Sometimes it’s hard to find interesting overclocking news, so this morning I was happy to see that Sanko had posted his story about an overclocking gathering in Malaysia at the OCDrift.com forums. On the 28th of November, 8 overclockers from Malaysia and Singapore held a small overclocking event/competition in Cheras, Malaysia. NightRaven, clon22, coolice, dblooi, sup3rfly, Lacus, Jonesy and Sanko spent an entire day trying to break the Malaysian overclocking records and, of course, share their passion for overclocking …
- CPUs: Core 2 Duo E8500, Core i7 860, Core i7 950
- Mainboards: P45 Neo2, P55-GD80, X58 Pro-E
- Videocards: Radeon HD 5870, Geforce GTX 275
- Cooling: Air, dry ice, LN2
For 3DMark03, 3DMark Vantage and SuperPI 32M, the Malaysian-Singaporean overclocking team used the available P55-GD80 and Core i7 860, clocked to 4.5GHz for the 3D benchmarks and 4.7GHz for the 2D benchmarks. For Aquamark3, the team switched to the higher clocking Core i7 950 which went up to 5GHz on the X58 Pro-E. In all 3D benchmarks, they used the Radeon HD 5870 clocked 1071MHz on the core and 1332MHz on the memory.
For more information and a lot of pictures of the event, please refer to the original forum post made by Sanko at OCDrift: LINK
I hope the overclockers enjoyed the gathering!
