Atomic and GIGABYTE wants you for a night of EXTREME OVERCLOCKING!

Now that's a cool event! Dinos22 is really pushing overclocking in Australia ... awesome!

That’s right – we’re breaking out the liquid nitrogen, some of the best PC hardware on the planet, and even working with Australia’s best overclockers so that you, dear readers, can learn how to take PC performance to the next level. We’ll supply everything you need to learn all about sub-zero computing – just come along on the night, and see if we can break a few records along the way!

We’ll have veteran OC guru, Dino Strkljevic from GIGABYTE, our own Matt Wilson, as well as members of TEAM AU on hand, to oversee the action at Atomic HQ. Plus all the LN2 you can poke a very cold stick at.

How to enter? Entry is simple, all you need to do is run 3DMark 11 benchmark tool on your PC and submit your results to Matt Wilson. Simple right? Well, there is a catch. In order to be eligible, you need to send your system specs along in your email, along with your 3DMark 11 Score. You can use any pre-set or custom settings you choose, along with any hardware and frequency settings you desire. Our only demand, is that you do not go over 9000 (If you go over 9000 Vegeta will instantly disqualify you). The closest scores to 9000 without breaking that magic number will be declared the winners, and you shall be invited to Atomic HQ for our exclusive overclocking day!

yeap sure am, gotta get the word out there. Let's see how this whole IB launch and LN2 stuff comes together as far as community being invigorated again to bench. I'm guessing HWBOT will be busy in general. Should be fun :)

Australia JJJC says:

This is awesome, Dinos and TeamAU have really been pushing things in Australia lately and it's great to see. I'm still not quite sure how big the extreme overclocking "scene" is in Australia, but it seems to be a pretty select few doing it regularly atm so it's great to see somebody kicking some life into extreme ocing now.

Props to AtomicPC too. This is great to see.

Dinos, just want to understand whats with the 9000 point barrier???? Just a random number organisers picked???

Austria oanvoanc says:

simon says: get 8999 points in 3dmark11 and you can go to atomic hq :)

Australia Dinos22 says:

it was picked by Atomic and you know what it's pretty clever. You guys notice how it doesnt say if you have to do E or P or X preset or how many cards etc ;)

United Kingdom borandi says:

Benchmark results must be from 3DMark 11.
Score must be under 9000.
Entries must be submitted both via email and this competition page.
There are no other rules.

- Entry is only open to Australian residents. Employees and their immediate families of the Promoter, participating outlets and their agencies associated with this promotion are ineligible.

Drat, I got excited for a second then.
