if the card likes it) and you would be good. Knowing you Shane 10 cards would be the first crate of GPU's opened

But big prizes = big comp = big challenge

Guys, check the hardware points you can get with a i5 6600 and the XTU benchmark.
and you can also score great in benchmarks like 3dmark06 with a modern 4 or 6 core cpu and an older graphics card like something from the Nvidia 7xxx series.

Love your enthusiasm man .........but mine is waning
http://www.dictionary.com/browse/waned

I know the Overclocker Lords in here deserve to win .... as they bust so much shit every year.

Yes you'll get more people in this comp " for the win new Amd factor "
I keep saying it every year....... fill your AU OC ranks with new members to encourage that " non frozen " prizes that they have a good chance of winning. If they are going to redline their $2K system then they must feel it is worth the risk. That's how I thought at the beginning of all this.

If your chasing hardware points. Then you look on Hwbot for what hardware you have.
ie. Hardware columb / your part / then benchmark / then rankings.

http://hwbot.org/submission/2312885_...ra_33938_marks

example. I won't go frozen. So best I can hope is watercool. But I cannot
make 5.5ghz on my processor........so a score I am aiming/hoping for 15 Harware points.

It's search with what you have got & try for your best points x10 submissions

Im a bit unclear as to how this competition works exactly.

So you are meant to submit 10 scores, but 10 scores in what?

Which benchmarks, because when i look at the other competitions on hwbot they all list a set of benchmarks and the highest score for that benchmark wins.

Can you give an example of an entry in this competition with the 10 scores?

So you choose what ever benchmarks and hardware you want ( I suggest picking ones with more Hardware points allocated)

Here is how HW points work:
Quote:
B) Hardware Points

Hardware points are awarded based on your position in a hardware ranking. The hardware ranking is defined by the hardware item, the benchmark application, and in case the benchmark is multi-threaded, by the active CPU or GPU core count. For example, the SuperPI 1M Core i7 4770K (click) has a single hardware ranking for this specific combination of hardware and benchmark because the benchmark is single threaded. The 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme GeForce GTX 980 Ti (click) features four hardware rankings for this combination of hardware and benchmark because the benchmark is multi-threaded.

At the moment, 43 benchmark applications have Hardware Points enabled. In total, there are 44,446 hardware rankings with Hardware Points. (August 30, 2015)

Hardware Points are awarded based on two parameters: position in the hardware ranking and the weight of the hardware ranking. The position is determined by how well you rank amongst your fellow overclockers using the same benchmark and hardware. The weight of the ranking is determined by the amount of participants in the hardware ranking (all time). For more information on the algorithm, please refer to Section 8) Hardware Points Formula.

The maximum Hardware Points for first place in any hardware ranking is 50 points. The minimum Hardware Points for first place in any hardware ranking is 2 points. Currently 49568 overclockers earn 1,705,121 Hardware Points. (August 30, 2015)

The Hardware Points rankings can be found on the hardware overview page. From the front page you can access any hardware overview page by using the search bar in the top right corner. Type a part of the hardware name and click on the dropdown item. For example, this is the Core i7 4770K overview page. On this page you find a list of all hardware rankings, split up by benchmark (list) and core count (tab) in case the benchmark is multi-threaded.

On any overclocking result page (or “submission”), you can find the awarded Hardware Points under the section Points Earned. In the field next to “Hardware Points (UHP)”, you find the total amount of Hardware Points the overclocking result is worth.
You bench your hardware using the comp background (bench really hard)

You can submit more than 10 scores, but only your top 10 will be counted.

Most comps have limitations on hardware, benchmarks and or cooling, this one doesn't.

It's up to you entirely. eg I'm useless at XTU so I'll try on 3D marks.

Hardware points matey. This is a search on Hwbot & see what you can do mission.

eg Old Agp cards had very little submissions & the scores were lower.
So little hardware points like 5 if you try that.

Big cpu's 4 cores high ghz & some of the older 9800/8800 nvidia can score well
in certain benchmarks.

It's what you search & can do.
Board + Cpu + Gpu/s + Benchmark. Find x10 that you can do well.
But you look at the rule for each benchmark

wonder if my x1900xtx cf or gtx480 still work could also get a 5770 a go in a 6700k but since it cant do over 4.8ghz on water i probably wont get far enough to be worthwhile vs all those hex core on ln2

Ln2 scores are the bomb.

So what can we do? Research in the Hwbot rankings & find possible points.
Non frozen prize for rest of us to aim for.......that would definitely help to try our best.

Still I'll give it a bash on a cool night. Race against myself if anything & see what some nice parts can do finally.

Shane41 A cold night benching with a nice red wine or two. I think you will be a winner, no matter what
