    BENCHMARKS:
    There are essentially no rules for the enthusiast competition so you can run any benchmark you want to post. If you like your PC running stock thats cool too post pics of the rig but you better have overclocking experience or you will get smashed in Sydney (juuuuuuuust kidding lol).

    REMEMBER > Three people qualify for live event which means you are all guaranteed prizes and the prizes are going to be sweeeeeeeet :D


    The idea here is to pull off your PC cover and OC what you have, OC the HDD, video card, CPU, girlfriend's vibrator, use your imagination. Pics of the rig are mandatory and the more involvement the better the chance of being selected. Online poll will be created to pick two finalists and the third finalist will be selected by judges. This is a popularity contest people so dress to impress :lol:

    • HWBOT score submission rules apply.
    • Contestant must register on HWBOT to submit scores. If this is an issue please contact me asap.

    3) GAMING PCs to try your skills on -GIGABYTE will provide a bunch of gaming machines for people to have some fun with dressed up in some slick Antec cases :leet:

    With the ENTHUSIAST AIR Competition with cooling did I read it right? So I could use my cascade on the CPU and two headed SS on GPUs?

    I'll enter, but no chance of going since I don't have the money to spare.

    EDIT: Oh well no point anyway, just read I need to be 18 :(

    ENTHUSIAST comp you can use or do whatever you want. There are no formal benchmarks at all. You could even just put up photos of rigs....up to you

    I will choose a bunch of ppl and put up a poll to vote for two guys and I will select one I think put in the most effort in this thread to make it through

    We will have a quick vote at the beginning of May to choose the 3 finalists to come to the live event......

    For those of you not in Sydney you will get $100 towards the trip plus the prizes themselves will be pretty nice with a mix of cash and goods which are yet to be finalised....so it might pay to come to Sydney as you are practically guaranteed a prize (3 spots) :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:

    Thanks, I didn't see the $100 bit, however the trip down there would be cheap since i live in Brisbane. However the accommodation will be what costs me all the money :( Also I might be able to find someone over 18 to go with me, however thats more money i'd have to pay :(

    EDIT: Also I'd have to use air cooling down there, boring. Can't bring my 100KG of cooling with me lol

    Anyway should be fun for those attending :thumbup:

    Can we add a rule that ppl must have special background set so they cant use old results, like what was done in the kingpin competition :thumbup:

    http://kingpincooling.com/forum/showthread.php?t=524

    Otherwise its not really a competition just ppl loading there already best achieved results over the last 3 months or longer.

    below pic would make a great screen background ;)

    image


    Im interested to know why the Food and drink tab was upped to $6,000 from previous compertitions, but there has been a dramaic cut in the travel budget?
    In the past gigabyte covered ppls flights and accommodation, Why the change this year?
    Up to $500 travel budget for extreme Ovclockers and poor enthusiasts only get $100.
    A hotel in Sydney for a few nights will be close $500. Then you add the cost of flights booked at the last minute you will have to pay a premium, especially if you have to fly across Australia??
    Im sure gigabyte could cover the travel cost for ppl..

    There are always some aspects which people are not happy about. What can I say. The rules have been set and will stay the way they are. Previous years have not provided any budget for enthusiasts at all and prizes were worse so that was boosted. $2000 budget for 4 people is reasonable. It was based on one night twin share with a budget airline averaged out between Brisbane/Melbourne/Adelaide/Perth within one or two weeks notice on the weekend. You should look around worldwide and see what other countries are doing for their local GOOC. Not a single country has competitions nearly as good as this.

    Bar tab was upped in anticipation of you drinking half the bar tab alone :lol::p:lol:

    Gigabyte has booked a really nice venue, found good sponsors for the prizes, heaps of industry and media will attend and an opportunity to put a name to a face with hundreds of forum guys.


    Felix, no i cant compete in my own competition. That wouldn't be right would it :lol:. Are you coming to the event man? I'd love to see the Online Computer boys come around.

    Another thing that will change this year is that competitors will effectively get 4 hours of benching and they can go back and forth between the benchmarks. I'll cover this more when you guys come to Sydney ;)

    Rules are set and it will stay the way they are. No one could have had any decent results until recently anyway as Core i7 980X has only been released recently and bioses and mods required. Just to give you an idea, up until maybe one or two weeks ago 32M Superpi was over 10 seconds slower clock for clock than it is now. Those bioses have only been public for a week maybe

    Let's see what you got Kayl. You can surely take down some old scores of ppls commmon hasnt stopped ya before mate
