Distracted by all the high-profile Titan overclocking action going on this weekend, we would almost forget that the Team Cup 2013 is in the final stretch. The Team Cup is centered around the overclocking teams rather than individuals and is this year mainly focused on old records and hardware. The unofficial motto of HWBOT is "Records are meant to be broken" and that is something I.nfraR.ed from Bulgaria took to heart. He managed to set a new SuperPI 1M top score for the Thoroughbred CPU architecture. Even though SuperPI might not be so relevant today, back in days of the "T-bred" cpus it was a very popular benchmark amongst power users and overclockers.
Cooled by the Kingpincooling Dragon F1 and mounted on the legendary ABIT NF7-S motherboard, the Bulgarian AMD master squeezed 3.1GHz out of his Athlon XP 1800+ processor. He is running the FSB at a frequency of 260MHz, which is very high considering the memory is running in sync (1:1). As the old school overclockers probably know, a high FSB frequency is mandatory for a good SuperPI efficiency! It seems that there might still be a bit left in this CPU as I.nfraR.ed indicates in a comment: "Really quick one. 3150 crashed at 18th loop on empty pot and temperature already rising".
In any case, congratulations for this excellent result!
