Overclock3D & Komplett's "Best Overclocker" Competition - ENTRIES

Are you the best Overclocker?

If so, Overclock3D and Komplett challenge you to enter our latest competition to win one of 5 award winning Abit IP35 Pro motherboards recently reviewed by OC3D in the first round of our competition. If you can prove your skill and manage to be one of the lucky 5, you'll be in with a chance of winning a HIGH END PC UPGRADE courtesy of Komplett and Abit.

Round 1: Overclock your own PC

The first round gives you the opportunity to show us exactly how far you can push your existing hardware. In this round we're looking for the highest percentage (%) overclock from your stock processor speed. Your chosen processor can be any model from AMD or Intel providing it is based on either the LGA775, Socket939 or AM2 platform, and you can enter your results as many times as you like.

For example: if your PC is based around an Intel Core2Duo E4300 CPU with a stock speed of 1.8ghz, and you manage to push the CPU speed up to 2.8ghz , this would count as a 55% overclock.

There are no restrictions on the type of cooling or other components used, so feel free to be as creative and extreme as you like.

All we ask is that you provide CPU-Z verified 'stock' and 'overclocked' shots of your processor in action. The overclock doesn't even have to be stable, so long as you can boot into windows and run CPU-Z you're in with a chance!! Further information on CPU-Z verification and downloading of the CPU-Z program.

Winners of the Round 1 will be announced on November 27th based on the the current leader board table.

Round 2: Let's Overclock the Abit IP35-Pro

If you've managed to rise above the rest of the entrants in the first round of our competition and come out in the top 5, you will recieve an Abit IP35 Pro motherboard from Komplett.co.uk to play with. This top motherboard is your key to winning the top prize of a Komplett.co.uk High-End System Upgrade (Abit IX38-QuadGT, Crucial Ballistix PC2-8500 2GB, Intel Core2Duo Q6600, Abit iDome DS500 Speaker Set) which will be handed out when the competition ends on December 14th.

To be in with a chance of winning, we want you to use your existing hardware combined with the Abit IP35 Pro motherboard sent to you by Komplett to achieve the highest possible score (lowest time) in SuperPI Mod 1M. Once again any type of cooling goes, and we'll be looking for screenshots of both SuperPI and CPU-Z for validation of your results. Further information on how to use SuperPI will be posted in our forums nearer the time.

Ok clearly people have not seen the massive EXAMPLE ENTRY - All posts not in that / similar format have been and will continue to be deleted

you must include both stock AND overclocked screenshots for a valid entry

and screenshots of just the CPUz window please, not interested in your wallpaper and the forum enforces an image size limit
