Turrican wins HWBOT OC Challenge May 2010

As the start of every month, on 1st of May HWBOT launched the newest OC Challenge. Challenge of this month: SuperPI 1M and PiFast using an Athlon XP platform; maybe even attempt to break the current world records of German overclocker SAE. Austrian Hardware Master Turrican took the win, but not the world records unfortunately.

It was Jaan, however, who was on top the longest with his AMD Athlon XP 2500+ setup. Having tested even liquid nitrogen, it seemed that the CPU completely maxed out at 3GHz resulting in a 33.516s 1M and 47.25s PiFast score. Jaan finished third overall.

Second overall was German overclocker Berserker who pushed his XP-Mobile 2600+ to a solid 3.05GHz, only a few MHz above Jaan. Thanks to an FSB frequency of 250+ MHz, he managed to score a bit better than his Estonian competitor: 33.31s 1M and 47.03s PiFast

But, as said in the introduction, it was Turrican who took the win. The current leader of the Hardware Masters League pushed his 2600+ Barton to 3.1GHz resulting in a sub-33s 1M (32.907s) and sub-47s Pifast (46.28s). According to Turrican, there’s still a bit left in the setup, so he will be going for better scores using liquid nitrogen soon!

Austria Turrican says:

thx guys. :) i hope i can ln2 it soon. :D i did some fsb tests on my nf7-s the last days as well. max. fsb atm is around ~261mhz (super pi 1m) with extremly tight timings. there i seem to hit a wall, more vdd voltage doesn't help. i even mounted my single stage on the northbridge, but no gain. :D

Germany Berserker says:

Gratz Turrican. Freakin good NF7-S . :thumpsup: The Wall around 260 is shit,i know. I have the same. When you can drive CL2 on 260 the WR is near,with a good CPU.

In a few Weeks i mod my DFI,so i can give the CPU more than only 2V. I hope the CPU is good for 3,3-3,4.

Austria Turrican says:

thx. :)
here's the fsb-test i did with a xp-m 1800+ @ air.

that was with everything maxed (even the alpha timings).
loosening the timings doesn't bring anything. with single channel i can hit ~268, but it's slower of course.
