Maybe Tom do some basic tutorial Vid's on Overclocking Ram and Graphics.

have 3 categories-
#CPU
#Memory
#Graphic

have it based on Stock:Overclock difference so that way anyone can join in not just those with the fastest parts which would be an issue if we were aiming for high frequency. I understand silicon lottery comes into play but as we know you could have the best chip in the world but if you don't know what you're doing you may as well have the worst and those that do know what their doing are able to make those lesser chips run at their max.

It would be a good way to stimulate the forum with alot more people asking questions about OC'ing this or that as well as boosting the wealth of knowledge with in the members. that seems like Win's for everyone, not just the winner/s of the comp.
Honestly, we all know that only those with access to water cooling loops will have a chance of winning. That eliminates over half of OC3D tbh.

That is golden! Something we all despise but yet could be sooo entertaining.

EDIT: Obviously it would have to be moderated to an extent, language, subject and minimum 500 characters.

A comp where only I can enter and only I can win???

Seriously though, photoshop/MS paint comps are always good. Doesn't have to be for the best quality shoop or drawing but for the most humours or creative pic.

Another good one would be to print off the OC3D logo and for people to take a pic with it around and about in strange locations/situations. And as with the photoshop/MS paint comp it could be not for the best quality pic but for the most unique, funny or creative.
You could also do different prize tiers for each one e.g best unique, best funny and most creative overall = 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize.

The one above, CPC used to have a section of users holding the mag in different countries and then a world map covering in red were CPC had been. You probably don't want to copy but something simliar.

I'd like something OC3D branded as a comp, won't be many people out there with one then.

the only problem with that is only people with the money or sponsors who also post on other forums are really going to win....
