Up in March: Northwood Clocking
Yes, yes, yes! Another HWBOT-hosted low-cost challenge in March. In the past two months we were focussing on graphics cards and mainboards, so now it’s time to give the CPU overclockers a chance to shine. This month, we will be tackling the Intel Northwood S478 architecture using wPrime 32M (V1.55).
Similar to the competition in January and February, this is a low-budget competition, so no fancy prizes. Whoever hits the highest reference clock wins a customized achievement.
Underneath is a list of the competition benchmark limitations:
* – Please attach a picture of your overclocking rig.
* – Use HWBOT background provided in competition forum thread
* – Only use processors based on the Northwood (eg. Pentium 4 2.4Ghz B Northwood ) core.
You can read the full list of rules in the rules section of the competition: link.
