Yes that's right it's tough on finding best parts cheap. Then we all battle & scrap for the best high end parts in fs section too.
Part of my writing here is to do with that.
________

$500 processor $400 board $300 rams, hdd, big ass power supplies all cost $ money $.
Then the special cooling, pots & insulation. Dice & LN2 FaKK me $100 right there easy a session.

Man I get it & you all need help. Writing it here in the thread has purpose. To get you guys that concession you need.

You Hardcore Overclockers need to " Recover on broken parts "

I do hope our members in here read this. Please get a sense of urgency. 5 months until our Best overclockers race for glory again.

Have a part & these Overclocker Legends express interest......Help them out OK



Our overclocking members pushing their systems to the limits. 3 years running.
4th year a loss........ no matter what was tried. Beautiful parts dead one after another that body count lines up.

For those members " not knowing about this " That Toll was massive countless thousands of dollars of parts broken.
3 years of hard benching those parts had served their duty.

Punching out the best scores in the world RIP those processors will be remembered.

I hope you all feel a sense of pride in OUR OVERCLOCKERS in AU as I do.

They need your help now more than ever & it's a financial thing to. Lift their spirits with your generosity

Show the world what the Aussies can do. The biggest bloody comeback they will not soon forget.

CC we have no idea what we need this year.... hard to chase gear we don't know we need.

Would be great if CC had enthusiasts and apprentice stages as well as the all out stages. Gives a broader opportunity to someone without LN2 really contributing to a win.

We must try to cover most of it & scramble when we know what we need.
But facts are some of our guys have low budgets. Then there's members like me who will never do LN2

Don't have many modern parts, but the older gpu's that are spare here I'm happy to give to you guys.

If there was a CC overclocking FUND started & Agg + Ma managed it.
Gladly would kick it off with $200 of my own.

To be honest "Having" to win just takes the fun out of it.

It is great to play hard but in the end everyone draws a line in the sand over how much $$ and time they want/can commit.

Paulie plenty of other competitions with our systems to run in. I'm starting to look around at some of those.

LN2 & 6ghz wins. Our processors just cannot do it on watercooling alone.
There is plenty for us to do. Also other members in here want to help.

That Country Cup it's the big one man. Our best on the world stage

I agree that more comps for the rest of us too. ie Ambient cooling
But the focus is " awesomeness " fastest in the world that pulls views & interest mostly.

I would argue the absolute bleeding top end of a lot of sports whilst getting a bit of attention don't draw people in at all. In some ways it makes it look inaccessible.

Ambient comps on OCAU and HWBot are good for trying to coax people into the world of OC. To me a real country cup would have some stages for those people to feel that they actually contribute.

Cc 15 with the enthusiast gpu stage was great and the aussie enthusiasts smashed the rest. Roll on CC16 with all open stages and it leaves a good group of benchers essentially twiddling their thumbs. Sure we benched and put up placeholders but they only counted until the sub zero scores from the top few guys rolled out. Leaves people feeling they didn't contribute to the end result.

Hence my reasoning that CC needs to have another stage or two like that. Not necessarily just for Australia OC but all OC.

I have re-read this post over & over this morning Paulie. It is that good A+
Right at the heart of the problem

Let me critique your paragraphs, add examples

Some of the top guys have sponsorship. ie Help pay for hardware.
10-12-15 guys who know, more some with part sponsorship more maybe 20 or more guys in the world big scores

" and it leaves a good group of benchers essentially twiddling their thumbs." BINGO
Nearly 4000 of us enthusiast guys here in Australia that can contribute.

Do the maths sponsors. 83+ bloody thousand of us upgrade hardware all the time. Incentive $$ air & water cooling can win

Again, you can't make people bench if they don't want to.

Not everyone can contribute, there are limitations whether they be cooling, hardware, money, knowledge and of course the wiliness to bench.

You're thinking one sided there.

You mean well and your enthusiasm is something else but not everyone will be interested enough to continually bench all through the year and the next year and the next etc etc

Why do you do that bilko & others
Hours of writing to promote the cause of best overclockers in here & you flatten it again. Think the big picture as I do. Not about the 1x. About the many.

Edit. A personal note.

A revolution can start with just an idea. That can be expanded. Others can run with it.
If you individual overclockers in here keep that same mindset.......what can be done.

I might as well just give up.
There no point to it all.
No one will join.
No one will care.
Who's interest at all.
No one looks in here & read.
No effort can be made to help us
We are all doomed.
Enthusiasm is shit.
Hell why overclock at all
No one want to improve

Lets just all be negative nellies

Not point to it Shane wasting you time

Not bother to try & help

Seems all deaf & don't care.

Why turn on the pc at all. Oh look there's a phone to play with.

Full of sarcasms & negativity

We all do what we can, and unfortunately, it's up to the population to embrace our hobby. We all talk, and support where people ask, and thanks to the like of Gigabyte, we have support for our small community here no matter the size of participation in our local competitions.

I for one message lots of Rookie and Novices on HWBot to direct them over, but rarely does anyone come to us. We are here to help, guide and encourage, but, if people are only here for a quick dirty scatterbench, there isn't much more that we can do. All we can do is keep a presence, and enjoy what we do.

There is no need for all this "we gotta win" and "be the best". All we want is our hobby to be enjoyable, and if people want to join in on that, they are more than welcome to.
Trust me, the last thing I'm thinking of is just me (pretty sure a few people can attest to that)

Then just leave it alone a positive writing

I don't like my negative post above @ all & will delete it later
______________

Man our guys in here, they want to do more & overclocker better.
If x3 of our members wrote in here expressing interest.

You can bet another x30 are reading & thinking it too.

Underutilised overclocking members, different factions, split teams,
some have direction & drive, but many don't.

Moving forward are we really

Best efffort would be a review of previous CC's with what benches and hardware were required then what we have and see if there are any big gaps of missing hardware.

On track again. See just x1 of our guys thinking what can he do.
__________

Last night guys I was very excited with a Win7 OS my friend done. It's a bit too lean & some aspects of it need work.

But wow I think it can be fast damn fast.

One of the crap video cards here a Gtx285, I just cannot dial it in on the benches. Shit of a thing.
So I'm looking on HWbot at the other good scores. ie. Top x100 in the Aquamark.

Previous best I done nights ago was like 2 HW points junk right. Then lean OS on the Haswell beasty.
I'm looking @ that Aussie score above I could not beat. Hours of trying.

So I start dialing in that shitty 285. Few goes........hmm not bad. Over the next page on scores. 4 points yay.
Onwards more settings tossed in. 10 points. Man were on a rocket here.

11.6 points Then no bloody saves & borked the OS to crap tryingdifferent stuff.
Oh wells

That's part of the reason why I've been building up my collection.

CC likely the new ones will feature Ryzen & them big core Intels.
But there's always a new twist on the stages

That's it Bilko we need an arsenal of parts like an Army.
